Release Date: August 4, 2022


Luke Adler lives for his ranch. It’s the only reason he agreed to get on board with his sister’s grand plan for guests staying on the property.

Nothing prepares him for the force of nature that is Samantha Morrison. When she arrives on his ranch to help construct this new part of his business, what he expects and what he gets are two entirely different things.

He expects a no-nonsense businessman. Straightforward and simple.

What he gets is a sunshine smile, sweet sass, and a woman who pushes every button and boundary he has.

He tries to ignore the draw, the urges she makes him feel. But when she gets close, he only wants her closer.

She makes him question his decisions, his thoughts, and the idea that being alone is best for him.

Even when they are consumed by the fire between them, he knows they come from two different worlds and he has to let her go.

But when the time comes, can he do that?
Can he live without her sunshine to warm his cold heart?
Or can this cowboy learn a new trick?


Author’s Note: Heat and heart fills the pages as our heroine learns to ride a horse and tame a grumpy cowboy in rural Alberta.

Sunshine & Sammy by Melanie Moreland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is only one word that can describe this story and that is swoon with a capital S.
Right from the get-go we get sucked into this story that left me with a light heart and a huge smile on my face.

Luke was on board with the renovations but what he wasn’t prepared for was for Sam to be a gorgeous, smart and take no prisoners kinda woman. He reacts badly but is quickly put into his place by her. The more time he spends in her company the more he’s drawn towards her. He is fighting his awakening feelings and desires until they reach a breaking point and when they finally fall into each other’s arms he sees that the only place he can be happy and content is with her.

I loved Sammy. I loved how she handled herself. Despite the not so warm welcome to the ranch, she sees something in the grumpy Luke. It was fun to read how hard they both fought their feelings. With every page I read all I wanted to do was find me a cowboy and ride off into the sunset.

To summarize this: fun, easy, hot and most of all swoony!!!

She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
