    An engaging western romance! Ms. Jewkes has keen knowledge of ranching, horses, and the environment of the New Mexico Territory, which is deftly woven into the love story of her heroine and hero, Kara and Hawke. I won't reprise the plot and characters here (other reviewers have done that in fine fashion), but I will say the novel is a page turner and well written, with engaging dialogue, evocative narrative, and highly sensual love scenes. I recommend this novel for anyone who loves the Old West, spunky heroines, tall, dark and handsome Scottish lords, compelling danger and conflict, and a heartfelt "happily ever after."

    As free and independent as the West she loves, Kara Jonston figh

    As free and independent as the West she loves, Kara Jonston fights her growing feelings for the Scottish lord, Hawke, aka Lord Stoneham. Resentful of him because he is buying half of her father's ranch, Kara is determined to demonize him, but instead is won over by Hawke's kindness, courage and caring. With the untamed Western desert as the backdrop, their passion sizzles like the desert sun. Filled with intrigue, plot twists and vivid description, The Heart You Own is a delightful read.

    If there is one thing for certain Kara Jonston knows, is how to

    If there is one thing for certain Kara Jonston knows, is how to run the ranch she has lived on all of her life. She is as capable as any man, including the Scottish Lord coming to see how his investment is doing. Lord Stoneham, Hawke Pryce, is now part owner of the Ladder J Ranch and he's a shrewd businessman with an ulterior motive, as he inspects his new investment and falls in love with the raw, untamed west.

    It's cowgirl vs kilt for awhile, as Kara and Hawke fight their growing attraction in this very well written historical from author Diane Jewkes. This story captivated me from the beginning with its fiesty heroine and beautiful descriptions of the untamed New Mexico Territory. You'll feel yourself riding the range along side the great cast of characters who add to the many facets of this story.

    I was able to read an advanced copy of The Heart You Own and I'm so glad I did! I love Regency set historical romances, and plopping a Scottish lord down in the New Mexico Territory was brilliance, I think. All of the yummy, Alpha tendencies of lords of that time are plain to see; added to that is the feistiness of Kara, who isn't about to be a prim-and-proper lady. Not when there is a ranch to run! Historical readers will enjoy this debut from Diane R. Jewkes.

    Scottish Highlands/Wild West Mash-up

    In The Heart You Own, by Diane Jewkes, the Wild West meets the Scottish Highlands in a clash of heart-stopping passion. In this truly unique historical novel, Kara and Hawke will steal your hearts. Kara is one of the strongest, most likable heroines I’ve ever read, and the ending is so much sweeter because she is able to set aside something she has lived her whole life to achieve in order to create a life better than the one she had imagined for herself. With a wide array of multi-dimensional characters, from hunky Scottish lords to a meddling Spanish cook, The Heart You Own will keep you turning pages long into the night.
