Rancher Jake Langston prides himself on being the sensible type. But five years after the loss of his wife left him to raise their daughter alone, he indulges in a one-night stand with a sexy stranger. He thought he’d never see the woman again. Four months later, though, she’s standing in his drive with a big surprise.
Bryn Talbot wants nothing from the hunky cowboy who got her pregnant, but her Southern nature demands she at least tell him about it. When Jake’s family persuades her to stay for a while, she’s soon won over by their charms—and by Jake. But with the losses the two of them have suffered in the past, neither is sure if they’re ready to take the leap to forever...
I love the cover art on this book, total cozy home holiday card feeling. If you read Loving a Lawman you have to pick Healing a Heart up, I had a hard time with the way Loving a Lawman ended but reading this book I think I love Loving a Lawman so much more.
Lillard gives readers a reason to hold onto hope that Jake and Bryn can get over their head butting to opening up the blanket of frustration and mule headed stubbornness to finding something more honest, deeper and real.
It took awhile for these two to really capture me until now because there was so much tension and clashing that it was almost off putting however the investment was well worth the time both Lillard and myself as the reader have put into them.
Although Loving a Lawman was Jess and Seth's story we know these two from that book and have been waiting to see what would happen with these two since.
This is a complex dual layer emotional turmoil love but totally worth it in the end. I really enjoyed Healing a Heart. Way to go Lillard.
