Will Gold Valley’s most honorable cowboy finally claim the woman he’s always wanted?

For as long as brooding cowboy Ryder Daniels has known Sammy Marshall, she has been his sunshine. Her free spirit and bright smile saved him after the devastating loss of his parents and gave him the strength to care for his orphaned family. Only Ryder knows how vulnerable Sammy is, so he’s kept his attraction for his best friend under wraps for years. But what Sammy’s asking for now might be a step too far…

Something has been missing from Sammy’s life, and she thinks she knows what it is. Deciding she wants a baby is easy; realizing she wants her best friend to be the father is…complicated. Especially when a new heat between them sparks to life! When Sammy discovers she’s pregnant, Ryder makes it clear he wants it all. But having suffered the fallout of her parents’ disastrous relationship, Sammy is wary of letting Ryder too close. This cowboy will have to prove he’s proposing out of more than just honor…


Friends to lovers … and more! With book ten in her beloved Gold Valley series Maisey Yates delights her reader with the story we’ve all been waiting for. Ryder Daniels! He gave up his dreams and stepped up to take care of his siblings and friends when tragedy struck years ago and now it’s time for him to finally get his share of happiness. I enjoyed them getting together, but they felt a little flat in their emotions and dialogue and I found myself wanting a little more. I’m a big fan of the series, so I hope to see them again in the future.

Ryder Daniels has been a favorite character ever since the Daniels family stepped on the screen in this series and seeing him get to claim the woman he’s been in love with for years as his very own is really sweet. I always enjoy his connection with his family.

Sammy Marshall is sass all the way around and it was fulfilling to learn more of her past.

I recommend this book and the series as a whole to anyone who enjoys a close knit family always weighing in on each others lives as each member finds their own happily ever after.
