Overview
After a turbulent childhood, the Morgan brothers went their separate ways, leaving the family cattle ranch and their cowboy days far behind. But now, one by one, they're being called back home to California. Have they been summoned to save the land--or to start a new legacy?

Chase Morgan high-tailed it away from ranching life as soon as possible. But running a successful technology company can't erase the memories, or secrets, of his youth. Coming home to help his Grandma Ruth may finally put some ghosts to rest--if he can just get a certain smart, beautiful houseguest out of his business. But getting her out of his head is proving even more difficult...
Determined to save the Morgan ranch, historian January Mitchell has pinned her hopes on the surprisingly rugged, surprisingly likable, and exasperatingly stubborn Chase. Surely his love of this breathtaking, mysterious land runs deep enough that he'll once again embrace his inner cowboy. Or maybe, despite both of their skittish hearts, she'll have to find a way to get him back in the saddle...any which way she can.

"If you love cowboys--and who doesn't--you'll love the Morgans " --Cora Seton, New York Times bestselling author

Toxic masculinity oozes from the first book in Pearces Morgan Ranch series to such an extent that its not clear whether Pearce has set it up as a plot obstacle or is simply swimming in it herself. At the request of his grandmother, Chase Morgan returns to his family cattle ranch in Northern California, a place he resents because it makes him feel uncomfortable emotions, which he sees as weakness. He decides the best way to stop feeling things will be to convince his grandmother to sell the ranch. Unsurprisingly, she resists, as does historian January Mitchell, who is studying the ranchs history. She wants to make Chase relive his unhappy experiences and work through his feelings rather than running from them. When he offends her, she understandably gets angry, but then she feels bad about it and tries to pacify him. The romantic thread is overwhelmed by Chases desire to manage everything and everyone, and the offense he feels when hes called out on it. And Januarys willingness to make excuses for him and forgive him, especially given that shes recently escaped her manipulative ex-husband, will frustrate readers who think she could do so much better than another overbearing, controlling man. (Dec.)
