He s mountain-tough. She s city-smart. The sparks are about to fly . . . 

Only the most resilient of souls could breathe new life into an all-but-forgotten town nestled in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains but what they get in return might be worth the heartache it takes to make it happen . . . 

Gracely, Colorado, was once a booming mining town. No one knows that better than Brandon Evans. His father s company kept the town thriving for years until Brandon threatened to expose his illegal practices and drove him away. Everyone blames Brandon and his brother for turning Gracely into a ghost town but the tenacious residents cling to a long-held legend about the land s healing powers. 

And Brandon has a plan to spin that legend into reality . . . 
Lilly Preston took a leap of faith and moved to Gracely a year ago to save her nephew from an abusive situation. She would do anything for him, even sacrifice her glamorous job. Reluctantly, the former PR hot shot takes a job at the ruggedly handsome Evans brothers Mile High Adventures, a company offering restorative Rocky Mountain vacations. 

Brandon thinks PR is pointless, and Lilly knows less than nothing about the outdoors. Which is exactly why they need each other in ways neither ever imagined . . .

Brandon Evans and his brothers are trying to right the wrongs of the past and put life back into the little town that their father's shading dealings stole by opening an adventure park. Their hope is that the park and it's rumored healing powers will draw tourists in, and also boost the economy of their little town, problem is they are having trouble swaying the opinions of fellow townsfolk. So, they decide to hire someone to help them with their public relations, which brings Lilly Preston into their lives, and the moment she is there she begins to shake things up!! And catch the eye of one certain brooding brother!

When Lilly Preston takes a PR job at Mile High Adventures park she knows that she is getting in way over her head, especially since she knows virtually nothing about outdoor activities, but she needs a job and they were hiring! And once she meets the brooding, but very handsome, brothers she knows she has her work cut out for her, they need her expertise, but not all of them are on board with what she does or has to offer them. Brandon especially... he has doubts that she can convince the townsfolk to come around to their new business... but she intends to change his way of thinking!

I really enjoyed meeting Brandon and Lilly, their story was well written, heartwarming and very addictive! I had initially planned on reading a chapter before bedtime, but I ended up getting sucked into their world and stayed there until the wee hours of the morning. I loved watching "the little dance" between to these two blossom into something truly special, it of course took them sometime to get to where they needed to be, but every little bump along gave their relationship a very realistic feel. I can't wait to make a return visit to the series, and get better acquainted with the other Evans men... and the ladies who fall under their spell! Highly recommend this one, this charming little town and it's residents are sure to pull you into their world, and have you never wanting to leave!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
