Library JournalFleeing the overzealous matchmaking machinations of her mother, Ainsley Fairfax swaps vacation plans with her sister Cecelia and heads to out West while Cecelia heads out to sea with Ainsley’s intended. In Wyoming, Ainsley finds herself part of a marketing trial on the Crescent Ridge Ranch where the Pommer family is offering several women the experience of working on a sheep ranch and a chance to be chosen by the eldest Pommer sibling, Riley, in a Bachelor-type dating game. While Riley is totally opposed to this ploy, he goes along to humor his sisters and brother. However, he doesn’t count on his immediate attraction upon meeting the reserved Ainsley. With the contest in full swing, rumors and cattiness abound among the women vying for Riley’s affections. When Ainsley’s mother and her “intended” show up at the ranch, Riley refuses to believe in Ainsley’s protestations of affection. Ainsley returns to Boston heartbroken but determined not to allow her mother to dictate her life now that she has had a taste of freedom—and Riley.
Verdict Riley is quite a catch, though he’s not sure he wants to be caught. Will his heart win out, and will he choose Ainsley even though he doesn’t trust her feelings for him? Can Ainsley make Riley listen? Find out in Sharpe’s charming Western tale.—Lisa Jordan, Johnson Cty. Lib., Gardner Neighborhood Lib., KS
