There is a moment in every woman’s life where she comes to the realization that no matter how much she loves, how much she pours her soul into a relationship, no matter how hard she may try, she cannot fix what doesn’t want to be fixed. If someone does not want to change, if someone does not want help, there is nothing you can do to will it so. Sure, your love for that person might be a driving force behind them wanting to change, but just you being there and loving hard enough isn’t all it takes. The other party has to want it too, and if they don’t? Sometimes the only thing you can do is let go.
That’s what Amy Wilson realizes about Jack Shepherd in Donna Alward’s latest, Her Rancher Rescuer. Living in a small town, and being single, Amy’s dating pool has been the size of a wading pond. Naturally she’s dated most of the eligible bachelors in town, and naturally none of those relationships worked out. So now it’s “poor, desperate Amy who cannot find a man.” She’s sick of it, tired of it, and knows that if she wants any sort of life she needs to get out of the rut she’s in, which means going to work at Jack Shepherd’s Montana ranch, which doubles as a corporate retreat.
