Last Chance Ranch

GIVEAWAY

NIGHT, JENNA
LAST CHANCE RANCH

Her cowboy hero...

After crossing a mob lawyer, Olivia Dillon knows she has to run for her life. But on the way to her great-aunt's remote Arizona ranch, she's forced off the road. The message is clear. She can run, she can hide...but she'll never be safe again. So with Elijah Morales -- the rancher next door -- by her side, she's determined to face the danger head on. The former Army Ranger and natural-born protector promises to end the attacks against her. Even if helping her puts him directly in harm's way. Staying means risking his life, but can Olivia leave to confront her enemies -- and the future -- without Elijah?

My Review:

"Natural-born protector"....blissful sigh. Uh-huh, that pretty much sums Elijah up and makes this alpha-hero lover very happy. But poor Elijah is a little out of his element with this cranky heroine (and for the record, she has a lot to be cranky about.) I just have to quote this part because it's so funny and true and exactly what their romance is all about. "Why did she do that? Elijah was good at reading the signs on a battlefield or behind enemy lines. He was good with horses and cattle, and was decent at weather prediction. He was a pretty good tracker, too. But he couldn't read women to save his life." (p 89) I'll give him a bit of a break though, since he is so busy trying to keep Olivia safe. That's a full-time job right there. Great suspense, that breathes enough to allow a relationship to grow. There's lots of surprises in this story too -- from Elijah's unique church group to plot twists that keep the mystery fresh. Read Last Chance Ranch in one sitting -- partly because it's so page-turningly good and partly because I was avoiding the spring blizzard battering against my creaky old house. Great distraction on both counts.
