When Carla Reece's brother loses his half of their ranch in a high-stakes game of poker she's less than pleased. Especially when the blond giant that swaggers up to her door makes her madder than wet hen and weak in the knees all at the same time.
Carla had never met anyone more infuriating in her life. No matter how stupid her brother had been for gambling away his stake of the ranch, his usurper had no right to take over her land. But her new foreman claimed to be some foreign royalty and promised to leave after a year. Still, a year was way too long to spend with such an exasperating man.
Ivan may have charmed everyone in town into thinking he was the perfect gentleman, but Carla knew better. There had to be a chink in his armor-a red hot-passion under that calm, cool gaze. But once she finds it, she may be in for more than she ever bargained for.

Greenwood’s charmingly old-fashioned sixth Night Riders 1870s western (after 2010’s When Love Comes) offers up a stalwart hero but fails to give him a solid story. Ivan Nikolai is a penniless Polish prince who will be able to return home and restore the family name if he spends a year as caretaker for a ranch owned by the Night Riders’ nemesis, Laveau diViere. Carla Reece cannot accept that her younger brother lost his half of the family birthright in a card game with diViere, and she vows to fight the claim, holding onto her misplaced righteous indignation against the courtly Ivan. Her early stubbornness is stereotypically “feisty,” though she is an otherwise worthy heroine. Ivan’s earnest yet sly intelligence and fish-out-of-water reactions to Texas customs add to his appeal, but the couple’s sweet romance cannot overcome the outlandish premise or diViere’s nine lives.
