Welcome to Paradise Ranch
The Good Girl wants to spread her wings …
From birth Grace Crockett has been part of an unbroken set: one-in a million identical triplets. Twenty-six years later, however, feeling unappreciated in her role as part owner of a successful Denver restaurant, Grace longs to break away and fulfill her own dreams. But to do so she must learn to trust in her own judgment.
The Gambler wants what's owed to him …
Small-time poker player Ty Garraway is determined to break his family's legacy of abuse and abandonment, and give his young daughter a hope for the future he's never had. But that means taking on the Crocketts—one of the most powerful ranching families in Wyoming—and taking back a part of Paradise Ranch stolen from his family eighty years ago in a poker game he believes was rigged.
Can they bet it all … and defy the odds?
Grace's relentless honesty and devotion to family—not to mention the way she turns him on—has Ty thinking too much with his heart. Ty's passionate love for his daughter and his encouragement of Grace's half-baked ideas—not to mention his knee-weakening kisses—has Grace wondering if she's found her unlikely match in a rough-around-the-edges cowboy. But when Ty's plans are exposed, can Grace forgive the liar who manipulated her and her family and forgive herself for being duped?
Love has raised the stakes, requiring Ty to bet everything he has to win Grace and his future, but will it be enough?
A perfect Bet for a great read!
Ohhh my goodness. I have to say Lizbeth Selvig has been added to my "must read" list of authors! She writes such outstanding stories. BETTING ON PARADISE is book 4 in the Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys series. I have loved all the books in this series to date, each has something special about it recommend it. While this is book 4 in the series and I do recommend you read the previous titles(after-all they are great) you can read BETTING ON PARADISE as a stand alone story. There is a continuing story-line, the continuing care and growth of the ranch they all love, however each story has it's on HEA and story ARC that is easy to follow and doesn't leave you feeling lost or like you've missed something. For BETTING ON PARADISE we watch as one of the Crockett triplets, Grace, falls in love. Grace is the good girl something I loved, LOVED seeing and can so relate to. (I was and still am the Good Girl.) I loved that Grace stood behind her moral code and stood up for herself. Ty is a good guy at heart but has his faults, namely gambling. However he's willing to do anything to provide for his daughter, a wonderful character you can't help but fall in love with. I loved watching these two deal with each other and the rest of the Crockett family. You are quickly pulled into the story and the family while reading BETTING ON PARADISE. I loved everything about this one, from the setting to the characters to the story-line. I highly recommend BETTING ON PARADISE for all fans of great contemporary romances with wonderfully well written characters, an engaging story-line, a full cast of characters, a setting you'll adore and even better a story-line that is completely believable! This is another "keeper shelf" read! I can't wait to see what's next for these ladies and who gets their HEA in the next book. Be prepared once you read BETTING ON PARADISE you'll be eager to read all the other books!!!
Bet the Ranch
I loved reading Betting on Paradise by Lizbeth Selvig, the fourth book in her Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys series. It is a wonderful, sweet story that focuses on Grace Crockett, one of the triplets, and Ty Garraway a talented handyman. Grace is feeling out of sorts and tired of working with her sisters in Denver and wants to spread her own wings. She returns to the Crockett homestead, Paradise Ranch, in Wyoming to help her older sister Mia, pregnant and recovering from a broken foot. Ty was given his most important possession a few years prior, his daughter Teagan, when an old girlfriend dumps the child on him. Ty is in Wyoming trying to reclaim a family legacy lost in a card game many years ago. In the meantime he is working at Paradise Ranch and raising his daughter. The attraction that grows between Grace and Ty is amazing. I enjoyed the way Ty was there for Grace, supporting her ideas and adding in his own suggestions. The addition of his daughter adds an extra dimension to the story.
This story really resonated with me, exemplifying that sometimes a fresh start is a good thing. It can give you some new insight on life as well as yourself. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Selvig wove a wonderful tale highlighting the history of both families and their ties to Paradise Ranch. She also stressed the importance of family and the acceptance of each other. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
A good bet
Betting on Paradise, the latest Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys book by Lizbeth Selvig, was the perfect airplane read. It drew me so into the story I didn’t care that the flight was a little bumpy. Ty and Grace were fun characters and who couldn’t love Teagan? I loved the return visit to Paradise. There are two more triplets and I can’t wait to see what Selvig has in store for the other two musketeers. If those stories happen to take place in my hometown of Denver, so much the better.
