Wolf Patterson and Sara Brandon are arch enemies from ages ago, but mischievous fate has brought the tall rancher with the pale blue eyes together with the dark-haired beauty - on neighboring Wyoming ranches. At first, sparks fly, but despite Wolf's misguided notions about the spirited Sara and her indignance over the assorted injustices he has thrown her way, a truce - of sorts - forms. Suddenly Sara notices Wolf's face, while not conventionally handsome, draws her like no other man has ever attracted her. And Wolf sees into the compassionate soul that Sara hides from the rest of the world.
But they are two passionate people with a talent for falling out...can love find the space to take root on the stunning Wyoming plains?

** I won a copy of this book in a giveaway on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review** It has just recently been released.
The story got off to a bad start from the very first page for me. It described Wolf with a big patch of hair poking out of his shirt. Apparently some woman find this attractive but I am just gagging while I even think about it...blaghhh! I decided it was not fair to judge a story based on this but I can not say that I visualized Wolf as an attractive man for the rest of the story.
This story is typical of what you would expect a romance novel to be. It followed the same formula...two people who hate each other who you just know will end up together. There are no surprises within the pages and no letdowns for those who frequently read this genre.
I did not really find any emotional connections to either of the characters. I found their back stories a little dramatic and the resulting scars made them too odd for my liking. It made the characters too damaged to be realistic.
That being said I was entertained throughout reading this. I knew how it would end but I was still along for the ride. If you can get past all of the characters that were randomly introduced then it is a good distraction from the daily grind.
