I guess you know you are getting older when you take a look at a cover like this and think "What a cute baby-face". Despite the fact that he is too young for me, I have to admit I liked the book. Montana Legacy is a romance novel in which the man plays the starring role, and the woman is the co-star, not the star. Jesse was raised on his grandfather's Montana ranch, along with two cousins near his own age. Besides the ranch, the family legacy included a bag of gold which disappeared when an ancestor was killed. Jesse's grandfather spent his life searching for the gold, and that search caused serious rifts in his own family. Grandpa dies, and his will said that if the cousins (who haven't been back to the ranch since their parents moved them away years ago) stayed on the ranch and searched for the treasure, they would share in the treasure and the ranch. Part of the story deals with these three young men getting to know each other again, and searching for the treasure. About the same time, Jesse's high school sweetheart comes back to town and sparks fly. A bad guy also emerges and tries to harm Jesse.
I found this book to be a cut above many romance novels as there were other characters and conflicts besides boy loves girl. It isn't a chaste romance, but there is only one bedroom scene (and actually it's a barn scene) and while it didn't leave everything up to the readers' imagination, it wasn't the most descriptive I've ever read either.
I'd like to thank the nice folks at Hachette for sending me this book for review, and I'd like to offer you the chance to win a copy (I have five to give away). US or Canada only, no P.O.Boxes.
