Overview

Taking a teaching job in a desolate corner of Idaho was Kate Steele's way of making sure her in-laws didn't turn her son, Danny, into a shiftless bronc buster like his father. Except in the middle of nowhere she unexpectedly ran headlong into a genuine buckaroo….

Being a good parent and a born rancher were all that mattered to Ben Trueblood—until gutsy Kate came along. Suddenly he found himself explaining to Danny the rodeo circuit wasn't all that exciting…and considering the idea of hanging up his spurs. Anything was possible if it meant having Kate.

A high-concept romance, Ms. Fox joins together two complete opposites making this Harlequin Super Romance sizzle. Kate Steele has been crippled by love, literally and figuratively. Having come from a desolate marriage to a rodeo cowboy who chased woman as flagrantly as he chased a win, Kate was on the verge of ending a painful chapter in her life. Yet fate robs her of closure as a highway accident takes him from her and leaves her unable to walk. With the help of her son, Kate leaves the overbearing world of her in-laws and ventures into life, determined to make it on her own far away from the ways of reckless cowboys. Taking a teaching position in rural Idaho, she expects to find a hotbed of agricultural farming. Too late, she finds a small town lacking in single women and an abundance of men who call themselves buckaroos but embrace the tough existence of ranching she had hoped to leave behind. Still, one man stands out from the moment they meet and Ben Trueblood is more than he seems. He needs Kate as much as she needs him. Romance sparks between Ben and Kate with the air of inevitability born by a mature relationship. Each completes the other and heals the wounds left behind while forging a new existence where love finds a foothold to flourish. Ms. Fox creates a compelling story of hope and healing unlike any this reviewer has read before.

Worried about her ten year old son Danny ¿replacing¿ his late father Colton in the minds of his paternal grandparents, wheelchair bound Kate Steels accepts a teaching position in Owyhee, Idaho teaching 20 students ranging from first to eighth grade. When she tells her in-laws that she is taking a position in Idaho, Royce and Melanie Steele are outraged as they insist she is not ready for permanent work and their grandson needs them if he is going to be a rodeo star like his late father. Kate worries that the Steeles see Danny as a viable substitute for Colton.------------ Danny hates the move as his grandparents have spoiled him in their efforts to relive the glory of their late son especially at the Little Britches Rodeo competition. Meanwhile Idaho rancher Ben Trueblood considers quitting the rodeo circuit to work full time as a rancher and to be a full time dad to his adopted daughter Clover when he meets Kate and Danny. Though he doubts the Texan will survive the winter, he hopes she does because he is falling in love with her she feels the same way but Kate rejects the idea of a rodeo rancher husband as one was enough to last a lifetime and her in-laws still want him home.-------------- Readers will enjoy this entertaining ¿Home on the Ranch¿ contemporary romance as the lead couple fall in love, their children abetted by her in-laws have a different agenda. The story line is character driven by the six prime players, which leads to a richly fulfilling family drama as each is unique with varying needs. Though the wrap-up coda at a Texas airport restaurant after a late Amber Alert like suspense seems too nice, fans will appreciate Roz Denny Fox¿s deep tale.--------- Harriet Klausner
