Be careful what you wish for-

Meg Zabrinski, successful scientist, well-known environmental advocate, and tenured professor is as independent as they come in Montana. She doesn't need a man in her life, but she does want to have a baby. She retreats to her isolated mountain cabin to write and ponder her future when Henry Firestone–an old rival and former secret crush from her distant past–drops out of the sky on Christmas Eve with three young children and a baby. Meg doesn't believe in cosmic signs, but even she realizes she'd be crazy not to consider all her options.

The sparks that have always smoldered between them ignite a mutual passion, but when Henry Firestone makes it clear he's done having children, Meg is forced to accept that falling in love with Henry and his ready-made family would require her to abandon her dream. Can this "Lone Wolf" assimilate into a new pack, or is this Big Sky Maverick meant to be alone?

Meg and Henry have to deal with the decisions they've made it their younger years. Some of those decisions turned out to be not as good as they originally thought they were. Many did not come to fruition as planned. Sometimes life does go the way we plan. But when life gave them lemo s they made lemonade. I loved the way Salonen handled the problems incurred by both Meg and Henry.

I think the beginning was nice. The middle rushed a bit, then the end was ok.

I would have scored it higher, it was a nice summer read. Kept me interested. Just a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes, but I understand it was free.

I truely wish there were more books like this. Nothing comes easy. As a boomer & widow, I related to the cancer issues, the real life issues that grandparents have to face with raising their grandchildren. Professional men & women making tough decisions regarding advancement and family/marriage/children. Thank you for a good read. Clean romance, and a chance to dream.

Montana Maverick by Debra Salonen is a fantastic read. This is a fairly quick read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading. Ms Salonen has delivered a well-written book and filled it with lovable, amazing characters. The characters in this book transformed this story from nice to awesome. Meg and Henry's story is loaded with action, drama, sizzle and humor. I was hooked from the first page. I totally enjoyed Montana Maverick and look forward to reading more from Debra Salonen in the future. Montana Maverick is book 4 of the Big Sky Mavericks Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I really loved Meg, Hank and his grandchildren in this book and the way they met during the blizzard couldn't have been more heart pounding. This is a story that will keep me thinking about it long after I've read it. This whole series has been wonderful!

Meg Zabrinski is a strong, independent woman. She's alone in her isolated cabin when a helicopter crashes nearby. This 'angel in snowshoes' rescues Henry Firestone and his four grandchildren. They spend Christmas stranded in her cabin. They may have started out as enemies but their time together awaken strong feelings. Can they find love that will last forever? Henry is grieving for his daughter. He promised that he would raise her children here in Montana. Meg wants a child of her own. Can both their dreams come true? Montana Maverick brought me to tears. This is a powerful and emotional journey. I couldn't put this book down. The characters are amazing. Their emotions are raw and powerful. The isolation of a Montana blizzard increases the drama. I could relate to Meg's desire for a child. Just as I could understand Henry's situation. I loved the hint of paranormal that was woven into the story. The twist at the end was a complete surprise. I love the closeness of the Zabrinski Family. They provide the love and support that we all need and wish for. I loved this heartwarming story.

**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion** A heartbreaking and beautiful story! Meg wants a family, and she's going to do it on her own. But one airplane accident and rescue changed the course of her life. Henry is fighting to keep his grandchildren, being the parent his daughter asked him to be when she died. Trying to save the baby's life, keep all the kids together, and hoping to beat a storm--Henry takes the only risk he can and sets off to fly to a hospital for help. Unfortunately, they crash. Rescued by a Meg, woman from his past, his hard heart starts to melt while snowbound at her cabin. And, the impossible seems possible. Throughout all the years, they had mutual respect on differing views, but even more, a quiet attraction. For Meg to accept this ready-made family, she would have to give up giving birth to a child and all the dreams she thought she wanted. Fate has a way of making everything turn out as it should--no spoilers here--but love does conquer all the obstacles and answers prayers for a new family--a huge extended family. Buy this book!

I love that the hero and heroine are mature adults, that's rarely found in today's romance novels. They have life and history behind them, and know what they want for their future. Henry is a loving, caring grandpa, it was touching to read about his interaction with the kids, who were just adorable. Meg has achieved most in life that she has wanted, now she wants to simplify her professional life, to have a child, the one thing missing in her life. The attraction they have felt, while on opposite sides of political issues, comes to a full blown, passionate allure, when stuck on the mountain in the snow storm of the century. There were so many possibilities for a plot twists in this story - and I apology, for possible spoilers now - I wish the author would have picked up one, and fully developed it. Any one of them, would have given the story more impact, layers, and interest, now it felt scattered and superficial. There was the custody battle for Henry's grandchildren, Meg's need to have a child while Henry doesn't want one more, becoming the new family, the sorrow of loosing mother/daughter, the danger on the mountain in the snow storm, the political issues they were on opposite sides of, the surrogate motherhood, etc. Now all those issues were just glanced over. I really wanted to like this story, and like I said, the hero and heroine had so much potential for an amazing and unique tale, I wish it would have delivered that, now it was just an average love story without much depth, scoring it just barely ~ Three Spoons

A sweet story about finding love when you least expect it. They were oil and water. Cattle and wolves. Rancher and tree hugger. It shouldn’t have worked out, but it did. During a snow storm on Christmas Eve, Meg Zabrinski’s quiet evening was interrupted by a helicopter crash. Not being able to get any help from search and rescue, she straps on her snow shoes and hikes out to find out if there are any survivors. What she didn’t expect to find was Henry Firestone and his grandchildren. Meg and Henry had different beliefs. Meg fought for the wolves and their wellbeing. Henry believed in protecting his cattle. If it meant shooting a wolf to save them, he would do it. Little did they know the short time together would bring them closer than either ever imagined. With their differences set aside, they could be great together. Would this family be enough to make Meg’s life feel full? This book is well written with great characters and details.
