Blurb: New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers a brand new series set in Rogue Valley, Wyoming, home to the Stockton brothers, a clan of fiercely loyal and honorable men, and the women who touch the hearts of these rugged, loner cowboys.
The only reason rancher Chase Stockton and his brothers survived their brutal childhood was because they protected each other. Nothing will ever come between them…until a sudden tragedy calls in a life debt Chase can’t ignore, forcing him to make a choice that could destroy the very bonds that hold his family together.
Mira Cabot has never asked for help, but when a sexy, protective cowboy makes her an offer she can’t afford to refuse, she finds herself on her way to Wyoming to be the shotgun bride of a man she has every reason…and no reason…to trust.
The sizzling connection between Mira and Chase turns a rescue mission into something dangerously addictive, one that could either heal two broken hearts, or shatter them forever.

Ok the cover is a bit cheesy but I enjoyed this book. It came up in my feed for free and I love cowboys so I thought, “What the hay?” (see what I did there) Anyway, the story was good, but the beginning could have used some more background for my tastes.
I mean, it was a great gesture by Chase but his feelings came on a bit too strong for me. It was akin to insta-love. He met her once and offered to marry her in less than 24 hours? I could not suspend my believability for this part. Chase’s feelings warred with themselves. And I couldn’t see how a woman hater like him could just throw it all away for a person he didn’t know. I mean, sure he knew what his friend told him but it wasn’t enough for me.
Mira I had a much stronger connection with. But her feelings seemed to go in circles as well and it became a bit monotonous for me in the end. I actually skimmed the ending just so I could get to the good part. But the ending was soo worth it!
The big bad was so well written. I loved how he was so evil and I was scared for her. The ending really made this story, I just wish more would have happened in between the beginning and end. I t seemed a bunch of the same stuff kept happening and that what ultimately killed the love part of the story for me. Honestly the brother story was more to my taste.
So it seems its a bit of a toss up for me. I will probably read the next one because that brothers story is the one I want to know.
