Boss Lady Comes Home~ early Howard~ good~

PLOT: Cathryn comes home to inherit her ranch and Rule her former lover is now firmly the foreman and boss.

Rule Jackson is now the foreman and "official" Boss of the Ranch. He was the official "town bad boy" in his youth. Abused and neglected he was picked up from a ditch by Cathryn's father and he became a part of the family. The abuse shows in the form of a very SILENT restless adult. Cathryn and Rule became lovers when she was 17. Now years later Cathryn is returning to inherit her Ranch. She is "resents" Rule's hold on the ranch and HER. She also has do deal with her slutty step sister who wants Rule for her own. When Rule is injured his RECOVERY becomes mingled with her own ..... she slowly feels the Ranch is finally her "home." This is a very early Linda Howard. Still a good solid early romance. She has NOT added the "mystery" elements we have in her more current novels. I would label this one a CLASSIC early Howard ROMANCE. She was honing her craft and we still enjoy her early works. The reader is good and I give it 4 STARS~
