A New Beginning Was Her Only Wish…

His name is Chance McLain. Wildly good-looking, superbly confident, he’s everything Kate Rollins doesn’t want when she lands in Lost Peak, Montana.

She’s come to change her life, to heal her child, to find herself—not another man with a sexy smile and an empty heart. She has a son to raise, a business to run—and a murder to solve…

Kate may be determined to resist him, but Chance can’t ignore the desire he feels for her—or the suspicion that somebody wants her to leave Lost Peak. With the promise of a future together tangled up in the ghosts of her past, Kate and Chance must believe in each other before they can believe in love…

The Secret by Kat Martin
Love this book for not only it taking me to Montana, very detail descriptions of the land, animals and nature but a good story about fighting for what you believe in.
Kate Rollins, recently divorced had been shot. With her near death experience she moved her son and herself to a ranch in Montana, from the streets of LA where she was in charge of ads.
She now runs the cafe and has a house behind it on 80 acres of land. She never knew her real mother...
Chance McLain is a local rancher and half Indian and soon should be married to the neighbor's daughter, Rachel but he's seen Kate and likes what he sees.
A mystery surrounds her grandmothers death and by talking to other locals she finds some clues....
Mining company also wants to set up another mine where it would pollute more of the waterways and kill animals and ruin vegetation. The townsfolk meet to take action against it..
Things escalate slowly but you gain more facts and clues as time goes on.. Somebody doesn't want her there in Montana and she's been scurrying through the attic-all the old papers, deeds, etc...
Hot steamy sex scenes add to this story.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
