Twenty-year-old Ryelee Snyder is pregnant and alone. Fortunately, she finds a job as a nanny to precocious four-year-old Rheenie Maloney. Life is perfect except for Horse Trainer, Clint Maloney. Ryelee feels his disapproval and is in constant fear of being fired.

Clint Maloney needs help with his daughter but he never bargained on Ryelee Snyder. The tall, gangly, girl is a menace. Clint spends too much of his time rescuing her from her latest mishap. Upon finding out about her pregnancy, Clint's feelings begin to change. He no longer views her as a nuisance but as a passionate woman with a generous heart.

Secrets, misunderstandings, and cattle rustling put an increasing strain on their relationship, until they finally turn from each other. Just as they seem to find their way back, Ryelee's part in the cattle rustling is unveiled. Ryelee fights unyieldingly to win the love of a lifetime.

I highly recommend these books of Kathleens as a Must read!”-- Lisa Tompkins - ***** STAR

“Kathleen Ball pulled at my heartstrings once again. In her typical way, this author crafted a story that touched every one of my emotions and pulled me so far into her story that I felt I was part of it.

My heart ached for pregnant Ryelee as she tried to move past her heartbreaking upbringing and make a life for herself. Her relationship with little Rheenie was heartwarming, and her love for Clint was tender. And though at times my stomach hurt for the way Ryelee was treated, I knew Ms. Ball would give us a romantic hero we could be proud of.

This reader has become a lifelong fan of Kathleen Ball and her wonderful stories, and I cannot wait for more.”-- ClassDreamer'84 - 5 Star

My 4 Star Review

The first two chapters had a feeling of animation to it and was difficult to read. But as I went along and read the interesting plot I looked past that and really enjoyed the story. Book 2 in the Dawson Ranch Series.
The characters Ryelee and Rheenie stood out the most with supporting characters Jimmy, Annie and Burke. I liked the originality of Ryelee's name, fit the character perfectly. Also liked the book cover it draws you in so that you want to read the story.
Truly dissapointed in Clint the cowboy in the story. The man was right in assessing himself; to use his own words "He does not understand women" and made poor choices in his believes and delivery of his love for Ryelee. At first I really liked him but as time went on it diminished and I truly thought he was lacking as man and husband. At times he just did not had the back bone for the hero in the story. He mainly stood out as father protecting his little girl the only true quality I liked, and his dedication to the horse program.
The plot was interesting as we learn about Ryelee and her past. and present problems. A father who had no problems selling her to get out of his own debt. Shoot the man is what I would do. Friends of the father who were only interested in one thing and did not care how they execute it to get their way.
At times sickening of the depth's humans can go to hurt a fellow human being.
But at the end Ryelee's strong spirit and willfulness to have a better life won her more than she could ever hoped for. Her loving care and warm heart touch you so that you really just want to give her a hug.
A good read to all who love a good Western Romance story.
