THE RANCHER NEXT DOOR
Rebecca Carrigan runs into tough but handsome rancher Trevor McCabe when she purchases a ranch to raise alpacas. Trevor riles her at every turn, yet she can't seem to ignore him. Trevor wants Rebecca's land, but more than that he wants to protect her from another rancher, Vince, who's up to no good. Can he convince this strong-willed woman that she can have her independence and his heart without losing herself? The Rancher Next Door, by Cathy Gillen Thacker (3), is a sweet novel once you get past Rebecca's stubborn nature. Trevor is a good hero and balances Rebecca nicely. Secondary characters add flavor and depth.
