Rancho los Alamitos, California historical

Maria de la Guerra isn’t sure what to believe about Rafe Jerry. All she is sure of is that what she has been told doesn’t fit with the man she has met. Maria is determined to find out just what the truth is because Rafe is turning into a man that is nothing like what she expected and with an attraction she isn’t sure she really wants she is going to have to figure out what to believe because it isn’t just herself that needs to believe in Rafe, it is also his half brother.

Rafe Jerry never fully recovered from discovering the woman he loved when he was nineteen in bed with another man, a man that was also his father. Then Rafe was kicked off the family ranch he never expected to be back again. Now his father is gone and Rafe is trying to find a way to get out of running the family ranch and raising his young half brother. Life has made Rafe a hard man and one to fear when he is crossed.

Rafe was betrayed during the war and he is determined to track down the man that betrayed Rafe and his friends and left them for dead. Knowing his enemy is in California makes going home a little easier for Rafe but that still doesn’t stop Rafe from trying to find a way out of his father’s will. He wants nothing to do with the ranch or the widow. He most certainly doesn’t want to give into his need for Maria, the first woman that has been able to touch his heart since he has left the family ranch but Rafe is learning that sometimes it doesn’t matter what the will wants it is the heart that wins.

This story has a little bit of everything in it with some mystery and action thrown in. The characters are well written and the reader will find themselves hoping things will work out for Rafe and Maria and that they can find their happy ever after. The story will keep the reader reading it as they see the characters go through a change of heart and find that sometimes the best thing to do is leave the past right where it belongs, in the past. This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone book too.

I give this one 4 red roses
