Allyse De Leon is a high powered executive at the top of her game, until one day, her hectic life catches up with her. She grudgingly agrees to get some medically ordered rest and relaxation. Leaving behind the comfort of glass, steel and concrete, she finds herself in the middle of nowhere, thrown together with a most unusual hostess—a woman who has her own way of doing things and has no respect for Allyse’s position.

Dani Saxon is used to being alone. Life’s lessons has taught her that it’s less complicated and a lot less painful that way. She loves her horses and her farm and making her own schedule. She doesn’t like getting up early and she sure doesn’t worry about deadlines or dealing with people unless she wants to.

When Allyse meets Dani, she’s intrigued with the quirky cowgirl. An attraction that flip-flops between frustration and desire. The woman is emotionally hard to peg and even more difficult to deal with at times. Dani isn’t the type of woman you can easily put in a box and label no matter how hard you try. She doesn’t understand why this woman is so important to her, but she’s willing to see where it all might go. There’s one problem. She only has thirty days. After that, Allyse has to go back to New York.

Will that be enough time to determine if Dani is “the one” or will Allyse leave her behind and go on with her life?

A lesbian romance you won’t soon forget and will want to read over and over again.

My View:


To say I enjoyed this story would be an understatement. It was a wonderfully written romance with a hero unlike any other I have met before.

Dani is a whiz with horses and her ranch, not so much with people. Allyse is under Drs orders to rest for at least a month or run the risk of harming her health. Can this work-a-holic actually manage to relax? Will Dani learn to relate to someone sharing her home? And where will the dog sleep?

I found Dani’s character refreshing and unique. I’ve never encountered a book with anyone like her before. She is unable to play games or lead someone on. What you see is what you get with her. This makes her both very complex and at the same time very easy to relate to. She is, to me, very endearing and enchanting. Allyse is also easy to love. She is very human and as such has her insecurities and doubts while remaining strong on the outside.

I loved that this book ended the way it did. It left room for the reader to continue the story for themselves but it did not leave you hanging. Another story very well done KL and Roxanne!! Thank you!!

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this story as well. I hope that a sequel will be written. I would love to see how the relationship evolves, especially once the children are around. I think Dani’s interaction with them should be very interesting.
