The New York Times–bestselling author presents a modern Western romance “as satisfying and comfy as well-worn boots” (Publishers Weekly).
He’s the prodigal son ready to claim his legacy . . .
He came home to sell his family’s failing ranch, but once twenty-year-old Bull Tyler sets foot on the Rimrock, he’s determined to tame the rugged land and make it his own. First he’ll have to take on the powerful Prescott clan, who’ll do anything to get their hands on the Tylers’ holding—even murder. Then Bull sets eyes on the breathtaking woman earmarked to be Ferg Prescott’s bride. Now nothing will stop Bull from taking the land—or the lady who stirs his blood like no other—and building a dynasty worthy of both . . .
She’s the pampered beauty he won’t let get away . . .
She was born to privilege, and raised to do the right thing. But Susan Rutledge has never felt anything like the fire she feels for Bull Tyler. Yet can she defy her father’s strong will and leave her secure life for a ramblin’ rodeo man? She’d have to be crazy—or crazy in love . . .
“Big, bold, and sexy . . .Janet Dailey at her best!” —Kat Martin on Texas True
“Plenty of intrigue, subplots, twists, and of course, love. Fans and newcomers alike will revel in this ride.” —Publishers Weekly on Texas Tall
Dailey's easy prose pairs perfectly with the low-key Texas town revisited in her fourth Tylers of Texas contemporary (after Texas Tall). With aspirations of being a rodeo star, 20-year-old Virgil "Bull" Tyler is breaking his neck riding the meanest bulls. He's barely scraping by when old friend Jasper Platt shows up to tell him that Bull's father has died, leaving everything to Bull. He knows that comprises a dilapidated house on a 2,000-acre scrub ranch called Rimrock. Even though he'd just as soon be as shut of that as he was of his father, an encounter with wealthy beauty Susan Rutledge makes him wonder what it might be like to marry and settle down there instead. Besides, he'd rather die than sell Rimrock to Ham Prescott, a vulturelike neighboring rancher who's hellbent on getting the ranch and Susan for his own by any means possible. If becoming a rodeo star was tough, the odds against saving Rimrock and marrying upper-class Susan are staggering. The ensuing plot, characters, and happy ending are as satisfying and comfy as well-worn boots.
