UNDER THE RANCHER'S PROTECTION

Someone is dead set on stopping Shelby Arroyo from doing her job: assessing mineral rights in a mine in gold country. But after rancher Barrett Thorn rescues her from an attack, the handsome widowed cowboy seems to feel responsible for her. That is, until he discovers she's from the family that he'll never forgive for his wife's death. As the threats against Shelby escalate, cowboy honor and an unexpected attraction keep Barrett by her side, even at his own risk. And since Shelby won't back down, Barrett must protect the brave, loyal woman he has no business falling for…a woman someone wants to kill by Christmas.

 

Danger, mystery and instant attraction! With the first book in a new series, Dana Mentink takes us straight into the heart of a ranching family destined to overcome their struggles and find their happily-ever-afters! The family foundation is well developed, and the plot of this first book is very intriguing. The falling for each other aspect happened super quick, but the story was well told, my interest was kept throughout, and I look forward to more to come in the series.

Rancher Barrett Thorn seems to be in the right place at the right time to help a woman in distress on more than one occasion these days! He can’t resist feeling attracted to the sassy and determined woman who isn’t going to let anyone stop her from doing her job … but when he find out who her family is, he might have to second think that considering he blames them for his wife’s death!

Shelby Arroyo arrived in gold country to do a survey on a mine, but someone seems to be determined to stop her from doing so. It all starts with someone attacking her from behind, but it doesn’t take long for a neighbor to be threatening her to her face. What is going on in this town? She’s determined to see it through to the end … even if it puts her in danger, but Barrett isn’t willing to watch anything happen to her, so he invites himself along for the ride!
