The Taming of the Bachelor by Jane Porter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Gorgeous but geeky smart Dillon has always had a crush on Paige, but she’s eight years older, widowed with two kids, and seems like the marrying kind. He’s convinced he’ll never marry and doesn’t want kids, so he’s reluctant to follow up when sparks fly between the two of them.
Paige is a transplanted California girl, staying in Montana so that her kids can grow up near their paternal grandparents. Dillon’s been home taking care of his family’s ranch for the past three years and when Paige can’t help but feel the attraction when they meet, she tells herself she could settle for a short term fling with such a sweet and sexy guy.
After the two finally start seeing each other and Dillon finds he enjoys being with Paige and her children, he starts having second thoughts about the relationship. And with his feet getting colder and colder, he hightails it to Texas to reaquire his old business. He’s just about convinced himself that he’s happy there, with his company and friends and empty house, but that doesn’t explain the leap of joy he feels when Paige shows up unexpectedly and passion reignited!
This is a lovely romance about two people with seemingly insurmountable personal obstacles to a relationship, who find that love really can conquer all! Another great book from the queen of the easy, breezy read…
