Under His Hands
I think one of the main reasons I prefer western historicals to other time periods is the strength of the women of that period. Hannah was brought West by her late husband, a harsh land, and then left to run his ranch following his death. Suitors showed up on her doorstep in order to get their hands on her land, not because they loved her. So Hannah handled things quite successfully on her own and was happy for it to remain that way until Lucas came along and accepted and loved her for who she was, not for what he could get out of her.
This is the first book in a spicy western trilogy, and I can't wait for the second book, Temptation, to come out later this year!
