Loved the book and Jess!The heroine was a widow with an interfering mother in law and a son and a neglected farm. Jess has always wanted three things, dogs, a gun and a woman so when he hears the heroine is selling her dogs, he wants them and they start the an arrangement, he would work for her to earn them. I loved Jess, when he was born the cord wrapped around him causing some damage but Jess was just so amazing and I loved reading the way his mind operated. The heroine just wanted to live a life with her son but the town people would not have that. Loved the book.
