Linda Lael Miller, the queen of western romance, kicks off a fine trilogy about the newest generation of the McKettrick men. This one pits Cheyenne Bridges against Jesse McKettrick, "the original trust fund bad boy." Cheyenne, fiercely proud, grew up poor in Indian Rock, Arizona, and returns in her designer suit and heels to do the impossible: persuade Jesse McKettrick to sell a breathtakingly beautiful piece of land inherited from his ancestors (McKettrick's Choice) so it can be developed. Still, she is highly motivated -- not by her Trump-style boss (who's always saying things like "failure is not an option") but by medical expenses for her wheelchair-bound younger brother.
There are nice cat-and-mouse moments as Cheyenne tries to persuade Jesse to sell and he tries to persuade her to spend the night. Miller uses the game of poker throughout the book to good effect, but more important matters are at stake for Jesse and Cheyenne -- learning how to gamble on love. Ginger Curwen
