Overview

Gwen's got 10 days to raise twenty thousand dollars in cash. Can she rope a rancher in the ride?

From bestselling romantic comedy author Ginny Baird... "A cute, light read with quite a few touches of humor." - InD'Tale Magazine

North Carolina artist Gwendolyn Marsh is on a New Mexico mission. She's got ten days to raise twenty thousand dollars in cash. In financial straits herself and hoping to help her sister, Gwen's determined to bring monetary relief fast. What Gwen doesn't bank on is getting the utterly handsome and irresistible Dan Holbrook in the bargain. Still recovering from a failed first marriage, Gwen's not sure she'll ever love again. Can a midnight ride in the desert convince her to change her mind?

Billionaire bachelor Dan Holbrook is an outdoorsy man who knows how to behave in polite company. So when his sister Nancy asks him to run her Santa Fe gallery while she's away, Dan thinks he'll have no trouble manning the store. That is, until Ms. Gwendolyn Marsh blows into town like a wild, west wind, upending his world with her womanly ways. Dan's heart hasn't healed from its last disaster. Can he risk opening himself up to hurt a second time?

SANTA FE FORTUNE...
He moved nearer now, his mouth just inches away. "I'll be damned if I don't want to kiss you," he said, his voice a husky rasp.
And she'd be damned if she didn't want him to. "Dan..." she said, tilting up her chin and closing her eyes.
"But I won't," he said, snapping her back to attention, eyes open. "Not now. Not here. Not like this..."
She started to speak as he brought his fingers to her lips. "If ever I've seen a woman who deserves to be kissed well, it's you. But the timing has got to be right. You have to be sure." He cast a cursory glance at her wedding band and backed away. "I need to be sure. Something tells me we've both gone down a path neither of us wants to travel again..."

I have had the opportunity to read several books by Ginny Baird now. Santa Fe Fortune is another example of her awesome sweet romance stories. Ms. Baird has created a really sweet love at first sight story that I could not help but adore.  I will admit I don't usually judge a book by it's cover but when I seen the cover of this book it just looked like something I would enjoy. Oh my was I ever right.  Gwendolyn Marsh is on a mission to sell her work and to help her family. She is determined to make this trip a success. When she meets Dan Holbrook at the gallery, they form an instant bond. I really enjoyed watching these two get to know each other and fall in love. They have many things they must overcome, including living half a country apart, before they can be together.  I enjoyed the descriptions of the the places they visited. Ginny Baird did a great job describing some of the sights of New Mexico.  If you enjoy a sweet romantic story that leaves you with one of those "aww" feeling moments I think you will enjoy this book. I know I certainly did.  I see this is part of the Girls on the Go series so I'm really looking forward to see what other wonderful stories Ginny Baird will add to this series. I know I will be on the look out for them.  I was given the opportunity to read this book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts about Santa Fe Fortune with you.

This is a new author to me. I enjoyed this book and getting to know a new author. The two characters in the story are Gwen and Dan. Gwen is in financial trouble because her sister needs money desperately for her mortgage and Gwen needs money since her ex left her with a lot of debt. She goes to Santa Fe, NM to try to sell some paintings to an upscale are gallery there. She meets Dan who is just running the gallery for his sister who happens to be in France temporarily. There is an instant spark there. they go through many ups and downs but eventually things work out for them, including the fact that Dan is very rich and helps Gwen & family get out of debt. I also enjoyed the fact that the author does a great job of describing the landscape and scenery of Santa Fe, NM! I used to live in New Mexico. I visited Santa Fe on numerous occasions and loved the way the author painted a picture of the beauty of the area, plus all the historical spots in the area! I recommend this book!
