When Lady Alexandra Calthorpe returns to the Loveland, Colorado, ranch owned by her father, the Duke, she has little idea of how the experience will alter her future. Headstrong and willful, Alex tries to overcome a disastrous marriage in England and be free of the strictures of Victorian society –and become independent of men. That is, until Jesse Makepeace saunters back into her life…
*
Hot-tempered and hot-blooded cowpuncher Jesse Makepeace can’t seem to accept that the child he once knew is now the ravishing yet determined woman before him. Fighting rustlers proves a whole lot easier than fighting Alex when he’s got to keep more than his temper under control.
*
Arguments abound as Alex pursues her career as an artist and Jesse faces the prejudice of the English social order. The question is, will Loveland live up to its name?
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“A masterpiece of western history, inserted within an adventurous love story that will surprise the reader at every turn.”
*
Though a romance in depth, Loveland is much more than a love story. Ranching in the 1880s is recreated here with an authenticity that plunks the reader down in that time. The characters are so real they leap off the page. The incidents portrayed by the author’s exceptional writing ring so true I was surprised to put down the book and find myself back in the 21st century.
*
I alternately laughed, gasped in wonder and cried with Alexandria and Jesse, two people no more suited for each other than what they are: a Lady from England and a “puncher” who is better suited to a horse than a drawing room. Downing deftly reveals their worlds, bits at a time until we are utterly intrigued and can’t wait to see what happens next.
*
For romance and western historical fans alike. Don’t miss this one”
