Publisher Description

Locked in an unexpected land dispute, Rafe Stryker is trapped in the one place he vowed never to return to — the Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. He made millions facing ruthless adversaries in the boardroom, but nothing could’ve prepared him to go head-to-head against stubborn, beautiful Heidi Simpson. No one is more surprised than Rafe to discover that he’s finding Heidi — and life as a cowboy — much more compelling than he wants to admit. For Heidi, the Castle Ranch is the home she’s always wanted. After a life on the road, the vivacious blonde has finally put down roots. She won’t give that up without a fight, not even for a man whose late-night kisses make her yearn to be a little less…wholesome. As the two turn from passionate adversaries to passionate, period, they’ll discover that summer love can last a lifetime.

    " Another excellent Fool's Gold book. I loved Heidi and her goats when I met them in the last book. After a life on the road with a carnival, she is more than ready for a real home. She put down a deposit on the ranch and moved in with her grandfather and her goats, where she is making a living selling cheese and handmade soaps. Her grandfather is a charming old rogue, who sold a part of the ranch to May Stryker to raise money for a friend with cancer. Problem is, it wasn't his to sell. Rafe has come to fool's gold to either get the land or the money back. He grew up poor and Fool's Gold and swore never to come back. Now a judge has said they must share the property until she can decide what to do. Soon May has she and Rafe moving into the ranch house with Heidi and Glen. Glen is putting the moves on May, and she has plans for the ranch that do include Heidi and Glen. Rafe is attracted to Heidi, but doesn't believe in love. He's looking for a business partnership type of wife. He also looks around at the land and sees prime development property for housing -- good for the bottom line. He also finds that as he is stuck on the ranch doing the work his mom wants done that he's enjoying it far more than he thought he would, and his San Francisco business is looking less appealing. When Heidi finds out about his plans for the land, she does something dishonest that she knows she shouldn't do, but does it anyway as a way to delay his plans. When it comes out, she's embarrassed and Rafe is angry. As the oldest when his father died, Rafe found himself (at the age of 10) being the man of the family and trying to take care of his mom and siblings. The people of the town helped also, but Rafe hated being an object of charity. Since then he has taken his job as oldest too far and been controlling and inflexible, alienating his two youngest siblings. Heidi had a friend who fell in love and was so badly hurt that she killed herself, plus her grandfather always claimed love didn't exist. Both of them have to confront their demons before they can find their HEA. I loved Heidi and how optimistic she usually was. Her goats were fantastic. I loved the scene where she came home drunk. I really liked Rafe too, especially once he started getting into the ranch life and spending more time with Heidi. He was also very good to his mother, even though she drove him nuts. "

    " Susan Mallery has made the reader feel like they are right on the ranch with a front row seat as to what is goinbg on. Can't wait to read more in the series. "

    " I enjoyed the romance between Rafe and Heidi- it was so LOL and refreshing. The storyline with the $2,500 was a tad bit bizarre but it worked out in the end. I'm excited to read the next two books of the trilogy. "

    " I like this book. I haven't read the others in the series, but I will read the ones about this family. Then maybe I'll read the first ones. "

    " Not terribly well-written. Requisite two graphic sex scenes. "

    " Another winner from Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series! Her characters are so real many of her readers plan trips to Fool's Gold to meet them. "

    " The story was so absurd. Hopefully, it was written tongue-in-cheek. I guess after a couple of interesting stories, it was time to embrace the ridiculous again. "

    " I wish Fool's Gold actually existed so I could visit! Susan has captured my attention once again with this small town story. I really enjoy when an author creates an on-going story through a family or town. I had a great time getting to read Rafe and Heidi's journey! "

    " I did like the story of Rafe and Heidi. Both characters were strong and there was humor in the book. I also like stories that are grounded in one place like Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold. For someone who grew up in a small town, I like how she knits the characters together. "

    " I love Susan Mallery & Fool's Gold!! Rafe & Heidi has a great chemistry together even though they are both stubborn. I feel so bad for Heidi, who finally has a home of her own. Rafe swore he would never go back to Fool's Gold, but he did it for his mother. I love May. She was something else! If you are looking for a good romance book, then this is it! You won't be disappointed! I can not wait to read Summer Nights! My plan is to read it on my side deck that over looks the city. I want to read it at night so I can see the city lights. It releases on June 26th!! "
