When Christy Haley joined an archaeological dig in Arizona, her most fascinating find was an irascible yet irresistible ranch owner. The last thing Nate Lang thought he needed was an Eastern greenhorn who didn't know a cactus from a cornstalk. But she'd already unearthed his passion ...and discovered her rugged Westerner was a greenhorn himself--at love.
A typical old D. Palmer shortstory, nothing more.
FINAL DECISION: The typical experienced hero, virginal heroine story is elevated by revelations the defy expectations and a hero who at first appears to be heartless but ends up being incredibly sweet.
THE STORY: Christiana "Christy" Haley is a teacher from the east who joins an archeological excavation as part of her summer vacation and recent makeover. She meets ornery ranch owner Nate Long who is a westerner and who believes that the clumsy accidents that follow Christy are her way of trying to attract him. Christy is old fashioned and barely out of her shy, awkward stage. She finds she likes Nate but his misunderstandings about her push her too far too fast.
OPINION: This is a sweet gentle romance between two people that seem to be opposite. Christy is a woman who looks beautiful, but inside is shy and awkward. She is being noticed by men for the first time and doesn't quite know how to handle herself. Nate is a confident sexy cowboy and much more sophisticated that Christy -- or so she thinks. What is revealed through the story is that both Christy and Nate have mistaken impressions about one another.
This story is elevated by the fact that Nate recognizes his mistaken impression of Christy and is then conflicted because he likes this woman but doesn't want to be hurt by her -- or to hurt her. I felt that Nate is a sweet hero.
The end of the story (no spoilers) was simply adorable.
WORTH MENTIONING: As with many Palmer heroes, Nate mistakes Christy for an experienced woman and attempts to engage in a sexual relationship with her. Here, however, Nate is much more a gentleman that some Palmer heroes.
CONNECTED BOOKS: MiSS GREENHORN is a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
