A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance #3
By Debra Clopton
Years ago Jarrod Monahan made the biggest mistake of his life and he drove Cassidy Starr into the arms of another man. He's had years to regret his decision, but he's been given a second chance.
Unfortunately for Jarrod, Cassidy isn't willing to give him another chance to break her heart. She's determined to make a new life for herself on the farm she's inherited from her Aunt Roxie. And she's determined that romance has no place in her new life.
But Jarrod is nothing if not persistent as is evidenced by the current state of the Four of Hearts Ranch. He put romance and a family of his own into the background as he focused on saving the ranch his father almost gambled away. But Cassidy as a next door neighbor just might change Jarrod's priority list.
But Jarrod has another concern battling for priority in his life - cattle rustlers have moved in and they are costing the Four of Hearts thousands of dollars. Can Jarrod determine who is threatening everything he's fought for and still get the girl of his dreams? He is about to find out.
This is the third and final book in the Four of Hearts Ranch series that brings the Monahan brothers story to a conclusion that fans of the previous books should enjoy.
I was provided a copy of this book by the Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . .
not for a cowboy to steal her heart.Having lived through her parents' endless string of "matrimonial bliss gone wrong," Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She's been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she's inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She'll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt's footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan's hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He's pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that's a challenge that Jarrod can't pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy's stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy's kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.
