When Jack Mercy died, he left behind a lot of enemies...and a ranch worth nearly $20 million. Now his three daughters - each born of a different marriage, and each unknown to the others - have gathered to hear the reading of the will.
Willa, the only one who knew her father, boldly expects that everything will be hers. Tess, who has reluctantly flown in from Hollywood, just hopes to fly back with as much cash as possible - and as soon as possible. And Lily Mercy would be grateful for anything; she has learned to expect disappointment, even cruelty, from men.
But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters...and strangers. Now they face challenges: to put their bitterness aside and live like family, to protect each other from danger - and to unite against an enemy who threatens to destroy all. And finally, to weave together three very different worlds in this beautiful and isolated place called Montana.
"Roberts balances the tension and sometimes gruesome action with three romances, crackling dialogue and a snappy infusion of humor." (Publishers Weekly)
"All six of the major characters are wonderfully written, with just the right touch of genuineness, warmth, and distinctiveness to make readers emotionally invest in their stories." (Library Journal)

Rape is NOT lovemaking. REPULSED!
Offensive that authors show rape as being something women enjoy or something that a man who supposedly loves a woman likes to do and she likes it. I'm sorry, sex in bondage with the woman saying no is rape and not lovemaking and I am totally appalled this is churned out to women as romance.
Turned me off this author.
I cannot get my head out of my fury that she wrote a rape scene as romantic to think of anything good to say about this author.
Any suggestion that forced sex with a woman's hands cuffed against her will and saying NO is something she is going to enjoy. That is totally offensive. Not only that it is dangerous as it suggests a woman should be degraded as being good. I cannot express how appalled I was by that scene strongly enough.
If it were a physical book it would have been thrown at the wall. I will be advising people NOT to buy a Nora Roberts book.
