admit she made a mistake and leave her husband to the destiny planned for him? Well-written and held my interest start to finish.
The story starts with Cynthia determined to leave Nacogdoches and her father's arranged marriage. On her way out of town, her horse mis-steps and her carriage turns over. Enter Ricardo Romero. He comes to Cynthia's aid and keeps her safe. Cynthia is initially grateful for his help, but then she learns her father hired him to follow her. Ricardo brings Cynthia home and she resigns herself to her arranged marriage.
Cynthia's fiancé has doubts about the marriage and voices them to her father. Ricardo takes advantage of that and asks Cynthia to marry him at the spur of the moment. Cynthia says yes. She's attracted to Ricardo and while she doesn't know him, she's looking forward to getting to know him. Ricardo is more guarded in his thoughts, but he can't deny he's intrigued with her.
Ricardo takes Cynthia to his ranch house across the state. His parents are still married and run the ranch. While Ricardo's father seems to accept Cynthia, her mother-in-law, Felicitas, does not and makes life unpleasant for Cynthia. Cynthia takes matters into her own hands and moves out of the ranch house. She makes friends with the ranch wives. Ricardo is puzzled by her behavior. He doesn't realize how unfriendly his mother is towards Cynthia.
Ricardo takes Cynthia away on a romantic getaway and they make love, but when a former flame, Starr Hildago, interferes, can Ricardo and Cynthia nurture their newfound love?
The plot moves well and never drags. Yeary's writing style is easy to follow. I liked how she emerged the reader in the world of ranching and horse breeding. Cynthia is a likeable heroine, if anything I would have liked to have seen more introspection on Ricardo's part. I never did understand why he chose Cynthia over Starr since Starr seemed better suited to him.
Yeary's romantic scenes are well done. "All My Hopes and Dreams" is a nice escape for a rainy Saturday.
I have read several of this author’s books and have liked them and this one is no exception.
Cynthia Harrington, only child of widower and wealthy banker, is the consummate lady, but not without a willful spirit. In effort not to marry the husband of her father’s choice, she impulsively accepts proposal of mysterious and handsome Ricardo Romero.
All she has ever hoped and dreamed for was a home and family of her very own, but her new life in West Texas on her husband’s family’s vast horse ranch is anything but her own. Her new marriage remains on shaky ground, her role nothing like she anticipated. Little did she know how her arrival upset plans of Ricardo’s former flame and his mother.
I kept reading page after page. I loved attention given to historical details in this book, liked the characters of both Cynthia and Ricardo and all the unexpected twists of the plot. My reader’s credibility was stretch somewhat with how Ricardo’s mother treated Cynthia without Ricardo stepping in on her behalf, but the book is well with reading.
