When GRACIE CASTLE agreed to be a surrogate mother to twins, she never expected to become their full-time mom. Thankfully, that’s when she discovers she inherited a large Texas ranch from a grandmother she’s never met. Clueless but desperate, she’s managing to hold her own until the babies decide to make an unexpected appearance.

Enter WHITMAN LOVETT, III a wealthy businessman who needs to lease three thousand acres of the Castle Ranch. He expects an easy deal, with the Castle Ranch in financial straits. He isn’t expecting to deliver a baby calf in a rainstorm or Gracie’s twins at the ranch. But Gracie and the babies manage to get under Whit’s skin and into his heart. The very thing he doesn’t want.

About Loralee Lillibridge

Writing romance and cozy mysteries with a Texas twang and a touch of humor, Loralee Lillibridge (aka Lora Lee), loves to tell stories with believable characters, small towns where everybody knows your business and quirky, but lovable, neighbors.

A native Texan, Loralee has called West Michigan home since her marriage, but still misses seeing the bluebonnets in the Spring. Her love of travel took her to Ireland to celebrate her 80th birthday. As a child with a vivid imagination, her library card was a treasured possession. Although encouraged by her high school English teacher to put her imagination into stories, Loralee’s first published novel, Accidental Hero for Harlequin, didn’t debut until after marriage and raising a family. Since then, she’s had a cozy mystery published by Bell Bridge Books and three romance novels published by Tell-Tale Publishing. Her greatest love, however, will always be her family.
If you like strong willed women, gorgeous hunks and all that goes with it, come follow Gracie and Whit.  Gracie doesn't know anything about ranching, but she takes on the responsibility of running the family ranch.  She admits she hasn't a clue but she takes it on her shoulders and dives in.  She's bound and determined to make it work.  Then enters Whit.  He just wants her signature on a lease for oil and gas. He plans on getting it and going far away from it all.   But life steps in, as always, and Whit ends up helping Gracie as a ranch hand, being a midwife of sorts, and he falls, falls hard for Gracie.   So there went his plans on getting far away.  If he'd open his eyes, he'd find that everything he would want is right there in Texas with Gracie and the ranch.  There are secrets and trust issues but Whit and Gracie learn to trust each other, learn how to ranch together and above all, they learn to love. You can't help be be warmed with a little smile on your face as you watch Gracie and Whit grow and learn.  They fit. They just have to learn to trust.  And don't forget the twins.  How could you? You feel that you don't want to book to end.  You want everything for Gracie and Whit.  The only downfall I found was, it ended and I wanted more of Gracie and Whit's lives. A charming, heart warming, lovely read.
