Kate Tenney flees the city that banned her latest dime novel to answer an ad to be a “heiress” to a large cattle ranch. She does not know the first thing about being a rancher, but she has nothing else to fall back on, as her writing career is going nowhere. She soon learns this is the hardest thing she has ever had to do, but she’s determined to succeed.
With the help of Luke Adams, she slowly begins to handle ranch life and her heart is starting to warm up to the possibility she will have the kind of love she has written about in her novels. She will need to keep her head focused in order to become the heiress. With Luke around this will be harder than writing one of her those novels. (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 352 pp., $15.99)
