Undeniably Yours...Review

About the book:
When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his empire. The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's Thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo knows he ought to resent the woman who's determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them and earn her love. Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their relationship--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

Meg has never been interested in oil and has never desired to lead her father's company.  But, after his sudden death, she's forced to do just that.  Her father's holdings are vast and having no interest in horses, she decides to sell off his thoroughbred horse farm.  Bo Porter, the farm's manager, refuses to accept his severance offer and manages to convince Meg to give him 6 months to come up with the money to make the ranch self-supportive.  Meg soon takes an interest the ranch, and as their friendship deepens, Bo and Meg resist the depth of their feelings.  When Meg's past comes back to haunt her, however, their relationship is forever threatened.

It's not very often you come across such a well written male lead.  Bo Porter is the strong heroic cowboy with a solid faith in God and family.  His family is terrific.  I enjoyed the subplots with Amber and Meg's desire to do something to help others, rather than just run her father's company.  As she finally discovers what her heart truly wants to do, she discovers her true joy.  I did find Stephen frustrating and that Meg could so quickly distrust Bo, but I loved his faith that things would work out and his strength in protecting her.

This is a real, heartwarming story and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.  As it's the first in a series, I am anxious for more and I hope that Amber's story is next and that Jake figures strongly in it!
