Hayden Merrick had always loved living in Clarksport Maine. It was a fantasy of hers to live in the lighthouse cottage near her home and be the keeper of the light. Leaving Maine to visit her estranged grandmother made Hayden understandably nervous. However she never thought that going to South Dakota would feel like coming home.
Ben Winslow was a cowboy from the brim of his hat to the tips of his boots. He loved his guest ranch and the beautiful prairie land that surrounded it. Being with his horses, entertaining his guests, and running the ranch was his life. Upon the arrival of a friend’s granddaughter, Ben realized he just might have to broaden his horizons.
Hayden was pleasantly surprised at how well she was getting along with her grandmother. The community of Burton, South Dakota was a different story. They seemed to have some preconceived notion that she was there to cause trouble. When all she really wanted was some answers. However after meeting Ben, all she got was more questions. Her home was in Maine, but she was finding out that her heart might be in South Dakota. Would Ben be able to convince her that he could fulfill her fantasy right there on Forever Ranch? Or would the call of the ocean pull her away forever?
What a beautiful love story. Hayden is a strong and independent woman. She persevered against many odds to reconnect with her family. Ben is a real man inside and out. His support of Hayden’s decisions, even at the risk of losing her, is what makes him a truly wonderful person. Together they made a very dynamic couple. Thank you Ceri Hebert, this was a real joy to read.
