Dawn Comes Early (The Brides Of Last Chance Ranch #1)
This book give a very interesting start, i couldn't seem to put the book down. Kate answers an ad that is looking for an Heiress whom will inherit a ranch, but is not allowed to get married. When she first arrives there, she get caught up in the middle of a small problem (which is kind of funny). She gets to the ranch and the woman has her late ex husband in a casket in the room.
Kate has many problems while trying to learn the ways of the ranch, the men are having a problem trying to learn her the ropes and minding their manners around her (no swearing). She learns how to birth a cow while doing it with Ruckus, "one down and only fifty-five more calves to go" he said.
She finds out that she may love Luke and now faces a dilemma, to sign the papers to never get married or go to Luke.
I love how it ends. I can't wait to read the second book and about the heiress (though i won't tell you, if it is the same girl or a new one)
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
Disgraced dime novelist Kate Tenney fled the city that banned her latest novel for the emptiness of the desert. Answering an ad to be “heiress” to a vast cattle ranch in the Arizona Territory, Kate hopes ranching turns out to be as romantic as she portrayed it in her novels.
But what awaits her is a life harder than the one she just left. There is no room for mistakes on a working cattle ranch, and Kate is ill-prepared for her new life. She quickly learns that dawn comes early. But she is tenacious.
Having been abandoned by a string of men, Kate has no intention of ever marrying. But she didn’t expect to meet Luke Adams, either. Luke awakens feelings inside Kate she doesn’t recognize, and his steady presence is a constant distraction. She has only written about love in the past, never known it herself. But her feelings for Luke stand in the way of all she has to gain if she is chosen as the heir.
Perhaps God brought Kate to the barrenness of the desert to give new life to her jaded heart.
