When Maverick Callahan and Bridget O’Malley first meet in Ireland, sparks fly. Assuming their time together is destined to be a one-night stand, Maverick returns to ranching life in Texas, while Bridget rushes to join her grandmother at church in Ireland. A year later, the two are shocked to discover each other at the home of Iris, Maverick’s grandmother. Bridget is now the guardian of her deceased best friend’s young daughter, while Maverick’s reputation at the honky-tonks precedes him. The two decide to put the past behind them, as Bridget needs her job keeping house for Iris, and Maverick is sure Bridget will be returning to Ireland with the baby. When Iris takes a fall and ends up in the hospital, she volunteers Bridget and Maverick to care for the ranch, which includes holiday preparations.
VERDICT For a relationship that starts with such passion, it fizzles as the pair are suddenly forced to form a family. The inclusion of familiar characters from previous books in the series, however, make this latest from Brown (Cowboy Rebel) a must-read for her fans. Includes a bonus novella by Sara Richardson.
