Elizabeth fell in love with Jeff when she was just a young girl. Although he was a bit older, that did not matter, but he only thought of her as a sister. Unfortunately, she was sent away to boarding school to learn to be a lady rather than a tomboy.
Growing up, Jeff treated Elizabeth as a younger sister. But she is now grown up and sporting some womanly curves that do unspeakable things to Jeff’s libido. Not to mention the jealousy he feels when she brings an easterner named Gregory Webster home with her.
Jeff and Elizabeth clash at every turn, butting heads over everything; yet they both feel a fire building within them as well. Rustlers are invading many farms in the area and hurting them. Elizabeth thinks that marriage to Gregory might save them, but is it a huge mistake if her heart belongs to Jeff?
This is a sweet and tender story that has a lot of exciting elements to keep the reader turning the pages. About halfway through, when a tragedy occurs, I broke out in tears thinking of my own father who died a few years back. But I soon rallied back to smiles when the storyline again changed. A read by Sandy Sullivan comes highly recommended from this reviewer.
