I want a Bo Porter. I don't care if I get Meg's money, but I want a Bo Porter of my own! WOW! (fanning self). It's not often that you read a Christian romance and get this kind of 'steam'. Not steam as in sex and inappropriate behavior (there's none of that), but in really understanding the underlying tension and attraction between two people and what's behind it. Not just, he's hot and she's perfect (although there is that), but it goes deeper and that makes the perfectness so much more bearable. :) The steaminess is from the emotional connection and the tension between them as they try to ignore what they feel.
Meg has serious trust issues with men and honest reasons to feel the way she does. Bo is the solid rock that is going to prove some men are worthy of trust. He has honor, patience, tenderness, sincerity - and the kick butt, protect you with his life nature of the military man that he is. Oh, and he has an intriguing tattoo on his upper arm that we just can't quite get a peak at... See what I mean? Hot.
The romance would have made this worth the read, but I really appreciated that Becky took it further than that and got under the surface of the issues and dealt with finding God's path for our lives. Trusting Him. Asking for the path He wants you to go and then listening earnestly and following those directions. Sounds so much easier than we make it most of the time.
This a book with humor and romance and a little sauciness that also makes you look deeper into your purpose and relationship with God. That is a fantastic read in my opinion.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted--more interested in art than in oil--she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father's empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo's determined to resent the woman who's decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them--her wealth, his unworthiness, her family's outrage--and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their love--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.
Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. Her first contemporary Christian romance, My Stubborn Heart, has been named a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. Her newest release, Undeniably Yours, is available now.
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
