Romance Book Review: Fortune's Honor

Author: Jamie Craig
Series Connection: Good Fortune Ranch
ISBN: 978-1-60272-190-2
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Paige comes for a visit to meet her fiance, Ty's, family. Waiting for Ty to meet her at his family's ranch, Paige has a chance to get to know Ty's dying mother and his older brother Clay.

Clay works hard on the ranch and it is lonely work. Even though he knows Paige belongs to his younger brother, he enjoys having her there to keep the loneliness at bay. Then on the night his mother dies, Paige offers Clay comfort, but she knows she can't be his, because of her promise to Ty.

Fortune's Honor is a heart felt story about a lonely rancher who meets a woman perfect for him, but a little too late. This story is sensual, romantic and sweet. It is the first of two books so far, about the brother of Good Fortune Ranch. It's a good quick read, although for some reason I kept waiting for something to happen, but I'm not sure what.

Clay Putnam has always been the responsible one in his family. He runs the family ranch, Good Fortune, by himself and takes care of his ailing mother. He is happy to make sacrifices so his brothers can follow their own dreams, especially his younger brother, Ty, a bull-rider on the professional rodeo circuit. But he leads a very lonely life, and he longs to meet a woman who could love his home, and his family, as much as he does.

Paige Murphy fell for Ty's boyish charm and exuberance, and she agrees to spend her summer vacation at the Good Fortune Ranch while Ty follows the rodeo all over the western states. She is happy to be engaged to Ty.

Until she meets his older brother. Clay is mature, thoughtful, and very attractive. She thinks he might be interested in her as well, but they resist their mutual desire out of love and respect for Ty.

Passion and a surprising tragedy drives Paige into Clay's arms, but honor, not infatuation, dictates who they are.
