|While out surveying the proposed site for the golf course she has designed, Landscape Artist Sophie Smith thought she'd be safe. Yet with little warning, she finds herself on the back of a horse after being swept up by a sexy cowboy out riding all so his sister can get some good action shots on her camera.
Jake Lodge and his tribe don't want the new golf course going ahead, and he will do everything in his power to stop Sophie even if that includes seducing her. However, he knows Sophie won't go down without a fight, especially when he learns her career is on the line.
This book was action-packed from the beginning with Jake sweeping Sophie off her feet and up onto his horse. It was what made the book exciting and kept me captivated until I was at the end. Not for one moment did I put the book down. The dialogue was well-written and I liked how Jake kept surprising Sophie, turning up whenever she didn't expect him to. The sex scenes were hot, though with as much tension between them as there was I thought they would have happened a lot sooner. But not to worry they were worth the wait because they revealed how good these two were for each other even though they were so different. Sophie the city girl, Jake the country boy -- what really did they have in common? Yet they gelled as if they were meant to be together. What I liked so much about Sophie was that she never gave up, even though every time she came upon someone opposing her golf course it seemed like a lost cause. While with Jake, I liked how he pursued Sophie because he could see there was something special in her that called to him. That she was someone he was meant to get to know.
Overall, Ms. Zanetti has done an extraordinary job of penning this tale and I can't wait to read more of this series in the future because the secondary characters – those of Jake's brothers and sister -- need stories of their own since they were such fascinating characters for the short time they were in this book.
