When fate hands Meg Cole her father’s wealth, estate, and career, she’s overwhelmed and uncertain how to proceed. A lack of enthusiasm for her inherited life leaves Meg panicked by her new responsibilities. She is trapped but determined to succeed despite her misgivings. Bo Porter has chosen exactly the life he wants for himself, and he knows his place in the world. He thought nothing could set him off course. But when Meg becomes owner of the horse farm Bo runs, neither of them can predict the impact of the other. Wade (My Stubborn Heart, 2012) does a wonderful job of creating relatable characters as she explores the forces that shape a life. From Meg’s privileged upbringing and dark past to Bo’s time as a marine and his passion for horses, the two must confront perceived expectations versus what their hearts desire. Ultimately, though, they know that trusting in God is the only way to live contentedly. --Carolyn Richard

When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his empire. The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's Thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo knows he ought to resent the woman who's determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them and earn her love.
Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their relationship--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

Loved the Texas setting. Good theme: rich girl meets cowboy. Especially liked the references to God and how he's always there for us.Published 3 days ago by safern

Easy to read romance. Could have done without the suspense since much of the story revolved around Meg and Bo. Looking forward to the rest of the series.Published 22 days ago by MEG

I really enjoyed the Christian aspect to this novel. I loved that the farm could be used to do God's will so perfectly. Some was a little far fetched, but still a very good read.Published 1 month ago by Deb
