The USA Today–bestselling author “has a real flair for writing romantic tension and sexy love scenes” in this sequel to Never Love a Lawman (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
Her Heart Was Locked Away
Rhyne Abbot is fierce, brave, and used to a life of isolation on her father’s spread on the outskirts of Reidsville, Colorado. But when, overcome with sickness, she collapses, she knows she must return to town if she is to have any hope of recovery. Only there is no place for her but the new doctor’s home, and he wants more than just to heal Rhyne. He wants her hand in marriage.
Until One Man Found the Key
Doctor Cole Monroe’s hands are already more than full with his orphaned little sister to look after, and yet somehow he can’t resist the magnetic pull of Rhyne’s bewitching eyes—or her tempting kiss. But convincing her to trust him won’t be easy. For Rhyne’s heart needs as much tender care as her ailing body. And the only cure is the thing she most fears: to let herself fall in love . . .
“Delightful and romantic with enough intrigue and character building to be fun read.” —Fresh Fiction
Bestseller Goodman combines history, intrigue, medical science, and family secrets in this winning sequel to 2009's Never Love a Lawman. The year is 1884. Offered a surprise job in tiny Reidsville, Colo., Dr. Coleridge Monroe and his scarred 16-year-old sister, Whitley, pack up and leave New York City, where no one appreciates Cole's research on germs. In Reidsville, Cole meets Rhyne Abbott, who is gradually transformed from a mountain girl to a city girl as she spends more time with Cole. Goodman has a real flair for writing romantic tension and sexy love scenes, and she also gives ample time to exploring the characters' deeper relationships and longings for revenge and forgiveness. Fans of historical and western romances will also appreciate Goodman's witty dialogue, first-rate narrative prose, and clever plotting. \n
