What a wonderful story! I absolutely loved this book. The author swept me away from the beginning with her amazing writing style and complex characters. The plot line is filled with rich historic elements. I felt like I was transported back into historic Arizona, and I didn't want to leave!
Chance Worth is most definitely a hunky, gorgeous cowboy that I would love to claim for myself! He filled a spot in my heart immediately, and I didn't want to say goodbye to him at the end. Watching him with Lizzie, knowing she was an innocent young woman, trying not to fall for her, was awesome. I cheered for him the whole way through the book. Being orphaned though, he's got a lot of secrets bottled up, and well, with Lizzie, he just wants to let go and be honest.
Lizzie Mitchell. Hmmmm. Now that is a young woman with spitfire written all over her! From the first chapter, when Chance had to rescue her from near drowning, to her sending Chance away after she fell in love with him. Well, I just wanted to shake her and tell her to wake up or send him my way! Lizzie has a good heart and knows that saving the ranch is important to her now that her grandfather has taken severely ill, and she knows that she needs to rely on Chance, but she's just not ready to do it!
Can Chance show her what it's like to have a real cowboy in her life? Or will Lizzie be unable to claim her cowboy as her own?
I absolutely recommend this read! It's a wonderful love story set in another era, and filled with lovable characters. This is most definitely worthy of 5 stars and I am happy to say that it's a keeper! I can't wait to see what other books are in store for this new series, as I am not ready to say goodbye to the Worth's just yet! Well done, Ms. Sands!
