About the Author

Emma Cane grew up reading, and soon discovered that she liked to write passionate stories of teenagers in space. Her love of “passionate stories” has never gone away, although today she concentrates on the heartwarming characters of Valentine, Colorado, a small town of her own creation nestled in the Rocky Mountains. Now that her three children are grown, Emma loves spending time crocheting and singing (although not necessarily at the same time), and hiking and snowshoeing alongside her husband, Jim, and two rambunctious dogs, Apollo and Uma. Emma also writes USA Today bestselling novels under the name Gayle Callen.

True Love at Silver Creek Ranch, the second installment in Emma Cane's Valentine Valley series, is a sweet romance with engaging and likeable characters. Strong family ties and a small town setting add to this delightful novel's appeal.

Brooke Thalberg lives and works on her family's ranch alongside her father and brothers. She is a strong woman, self-assured and comfortable being in charge. Brooke is beginning to feel like her life is missing something, but she cannot quite figure out what. That is until Adam Desantis comes back to town, shakes up her world and gives her life the purpose she has been looking for.

Adam Desantis's childhood was far from picture perfect. His parents were indifferent and neglectful and in his attempt to get their attention, he got mixed up with the wrong crowd. His brush with the law turns out to be a blessing in disguise when the football coach gives him a second chance. Following graduation, Adam joined the Marines and left the small town of Valentine Valley far behind. With his service now behind him, Adam returns to his hometown when he becomes concerned about his grandmother's health. His new job at the Silver Creek Ranch brings him a measure of peace as he comes to terms with both his unhappy childhood and the mental wounds from his recent tour in Afghanistan.

In the beginning, Brooke has a difficult time seeing Adam as the man he is today instead of the teenage boy she remembers. Unexpected insight from her mom and Brooke's day to day interactions with Adam give her a new perspective on his troubled past.

The relationship between Brooke and Adam is slow-growing and conflict free. As his boss, Brooke is reluctant to make their relationship public.

I understand why the people who gave this book 4 or 5 stars enjoyed it - it is hard to rate a book regarding soldiers low, however I have to be the first to take the leap! This book moves very slow and honestly alot of the dialogue and scenes between Adam and Brooke felt very forced. Even the first scene of the book where he goes in to rescue the horses from the fire feels like the author created the scene to force them into awkward interactions. For most of the book, Brooke was hung up on who Adam used to be in high school (which as Emma Cane described it, he was like EVERY other popular kid: arrogant, conceited, insecure, etc.). Not sure how this creates a "conflict" but it is a weak one at best. They didn't have many interactions in high school so why would she hold that against him 10+years later? Brooke needed to grow up...

...which leads me to my next point, Brooke is NOT likeable at all. I found her very bland and immature and just all of the place. She didn't know what she wanted and the way she handled the situation with Adam was annoying. She didn't do anything, in my opinion, to push Adam to tell her about his experiences overseas. She didn't even know how to handle it when he eventually did tell her. Their relationship seems very forced and the author did not do a good job of creating genuine interactions. It's hard for me to give such a poor review to this book when I loved the first one in the series but I'm just not seeing it.

Also, so many sub-plots in the book were never resolved (Brooke's mothers health, Adam and his grandmother regarding his time in the Marines, what Adam was doing with his life career-wise, etc.). The first novel had much more resolve. I could barely keep up with some of the sub-plots (like Emily from book one's interaction with her sister Steph).

Don't bother with this book it's not even good for light reading.

This is the second in a series of interconnected romances set in Valentine, Colorado. I did not read the first book and did not have any problem following the story or the characters.

This is a nice romance and I mean that in the best way. The romance is very sweet and mostly drama free, not a lot of tension, but a lot of warm feelings. If you like this type of story, you're going to want to continue reading about the nice folks in Valentine.

The heroine, Brooke, is a little too perfect. It would have been nice if she would have had some endearing flaw. But her flaw is that she is bossy, not so endearing. She was also very deliberately drawn as a strong, well-adjusted, independent woman. The hero, Adam, was of the wounded warrior type. But really, not too wounded. Being around the warm and wonderful people of Valentine fixed him right up. I need to find this place, they have donuts.

I couldn't read a steady diet of this, but it really makes a nice break from some of the darker stuff I've been reading.

I am reading the Valentine Valley series and love it. There are awesome characters and very nice, fun storylines. I started the series because I saw a comparison to Robyn Carr on line. Robyn is one of my favorite authors and this author has a nice way of telling a story too. I would recommend.

Marine Adam Desantis returns home with physical and emotional scars from Iraq. Rancher's daughter Brooke Thalberg finds him much different, improved, from their school days. Adam's grandmother is pretending to be more feeble than she actually is to keep him home in Valentine Valley. The characters, dialogue and story line are believable. Small town life weaves color along with the romance of Adam and Brooke.

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more from this author.
