Ruby Riding meets a handsome strong man, Rolf Lowell, on the way to her granny.  Ruby Riding’s attracted and feels a tingle.  What is it about this man?  Is there more to him than meets the eye?  As Ruby Riding’s granny lay dying, she warned Ruby not to sell her land to the stranger;  he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  When Cliff Duke, representing Duke Agricultural Land Trust comes calling, Ruby gives him short riff;  stating her grandmother had changed her mind about selling the land.  Cliff tries to explain the Trust is not buying the land, but Ruby can only hear her granny saying:  don’t sell to the stranger, he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

However, Cliff has her grandmother’s signature on the dotted line and he’s going to shadow her for three months.  Cliff tries to figure out Ruby’s book-keeping system of sales, producers, and buyers.  However, like Ruby, her systems very different and imaginative.  Ruby’s a free spirit, full of life and happiness; no time schedules, no restrictions, playing games with the employees at work. Cliff’s determined to take Ruby in hand and change her ways.  Cliff’s a buttoned down, hard-working, organized person, who likes schedules and organization.  Ruby thinks he needs to relax and enjoy life.

A different take on Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, Kate Palmer created a wonderful romance.  However, Cliff and Ruby are bound to butt heads.  What will be the outcome between Cliff, Ruby, and Rolf?  Who’s foe and who’s friend?  My romance book reviews of A Wolfish Dilemma follows.
