Overview

Laurel Montgomery wanted a new life, one that didn't include a man. She'd had enough of their pretty lies and broken promises but one night of reckless abandon weeks before taking a job as the new schoolteacher in Willow Creek would come back to haunt her. The man she thought to never see again turns out to be the father of one of her new students. A man so handsome and rugged he takes her breath away. Too bad she's sworn off men forever. If only the stubborn man would take no for an answer.

Holden Avery was love-struck the moment he saw Laurel Montgomery and cursed himself for a fool every waking minute since letting her walk out of his life. When she turns up in Willow Creek he's handed the second chance he didn't think he'd ever get but thoughts of pursuing Laurel are cut short when a stranger shows up in town. A man who claims to be Laurel's husband.

The happily ever after Holden thought to finally have is plagued with obstacles but he sets off to prove he's the man Laurel wants. Convincing her to give him a chance is nearly impossible but he's waited too long to find her to give up now. One way or the other, Laurel Montgomery would be his wife.

    more from this reviewer

    Excellent!!! A must read!!

    Ms. Graison is a natural. Her characters are always unique and her stories are always different. One common thread in all of her book is that you will love her characters, even though they are all quite different, and her stories keep you reading. It is hard to put the book down once you start reading. In this book, you are not quite sure whether you like the herion until close to the end when you realize her story then you love her. But you will definitely love Holden from the very beginning . If you have not read the other three Willow Creek books, I would recommend you do so. Especially 'The Outlaw'. That is my personal favorite.

    Well, I¿ve finished another story in this series and I see I¿ve

    Well, I’ve finished another story in this series and I see I’ve only one more to go before the end. I will be sad when it ends as I really have enjoyed this series. This story about Laurel was a humdinger because it reminded me of myself when I was younger, being afraid to go after what I wanted instead of what other people wanted for me, and ending up in some sad places. And I dearly loved Holden, a hero who just wouldn’t give up, no matter what, on the woman he loved. Wow, what a combo!

    Couldn't finish

    ## I couldn't even finish this. It was bad, really bad. The description and the cover were amazing, but don't be fooled. The minute I read in the first chapter how the rancher was at a saloon to hire a whore, I knew this wasn't going to be good. I kept reading for 2 more chapters, but it just got worse. Too bad, the guy on the cover is hot.
