Emma Rosales is the heiress of the largest ranch in Texas—The Thorn. All the responsibilities of managing a million acres now fall into her fifth-generation hands. A task Emma could handle with her eyes closed…if The Thorn were any ordinary property.
The Thorn is home to many things. Clear, cloudless skies. Miles of desert scrub and craggy mountains. A quiet disrupted only by whispers of the wind. And an ancient web of secrets won’t let Emma out alive without a fight.
The Fifth Daughter of Thorn Ranch is a family saga as large as the state of Texas.

Oh my gosh, I love this author’s accent — she’s not kidding about that Southern drawl. Delightful! And love the premise of this book — thanks for sharing the video.
Terrific promo for this book and I loved hearing the author talk about this one, and her previous book. I enjoyed reading them both.
