The Key to Annie's Heart - Fall River Ranch #1
Publisher: Ashlin Abbey Publishing
*This novel contains sexually explicit scenes. It is intended for mature readers.
To live a life in the Rocky Mountains had always been Mac's dream. He loved his ranch on Fall River and was a success by anyone's measure, except his own. He failed to keep his wife content to be at home, even though "home" was a dream put to architectural drawings and remained unfinished for many years.
Too many nights his wife preferred to stay in town with friends rather than make the trip up the mountain. She liked to party, and winding mountain roads coupled with too much to drink ended her life. He blamed himself for not being more dominant with her. That would have to change. He couldn't bury another wife because she ignored his wishes and put herself in danger.
In all his ways Mac was basic, even when it came to sex. He'd been a standard missionary position kind of guy with an occasional variation. That would have to change too! He wanted a wife and a family—a second chance at love and a steamier sex life-the latter being uncharted territory for him.
Annie Campbell was a busy event planner at a five star hotel in the city. While she considered herself fiercely independent, she was far from sexually savvy although she certainly was open to new experiences. It had been six lonely years since her husband died and time to move on, set her fears aside. Times had changed.
After reading what she considered to be a damn near perfect profile on a dating site, she sent Mac a note. Emails and chat sessions were followed by phone conversations, and finally Annie agreed to their first date. He had no idea just how independent she was. She had no idea how over-protective he was—but they were about to find out.
Can Mac pull it off? Can a country guy woo a city gal, stop researching how to please a woman, and put it into practice…and what about Annie? Can she surrender some of her independence and learn to submit to him? Follow their story as Mac discovers how to love a woman through the course of this series.
