One broken heart.
One battered soul.
No one said life would be fair or easy.
Quiet, Peruvian-born artist Cassie Lopez learned this the hard way. Betrayed by the man she planned to marry, she shut herself off far away from all but her closest friend from college…
Until the night Luke Denton came crashing into her Colorado mountain sanctuary with a vengeance. Confused by her heart's response to this kind and gentle man, Cassie pushes herself to help the cowboy recover quickly so she can send him on his way. But Luke’s patience and understanding threaten to break down the very defenses she needs to survive in this world.
Search-and-Rescue worker Luke, who lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident, also knows firsthand of the unfairness of life. He keeps his own nightmares at bay by focusing on his rescue activities, most recently adopting and working with abused and neglected horses.
Can two wounded people find trust and love together? Do nightmares end where dreams come true?
Really loved this series. Hoping there is another book with Grant's story.
Passionate, provocative, and riveting!!!
I waited until I had read the entire series before writing a review for the books in this series, and my review of this book will serve as my review of the entire series since it is the last book. I cannot say enough good things about this series. I have been absolutely riveted by it since book one and could not wait for the next book as I finished each one. I was sad to see the series end (unless the author has something in the works that I don't know about), but I couldn't have been happier with the way the story was wrapped up. I have run the gamut of emotions with this series, and have loved every moment of it. The characters in this series, so beautifully flawed and real and true, grabbed onto my heart and soul right from the beginning and just never let go. I love that the author saved Luke and Cassie's story for last. I think these two wounded people needed to see that love can really work out for others before they started to really believe and hope for it for themselves. Luke and Cassie's journey to love is so tragically beautiful. It's not all hearts and flowers, but it is one of understanding and compassion and eventually one of rediscovered passion once thought lost forever. To say I loved this book and the entire series would be a huge understatement. If I could give it infinite stars, I would. This series is so passionate and intriguing and poignant and captivating and provocative and completely enthralling. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a riveting and sexy read.
I've read every book in this saga and have loved every one of them. I just hate that Luke would have to travel back and forth to take care of his horses when there were several times in the book he was exhausted from caring for them when Cassie lived on his ranch. But he is an angel. Can't wait for a continuation of this saga, and would read them even if there were 20 books in all, love a good military story.
