The Patriot by Jennifer Millikin

I was in the mood for a read that was a little heavier and this delivered. Military reads are a hit or miss for me, but add a cowboy twists to it and I am down to give it a shot. I am so glad I did. Jennifer delivered with this beautiful story the had alll the romance.

This book was fantastic. It had the crazy and the romance and throw in a fake relationship nd that sealed the deal for me. I was HERE fort he couple and the entire world this book take place in. It has the small-town feel you love with the family you won't want to stop being a part of.

I’m a soldier.
A cattle rancher.
A Hayden.

My family’s legacy is spread out in front of me, just waiting for me to seize it. If it weren’t for one outdated rule, I’d be the owner of the Hayden Cattle Company and my aging father could retire.

When Dakota Wright shows up to buy and develop twenty acres of Hayden land, I see more than a pretty mouth and strawberry blonde hair. I see a way around the decree keeping me from getting what I want.

And, as luck would have it, Dakota has a big problem of her own. We strike two deals: one for the land, and a second that’ll make both our problems a distant memory.

It isn’t too long before I realize I’m in over my head. I’ve convinced myself the ends should justify the means, but everything begins to fall apart when my birthright is no longer all that I’m after.

I never thought there’d be anything I could love more than my ranch and my country.
I was wrong.

Turns out, I want it all.
Including her.
