Review: Fire & Ice by:Mary Connealy

Fire and Ice (Wild at Heart, #3)
About the Book:
Bailey Wilde is one of the best new ranchers in the West. She's been living disguised as a man for a while, but when Gage Coulter comes to drive her off her homestead, he quickly realizes he's dealing with a woman--a very tough, very intriguing woman at that.

Gage is an honest man, but he didn't make his fortune being weak. He won't break the law, but he'll push as hard as he can within it. Five thousand acres of his best range land is lost to him because Bailey's homestead is located right across the only suitable entrance to a canyon full of lush grass. Gage has to regain access to his land--and he's got to go through Bailey to do it.

Spending a winter alone has a way of making a person crave some human contact. In a moment of weakness, Bailey agrees to a wild plan Gage concocts. Can these two independent, life-toughened homesteaders loosen up enough to earn each other's respect--and maybe find love in
the process?

My Review:
Bailey Wilde doesn’t plan to ever marry or have the help of a man. Her plans only involve running her ranch by herself with absolutely no one bothering her. But with Gage Coulter as a neighbor, you are definitely going to be bothered. He breaks into her home hopping to disarm Bailey, who of which he believed to be a fiery young man, but oh did he found out that was totally wrong.  Bailey isn’t too happy for Gage to know of her being a woman, after all she work so hard to keep the whole town from knowing her true identity.  


After a long lonely winter, Bailey is surprised when she finds Gage on her doorstep. He is equally surprised to find her actually wearing a dress and having long hair like a normal girl. He spouts off and outrageous plan and after a few swings, Bailey believes he isn’t crazy after all.
When something bad happens, Bailey and Gage must work together to find the culprit. But no one knew finding the perpetrator would hit so close to home.

Fire & Ice is book three in the Wild at Heart series. If you have read any of Mary Connealy’s books, you know this author knows how to write. If not, you are missing out big time. You can have a gun fight at one moment and loving embrace in another. She knows how to keep you on our toes and on the edge of your seat. I loved this book so much I add the whole thing read in a matter of hours. I can’t wait till I get to read what she has next.

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