Cowboys of Sunrise Ranch
This is the first of three books that focuses on the three McDermott brothers who were raised by their rancher father. Morgan is partners with his father in the ranch and is very upset when he learns his father hired his ex-fiancee, Jolie Sheridan, to be temporary teacher to their foster boys. There is a lot of tension between these two as the story begins. After all, she left him behind to be a professional kayaker six years ago. After a near-death experience, Jolie wants to go back to her roots.
The two learn that all the feelings are still there. Jolile is ready to welcome it, but Morgan fears she'll run again, or that he'll be holding her back from her dream.
Debra Clopton did an awesome job setting the scene for her new series. She described each brother and even several of the foster boys with clear personalities. I loved reading the story about how these two came together to love each other. I loved the side-story of the boys wanting to play matchmaker - totally cute!
