❤When a second chance beckons, the heart beats an SOS. ❤
Colonel John Griffin Jr. is the best kind of military man. A good and honorable soldier determined to protect childhood friend Ellyn Sinclair at all costs – especially from himself.
Years ago, Grif rejected a young Ellyn's mild advances — despite how he felt about her — because he could not give her the life she deserved. Instead, Grif stood up as best man when Ellyn married his best friend. He became a member of the family, the godfather to her children.
But now Ellyn is a widow, living on his family's ranch with her two young children. No matter what it costs him, Grif will do his duty – help single parent Ellyn and her children, while ignoring that he’s never stopped wanting her.
Ellyn could not be happier at Grif’s homecoming to Far Hills, Wyoming. They’re friends, after all. Always have been. Always will be . . . no matter how the old Ellyn dreamed of a friends to lovers scenario. She’s an adult now and her kids are all that matter. No matter what their mutual of circle friends say about heat and chemistry.
The Army sends Grif back to the western small-town life he knew as a boy, the world of cowboys and cattle on Far Hills Ranch ... and back to the woman he’s always loved. But how can he even dream of second chances, when they should have no chance at all.
~ ~ ~
Far Hills Ranch has bound together the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there's been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse.

Well done. Looking forward to Luke's story. A bit quaint, but the female support between the women is great and the underlying background story adds an air of intrigue.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was great reading a booking
with a good story line about family values. I am going to immediately start on the third book in the series.
