Laure Marie Altom’s is an amazing Harlequin American Romance author and I’ve read a couple of her books that made me want more. This book is part of Harlequin American Romance’s The State of Parenthood miniseries and it one on of the many books in the series that I’ve read an enjoyed. I have a weak spot for romance novels that have children in the plot because I’ve always found that they make the novels so fun and exciting to read. The heroine, Jess Cummings, is a widowed mother of two daughters and she owns a large ranch that caters to horses but she has been having trouble maintaining the ranch since her husbands death. When six feet of tall, lean cowboy rides up kicking just, Jess thinks a holiday miracle has arrived. Not only does he help with an injured colt, Gage Moore, the hero, hires on to work her ranch because her parents and the local vet doctor pay for his month salary already. The handsome, trustworthy Texan is everything Jess could want in an employee but is the ex-rodeo star too good to be true? That may be the case because Gage came to Oklahoma haunted by a saddle load of grief but he’ll help Jess get the ranch in shape by Christmas, then be on his way.

After all, the job was always meant to be temporary but how can he leave now that the hardworking single mom has given him a reason to stay? And if he does, can he be the husband and father Jess and her daughters need? That is what both Jess and Gage need to decide because it is something they both need to decide especially since the girls are coming to really love Gage even though her oldest daughter Lexie has been giving Gage trouble. Jess’s youngest Angela loves Gage from almost the begining but Lexie being the oldest and loving her father more doesn’t want Gage in her or her mother’s life and replacing her father. I really enjoyed the intraction between Jess and Gage because they have a chemistry very powerful from the very beginning but also the intraction between Gage and Lexie is also very fun and wonderful to read because they like one another deep down even though in the beginning they fight like cats and dogs. The ending was the best part because it left me content that they have a wonderful family that is now happy even though they had a few very rough patches on long the way. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
