Last Chance

The wilderness was supposed to be the start of her new life with her husband, Caleb. Yet fate and the wilderness have changed Laura Perkins. Now she is alone and must survive the land. Laura knows she can't be selfish and just think of herself for she has her sister as well. All she wanted was a family, children and love. She never expected though to end her mourning in being attracted to a newcomer like Chance. He is everything opposite of her late husband and this disturbs her. Every time she is near Chance she yearns for his touch. Her main goal is to be safe in the wilderness but also protect her sister from unwanted men. Yet even though she has things to do all she wants is to be naughty with Chance. Can she survive the wilderness and Chance at the same time?

Chance is determined to prove to his father that he can make it out in the west. His main goal is to make a living at his grandfather's ranch. He expected a lot of things in his new life but never a woman like Laura Perkins. Seeing her on first sight he knows she is the one for him. Yet she is mourning and he knows that with patience she could be his. However, sometimes a man with alcohol can do stupid things and now Chance must do everything he can to make amends. There is a lot of work for him but all he wants is Laura. Can he have Laura and make his ranch thrive with wealth?

This is the first title I've read by Sarita Leone and won't be the last. Here is an author who brings the storyline to life with characters that capture your attention. Laura is just like any widow but she misses the things only a man can bring to a woman. Now Chance is definitely a man who knows what he wants yet when it comes to Laura he is all tongue-tied. These two were great yet funny in their denials and attraction coming together. Last Chance is a story that will capture every reader's attention and have them rooting for Chance to get his woman. I loved it.

Book Blurb for Last Chance

Young widow Laura Perkins learned the hard way that life in the rugged frontier isn’t all sunshine and roses. She never planned to find herself alone in a land where gunshots and hangings are commonplace. But planned or not, that’s exactly what happens to her and, short of turning tail and fleeing, she’ll have to learn to live with her circumstances—one way or another.
When a handsome stranger saunters into Granite Creek, life takes a drastic turn. Laura and Chance are as different as night from day, but she still finds herself intrigued by the man.
And Chance? He’s as drawn to Laura as a moth to a flame. Too bad that moth has a trail of mystery—and murder—hot on his trail.
