A "Battle of the Sexes" Story!

When Heather Hart was fifteen, her parents brought her to Wyoming to visit her grandfather’s ranch where she met cowboy Tristan Rogers when he helped patch her twisted ankle. Young, sweet, and impressionable, she promptly lost her heart to the young rodeo rider. Twenty years later Heather has been summoned by her dying grandfather to determine if she is worthy, being the last of the Harts, to inherit the ranch.

The man she’ll be competing against for the prize is none other than Tristan Rogers, the ranch's current foreman, who loves the land like no other. Heather has one month to learn five things about the ranch and Tristan is given the task of “showing her the ropes,” so to speak.

Heather recognizes her adversary and uses all the weapons in her arsenal to fight for Hart Ranch, namely sex appeal and attitude aplenty. But Tristan can’t help remembering the sweet young girl who'd had a crush before she became this hellcat on high heels. As Heather tries to transform into a woman worthy of her grandfather’s approval, Tristan works to learn what embittered her and tries to win her heart and trust.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content and graphic language.


A Silver Lining is a touching and emotionally fulfilling read about the perils of youth and how it shapes a person as they grow into adulthood. Misconceptions are often unrealized until hindsight is in the late future.

Heather has a lot of emotional baggage she carries around. Now with her grandfather on the verge of dying she’s thrust back into the one place she felt had the only good memory of her short lived childhood. Tristan has worked his tail off for the ranch and believes it belongs to him, Heather a spoiled ‘acting’ wanton woman uses the many wiles she possesses to disarm him. He makes her work hard to please her grandfather. During their time passion explodes and the hidden vulnerable side of Heather peaks through the layers of attitude she displays. I really enjoyed how this story ended and how time back on the ranch healed old wounds enough to live in the present.
