LULLABY IN LONE CREEK by Mary Manners
Dalton Merrill's life is bull riding. Now, due to an injury, that career has come to a close. He heads home to Lone Creek Ranch to recover and find his footing. Instead, he finds that his one-time afternoon tryst with Emilee Walker has left her very pregnant with his child. Dalton is not one to stay in one place, so how will he deal with this current situation? Emilee Walker has always loved Dalton Merrill. She not only gave her heart to him but she also gave herself as well. Though she knows that was wrong, soon she will be having his son. Dalton's home for now but will he stay? And if he does, will it be because he loves her or because he's being responsible?
Lullaby in Lone Creek is the second installment in the Lone Creek Ranch series and I enjoyed my trip back there. You catch up with what's going on with the ranch and some of the folks we first met in 'Lost in Lone Creek'. I liked getting to know Emilee and Dalton better. There was a lot of emotion to this story with a career ending, a baby on the way and wondering how it will all work out. You get a little more insight about why Dalton is the way the he is. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between our lead couple and watching as they worked through their difficulties. Now I'm looking forward to returning to the ranch for Lesson in Lone Creek.
