CALDER PROMISE by Janet Dailey

That family again (Green Calder Grass, 2002, etc.).

On the grand tour of Europe with Aunt Tara, 21-year-old Laura Calder finds continental elegance and decorum unimpressive and fights the impulse to shout “Yee-haw!” at swanky soirées. She could get away with it, seeing as how she’s blond, built, beautiful—and knows it. Soon she has two suitors: Boone Rutledge, sexy son of a Texas zilllionaire, and Sebastian Dunhill, the Earl of Crawford. So who will it be? Boone and his sensually smoldering, alpha-male attitude, or Sebastian, who does a fabulous job of kissing her feet and toes? Meanwhile, back in Montana at the Triple C, the Calder clan is wondering how their Laura is making out. Ranch life just isn’t the same without her around to raise hell. But Laura soon returns with both lovers (just to liven things up), and she calls the shots in this satisfying if not soul-stirring romance.

Solid, well-paced read with an appealing, multigenerational cast. As usual, Dailey delivers.
