In Book 1 of the Heart of the Rockies series, Richardson piques my interest with her great writing, her quirky characters, and her overriding belief that love truly is enough. I also love the sociopolitical issues woven into the story...and the lives. GREAT JOB!

Avery King needs to leave Chicago before she is run out of town by angry Chicago Cubs fans. She turns down a marriage proposal from one of the city’s favorite pitchers during the seventh inning stretch. She humiliated him in front of thousands, and to make it even worse, the Cubs lost the game. So when the opportunity arises to travel to Colorado to purchase a rundown ranch for her father, she is more than ready to leave. Avery is very good at her job and she knows she will have no problem negotiating the deal. Her father wants the land so that he can build a luxury resort in honor of her mother. So failure is not an option for Avery, she will close the deal.
Bryce Walker has had a rough time the last few years. He has lost his wife (who was his childhood sweetheart), he has become an alcoholic and he is about to lose the family ranch. Things could not look much darker for him. But he is determined to turn his life around and beat his demons. He has to save the ranch that his grandparents built with their own hands and failure is not an option for him, either.
When Avery shows up at his ranch and makes him a lucrative offer to buy the ranch, he refuses to sell. He vows to find another way to return the ranch to it’s former glory without selling out. Avery is just as determined to do her job and buy the ranch. When the two meet, tempers flare and anger erupts. But something else flares between the two, attraction. Both recognize it and both are determined to ignore it. But sometimes fate has other ideas.
I absolutely love both Avery and Bryce. Avery is a combination of beauty, brains, loyalty and vulnerability.Read more ›
Bryce Walker is about to lose his family’s land, a ranch that is in debt and really bad shape after being neglected for years. He’s finally ready to take over the family legacy when he finds out that investors are waiting for him to forfeit the land due to financial issues.
Avery King has been sent to the ranch by her father to make a deal for the land. But when she arrives, Bryce is not entertaining offers and he’s rather rude while telling her so. Not wanting to go back to father empty handed and wanting a “win” after a public humiliation she suffered at the hands of her ex, Avery does not take no for an answer. She starts digging around to find out Bryce’s connection to the land and the more she finds out, the more she likes both the ranch and Bryce.
Of course she and Bryce begin spending more time together and they begin to fall for each other. It happens rather quickly but then they can’t get out of their own way to really make the relationship lasting. The two main characters have good chemistry together and are fun characters in their own rights. Bryce has some layers to him and they have to be unraveled before you get to see the connections he has with his friends and the community and the ranch. He has gained the loyalty of the people around him and is loyal to them in return. But he’s got some baggage from his past that still needs to be unpacked before he is really ready to be happy.Read more ›
