Sinossi

Contemporary Western Romance Novel ... from USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa Mondello

What's a girl to do all alone with a rodeo cowboy for 1 month in the Wyoming wilderness?

Melanie Summers has something to prove! Being a zoologist is her dream and the only thing standing in the way of her going on an African expedition is her father and his fear.

So she strikes a deal. She has to spend a full month in the Wyoming wilderness and show her father she can handle being in a remote area while managing her Type 1 diabetes before he'll agree to fund the expedition to Africa and allow her to go. But her daddy isn't the only one convinced she'll fail...


But she's not about to let any man underestimate what she can do. Especially not the sexy rodeo cowboy she's hired to help get her through the month in the wilderness.

Yes, he knows what he's doing. But so does she! Yes, he's ruggedly handsome...well, he can't help that, can he? But no sexy cowboy is going to keep her down!

Stoney Buxton needs to raise cash fast to save the family ranch after a barn fire injured his father and left the family finances in ruin. Re-entering the rodeo circuit seems like the best way to get the money he needs. That is until Melanie Summers shows up at his ranch flashing easy money. To everyone else, Melanie's offer seems like the answer to all his prayers. But one look at her long legs and pouting lips and Stoney knows this high society gal is going to be nothing but trouble...for his cowboy heart.

Excerpt:

His jaw tightened. Yes, there was something definitely wrong here. And money had nothing to do with it. It had everything to do with this beauty standing in front of him, who was clueless about what she was getting her pretty little hide into. "No," he replied tersely.

"Mr. Buxton, I need your help."

"Tourist season is in full swing. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding someone else."

He turned his back to her and began walking along the fence toward the barn, almost forgetting... Abruptly, he glanced up and saw the charred remains of the barn. The place where all his troubles had started just one year ago. It hadn't taken but a second for him to hear her boots digging into the dusty gravel behind him, jarring him from his thoughts.

"Then I'll do it myself," she said to his back.

His whole body stiffened. He angled back to read her face, to see if she was just being a spoiled rotten rich kid, trying to get her way, or if she was actually serious. Seeing her head held high and her arms crossed in front of her, he realized she was dead serious.

And dead she'd be if she stepped one boot into those mountains alone.

"You'll do no such thing."

Frustration flaring, he lifted his dusty hat and forced his fingers through the thick crop of black hair before returning the hat to his head.

"You just don't get it, do you? You're not asking me to take you on a theme park ride where you'll get to see the wonders of the world at a nice safe distance. This is God's country. The creatures that live up there don't know civilization, and you are no better than them. You could--probably will--get killed if you go out there alone." His lips twitched, taking a good long appraising look at the woman in front of him. "You might even chip a nail on that pretty hand of yours."

The main female character in the story, Melanie, is not even a likable character. She constantly says how responsible she is, but instead she's irresponsible. She and the lead male character, Stoney, spend 4 days together barely talking, and then all of a sudden they're in love! She wants to go to Africa to study animals so she has to prove to her father that she can handle her diabetes, otherwise her father will cut funding for the trip. She's an adult, but she doesn't act like one. She takes off to prove she can stay a month in the wilderness without problems. Of course, she can't. Then she has to "face her father." Why doesn't she grow up and go out on her own? Right after meeting Stoney she tells him what he should do with his ranch! And she keeps pushing him to do what she thinks he should do even though it's not her place. Plus, apparently he was too dumb to think of that solution.

The misspellings, wrong words used, the wrong tense of a word and all the errors were very distracting and pulled me right out of the story each time I came to one. Some of the errors were: peace instead of piece, bottle lip instead of bottom lip, use to-the proper phrase is used to, weary instead of leery or wary, sentences like "When you let go of the strap go, your heel a nudge into your mounts ribs and...you're riding" and "The air around them broke into giddy excitement..". There were an enormous amount of errors like this-way too many.

The pat rescue and job offer were too much. The bits thrown in about using glycerin soap because it was gentle and not putting the tent on the actual grass were ridiculous. It just seemed thrown in the story and it served no purpose.

I can't recommend this because I felt like there were errors on about every other page. It made it too hard to get through. I did finish the book and I was so glad when I finally reached the end and could be done. This needs a major rewrite.

3.5-4 stars

This was a very pretty story. I liked Melanie and Stoney and enjoyed their story.

Melanie grew up rich but never wanted that life. She also was born diabetic and her parents treated her like she was fragile...keeping her in what amounted to a guided cage for her own good They tried forcing her in to the rich, privileged lifestyle (with charity functions, balls, coming out celebrations and all that crap) but Melanie hated it and decided (much to her parents displeasure) to get a degree in Zoology. Melanie wants to go on an African expedition that her father is funding but he won’t allow it unless she can spend a month in the wilderness somewhere in the US to prove she can handle herself and her diabetes outside of civilization.

