Overview

A woman full of dreams
When a stranger arrives in town on a vintage motorcycle, Jill Carpenter has no idea her life is about to change. She never expected her own personal knight in shining armor would be an incredibly charming and handsome Southerner—but one with a deep secret.

A man outrunning a tragedy
When Chase Preston jumped on his motorcycle to escape, he didn't expect the perfect woman to fall into his arms ... literally! Though he can't deny his feelings for the sweet and beautiful Jill, he doesn't see how he and his mistake-filled past will fit into her bright future.

Falling in love may require more than either can give
The longer Chase stays in Kennison Falls, the more deeply Jill and the people of her community pull him in. As Jill discovers Chase's heroic qualities, she wants to find a home in his arms—if only he'll trust her. But will the truth tear them apart when Chase's past returns to haunt him? Or can they get beyond dreams to gain the love that will rescue their two hearts?

## I can sum up this book in one word: BORING. I'm over half way through and I'm afraid I'm not going to make it. I can't finish it. Everything is too drawn out. Pages describing a bird or a garden....too much unnecessary information. More importantly, this hero and heroine have no chemistry. That's a must for me, in any romance. The way this hero speaks, I was thinking he was in his early twenties. When the story revealed that he was 38, I was stunned. Then, constantly blowing hot and cold. Ugh. "We can only be friends". Yet he continuously holds her hand, touches her, kisses her head, etc. It was beyond frustrating. He won't talk about his past. After 6 weeks, she doesn't even know he's a doctor. This is one story where the guy should not get the girl. Don't bother with this one.

I do not read romances, normally but I made an exception for this one. I enjoyed it very much, the writing is clean and fresh and the story flows very well. Read it- you'll enjoy it.

Sweet short romance. The book is a little slow moving at times but overall a cute story.

Enjoyable characters, well written. The author should hire new proofreaders, as the book is very poorly editted.

Fascinating Characters, Great Read In Rescued by a Stranger, Lizbeth Selvig takes us back to Kennison Falls, where the Minnesota farm town is rebuilding after a tornado. But it appears other storms are brewing. While a construction company heads up local repairs, plans also are afoot for a gravel quarry, a project that could hold negative consequences for a nearby state park. Onto the scene rides Chase Preston on his vintage motorcycle. A man with a past, he’s on the emotional lam from tragic circumstances in Memphis. Life changes when he rescues Jill Carpenter from an ill-timed encounter with a stray dog and a resulting drive into a ditch. As a talented rider, the lure of being an Olympic equestrian is at odds with Jill’s commitment to vet school. Add an uppity teen suffering from terminal boredom, a cranky old farmer whose stubbornness is coupled with wisdom and steadfastness, and a physical therapist with an unrelenting eye for hunky males. And while corporate treachery threatens a close-knit community, the secret of Chase’s personal pain puts romance in jeopardy. In this sequel to The Rancher and the Rock Star, compassion and redemption alter lives. Dreams change. Can Jill give up one dream for a better dream?
