When it comes to series romances, Iím often leery about them for the simple fact that with my incredible luck I always seem to read the second book instead of the first. In the case of A Husband of Her Own I didnít have that feeling that I was missing something special by getting to know every character from the first novel. This is such a stand-alone sequel some readers will not be believe there was a first.

Rebecca Wells is considered Dundee`s Ďbad-girlĒ, Rebecca is tired of everyone thinking of her in that way. So when her father proposes that she call a truce with the man she has loathed for twenty-four years, she knows it will change her reputation but it is hard to be nice to the town`s golden boy Josh Hill. Josh has everything she ever wanted; He is very good-looking, successfull at his horse breeding business, and has the love and adoration she so desperately craves from her father.

As Rebecca and Josh spend more time together, she starts to have different feelings for the man she loves to hate! Is it possible the Rebecca secretly hates that she loves him?

I have been sort of in reading slump this past month but reading A Husband of Her Own has brought me out. Do you remember when your mother told that the boy who picked on you in school secretly liked you? That applies to Rebecca and Josh`s situation, the pranks they pulled on each other were juvenile and immature but a source of amusement that will have readers laughing out loud. If you like your hero and heroine to be at odds with one another before they give in to that wonderful feeling called love, then this is the book for you. Iím eagerly anticipating the next installment from the town of Dundee, Idaho.
