This was an enjoyable read. Romance & emotionality were dynamic & made this a fast read. Sexual chemistry & sex scenes were passionate. I liked both Hero & heroine although Hero was sometimes a little too domineering. They both were victims of deception by heroine's family in the past in order to keep them apart. They both carried hurt b/c of it & it still affected their current r/s even when they both faced the truth of what happened in the past. They both resisted giving in to their affection for each other & it made for an exciting read. The resolution hinged on heroine's faith with Hero. It made sense but I thought Hero should've done some groveling due to having deceived & outright lie to heroine about his involvement re: her ranch.
