Thank you, Alma Boucher at Reader's Favorite

Break Heart Canyon by Gini Rifkin is a romance combined with myth and legend. Ryker Landry is looking for the ancient relics of Break Heart Canyon, and Una MacLaren owns the land. She vows to protect the relics and keep them safe. She does not allow any trespassers and chases Ryker off her land with a rifle.
The local men do not want Una to succeed with her farm. They will do anything to make sure Una fails. Una is struggling to keep her goat farm and teams up with Ryker to help her. She is not sure if he wants to help her or is only after the relics.
Ryker's and Una’s lives are in danger and only trust can save them. Rumors are doing the rounds about the legend of the white cougar in Break Heart Canyon.
Break Heart Canyon had my attention from the first page until the last. I was captivated by the story and could not put it down. I just kept reading and did not want to miss anything. I was fascinated by the legends and enjoyed the mystery surrounding them. Gini Rifkin intertwined romance and historical facts to write this beautiful story. Her writing is excellent and descriptive. The events were described in detail. I was transported into a world of ancient relics and legends where the past and present meet. It was done superbly and naturally. The characters were well-developed and strong. The romance between Una and Ryker was handled excellently, and it was realistic. They were my favorite characters. I did not see the ending coming. It was a pleasant surprise.
