When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?

Background to the story
I’m a huge fan and student of the romance genre. When I think back over all the decades of my relationship with love stories, a few classic plotlines rise to the top as my personal favourites. They inspire me and challenge me to adapt them into modern times and give them my own unique twist.
Undeniably Yours is my contemporary version of a Regency love story between a wealthy and well educated Countess and the man who works for her in her stables taking care of her horses.
The book begins with Meg attempting to fire Bo after inheriting her father’s ranch. As it turns out, Bo is a wee bit more difficult to fire than expected…..
