The Rancher’s Baby (Texas Cattleman’s Club: The Impostor)
When a torrid, possibly dangerous scandal comes to Royal, Texas, Selena Jacobs is nearly caught in the middle. Until her best friend Knox McCoy ensures her safety—by moving in! Selena has loved Knox for years, but she’s never had the courage to tell him. Now the sparks she’s tried to smother burn out of control…and leave her pregnant. But with the pain in his past, will Knox finally take a chance on love…with her?
Selena Jacobs can’t believe she is at her ex husband’s funeral. ow? To top it all off he left her everything he had. Wow! Right. But when unusual and suspicious things come to light, her best friend Knox thinks it could be dangerous. So what does he do? Moves in to protect her.
Problem one: She is in love with him. Problem two: She is a virgin. But now the sparks are flying and she can’t control herself. But Knox has so much pain inside and she does not know if he could ever love her in return.
So I loved the book. It was well written and a page turner. I was a tad bit disappointed that the situation with her ex husband Will was not explored more. I could see a lot of potential with that story line and felt it was a great starting point in the story, but needed more middle and end. You were really left wondering what was really behind that mystery.
The characters were wonderful. Knox has suffered so much loss in his life and the guilt of moving on is killing him. He is in a black hole. Selena is a sweet, strong independent woman, afraid of letting anything control her life, that includes falling in love. Her past has created the fear and instilled in her that she has to control everything.
This was a sappy romance. Yep I said sappy. It made me cry. It was a very emotional story. Full of trust issues, mystery and sexual tension. All the makings of a really good romance novel. I recommend this novel to all you sappy romance dreamers who love happy endings.
