Goodreads: After Phoebe Kitzke’s kind heart gets her suspended from her job in LA, she swears off doing favors—until her best friend begs for help on the family ranch in Fool’s Gold. Unfortunately, sexy cowboy Zane Nicholson isn’t exactly thrilled by the city girl’s arrival.
Thanks to his brother’s latest scheme, Zane has been roped into taking tourists on a cattle drive. What Phoebe knows about ranching wouldn’t fill his hat, but her laughter is so captivating that even his animals fall for her. One slip of his legendary control leads to a passionate kiss, but she’s exactly the kind of woman a single-minded loner needs to avoid.
In his arms, Phoebe discovers she’s a country girl at heart. Yet no matter how much the small town feels like home, she can’t stay unless Zane loves her, too…but is this cowboy interested in forever?
Ope’s Opinion: This is part of the Fool’s Gold series. If you like the other books in this series, you will like this one. It is similar to Susan Mallery’s other books in this series. I liked it, but I prefer Susan Mallery’s Blackberry Island series and her Mischief Bay book.
Zane and Pheobe are the main characters. It is fun to watch them find what they have in common and let each other into their lives. There are a host of other characters in this book that keep the story moving in interesting ways.
The next book in the series is Thrill Me.
Rating: 3 – i like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
