There are barely enough hours for divorced dad Tate McKettrick to run the Silver Spur ranch, do the suit-and-tie thing for his business and run herd on his beloved six-year-old twin daughters. But time stands still at the sight of Libby Remington. When they were high school sweethearts, the wealthy McKettrick couldn't convince Libby he loved her. But now they're both back in Blue River, Texas. And cattle rustlers, a manipulative ex-wife and a killer stallion can't keep him from trying again.
Libby has her hands full taking care of her mother—and running the Perk Up Coffee Shop. Caffeine, she needs. Tate McKettrick, with his blazing blue eyes and black hair? No. Oh, heck—yes. But can they really hope for a second chance?
I tend to like the high-school sweathearts give it another chance theme. And I was pretty excited about reading Linda Lael Miller again. It's been years since I've read a book by her, she used to be a must read years ago. I loved her historicals.
I liked Tate and Libby. They are both very good characters, but for the life of me I cannot understand their attraction. There was something missing, and I can't pinpoint it either. So reading this book involved more skimming than anything else. I guess overall it was ok. Just ok.
