In THE RANCHERS SURRENDER (3), a feisty young woman abandoned as a small child and her two orphaned friends inherit a decrepit ranch in Idaho from a woman who believes one of them is her granddaughter. Can she trust the neighboring rancher who seems to offer both love and hope even though he wants the land for himself? Although the heroine is a bit too one-note in nature, Jill Shalvis creates a compelling romance between two emotionally damaged characters.
