Crystal Stapleton has everything a princess could want: ski vacations, a suite to herself in her parents’ mansion, even her own Prince Charming. Too bad there’s a mean streak lurking under the surface of her fiancé, one that her parents refuse to see. With her father’s prodding to marry a well-connected and wealthy man and her mother’s constant, ugly, domineering attitude, Crystal is prepared to do as she’s told, regardless of how unhappy her future will be.
But a chance two-week stay at Carson Hill Ranch brings her not only a newfound sense of freedom and joy, it also brings her face to face with the decidedly good-looking and very unattached Jacob Carson. The more time she spends in Jacob’s presence, the less certain she is about the future her parents have laid out for her.
Will she accept the freedom a cowboy like Jacob can offer? Or will she do what she’s expected to do, no matter how much it hurts her heart?

Just when you think you have a favorite Carson brother, you read the next in the series. This is Jacob’s story, and I love Jacob. He is a man of few words, so when he speaks, you know it is something of worth and importance. Crystal is the woman is drawn to. She is on a hunting trip with her crazy fiance, father and their business associates. Jacob becomes completely in tune with her, seeing how her fiance is abusive and does what he can to help her. Over the course of the relationship you learn the heart of this man, and how Crystal becomes part of the Carson family.
Valerie Gilbert finishes out this 6 book brother series beautifully.

This is another great book about the Carson hill ranch. Crystal is a girl that her life has been planned out
She is marring a not so good guy but her parents want her to. She goes with her father on a hunting trip to the Carson hill ranch. Jacob is one of the sons and is overseeing the hunters. Jacob and Crystal becomes friends and crystal realizes she wants a change. Crystal and Jacob’s story is very good. I highly recommend this book and series
Valerie Gilbert does an excellent job narrating this book. I received a copy of this book from audiobooks unleashed but that has no influence on my review.
