Description of this Book

Romance writer Maddie Taylor's career is in trouble. Convinced that true love does not exist outside of her imagination, she can't complete her current manuscript. When a friend, Jonah Spartman, dies and wills her half of his cattle ranch, she seizes the chance to leave New York City. There is one catch: in order to inherit she must stay in Arkansas for three months. The other half of the ranch belongs to Gideon Spartman, Jonah's grandson, a black-ops veteran whose humanity was torn from him in Afghanistan. Rugged and sexy, Gideon embodies the hero in Maddie's current manuscript. He is far from happy to be sharing an inheritance that is rightfully his with a gold-digging bimbo and resents having to care for his two orphaned nephews. But Maddie senses the need behind Gideon's rough and unwelcoming exterior. She must also contend with the two love-starved boys and an Angus bull who craves chocolate. The ranch is hardly the safe haven Maddie expected. It is operating in the red, and the area is plagued with drug dealers and cattle rustlers. Maddie can return to her barren New York existence or stay and fight to save the ranch and win Gideon's love. The choice is hers.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A bull hooked on chocolate plays the hero in this love story of two people struggling to restore their destroyed lives. Maddie's Choice is a touching family story that will have readers laughing and crying simultaneously. Zeller has created flawed but sympathetic characters and a bucolic setting that will appeal to readers of all ages. A must read for anyone who has ever dreamed of living on a ranch. As Maddie is fond of reminding herself, 'How hard can it be?' --Velda Brotherton, author of western historical romances Joyce has walked the walk with her Western romance set on a cattle ranch. Good read! --Dusty Richards, Spur winning author of more than 120 western novels, many under the name, Josh Logan This is a book about life and its content is very explicit at times. It's also about cattle rustling, drugs, and the way adults and kids go about getting what they want and need. I thought it was very well written. I give it a thumbs up. -Maryann Wakefield, author of A Gentle Sun Coming
