Her worst enemy…
Could bring her heart home
Heather Stanhope wants to despise the man who now owns the ranch her family lost. But Matt Burton is raising his late sister’s adorable twins, loves horses, and is known for his loyalty and honesty. Sneaking into Adelaide Creek for her friend’s wedding, Heather hopes to avoid Matt, but fate and family have them crossing paths. Heather knows falling for Matt means risking her heart, but it’s a risk she can’t resist.
I always enjoy Virginia McCullough’s books so when I heard that she was starting a new Harlequin Heartwarming series, I jumped at the chance to read it! Adelaide Creek is a charming community full of ranchers and farmers and just all-around good people. And despite the complicated history between Heather Stanhope and Matt Burton – namely, the fact that he’s the guy who bought the ranch that had been in her family for generations – the instant sparks between them are tangible. As a reader, that first dance they shared made me smile and I knew I would be solidly in their corner for this novel. Their romance is sweet (with some great kisses!), and I also appreciated that it was a mature relationship, not in terms of the characters’ ages but in the way they handled the obstacles on the way to happily-ever-after.
With a title like The Rancher’s Wyoming Twins and that adorable cover, you might expect there to be some cute twins in this story… and you would be correct! Matt has been raising his sister’s twins after her death, and he easily fits into that daddy-uncle role. And is quite swoony at it, as a matter of fact 🙂 I loved his interactions with the twins (and vice versa), and I also loved how they latched on to Heather – and how she seamlessly fit into their lives. There are a couple of sub-threads related to these cuties that give readers the opportunities to see further layers of both Matt and Heather’s characters, as well as adding an extra boost of heart to the story.
Bottom Line: The Rancher’s Wyoming Twins is another sweet & engaging read from Virginia McCullough. The writing voice is warm & relatable and draws you in to the heart of the story and its characters. You’ll be firmly invested in Matt & Heather and the twins – as well as the book’s supporting characters – from start to finish. A great choice for fans of Cari Lynn Webb, Carol Ross, or Ruth Logan Herne.
