Rusty Walker has spent her entire life trying to earn her tough, ranching father’s respect and approval by learning the business inside and out. But now her uncompromising parent has decreed she must marry if she wants to inherit. Worse, her husband has to be someone who can help her run the business. As if she needs it!
Williams Hill kissed Rusty in a bar in an act of temporary insanity, and lost his heart to her on the spot. Despite the complications to his own rodeo stock business, he agrees to marry the feisty red-head, hoping to woo her once they’re hitched. But she only views him with suspicion and resentment.
Can this soft-spoken Texas cowboy convince his proud wife, who’s never known unconditional love, that she is everything he wants?
After Saving the Sheriff I was very happy to see another book from Kadie Scott. We meet Rusty Walker, the tough chick, who can ride a horse like no other. However, her father is always talking her down and not taking her seriously. Since her brother died, the famous Walker empire will go to her, or so she assumes. But when her father drops a bomb, by telling her he is dying and she can only inherit the family empire if she is married to a man of his approval (and fast), she is determined to find her own way. So when Holly asks her to come help train rodeo riders on their farm she leaps at the chance.
What she didn’t realize, was that she would be working together with Williams Hill, the hot and yummie cowboy who tried to go out on a date with her. Determined to stay independent, she brushed him off, just like all the other cowboys. Because she is afraid, that one of these cowboys will turn out just like her cruel father, who only lives for the ranch.
But then Williams proposes to help her: marry him and inherit the ranch. Because Williams wants to build an allegiance with the Walker imperium, to increase his own business. So it will be a win-win situation. After the first weeks into marriage, however, both Rusty and Williams start realizing they are in over their heads. So… will the fake marriage last? Find out for yourself in this wonderful story of Kadie Scott. Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