Stoney is a good guy in a tough spot. He used to ride rodeo and help his parents run the ranch they own. Recently his dad was injured (and left stuck in a wheelchair) in a barn fire and it left them shorthanded and short on cash. Stoney works part time as a guide and knows the mountains well. When Stoney gets the chance at a month long trip he’s not sure if he should go because he’s needed at the ranch but the money would help…

Melanie is referred to Stoney as the best guide in the area. She’s also interested in him because he’s not a well known guide and her father, while he’d keep his word about the expedition, is likely to find any guide she’d hire and bribe them not to take her. Stoney behaves like a jerk to Melanie right off, first giving her a hard time about being a city girl that can’t handle herself and also saying he can’t leave the ranch. What he doesn't say is that from the moment Stoney met Melanie he was so attracted to her he just wanted to grab her and kiss her. The last thing he needs is to spend a month in the wilderness with her, alone. Melanie makes Stoney a really good offer though and Stoney's in too much need of the money to turn it down (because of ranch troubles and medical bills from his dad). He agrees to the deal but doesn't do it graciously. Soon after, Stoney and Meanie head out in to the wilderness and things are strained between them. Melanie works hard to pull her own weight (and does pretty well at it) but just about any time she tries to talk to Stoney he acts like a jerk towards her. She’s thinking he hates her, which sucks because she actually is very attracted to Stoney and thinks there’s more to him than meets the eye. After part of a week like this, Melaie finally blows up at Stoney when he’s being a particularly big pain. Melanie tells him off for the way he’s been treating her and the secret finally comes out...Stoney admits that he’s been acting like a jerk towards her because he wants her and can’t have her. Melanie is very attracted to Stoney and doesn't understand why they can’t be together but he’s determined that he can’t be what she needs and pushes her away. Oh, and up to this point, Melanie still hasn't told Stoney about her diabetes.

As Stoney and Melanie spend more time together, Stoney starts realizing his feelings for Melanie aren't just lust. He sees how special she I and it calls to him but he resists, thinking it’s for the best. Melanie isn't so willing to be pushed away, especially as she start to realize deeper feelings for Stoney. Melanie ends up pretty much jumping Stoney (not literally but close) and Stoney can't resist any more, ending them up in the sleeping bags together. The day after, both realize that they're in love with each other and to be honest...this part seemed a little off for me because they barely have gotten past their strained, barely talking to each other phase. But getting past that bit, the rest of the story continues pretty well. Melanie knows she needs to tell Stoney about her diabetes and plans to when they camp the next night but of course that's the time something goes wrong. Due to a spooked horse, Melanie's saddlebags with her diabetes supplies go missing. Melanie has to admit to Stoney about her diabetes and the danger she's now in. They head for the ranger's station as it's the closest help but it's tough going and Melanie has trouble as she gets sicker. Stoney ends up having to leave her behind and ride for help and things are strained as he finds help but it's a very close call. Unfortunately, Melanie only spent a week and a half out in the wilderness so her plans are blown. Stoney asks her to stay on the ranch as long as she wants but can't bring himself to tell her he loves her because he has nothing to offer her. Melanie stays for a bit but there's a conflict that comes up between Melanie and Stoney that causes her to leave the ranch and go back home to deal with her father and figure out her life. Things look rather sad at this point until Stoney reaches out to Melanie by making contact but then he doesn't follow through completely. Fortunately, Melanie takes up the slack and they end the story together and heading back to Wyoming for their HEA.

This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked both Melanie and Stoney as well as the secondary characters. The story wasn't perfect (there were a few inconsistencies) but I still found the story to be a good one and I liked how it worked out. I'd recommend it. :)

I love Lisa Mondello' s stories. They are simple and familiar but highly enjoyable. Her characters are always interesting and not what you'd expect. Take Melanie, the heroine in this book. Smothered and overprotected by her parents, she gives the appearance of a spoiled little rich girl. But as the hero, sexy cowboy, Stoney, and we find out, she is anything but that. She's determined to stand on her own two feet and prove to everyone, including herself, that she can do it. She figures a month in the wilderness will convince her bullheaded father. However, first she has to convince Stoney so he will be her guide. It's the last thing he wants to do but she makes him an offer he can't refuse, one that will go a long way towards saving his family's ranch. He proves to be as bullheaded as her father, but it isn't long before he's seeing her through different eyes and wondering how he will ever let her go when the time is up. Very good story. Look forward to reading more of Lisa's work.

I loved this book. I had a hard time putting it down, I didn't want to stop reading it. Nothing Bu Trouble book that you are going to want to read. It is a wonderful love story with a Handsome Cowboy and a Determined City Gal. I have also read the first 3 books in Texas Hearts series. They are wonderful love stories as well. Mitch's character shows up again in the second one. So if you liked him in this one you have got to read Texas Heart series, to me is a MUST!!!! All of the books that I have read from Lisa Mondello have been page turners and amazing love story with good meanings as well. Thanks Lisa Mondello for your amazing writings!
