Brenna Jamison doesn’t want a husband. She may be widowed and pregnant, but she doesn’t need a man in her life–particularly not strong-willed, close-mouthed, drop-dead gorgeous Jed McCall.
Jed doesn’t want a wife. He’s raising his nephew, Tuck, just fine by himself, thank you very much. And when beautiful, tempting Brenna comes back to take over her father’s ranch, Jed wants nothing more than to keep her out of his life.
Tuck has a better idea… But he doesn’t know about the past they share–one that Jed doesn’t want to remember and Brenna can’t forget. When life throws them together again, Brenna discovers that Jed matters more than she wishes he would. And try as he will, Jed can’t get Brenna out of his mind.
Yes, they have a past. But the question now is: can they have a future?
A Cowboy’s stubborn pride can be very frustrating. I loved the storyline but was very frustrated with Jed. I wanted to shake some sense into him. I couldn’t put the book down until I knew what was going to happen next. Anne McAllister has a way of keeping you guessing “what’s next”.
Wow, not sure it was cowboy pride or foolish man behavior on Jeb’s part. So hard headed! Thank goodness for Brenna’s patience and her willingness to see it through. Nice HEA!
I really enjoyed this story. Jed and Brenna had been sweethearts 11 years ago, until Jed just left her with no explanation. Now Brenna is back a pregnant widow trying to help her father's ranch while he recovers from a stroke. Jed is fighting to retain custody of his nephew, and although he is a very good and caring person, he's not the most conventional parent.
The solution to both of their problems - a marriage of convenience.
I loved Jed, Brenna, Tucker, and Otis (Brenna's dad). They were all very real and likable characters. The storyline was great as well.
