LARA CLAYTON KNEW WHAT BRANCH TAGGART WANTED.
Now that her father was dead, Branch probably thought the feud was ended. But he hadn't reckoned on one person. Lara was determined that he would not own her or the ranch.
It didn't help to know that the Taggarts had already charmed her mother and sister. Lara would not allow Branch's disturbing presence to sway her. For Lara Clayton, the feud is still on.
