Rating: 5 of 5 Stars


Peyton Davis is part rancher, part federal prosecutor, and all Texan. Strong and steady, she’s known for keeping her cool in every situation, but when she meets the beautiful and accomplished heiress to the Gantry oil fortune, she falls fast and hard. When she learns her new assignment is to investigate the Gantry family’s business, her entire belief system will be tested.

Lily Gantry leads a privileged and protected life and she has no idea it’s all about to blow up in her face. What she does know is that the striking rancher she met at the Cattle Baron’s Ball has the potential to steal her heart. Will she feel the same way when she finds out Peyton Davis’s investigation threatens not only her family’s fortune, but the very foundation of her identity?

Ameliah’s View:

This is the Best book I’ve read in the last 5 days. I know that doesn’t seem so impressive but I’ve read 11 so….

Payton has returned to Texas to find the family and family ranch in chaos, her new job as a US ADA a trial and a new love interest the daughter of a suspected money launder. What a mess!
Lily is the daughter of an oil man. She has been away studying alternative energy sources. She arrives home to a mother who pressures her to fulfill her womanly duties and take up charity work, a father pushing her to sign a waiver before she accesses a trust fund she doesn’t even want and falling for a very confusing and complex US ADA.

Oh my gosh!! I’ve never read anything by Ms Taite before, what a fool I have been! This book is AMAZING!!! The setting, the scenery, the people, the plot, wow…. I loved Peyton’s tough on the outside, crime fighting, intensely protective of those who are hers, bad ass self.

Lily, oh Lily… So beautiful, So composed… Her whole world is crashing down around her and yet she stands so strong.

Their concern and chemistry for each other binds them when family and career threatens to tear them apart. There is a whole lot more in there too, SO GOOD! There were some questions left unanswered but I am REALLY hoping that is because they will be answered in a follow up book, Pretty Please……
