Navy SEAL Brian Lake is out of luck. Going rogue on his last mission landed him on a fast track out of the Navy—years too soon to have saved up enough money to buy the ranch he’s always wanted. Without a career—or the cash to start over—Brian’s options are few, until Army general Augustus Reed steps in with an intriguing new mission—a permanent one.
Ignored by her absentee father, duped by thief he appointed to oversee her family’s ranch, Cass Reed is done with men for good. From now on she’s determined to run Two Willows herself, so when her father sends a Navy SEAL to fix up her house, she vows to run him off her land as soon as possible. But Brian’s just as determined to stay, and he’s in a far different league than the men she’s met before.
Brian’s ready to do anything that will earn him a share of a prosperous ranch—even take a chance on marrying the General’s daughter. And he soon realizes it won’t be a hardship to marry Cass. She’s everything he’s ever dreamed of in a woman—and Two Willows is everything he wanted in a ranch.
But he’s not the only one who wants Two Willows—and Cass.
Will falling in love be the most dangerous mission of all?
Issued to the Bride One Navy SEAL
I love Cora Seton's books and was excited to start this new series. This is about 5 sisters who live on a ranch in Chance Creek, Montana. They are unmarried adults with their only parent being a general in the military who they rarely see since his work is very important to him. He also hasn't wanted to go back to the ranch after the death of his wife. So the girls are running it even with The General sending overseers - who the girls run off. Cass is the oldest and feels she has to look after everything - the other girls included.
The General doesn't think girls can run a ranch so he sends Brian Lake, a Navy SEAL, to marry Cass, then oversee the ranch. He's suppose to win her over while making repairs. She doesn't know he was sent to marry her, just that The General sent him and he's a good worker. Brian's not thrilled with being sent away but he's not given a choice and he has always wanted to own a ranch so if he has to leave the military, this is the place to go.
This book has a bit of a paranormal twist which is different from Ms. Seton's other books. One of the girls is able to feel what is happening. For example, she knows if someone is coming or can feel if there is danger.
I liked Brian. He was a nice man, hardworking and capable. Cass bothered me. She was too supersticious and thought she had to do everything her mother used to do. I didn't see what Brian liked about Cass so I didn't get how he loved her at first sight. While The General was great at his job he was a terrible parent.
As Cora Seton likes to do, she's set up a series where 5 sisters have to get married. Let's see how other other girls get hooked.
Please note I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
