Overview

Far Hills Ranch has bound the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there's been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Colonel John Griffin Jr. is the best kind of military man. He's a good and honorable soldier who's determined to protect Ellyn Sinclair at all costs – especially from himself.

Once, he'd rejected a young Ellyn's advances, because he could not give her the life she deserved. Instead, Grif stood up as best man when Ellyn married his best friend. He became a member of the family, a safe friend to her, the godfather of her children.

But Ellyn is a widow now, back in Far Hills, Wyoming, living on his family's ranch there with her two young children, and struggling as a single parent to give her children what they need. No matter what it costs him, Grif will do his duty – help Ellyn and her children, while ignoring that he has never stopped wanting her.

The Army's sending him back to the western life he knew as a boy, the world of cowboys and cattle on Far Hills Ranch ... and back to the love he knew as a boy. But how can he even dream of second chances at love, when they should have no chance at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was great reading a booking with a good story line about family values. I am going to immediately start on the third book in the series.
