ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Miralee and her husband, Allen, live on 11 acres in Washington State. She loves to minister to women (as a certified Lay Counselor with the AACC) or through her writing, riding her horse, working in her flower beds and playing with her dogs—her 7 lb, long-haired Chihuahua, Lacey, spends a lot of time on her lap while Miralee is writing. Miralee speak at various women’s functions and has taught at writers’ conferences. She’s been writing since 2005, and her first book released in 2007. Since then, she’s had 10 more books release, both in women’s contemporary fiction and historical romance, and she’s had the honor of being a best-selling and award-winning author.



ABOUT THE BOOK

When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.

This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.

My Review:
 Leah Carlson may be a fiery redhead ,but she has a lot of weight on her shoulders. With her drunkard of a father rarely home and incoherent when he is, she must do what she can to protect the ranch. The ranch that she holds most dear. Steven Harding, a banker, finds himself in a bit of trouble when a mine collapses leaving him homeless. Asking Leah for a place to stay and in return becoming a part time ranch hand. This all leaves him sounding a bit desperate but that unfortunately wouldn't be too far from the truth.

 Leah needs all the help she can get right now. even if the help comes in the form of a very handsome by the name of Steven Harding. Asking her father to allow the extra help didn't go over so well though which leaves her feeling hopeless but determined. So the two of them set to work getting the ranch back on its feet but all of that doesn't seem to matter when an unexpected visitor arrives that could change everything.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from CFBA.
