Libby Remington was devastated when Tate betrayed her with a casual acquaintance and fathered twin daughters. Since that time she’s gamely soldiered on with her animal-rescue and coffee shop work while avoiding Tate as much as possible. But Tate’s marriage collapses soon after the girls are born, and now he’s running the ranch, trying to be a good parent and cope with his ex-wife’s outrageous demands and tantrums, while battling his never-forgotten feelings for Libby. Miller’s contemporary romance introduces a new branch of her enduringly popular McKettrick clan with the first in a series of three tales centered around hell-raising brothers Tate, Garrett, and Austin and their true loves, the three Remington sisters (Libby, Julie, and Paige). Expect high demand from loyal readers, although this tale is weak in terms of character development (the sisters seem more passive-aggressive than Miller’s usual take-charge protagonists), focus (subplots introduced to ramp up the emotional tension fade away unresolved), and real-life details. --Lynne Welch
