Jake (do not call her Janelle) O'Keefe is the only female foreman in the Idaho Territory and the best at what she did. Currently, she is the foreman of the Bar EL. Jake has been working some ranch land of her own for the past three years. She calls it the Circle J and plans to start a horse breeding operation there. When Ezra's will states that Jake must remain as foreman to the Bar EL for another year, or not be given the clear title to the Circle J, she is livid. Worse, she is responsible for seeing that Ben lives up to his part of the will's conditions. She has no desire to teach the fancy lawyer how to rope or run the Bar EL. And she certainly does not want a greenhorn at her side during roundup. No matter how tempting she finds the man to be.
Ben knows that he can easily contest Ezra's will. None of the stipulations are allowable. But the locals respect a man who can work as hard as they do, and Ben definitely wants to make a good impression on the six-foot, red-headed, bar-brawling cowhand. That means resuming the ranch duties he had left behind thirteen years prior. Yet it soon becomes obvious that someone was working against him and Jake. Some of the shenanigans are more than irritating. They are dangerous. To add to Ben's problems, Patience and her brother, Reginald, arrives. Patience is determined to marry Ben immediately and then take him back to her daddy. But the way Patience is treating his family and friends has Ben seeing her in a different and unflattering light. Now the question becomes whether he wants to easy, rich lawyer life in Boston with Patience or the hard ranch life in Owyhee Country with his sassy foreman.
***** FIVE STARS! Jacquie Rogers writes some of the best Historical Romances on today's market. Not content to simply write a plot and toss in a lot of bed scenes and/or filler, this author adds in subplots, humor, action, suspense, and some endearing strays. The secondary characters come across as real people, instead of cardboard cut-outs, and have their own set of problems. It is nice to have a hero who cannot only do the hard, physical work required of him, but also be highly educated as well. Absolutely fantastic! *****

To Ben’s dismay, to meet the conditions of his father’s will he must learn the cattle business within a stipulated amount of time.
Jake (Janelle) O’Keefe, ranch foreman, has her heart set on a section of the ranch to call her own, a piece of land she’s worked for and that was promised to her by Ben’s father. But now she can’t have clear title unless Ben complies with his father’s demands, a demand that seems unlikely to happen. That city lawyer isn’t a likely candidate as a rancher.
It’s hard not to notice Jake’s ability as the ranch foreman. She can out-rope, out-ride and out-smart any man in the county. To top it off, she’s beautiful. But don’t tell her that. And don’t mention her big heart either. What she calls her “strays”–three little kids who needed a home–are dear to her heart and she’ll protect them with her life.
Ben’s tidy life in Boston has to take a back seat until he can meet his deceased father’s demands. It seems the old man insists on making his life miserable even from the grave. Ben’s life takes another step in the wrong direction when he learns his mother and sister have no intention of leaving ranch life.
Even “simple life” in the country can get complicated. When hearts get lassoed, there’s no predicting what will happen. Mix that confusion with an intriguing turn of events and you have a hot branding iron on your hands.
Much Ado about Mavericks by Jacquie Rogers is the third book in the Hearts of Owyhee series. The first two, Much Ado About Marshals and Much Ado About Madams are also stories about 1800's Idaho. Rogers’ solid understanding of the rollicking old west is apparent. She combines her extensive knowledge of ranch life in Much Ado About Mavericks with generous handfuls of humor and sexiness. A good, fun read.
