RANCHER AND PROTECTOR

Author(s): 
After her father's death, publicist Rosemary Wilson learns that the family ranch has been sold to architect Jason Barton -- and the down payment's gone. Rosemary persuades Jason to give her time to round up and sell her father's cattle to get the money, but there's a catch: He insists on joining the roundup. They encounter a number of snags on the trail -- including an attraction between them that threatens Jason's objectivity and Rosemary's peace of mind. Judy Christenberry's Rancher and Protector (2) is hindered by a potentially powerful conflict that never amounts to anything, and there's also precious little chemistry between Rosemary and Jason.
