Overview

This is a classic Beauty and the Beast tale, the story of a disfigured war hero whose hurts are healed by the beautiful young woman who can look past his wounds to see the true worth of the man within.

Beauty … Amanda Liscomb was tired of being pursued for her looks. Could none of the men in Cactus Bend see beyond the loveliness of her face and figure to the real person inside? But then a stranger came to town, a man who seemed to strip away all her defenses, to lay bare her lonely heart.

And the Beast … War had left Broc Kinkaid with a ruined face; a judge’s sentence had left him with an impossible mission. He rode into the Lazy T knowing he would be reviled for his disfigurement, hated for the debt he’d come to collect. Yet in Amanda he found a woman whose soul seemed the other half of his, a lover who would heal his hearts and soften his hard edges. With one taste of her sweet lips he understood that all things are possible … When Love Comes

    more from this reviewer

    This is a super extremely complicated western romance

    Broc Kincaid's face was scarred during the Civil War. By 1869 he remains extremely sensitive about his visage so when moronic Felix Yant tauntingly comments, an irate Broc batters the man. The Texas judge warns him about losing his temper, but commends him for paying the doctor bills so that Yant's wife and two kids did not have to suffer; still he sentences him to collect a debt. That will wipe clean the record or spend time in jail

    Broc agrees to go to Cactus bend to collect what rancher Aaron Liscomb owes. He arrives at the Lazy T ranch to find the man dead. His wife Amanda runs the spread with the help of her three young children Eddie, Gary and Amanda. None of the four family members know anything about a debt. Broc assumes they lie, but decides to learn the truth. He obtains work on the ranch, but as he falls in love with the widow and her three kids, he also realizes they are honest; which means the judge or someone else is using him to pull a scam.

    This is a super extremely complicated western romance that feels in some ways like an amateur sleuth as the hero struggles to learn the truth starting with going undercover. The romantic subplot takes a somewhat back seat to Broc's investigation, but fits perfectly as he begins to wonder if love taints his perspective. Leigh Greenwood affirms why he is one of the sub-genre's top guns with his latest historical.

    Lacks dimension

    RT rated WHEN LOVE COMES with 4 stars. It's a fast-paced story with a likable H & H, and a quirking little brother named Eddie, who is the most memorable character in the story. However, the author depends mostly on the dialogue to get a character's emotions across to the reader. The story tells more about how a character feels than it shows. There's little to no description of the different kinds of eye contact. (Tom Cruise finds this element of acting as very important to conveying emotion. I would imagine most actors do.) I read little to no heart pounding. No knotted stomachs. No gasps of surprise or gulps in horror or sweating from fear. No sighs of relief or frustration. Little to no physical reactions a person experiences when faced with all kinds of emotions and situations, romantic or otherwise. And paragraphs and pages after the fact is too late. Western Romances are known for the inward and outward display of emotion. This story lacks that important dimension. It's also short on colorful similes and metaphors most historicals are famous for. At times I was confused at who was speaking due to the lack of simple tags sometimes needed to keep characters' speech straight. I found a few holes in the plot that if the hero would've in the beginning simply asked the judge why and who the heroine's family owed this debt to he was being sent to collect, the hero would've gone to the her with the proper information, instead of dragging out a thin mystery halfway or more through the story unnecessarily. The sensuality in this story was rated as hot. The love scene did have a fair amount of emotion. But it was far from hot. If you're a Leigh Greenwood fan, and have always been happy with the lack of emotion or creativity, you should like this story, too.
