Noah Partridge had a cold, cold heart. The darkly handsome man had suffered the loss of his family and livelihood, and been betrayed by his sweetheart and friends. So he set out alone on horseback to stake a claim in the wind-whipped New Mexico Territory, where he would live out his days on a land as rough and barren as his own soul.

Honey-haired Grace

Overview

Noah Partridge had a cold, cold heart. The darkly handsome man had suffered the loss of his family and livelihood, and been betrayed by his sweetheart and friends. So he set out alone on horseback to stake a claim in the wind-whipped New Mexico Territory, where he would live out his days on a land as rough and barren as his own soul.

Honey-haired Grace Richardson had heart to spare. Despite her husband's death, she and her young daughter had hung on to life in the Southwestern desert, as well as to a piece of land just outside the settlement of Rio Hondo. Although she did not live on it, Grace clung to that land like a memory, unwilling to give it up even to Noah Partridge, who was determined to buy it out from under her. But something like magic was at work in this desert land of mesquite and red rock: a magic that made Noah wonder if it was Grace's land he lusted after, or the sweetness of her body and soul. For he longed to feel her hands stroke his muscled chest, and to believe that her touch held the warmth that would melt his icy heart.

Noah Partridge is a man with a heart so scarred that a flicker of happiness or the slightest sign that he might care about someone other than himself is an utterly dismaying event. Yet, when he meets a small family living in Rio Hondo, against his will, his stony heart begins to crack. Grace and Maddie Richardson are simply so good that he can not help but begin to care about them. Maddie is a little girl whose life has already been too hard, but she seems to find joy in the oddest moments. She sees the best in him, good Noah didn't suspect was in himself. As for her mother, Grace seems to embody her name, offering exactly what Noah needs, and paradoxically fears. There is one more member of this unusual group Mac, Alexander McMurdo. This elfish eldster has a way of knowing things that he has no way to know. He has magic too. Whether it is Mac's enchantment and insight that brings Noah and Grace together, Maddie's dreams, or something far older guiding both forces to push these two reluctant, needy people together, as long as it ends happily, does it matter? ............. This heartwarming story taps into what Christmas means, love and grace to the lost hearts. When you've had a hard day shopping and being beat up by life, then this will be an anodyne to your soul.
