Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade

Back Cover:  When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his empire. The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo knows he ought to resent the woman who's determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them and earn her love.

Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their relationship--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive

Review: Meg is an artist. Not a rancher. Her fingers are more comfortable holding a paintbrush or a pen than the reins of some wild animal. The family wealth has always left her uncomfortable and negative experiences in the past have left her scarred. Sweet but reserved, Meg prefers her life in the shadows. Taking on the responsibility and elevated position that her inheritance demands is the thing of nightmares for her. However, Meg is determined to do her duty and wrap up the ranch, but God has different plans for her. Plans that involve a certain rancher and her father's thoroughbreds.

Meg and Bo's relationship seems doomed from the start. They come from two different social classes, she is his employer and he is the employee, she is wealthy and he is not, she has already been through a bad marriage and is not interested in another relationship, his lack of a college degree lowers his own self-image, and he is worried that his motives for dating Meg will be misinterpreted as he stands to loose his job if he fails to convince her to keep the ranch. It is amazing how love makes things work out though...

Becky Wade's novels are truly inspirational. Her characters are so flawed and so real. She is not afraid to include the elements and fralities of human nature that, well, make us human. And because of this, her romances are just amazing. Bo is a man's man - a real hero - and his love for Meg is just beautiful. Wade's male leads always have such powerful love for their women. I love it. Throughout the whole book, Wade weaves in Meg and Bo's faith and it is really neat to read along and see how God works with their hearts and changes both their futures in a way that neither of them could have predicted.
