TWO OF HEARTS                                   CHRISTINA LEE

Two of HeartsA gripping standalone adult contemporary romance about finding yourself while taking a second chance at your first love…

Dakota Nakos was always the resilient, strong-willed achiever. But when her father dies and she’s entrusted with the family’s casino, she feels vulnerable, scared, and more than a little emotional —not exactly the best time to see an old lover she’s never really gotten over.

Dakota once meant the world to Shane Garrity. Then suddenly he left town to train as a U.S. Marshal, and their love for each other crashed into a memory. Now he’s come home for her father’s funeral, and one look at the girl he left behind stirs up both memories and regrets, and reignites a fire he feared he’d lost forever.

Dakota may be the same driven girl she always was, but she’s also changed in ways neither could have anticipated. She’s not just a young woman searching for own identity in the Native American community in which she was raised, but one questioning her new life outside her father’s shadow. Above all she wonders if Shane can push past her weakened defenses to rekindle what they once had, or whether the intense blaze between them will ultimately reduce her heart to ashes.

This book opens up at a funeral of a man who is a Native American and is the owner of an Indian casino, now he has turned the operation over to his wife and daughter. His daughter Dakota is wondering if she has learned everything from her father but knows she has her mother’s help and support. At the funeral she sees the one man that at one time was the love of her life or she thought she did, Shane. They grew up together and when he was younger worked for her father at the casino. He is now a U.S.Marshall, and his father is still the chief of police in the local town but does not have any authority on Native American land. He is still good friends with her brother and when her mother sees him she invites him to the house. This causes Dakota to deal with feelings that she thought she took care of look ago when they were in college together. Once together and talking they both realize there is still something there but she is really doing everything to push it aside, while he decides to investigate the death of her father. When an attempt is made on her life he decides to stay on longer and start driving her and her mother to meetings they have with the council on whether they will keep the casino or not. He also find out that a big company was trying to come in and buy Indian land for a casino but her father and her uncle were against it because the land was scared burial ground. Dakota, and Shane start spending more time together and she finds that like him she is a little jealous when a women comes up to him and starts to flirt even though he does nothing it still bothers her. Finally they have it out from when they broke up years before and he finds out that her father was murdered. The book does not end there because he has to go back to Washington to put in a report and find his next post and will Dakota stay or follow him. You have to read the book. A good story. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 4 stars.
