Romance Historical | Romance Western

The final book in the Where the Trail Ends series by Anna Schmidt is titled LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER. A highly anticipated ending to the historical western romance series. It's a story that is set in the late 1890's when cattle ranchers and sheepherders are having a hard time coexisting in the Arizona Territory. The tension is at an all-time high for everyone trying to make a living.

Trey and Neil own ranches that border each other. They both are struggling to make a living and keep the peace. Neil is a strong resilient woman that manages to persevere through tough times. She is known to stand her ground and not back down. When her attraction to Trey turns serious, they decide to marry because it would be best for her son Joshua.

LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER is a compelling story describing the rough and ruggedness of the American West during a time of uncertainty. Somehow a beautiful romance blossoms in the middle of the dust, dirt, and unknowns of the time. Trey and Neil are two intriguing and complex characters that are well developed. Trey is described as a dreamer, but Neil seems to be attracted to the bigger picture overall. Neil knows that together they can build a future worth fighting for.

LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER is the last book in a series that is full of drama with the ups and downs of living in a time when work was hard and the pay was little to none. A time where dreamers were few and far between. A time when working with your hands meant providing for your family. It's a story that is full of raw emotion and hopes for a better life. This adventure was an eye- opening read that shows a slice of history and a loving family grow. A truly enlightening read.

"You can't be sure we're doing the right thing," she said.

He drew closer to the barbed wire separating them. "It's impossible to know what's right. But it doesn't stop me from wanting you."

The world is changing, and the West isn't as wild as it used to be. Trey Porterfield welcomes a new era of law and order—and the influx of settlers coming to the Arizona territory. But not everyone is willing to see the old ways change, and as the cattlemen and the herders take sides, a full-blown range war may be inevitable. There's only one way Trey can see to bring peace to his feuding neighbors.

Marry the enemy.

Nell Stokes is a young widow fighting just to stay alive. In Trey, she sees a chance to heal old wounds and start over. Love was never in the cards, yet as Trey and Nell fight to unite the feuding land, they'll discover a passion neither could have expected...and a danger far greater than either has ever known.
