The Heart Won’t Lie-Vicki Lewis Thompson

The Heart Won’t Lie

Vicki Lewis Thompson

Harlequin Blaze, Jul 23 2013, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373797639

Pure bred New Yorker Michael Hartford has three weeks to learn cowboy 101. Thus he heads to the Last Chance Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to ride a horse for the first time with only Jack Chance as his instructor knowing his guest is western writer Jim Ford about to show off his skills as part of a promotion of his next book.

Last year, socialite Keri Fitzpatrick fled Baltimore following a scandal. She since has become the housekeeper at the Last Chance Ranch. Keri and Michael are attracted to each other from the first time they see one another. They begin a tryst, but as each hides their secret identity from the other, both fears the truth will overwhelm their love.

The latest enjoyable Sons of Chance ranch romance (see I Cross My Heart) is a fresh entry due to the protagonists being city slickers struggling with life changing opportunities including a loving relationship. Throw in a Chance wedding and fans of the series will relish this engaging contemporary as “anything is possible” when love is the impetus.
