Denied entrance into vet school because of her gender, fiery and determined Jillian Matthews trained at her father's side and then headed west to Montana Territory after answering an ad using only her father's initials and last name.  She is convinced that her skills will override local ranchers prejudice.  She's wrong and handsome Wade Parker, the one who hired her, is the first to make his displeasure public.  But Jillian refuses to back down and sets out to win Wade's approval.  Soon that's not all she hopes to win.

Widower Wade Parker is furious the new vet he helped hire is a woman.  The fact that she's beautiful, smart and wakes parts of him that he thought dead burns even more.  Feeling tricked, Wade is determined to send her back east but when the town turns on Jillian and her enemies become dangerous, he steps up to be her protector.  And that's not the only role Jillian has him contemplating.

Not what I expected

2.5 rating. A strange story. Definitely longer than it needed to be. Takes place in 1882. Jillian wanted to be a vet like her father. “A man’s job.” Moves west to to a small town in Montana. Needless to say, didn’t go over well. She falls in love with Wade, who has his own prejudices and she meets good friends. Basically it’s a story about women’s struggle for equality. The villain is out of left field. I was hoping it was her ex-fiancé. Would have been more exciting. HEA

Loved this book from the first page through to the last page! From the cowboy rancher to a young woman veterinarian, to narrow minded town of residents, all characters are made to be believable...which enriches the whole plot/story. Michelle is a new author/writer to me! I will be reading more of her books! If this review sounds like other great reviews, I am NOT trying to copy them. I truly love this book And like it that it was lengthy...to be able to smoothly tell the story the best!!!
