This book was recommended by the Excite Spice Daily Deals blog and this it was a winner. This is a true Western Romance with the rancher, Stetson, who doesn't pay a bit of attention to record keeping and is not good at expressing his feelings or 'sharing' problems...not even with his older brothers. Stetson's mom died when he was 12 and his dad never really was engaged in life after that. Stetson had to 'man up' at a young age as his older brothers were already out of the house. Stetson's dad died about a year back and he has been on his own with all the responsibility of the ranch and no one to share the burden. He hasn't had a relationship for almost three years since he was left at the altar.
Well....now Stetson is in a real bind. The balloon payment on the ranch was due in January and Stetson didn't pay it. He didn't notice it was due and he didn't have the money. He could sell his grain but his father planned on $9/barrel and he isn't settling for less than his father wanted. The bank manager sent out an auditor to review and recommend foreclosure. Jennifer's job is really to try to identify a way to keep the property in the family but that isn't at all what her micromanaging boss has in mind. Jennifer put her fiance through med school until she realized he was bringing home his nurses for bedroom gymnastics. She finished college and got a job at the bank.
When Stetson was notified that the bank representative was coming he started venting about what he was going to do to that guy......as Jennifer, not a guy, knocked on the door.
This is a very good story, in the tradition of the Western Romance complete with a problem, poor communications, mutual attraction and the push/pull of that relationship based on competing goals. There is passion, laughter, mud, lots of invoices and a fistfight...or two.
The main characters are likeable/loveable. I really liked Carmelita, the housekeeper/cook. She keeps Stetson in line and reminds him of his manners and "her rules". The main characters meet in the first chapter and throughout most of the book have competing needs and goals with early attraction and mutual tension. The conclusion is a bit of a surprise...
A good read!
ACCOUNTING FOR LOVE dates back to 2016 when Erin began her successful series the LONG VALLEY series – that series now comprises 6 novels! One of the reasons these stories are so popular is due to the fact that Erin is more interested in writing about romance rather that simply providing a setting for erotic. That is a refreshing change for chick lit devotees. Not that Erin refuses to spice p her characters and opportunities to introduce erotic: she just happens to make it seem a natural aspect of the relationships she builds.
Erin provides a fine synopsis for this first book of her series – ‘Is she the answer to his dreams … or the person who will be forced to destroy them? He’s a farmer, dammit, not a bookkeeper. When Stetson Miller inherits his father’s farm in Idaho, he’s too focused on crops and yields to pay attention to the financial side of things. The next thing he knows, he’s got a stack of unpaid bills, the bank is threatening to foreclose … and the auditor who’s come to examine his accounts is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on. But she’s a city girl, just like the last one who left him at the altar. He’ll guard his heart – but he can’t help wanting her. She’s checking him out … in more ways than one. Jennifer Kendall doesn’t mind a tough job, but the handsome Stetson is trouble of a different kind. When he isn’t making her mad, he’s filling her head with all sorts of forbidden fantasies. The sparks between them fly even faster when the road washes out and Jennifer has to spend the night on the farm. But passion alone won’t pay the bills. Can Jennifer find a way for Stetson to save his farm? And if she can’t, will he ever forgive her?’
Erin knows Idaho well – and uses that knowledge to imbue her novel with a fine realistic glow. For an opening book in a six books series this is very fine. Grady Harp, September 17
