Saddle Up for a Wildly Fun Ride in Mary Connealy's Latest. Bailey Wilde is one of the best new ranchers in the West. She's been living disguised as a man for a while, but when Gage Coulter comes to drive her off her homestead, he quickly realizes he's dealing with a woman--a very tough, very intriguing woman at that.Gage is an honest man, but he didn't make his fortune being weak. He won't break the law, but he'll push as hard as he can within it. Five thousand acres of his best range land is lost to him because Bailey's homestead is located right across the only suitable entrance to a canyon full of lush grass. Gage has to regain access to his land--and he's got to go through Bailey to do it.Spending a winter alone has a way of making a person crave some human contact. In a moment of weakness, Bailey agrees to a wild plan Gage concocts. Can these two independent, life-toughened homesteaders loosen up enough to earn each other's respect--and maybe find love in the process?
Fire and Ice is the third and last book in the Wild at Heart series by Mary Connealy. The three books follow the lives of the Wilde sisters, the first book was Kylie’s, the second was Shannon’s, and now this book gives us Bailey’s story. Bailey is the oldest of the sisters and undoubtedly the toughest. She can efficiently run her own homestead and doesn’t need anyone’s help, especially not from a man. A man, however, is her problem. Bailey’s homestead is right across an entrance to a valuable canyon. Gage Coulter, a man wanting to regain access to the canyon, which is full of grass for his livestock, proposes a deal. Things aren’t easy for the two. Bailey’s old war trauma still haunts her, Gage’s possessive mother arrives from Texas, and someone is attempting to kill Gage.
This was my absolute favorite book out of the three. I really enjoyed reading about Bailey and admired her toughness. She’s a strong woman, even at her weakest moments. I thought that her and Gage made a perfect pair. There’s nothing I like more than squabbling couples. Hands down, favorite book, favorite sister, and favorite pair.
If you haven’t read this series or anything written by Mary Connealy, I would a hundred percent recommend her books.
