Lucas Bad Boys of Dry River, Wyoming (Book 1)
by Susan Fisher-Davis
It’s true that romance isn’t one of my favorite genres, but as an eclectic reader, every now and then I like to read something different. This book clearly fit the bill.
Emily’s ex-husband Adam is being released from prison and she’s worried he’ll come looking for her. He’s psychotic and there’s no way he’s going to let her move on without him. Emily knows the only way to protect herself is to find a man to protect her. The problem is that everyone is afraid of Adam; nobody has the guts to stand up to him. She chooses a man named Lucas who’s known to be one of the local bad boys. She offers him half of her family’s ranch, Whispering Pines, if he’ll marry her. Lucas thinks Emily is beautiful and the ranch is enticing, but he isn’t sure if he’s making the right decision. Even though they’ve known each other since they were kids, should Lucas be settling down with a girl he doesn’t know very well, and so soon?
