Overview

The Forked Lightning Ranch, near Callanton, Oregon

Summer Marsh wants to hang on to her family's cattle spread. It's the only life she knows…and it's her son's legacy.

Summer's ex-husband, Frank, sees the ranch as a cash cow—literally. With the collusion of his new girlfriend, he's trying to sell it to a developer at an inflated price. Summer has to come up with almost four million dollars in order to buy Frank out. Impossible! She might be land rich but she's cash poor.

Then there's Coltrane Quinn. He's a broken-down soldier and one-time horse breeder, and like Summer, he was betrayed by his ex. Now he's working for the conservation group Save Open Spaces. He's hoping to buy the Forked Lightning on behalf of SOS, which acquires failing ranches in order to preserve the land.

Colt's operating in secrecy, so things get complicated when he falls for Summer. They get even more complicated when she falls for him!

In Oregon, Summer Marsh¿s family has owned The Forked Lightning Ranch for four generations. However, her claim to the land of her ancestors is in jeopardy, as her former husband Frank wants to sell his half, obtained through the state¿s divorce laws, to a developer. To keep her ranch, the court ruled that Summer needs to pay Frank just under four million dollars within six months or he is free to sell to anyone. Summer worries about how she will obtain the cash that she does not have.

Former horse breeder veterinarian Coltrane Quinn knows the feeling of spousal betrayal too and supports Frank in the dispute. However, besides wifely mistrust, Coltrane has a hidden agenda to buy this ranch for his environmental group, Save Open Spaces. He reconsiders his position when Summer brings him an injured animal and even volunteers to use his military experience to save the offspring as he has fallen in love.

Though the lead characters are a delight and the support cast provides depth, Oregon owns WIDE OPEN SPACES as the story line paints a picturesque panorama. Summer is an ethical individual and Coltrane learns a lot about true values from her lifestyle. Though Frank is too villainous in a Machiavellian way, the state tourist bureau should give Ms. Denny a commission because a flood of visitors will trek the beautiful scenery as lovingly described by this author.
