Last Chance Cowboys: The Drifter
Caught between a greedy corporation and a desperate love of the land, Maria Porterfield barely has time to mourn her father's death. If her family is to survive, it'll be up to her to take charge-but she can't do it alone. When a mysterious drifter rides into town, the handsome cowboy seems like an answer to her prayers. But Chet isn't interested in settling down, no matter how tempting the offer...
Chet made his way West looking for a fresh start-the last thing he wants is to get involved in someone else's fight. But something about Maria awakens a powerful need to protect the fierce beauty at all costs. He never thought he'd find love, but as danger presses in, he may find there's more beyond the next horizon than just another long and dusty trail.
This was a great book. There was just enough suspense mixed into a romance that seemed real, to make it well balanced. I love that they didn't just instantly fall in love, that they worked their way up to that point after knowing each other for months, and the fight they had on their hands to save her ranch just brought them closer. Chet was an amazing hero, and Maria was definitely a challenge for him.
