Back home on her family's Texas Longhorn ranch, Grace Murray is busy preparing for her wedding. After a scruffy tattooed drifter saves her life, she takes on the mission of helping her savior, Heath Carter, find peace. The steady friendship and unconditional acceptance she receives from him encourage her to trade an old dream for a new one—a dream true to her heart. When she calls off her wedding, Grace is finally set free to fully love Heath.
After a decade of military service, Special Forces veteran Heath Carter is living with war's tragic consequences. Struggling with PTSD, anger, and guilt, he travels through Texas, solitarily moving from job to job. Working with Grace on the ranch, Heath's guilt over his past actions make him feel unworthy of her love. As their paths lead them in different directions, Heath needs to discover the courage to fight his toughest battle yet—the one inside himself.
|I found this to be a very good book about one Grace Murray who has come home to her family ranch to prepare for her wedding. Before everything gets started for the big event Grace falls into the river and is rescued by Heath Carter. Heath is dealing with his own PTSD issues after years of service and time with Special Forces. Heath agrees to stay and work the ranch until the wedding since he has nowhere to go. Grace begins to enjoy her time back home and away from the big city. She feels at home on the ranch. Grace and Heath get along exploring the ranch and she enjoys teaching Heath how to ride. The more you get into this story you find Grace questioning whether she wants to marry and though she finds herself attracted to Heath and he to her Heath knows before anything he must begin to work on his PTSD. This is a good story with many little stories inside of it. The characters are good and the author brings you along slowly building you up to the end. A very good book.
