The next installment in Connealy's Lassoed in Texas series is a delight. It's filled with joy, love, tenderness, a lot of laughter and characters who grow in their faith.
Readers will be happily reunited with some of the characters from Petticoat Ranch, the first book in the series.
Summary: In 1870 Texas, rancher Grant knows what it's like to be an orphan and have no one care about you. He takes in unwanted orphans and tries to give them a home where they will know love and kindness.
When schoolmarm Hannah accuses him of being a cruel ranch owner who only wants the children as laborers, Grant is speechless. He has to prove to Hannah he has only the children's best interests at heart.
This may prove harder than he thought, since he's attracted to Hannah in spite of her accusations. But Hannah doesn't want to listen to what Grant says. She still believes the children are in danger and she's the only person who can save them.
