They’re the McCords…three rugged, sexy cowboy cousins who’ll inherit the family range–if they seek the treasure hidden on it. But even more precious are the women who can tame their wild hearts…

Emergency medic Marilee Trainor likes her freedom and lives for trouble. But when she stumbles upon a clue to the legendary McCord gold, she ‘s suddenly in a mysterious killer’s sights–and the arms of irresistible playboy Wyatt McCord. This McCord cousin has been everywhere, yet the ranch is the only place he feels at home. Now Marilee’s courage and independence make him want to protect her, win her heart, and finally settle down. But trust is the one thing Wyatt and Marilee can’t easily give. And their survival and everything they cherish depends on whether they can surrender to each other–to fight for their…MONTANA DESTINY

My Thoughts

The McCord family has been tasked with finding the lost treasure of gold someone on their family’s land. Most of the townspeople think they are NUTS, but the McCords are absolutely sure about the gold on their land. They just need to find it. Apparently, there are other townspeople who need to get the McCords out of the way – so they can claim the gold for themselves.

As Wyatt and Marliee get closer to one another, one or more of these people is ready to get rid of both of them.

I really liked the story line, and although I didn’t read the first book in the series – Montana Legacy – it wasn’t a requirement in order to enjoy this book. All of the family members were enjoyable, but none of the characters distracted from Wyatt and Marilee, which was good. This book is for the romantics at heart and the women who enjoy reading about the dazzling hero who only has eyes for one woman.
