Rancher Jesse Pleasant has a problem: his quick temper scared someone so badly they hurt themselves; now Miss Leona won’t talk to him, his family is disappointed, and he feels lost. Lily-Grace Leroux has had it with Jesse too. He was one of the few kids in school who didn’t tease her for her vitiligo, but she wants him to know he had no right to threaten her father. Lily-Grace stuns Jesse by verbally turning him inside-out and threatening violence if he comes near her father. To make it up to her, Jesse works on his temper, and Lily-Grace soon finds herself drawn to him. Jesse has been a fan favorite since Weatherspoon introduced him in the series’ first installment (A Cowboy to Remember), so this book will be in high demand from readers. Weatherspoon discusses Lily-Grace’s vitiligo and Jesse’s therapy sessions with subtlety and care and doesn’t give Jesse an easy out for his faults.
VERDICT If Weatherspoon isn’t already on autobuy, now’s the time.
