With Danger Drawing Ever Closer, The Boden Clan Risk Losing Their Ranch Forever
Having returned home to the ranch, Cole Boden finds himself caught between missing his time back east and appreciating all that New Mexico Territory offers. Sure, he fights with his siblings now and then, but he does care for them. He enjoys his new job running the mine and, when he’s honest, he admits that Melanie Blake captures his interest in a way no other woman ever has.Melanie has been a friend to the Bodens forever. A cowgirl who is more comfortable with horses and lassoes than people, she never expected to find herself falling for someone, particularly for refined Cole Boden, a Harvard graduate who can’t seem to make up his mind about staying in New Mexico.
When a deadly explosion damages the CR Mining Company, the Bodens realize their troubles are not behind them as they thought. Shadowy forces are still working against them. Melanie is determined to help Cole and the family finally put an end to the danger that’s threatened all of them. But will putting herself in harm’s way be more dangerous than anyone expected?

This book was one of the best I have ever read from Mary Connealy. And that is high praise considering I like almost everything she has written! You can’t go wrong with this book.
This is the third book in the series The Cimarron Legacy. It would probably be helpful to read the first two books before this one just to get all the background (plus, they are good books as well and you want the whole story!)
Mary had just the right combination of suspense, humor, and romance to make this an excellent read. One of my favorite quotes from the book: “I will admit that when we’re alone, I have a few notions that’d cause your Uncle Walt to shoot me dead.” “I don’t think Uncle Walt would shoot you dead. He’d probably just wing you.”
I was entertained the whole way thorough, and quite literally did not want to put the book down.
Bethany House Publishers gave me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
