ABOUT THE BOOK
Julia Gilliland has always been interested in the natural world around her. She particularly enjoys her outings to the cavern near her father’s homestead, where she explores for fossils and formations, and plans to write a book about her discoveries. The cave seems plenty safe–until the day a mysterious intruder steals the rope she uses to find her way out.
Rafe Kincaid has spent years keeping his family’s cattle ranch going, all without help from his two younger brothers, who fled the ranch–and Rafe’s controlling ways–as soon as they were able. He’s haunted by one terrible day at the cave on a far-flung corner of the Kincaid property, a day that changed his life forever. Ready to put the past behind him, he plans to visit the cave one final time. He sure doesn’t expect to find a young woman trapped in one of the tunnels–or to be forced to kiss her!
Rafe is more intrigued by Julia than any woman he’s ever known, but how can he overlook her fascination with the cave he despises? And when his developing relationship with Julia threatens his chance at reconciliation with his brothers, will he be forced to choose between the family bonds that could restore his trust and the love that could heal his heart?

My Review of this book

Ralph and Julia meet in a cave, one that Ralph has lived next to all of his life, and Julia finds out about it through nosing around. Ralph was attracted to Julia from the start, but she wasn’t so sure about him. Ralph just couldn’t figure out where she came from, after all no one lived around them anywhere, and clearly she had no way of traveling, just by foot. As this story unfolds, it is unusual but also romantic because of the relationship that is building between Ralph and Julia. They find out more about each other, even though Ralph isn’t very happy about what is going on with Julia’s family.  Join this couple on their journey and Julia talks Ralph into investigating this cave more, along with more caves in the area.
If you like historical fiction with a nice romance to boot, you will love this book to you.
