This was my second book by Christi Williams and it definitely blew me away just as the first had done. There is so much between the main characters that it is hard to tell if they can overcome it!! You can read my review of Take a Chance on Love and trust me BOTH books are worth the time!!! As a side note….this cover is so perfect for this book! This is exactly how I would picture Noah and Perris!
She can survive anything except the men who love her. Perris Dalton doesn’t need a man. She left southwest Wyoming broken, so transformed by fighting cancer even her big hunk of a lawman couldn’t make love to her. Now she’s back.
Her new job is to mitigate conflicts with raptors at a power plant’s coal mine. There’s no reason for her path to cross her ex-husband’s. But when an environmental demonstration inexplicably centers in on her, Sheriff Noah Dalton steps in, confident he can win back the woman who once walked out on him.
As the demonstration spirals into personal attacks, Noah, Perris’s father the sheep rancher, and her brother the college student, hatch a secret plot to protect her.
In an epic contest of wills with a lone woman survivor used to solving her own problems, and three Western heroes just as determined to save her, all hell starts to break loose.
Christi has a way of dragging you right into the middle of a character and all their issues. Perris is a woman who had the love of her life, but then cancer stepped in. Unable to take the way her husband handles her after the cancer she leaves all of it behind. She builds a life for herself and learns to rely on NO ONE! She is a strong woman and she doesn’t need anyone to come in and save the day. The chip that has landed on her shoulder is huge, but when Noah decides to go after her, he refuses to let anything stand in the way. But can he get through that tough girl exterior? Can Perris let go enough to let Noah and her family help protect her? This book is MUST read!!!

I just loved this book. It was full of people wanting to do the right thing, but not quite sure what the right thing was….
When Chancie de Leur meets highway patrol trooper Micah Taylor one frosty Wyoming night, instant sexual heat kindles between them. Chancie’s a lonely young widow who owns her own business and Micah is divorced, so there shouldn’t be anything holding them back. But Micah wonders if Chancie’s obvious wealth might become an issue, or the fact that she’s apparently the second woman in his life who has zero interest in ever having his baby.
Micah has no idea of the real problem between him and Chancie, until he meets her son. Ten-year-old Jamie de Leur is determined to break up his mom and her lawman, and Micah questions whether any relationship with Chancie is worth dealing with the spoiled kid she’s raising.
In a showdown over Jamie breaking the law, Micah has to decide if he wants to be Chancie’s cop—or her family man.
This book dives right in from the very first page. Chancie is a whirlwind of activity and ruthless control over her business….mostly. She tends to charge first and ask questions later so the debt is piling up. One of the very best things about this book is that both Chancie and Micah recognize that they have an instant connection. But because Jamie (Chancie’s son) is so bitter and angry Micah is going to step down. He refuses to make her choose, or cause any extra tension and pressure on the relationship. He wants to back out now so it won’t be so hard later, but it is killing him to be apart from Chancie.
There is also the small issue that Chancie is not going to allow him out of her life completely! She refuses to let go of Micah. She is trying to find some balance between her son, her job, Micah, and herself……no problem, right? I guarantee you will love the adventure of finding out what happens in this book and I couldn’t believe the little twists and turns. At first I thought Micah’s attitude toward Jamie was harsh, but the more I read of the boy, the more I tended to agree.
By the end I was scrambling for tissue because you can’t help but get all choked up. You won’t regret checking out this book! Don’t wait any longer!!!
