Marooned with the Maverick (Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys, #1)

Marooned with the Maverick (Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys, #1) - Christine Rimmer I really enjoyed the setting of this book. It opens with a devastating flood that wipes out part of a small mountain town in Montana. During the aftermath of the flood, Willa and Collin become friends then lovers. They knew each other growing up and both had crushes on each other yet neither acted on it because he’s a bad boy and she’s a good- girl. Apparently in Montana, bad boys can’t date good girls? It’s this lack of believable conflict that kept me from fully engaging in the romance. Also, neither Willa nor Collin really pop as fully formed people to me. They seem a bit vague and flat.

What did capture my attention is all the flood stuff. I think the author did a great job describing what it's like to experience that kind of natural disaster and how it affects a small town and its citizens.
