The Legacy of Copper Creek by R.C. Ryan

Whit is a bachelor on purpose.  He's not going to get all lovey dovey and silly like his brothers.  He's doing just fine on his own and he can find willing partners for sex.  Why marry?

Forever and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published the 28th, so you can grab a copy then.

Cara is jobless, her dreams and hopes shattered and she only wants to get her head back together.  When she hears one man threaten another, she runs.  The only problem is that the evil eyed man is after her.  She ends up abandoning her car and running into the woods.  The only good news is that there is a range cabin there she can stay in while she figures out what to do.  She certainly didn't want any company.  When Whit stumbles in because of the blizzard outside, she greets him with a gun in his back.  He manages to overcome her (and finds out the gun is a broom handle) and then the two both snarl at each other.  He dismisses her, takes the bottom bunk she's been using and tells her he'll talk to her in the morning.  Cara is dismayed to find herself snowed in with this grizzly bear of a man.

The story is set in a peaceful valley in Montana where ranchers are common.  Whit and his family raise cattle and a few horses.  There's someone bad in the valley, though.  Whit's father was shot through the back and killed and now a neighbor has been shot and killed also.  He wonders if the man she saw and heard might not be the killer.

Whit has one big happy family and most of them converge on the ranch for dinner.  Luckily Cara can cook, so she takes over the kitchen to pay her way for the room and board they offer her.  But Mr. Evil Eyes is still looking for her and when he finds her, there's hell to pay.
