Release Date: March 30, 2015
Lacy Denvers has lost her job, and lost her way. All she wants to do now is get her career back on track and find some stability again, but first, she wants to mark something off her bucket list: She wants to learn to ride a horse. Her dream vacation to the Crawley Creek Cattle Ranch turns into a lesson in patience when the North Dakota winter proves unpredictable as ever. Wrapped in a cocoon of snow, Lacy finds the ranch to be a hidden treasure trove of cowboy eye candy, and her mouth is watering even as her brain is telling her to run.
After a devastating tragedy, a young Drannon Russo ended up fostering with the Crawley family, and found a home. He’s only moved away once and had to lean on family for support when his dreams were shattered. Being a cowboy on a ranch is a pretty lonely existence. When a beautiful redhead shows up looking for a fresh start he’s determined to give them both what they want.
Will this vacation into the heart of cattle country turn out to be a mistake, or will Lacy and Drannon find their future in each other?
Cowboys. You can't go wrong with a good cowboy story in my opinion, and that's exactly what Forget Me Knot was... A good, fun and VERY sexy cowboy story.
Lacy Denvers is determined to learn how to ride a horse. After losing her job, she heads up to North Dakota and, at the Crawley Creek Ranch in the dead of Winter, she plans to do just that.
Dannon Russo found family at Crawley Creek. After losing his Mom, and being taken in by Abe and Sera Crawley, he found a new life and new hope at the ranch. When his plans for a new life away from the ranch failed, he headed back to the only place he's ever been at peace and at home.
When Lacy and Dannon meet, their chemistry is undeniable, but how can they make it work when he can't leave and she can't stay?
Well, hell. I didn't expect this story to be quite that hot. But it was...oh, it was. And that, along with Dannon's charming-but-a-little-messed-up brothers, is what made is book so good. Forget Me Knot ended sooner than I would have expected... I think I was looking at the percentage read and expecting more time for them, more conflict, more drama, but regardless, I found the connection between Lacy and Dannon to be solid. And although their love was a little too much, too soon for my typical tastes, I can't deny it worked here.
What also worked was the dynamic between Dannon and his foster brothers. I loved this part of the story -- that these boys were made a family by a giving, loving and strong couple, and that they stuck together after all these years. As an opener for a new series,Forget Me Knot provided some charming and intriguing characters upon which to build a foundation and I can't wait to see what comes next.
~ Review by Beth
Best-selling author, Lori King, is also a full-time wife and mother of three boys. Although she rarely has time to just enjoy feminine pursuits; at heart she is a hopeless romantic. She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online. She gives her parents all the credit for her unique sense of humor and acceptance of all forms of love. There are no two loves alike, but you can love more than one with your whole heart.
With the motto: Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance, she will continue to write as long as you continue to read. Thank you for taking the time to indulge in a good Happily Ever After with her.
