USA TODAY Bestselling Author
The Price of Passion by Maureen Child is the first book in Harlequin Desires’ new Texas Cattleman’s Club: Rags to Riches continuity series. This story exemplifies what I look for and love about continuity series. There’s love, passion, family, drama, and a little mystery.
The Price of Passion is a second chance love story featuring Beth Wingate and Camden “Cam” Guthrie. Fifteen years ago, eighteen-year-old Beth, the daughter of one of the most influential families in Royal, Texas, and nineteen-year-old Cam, the half Native American son of ranch hands loved each other deeply. They shared their hopes and dreams and planned to be together forever. That all changed when Cam suddenly married and left town with Julie Wheeler, a one time friend of Beth’s.
Cam and Julie built a good and prosperous life for themselves in Los Angeles, California. They amassed fame and fortune. But none of that saved Julie from dying of cancer. Now a year after her death, Cam returns home to work on reclaiming a portion of the dream he once had. Cam purchases the Circle K Ranch, the ranch he and his parents all worked on. The ranch where his parents died in a fire.
The fifteen years since she last saw Cam have been good for Beth. She’s gone to college and now finds herself working for her family’s charitable foundation. She’s more than happy to leave running the family business to her brothers and cousins. She’s grown as a person and is more reliant on herself. So what if her love life is in the gutter? Who needs a man and love anyway? Nothing prepares Beth for Cam’s return and seeing him all over town.
While the two strike up a truce and ultimately a relationship, things at Wingate Corporation, Beth’s family’s company, are taking a turn for the worse. It seems someone is looking to destroy the company and the Wingate name. The who and why remain to be seen.
I LOVED The Price of Passion. I’ve already looked ahead at the descriptions of the other books in the series and they all seem to be interconnected. This story mentions characters in the upcoming books and even gives you a little idea of what’s to come. As far as Beth and Cam go, these two never stopped loving each other. They are similar in so many ways. They both are stubborn and are really bad at communication. Their passion is explosive and shows that true love withstands the test of time.
