"Rogue's Son" by Darcy Flynn

Rogue's Son by Darcy Flynn is a clean romance. Kit Kendall, owner of Sage Brush - the once-thriving West Texas bed and breakfast ranch now struggles daily to keep her business afloat. Since McCabe Lodge reopened next door as a multi-million-dollar resort, she suffers one cancellation after another. Just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, Kit’s former neighbor - that she was in love with as a teenager - returns as the new owner of that resort. Sam Dawson has returned to Sugar Creek after six years with a secret. Under circumstances set by his father’s will, Sam doesn't have much time to convince Kit to sell him her ranch or reveal the truth about her father that will break her heart. 

Darcy Flynn did a smashing job with this romantic must read. Kit Kendall was such a vivid and real character it was impossible not to connect with her emotionally. Her tomboy ways were endearing. Her family pride and stubborn streak made me respect her. Sam Dawson was the definition of a cowboy. He added just the right amount of hunky spice to the story, and I have to add he was a gentleman to boot. I found him just dreamy. The plot was developed and delivered in a clear, concise manner. I enjoyed the way it played out. Even though I could guess how some characters were a little bit evil, there were still some surprises as to the depths of dirty they would stoop. Oh, those characters you can love to hate. I love them. I was very taken with Rogue's Son and look forward to reading more by this author.
