Publisher's Summary

Marlene is one of the Red O'Connor's kids and she's got her dad's fiery temper. Itching for something bigger, she left the family ranch in Texas and hasn't been back for a while. Now, for the first time in months, she's back on vacation where she meets Curtis Copeland who is working as a ranch hand on Circle O. The last thing Marlene wants is any form of relationship; she has a full life already and it's not on the farm. Curtis has different ideas though; he's waited 10 years to finally have Marlene and fate or destiny has delivered her to him. Yet everything seems to be working against them. Marlene's family is dead set against the relationship and Curtis harbors a secret that can tear them apart. Whether they will be able to overcome the obstacles to be together is a question neither Marlene nor Curtis can answer.

Love the story!

Not quite a second chance romance, but a childhood crush that comes to life. This book was a joy and completely entertaining. Marlene goes home to her family ranch for vacation. She loves her family, but at times finds them completely overbearing. She meets Curtis, and they fall into an easy attraction. Curtis has secrets though, and is not ready to reveal them to Marlene. Of course, the over protective brother and father make life difficult for the ranch hand, but Curtis is a tough one. Along with the spunkiness of Marlene and the perseverance of Curtis, these two can make it through anything.

When Curtis comes clean with his secrets, there is some retribution that takes place, but the love between Marlene and Curtis grows. It is so sweet and loving, you can't help but fall for this couple!

Charles D Baker is the narrator. He is perfect for the contemporary western romance.

mending Fences Texas Heat. book 1

I have to admit this is the best book I've listened to from all the Amelia Rose books I have. the story is wonderful filled with love, and proving that love. This story was down right fun and at times funny to listen to.

Charles D Baker long ago became one of my favorite narrators. I love the way way he uses his voice to stress parts of the story, and softens his voice at the perfect time.

I look forward to more from author and narrator.
