New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery creates the small-town destination for romance in charming Fool's Gold, California - where a loner cowboy finds the one woman who can capture his heart.
After Phoebe Kitzke's kind heart gets her suspended from her job in LA, she swears off doing favors - until her best friend begs for help on the family ranch in Fool's Gold. Unfortunately, sexy cowboy Zane Nicholson isn't exactly thrilled by the city girl's arrival.
Thanks to his brother's latest scheme, Zane has been roped into taking tourists on a cattle drive. What Phoebe knows about ranching wouldn't fill his hat, but her laughter is so captivating that even his animals fall for her. One slip of his legendary control leads to a passionate kiss that convinces him she's exactly the kind of woman a single-minded loner needs to avoid.
In his arms, Phoebe discovers she's a country girl at heart. Yet no matter how much the small town feels like home, she can't stay unless Zane loves her, too...but is this cowboy interested in forever?

This book might not be bad as a stand alone story. The fact that is sold under the heading of the Fool's Gold series is a great exaggeration. Mentioning a few characters previously met in earlier books and giving minor parts to a couple of them in this one does not make this part of the the series. The only reason the ranch is in Fool's Gold is because it has been brought into the city boundaries recently. A very convenient tool that allows the author to put this story under the Fool's Gold umbrella.
I have never been a big fan of Tanya Eby, her presentation makes me think of an adult reading to under fives. As this book was already irritating me her voice got on my nerves even more.
It took several sessions to get to the end of this story which to me is telling as I will often listen to a book like this in a day as I work.
I will be asking for my credit back on this one.
"Decent storyline, but seriously whiney characters."
If this was not in a series that I love, then I would not recommend it. The storyline and the ideas have great possibilities... having characters whining for two thirds of book is just wearing.
"Sweet Cowboy Romance in a Fun Setting"
I love the setting of being on a cattle drive. It took a nice spin on a cowboy romance story. I grew up around horses and with cowboys so they have a tender place in my heart too.
Phoebe has such a caring heart, with a little spunk, and quirk thrown in. Talking to the animals made me smile.
Sooo many to pick from probably when she gets caught talking to the bull.
Yes and I have on more than one occasion. Whenever I need a simply, sweet, and feel good read it's one of my go to books. It's one of my go to cowboy books too. ;-)
Let me start out by saying I'm a hopeless romantic and adore a sweet love story. If you are wanting a complex plot and serious angst this isn't the story for you. Second this is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone.
There is excitement and quirky characters to keep your interest. There's great character development and reoccurring characters to fit with the series. It's my favorite Fool's Gold book I've read so far. I highly recommend it.
I enjoyed listening to this book very much. I will recommend it to my friends!
I have enjoyed the Fool's Gold series from the beginning. & always look forward to the next story. This one was a disappointment for me. I could never care about any of the. main characters & the plot is one of my least favorites.
H/H meet, fall in immediate lust, don't get along until they do , then decide it's true happy-ever-after love. all in about a week's time. uh uh. No! Plus, with the exception of a few FG characters showing up out of the blue, the town itself is nowhere to be seen. I'm sure many Susan Mallery fans will love this book.. I am a long -time fan myself , but this episode just didn't work for me. Sorry.
"Sweet!! Romantic!! Awwwww!!"
Loved it!! Another great book by Susan Mallery !!! And I love Tanya Eby as a narrator !!! This is a sweet, romantic story with some heart tugging situations and a little suspense thrown in. It was a wonderful listen!!!! Can't wait for the next book in the Fools Gold series!!!!
Another fantastic Fool's Gold book from the great Susan Mallery - I love getting lost in these romances!!
"My favorite so far in the series!!! Awesome!!"
I couldn't stop listening, In the car, at work, in bed, while cooking!! In my opinion, the best in the series.
