When he first came to the
ranch, it was with the intention of selling his half to his brother and then
returning to the big city. However, he fell for the Big Sky countryside, but it
is the encounter with his beautiful neighbor Ria that convinces him to remain
in Montana a little longer. With two houses on the ranch, Zane lives on one
half and Landry on the other. Except for his butler, Highbridge, and his herd
of two buffalo, Landry lives alone on his part of the ranch.
Widow Ria Manning has
always dreamed of having a family and a man who doesn’t wander. She had loved
her husband, but after he cheated on her that one time, she could not get back
the trust in her husband she once had. Since purchasing an obsolete flower farm
bordering Hangman’s Bend Ranch, Ria is just settling into country life when she
is stymied by a buffalo owned by her neighbor, Landry. The animal traps her in
her home and is trampling her flower bed. After having had problems with other
animals from the neighboring ranch, Ria has had her fill. However, it is the magnetic
man himself who may prove to be her biggest threat.
She and Landry arrived in
the area about the same time and from the beginning she saw him as stubborn and
full of himself. But after he dares her
on a date and she reluctantly accepts, she begins to see the good qualities in
him. Before long, she begins falling for him, but is he someone she can rely on
or will it become a repeat of her past?
Number one New York Times
and USA Today bestselling author Linda Lael Miller ends her PARABLE, MONTANA,
BIG SKY series with a bang in her latest delectable novel, BIG SKY SECRETS.
This sexy, contemporary western romance is sure to steal many hearts. Ria and
Landry are shooting sparks off each other before they even realize that they
are meant for each other. Especially endearing is Ria’s seventeen-year-old
niece, Quinn, who has run away from home. Quinn is the daughter of Ria’s
half-sister who makes no secret of her dislike for her sibling. But it is to
Ria that Quinn runs, and at times, their interaction will break your heart.
With vivid imagery,
loveable pets, vibrant characters, witty banter, family dynamics, one runaway
teenager, romance and true love, Ms. Miller brings the modern west to life.
Although this book finished up the series beautifully, I am sorry to see it
end. I guess I’ll just have to start from the beginning and read them all over
again. If you are looking for a charming story with loads of romance, humor,
family and a bit of spice, look no further than BIG SKY SECRETS or any of the
delicious books in this series. I highly recommend Ms. Miller’s PARABLE,
MONTANA, BIG SKY series!
