On the legendary ranch she can now call home, one woman searches for her place in her birth family—and finds so much more . . .
Now that she’s completed her engineering degree, Rachel Ford Morgan is trying to find her footing around her birth father and her four brothers. She gets a chance to prove herself when she discovers worrisome fault lines around an abandoned silver mine. But they’re nothing compared to the cowboy who seems determined to shake up her world . . .
Cauy Lymond doesn’t take kindly to the woman nosing around his property—especially since she’s a Morgan. He came home just to keep his father’s failing ranch out of their super-wealthy hands. But he soon realizes that Rachel’s skill—and admirable courage—may be the only things that can shore up the old mine that threatens both their futures. Still, it will take pouring all of their blood, sweat, and secrets into saving the land—and ultimately, themselves—to bring their true feelings for each other to the surface . . .

Cauy Lymond is set on carrying on his late father's feud with the Morgans, and he's furious when he spots Rachel checking out the mine. The two are soon sparring over who can be the most stubborn. But even as outdoor temperatures plunge, the heat between Rachel and Cauy rises. Pearce's fans and contemporary romance readers will want to pick this one up and read it to the end.

It was an okay story. It left some unanswered questions.
Great story, great series
Loved the story. Rachel and Cauy meet and slowly an attachment is formed between them, but along the way there are miscommunications and hurt feelings that almost destroy their budding relationship. Rachel is the youngest of the Morgan children and only now comes to find a family she never knew existed which is hard to accept at times. Cauy inherits his father’s ranch, much to his surprise because his father treated him badly growing up and at age sixteen he left home and made his own way. Rachel talks constantly and wears her emotions for all to see and Cauy is the exact opposite. He is soft spoken and a man of few words which at times is nit to his advantage. There is a happy ending but they both struggled to get there. The book is well written and at times highly emotional. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would highly recommend it as a great read. I hate to think this is the last book in this series.
