    This is a fabulous family drama

    In Flagman's Folly, New Mexico Ronnie Ward dumps her daughter on her ex husband Sam Robertson and his mother Sharleen informing the latter she is starting over with a new man. He is stunned as he never knew he had a child. Still reeling Sam vows to be the best daddy in the world to four year old Becky.

    He learns his pride and joy is deaf, but he does not care one iota. However, his former sister-in-law Kayla Ward arrives from Illinois vowing to obtain custody of her niece from the absentee father. A sign language teacher, Kayla hates Sam based on what Ronnie told her about her abusive spouse. Sharleen gets hurt in a fall; Sam goes with her to the ER though he distrusts Kayla not to flee with her niece. However, thinking what is best for the child and realizing the aunt and father wants that too, Judge Lloyd Baylor orders the pair to provide a stable environment for Becky for six weeks of joint custody before returning to court.

    This is a fabulous family drama as the aunt and the dad fight for custody over his child who turns into the matchmaker. The characters are fully developed with flaws like obstinacy as each learns how irresponsible Ronnie is. Though the solution is obvious as this is a romance, fans will enjoy the trip getting their as a precocious little girl turns Flagman's Folly into the land of Enchantment.

    Fantastic Read

    Will the gift of a special needs child he didn't even know existed be the balm that heals this rancher's wounded pride? Sam Robertson has matured a lot since his misspent youth that resulted in a hasty marriage and an almost as equally quick divorce. It's been four years since his wife, with help of her sister, high-tailed off the ranch leaving him with a stack of credit card bills, mistrust for women and a whole lot of regret. He didn't realize what she took from him would be worth much more than he could know until Becky was "dumped" on his doorstep four years later.

    Imagine how difficult it had to be for Sam to suddenly learn that he has a child that he's never met and can't communicate with. Now, throw in the sister of his ex-wife who storms into his life demanding that he give up custody of the child he's just met. Kayla Ward honestly loves her niece and is determined to bring her back home to Chicago as soon as possible. What she knows about her ex-brother in law is influenced by she was told by her sister. Needless to say they each start off disliking and mistrusting one another. The only thing they have in common is Becky.

    Ms. Daille has penned a sweet story about learning to trust as well as learning that love is worth more than pride. Her characters are both determined and stubborn to a fault. They each want what is best for the child but are unwilling to consider that might mean giving her up. The author's writing evoked sympathetic as well as frustrated emotions for all the parties involved. Sam is happy, sad and scared all at the same time in regards to Becky. Similarly, his reaction to Kayla's presence is very convoluted. One minute he's trying to ignore her and the next minute he's teasing her into a kiss. They have some really sweet dialogue when they aren't arguing.

    Ms. Daille has a lovely voice for contemporary romance. Her characters are not perfect which makes them all the more realistic. Her plots are well built and the book transitions smoothly from beginning to end. If you are looking for a progressive romance that starts slow and ends sweetly you'll want to pick up a copy of A Rancher's Pride.
