As a young woman she faced an uphill battle establishing authority over a crew of men. By the time she was almost 30, she thought she had things pretty much in control, including her steadfast single status.
She packed dozens of extra pounds on top of her bad attitude toward cocky cowboys to ensure that she'd neither tempt or be tempted. Everything was going along as planned until one stormy afternoon when strange and arrogant man happened upon her innocently skinny dipping in a secluded creek.
Dalton McBride was the most infuriating and cocky cowboy she'd met yet, especially when he finagled his way onto the payroll. It soon became all too apparent to Jessica that he was the most dangerous kind of man there was.
She wanted him as much as he wanted her.
When her lawyer confided that she might lose her beloved homestead if she doesn't come up with a groom pronto, Dalton let her know he was all too eager to offer his temporary services as a husband for hire.
Jessica accepted the business proposal but gave away much more than that. For the first time in her life she had fallen in love. She only had twelve months to call Dalton her man, and all she could hope was that by the year's end he'd love her far too much to leave.
Heartache, joy, heat and desire all await Jessica under unpredictable Texas skies.
In addition to being a full-time freelance writer, Ginger Voight is an optioned screenwriter who has completed eight feature length screenplays since 2002. She is also a prolific novelist with several Kindle edition books available through Amazon. Having grown up on Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger both reads and writes a variety of genres from kids books to horror. Romance, however, has a special place in her heart ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. Today Ginger writes romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman. Her "Real Woman Romance" series was created especially for those romantic heroines with fuller figures...who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can.
This story was very sweet, and flowed quite easily in my opinion. I love country romances, especially when there's a sexy bull rider involved! I absolutely love that Jess has fought her way through the ranks to stand on her own two feet as the boss lady, and it doesn't hurt that she's shaped like most of us really are!
There were some grammatical errors (such as commas and missing words), although they are easily fixable. At first I was able to identify with and feel for Jess, but sometimes she seemed like a stranger because her personality seemed to change.
Overall, I quite enjoyed this and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance or enjoys stories about strong women in general.
