Overview

Forever a Hero: A Western Romance Novel by Linda Lael Miller

For the youngest Carson brother, finding—and fixing—trouble seems to be all in a day's work

Mace Carson doesn't consider himself a hero. Back in college, he came upon a woman in trouble and intervened—but he was just one irate Wyoming cowboy with his boots planted firmly on the side of right. Now a successful vintner, Mace is shocked to be reunited with the woman he saved. But it turns out she's in Wyoming on business…a corporate executive representing the company that wants to buy his winery. Only, he's not selling.

Kelly Wright has never forgotten that horrible night ten years ago when Mace came to her rescue, has never forgotten him. The surprising success of a winery in the middle of ranch country has brought her to Mustang Creek, and she's secretly thrilled to discover Mace at the helm. Reluctant to mix business with pleasure, Kelly vows to keep things professional, until her attacker is released from prison and comes for vengeance…against both of them.

Hooked right from the start ,forget all household chores for a few days. I just read,the story moved easily ,characters well developed. Loved meeting the characters from the other books and catching up on their lives. Being an incurable romantic Kelly and Mace's love story was neatly done ,2 strong independent people taking a chance on love. I was so sorry the story had to end. Can't wait for Linda's next book. Beautifully done .

There’s nothing like a hero saving the day to start a story in the right direction and author Linda Lael Miller does that perfectly in her latest release. Miller’s characters are realistic and down-to-earth, while also having some hero-like qualities we all wish for from time-to-time. The interaction between the characters adds depth to the story and draws you further in. With an eye for detail and rich descriptions, the Mustang Creek comes alive on the page. The setting is perfect and Miller makes the reader feel they are in the middle of the action throughout the story. FOREVER A HERO has bits of suspense and mystery blended with romance for a well-balanced story. The main two characters being opposites adds a bit of intrigue to the mix. This is a delightful story that can be read on its own or in order with the other books in the series. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

This was my favorite book out of the Carsons of Mustang Creek series, I did not want to put it down. I love the character Mace especially, his outlook on life, and his sense of humor. To me it is the sign of good writing when I feel emotions toward a character in a book. I didn't like Kelly at some points because of her attitude toward convincing Mace he needed to sell his winery and wanted Mace to send her on her way. When a writer can create emotions in their readers that is a gift in my opinion. Linda Lael Miller has a great gift for writing. I am glad for the day I picked up one of her books from the local library and was immediately hooked. I have read all that she has written so far and always look forward the next one.

Kelly and Mace have a history, one they have both never forgotten, and now they have a present and a future. I enjoyed seeing them circle around each other and try to figure out where their friendship/relationship would head. There wasn’t really any doubt as to how or where it would go for me but it was fun to see them reconnect. The story is about Mace and Kelly discovering their feelings for each other and working toward their happy ending. Yet, the real story is the family. Both characters have a wonderful supporting family. Mace’s brothers manage to share all his embarrassing stories while growing up and still show him the support and love he needs to figure out what he needs for his future with Kelly. Kelly’s sisters do the same when Mace meets them. The family love is one of my most favorite things about Forever a Hero. The Carsons of Mustang Creek is a series but each book can be read all alone. I recommend checking them all out.

Sometimes the characters in a book series can become your friends, and they feel so familiar and comfortable like your own family. And when a new installments come out in a series like that, it feels like you are going, if not home, then visit with dear friends. So let me tell you about the visit I had in the Mustang Creek and about the friends who lives there... The Carson family is a delight to be around. The brothers with their quick wit and constant banter are fun and entertaining. They might rip each other as often as possible, but they also look out for each other and would do absolutely anything to help the others if needed. They love and respect their mom fiercely, and Harry, the cook is like a beloved aunt, Red the foreman of the ranch, like a father figure to all of them since their lost their own father years ago. There is love in the air that is palpable, and their unconventional family opens their hearts, minds, and arms to any of its members to embrace them and share their lives with them. Yes, there's such warm and fuzzy feelings around the ranch, mixed with family values, honesty, dignity, and respect. Who doesn't enjoy to hang around folks like that?! Mace Carson, the youngest son, the wine expert who seems to take nothing seriously, who has a big caring, protective heart, is sexy as all get out, and a kind and sweet man. There's absolutely nothing to dislike him about. He can take charge, yet is considerate to others. He jokes around to keep things light but has big shoulders to cry on if needed and willing to talk seriously when called for. He doesn't like to be seen as a hero, but would rather meet you as an equal, face to face, on the same level. A man to swoon after! Kelly Wright is a workaholic, who has passion and drive, loves to make deals, and goes after what she wants. The drama from a decade ago shadows her mind, the role Mace had in it, saving her, still makes her look at him with awe. Her marriage left her skeptical about lasting love and kept promises, doubting herself as a partner in a relationship. The feelings between her and Mace are so easy to come by, so comfortable, so intimate she wonders if they are to be trusted. The attraction between Kelly and Mace is palpable. They have the chemistry, they have the connection, it is beautiful and filled with fire from the passion they have for each other. The doubts and fears in Kelly's mind giving their relationship the waves, the pull and push go on maybe a bit too long. I loved the slow pace of the story, it really gave me the time and an opportunity to enjoy each moment with the characters, and get a good look of their lives. The family connection, the friends in town, the romance, even the bit of a danger that arises from the tale, it all wrapped itself around my mind and played the scenes like on a movie screen. There's so much adoration, admiration, and all the good things still left in this world present and counted for in the tale, it left me smiling and sighing with a hopeful mind. A lovely, delightful tale with smooth, flowing writing set in a gorgeous scenery that might make you want to cork a bottle of wine and take a moment to enjoy the life. Cheers to the Carson family, I have enjoyed getting to know y'all! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Linda Lael Miller revisits the Carsons of Mustang Creek, this time focusing on the youngest Carson brother: Mace. In Forever a Hero, Kelly Wright is on a mission to persuade vintner Mace to sell his small but successful winery to Great Grapes International. Despite their former acquaintance, Kelly the maiden in distress and Mace her knight in shining armor, Kelly is determined not to mix pleasure with business. I love western romances and Forever a Hero is one of the best I've read so far. The story takes off after Mace saves Kelly from an unfortunate accident, yet again. The tension between the two characters is palpable as they try to figure out how to proceed. Mace is determined not to sell, but he's willing to keep Kelly around to explore their personal connection. Mace and Kelly are two intellectuals with a passion for wine. While Mace focuses on perfecting the taste and tone of each of his wines, Kelly is the marketing guru. She knows just the right words to use to convince others of her ideas. The two are an obvious match and its fun to see them come around to the same conclusion. A bit of suspense is thrown into the mix of this storyline when Kelly's attacker is released from a ten year stint in jail. The big question is whether or not he's willing to risk going back to jail for the sake of getting revenge. This part of the plot rounds the story out a bit, but I actually would have liked to see it expanded upon. This character was mostly a shadow that caused Kelly and Mace to watch their backs, and it didn't make a strong impact until the end of the novel. Even then it was over and done with in a matter of paragraphs. The plot is fast paced but leaves enough time for readers to experience the fresh Wyoming landscape. I even feel like I went to the Mountain Winery vineyard myself and walked among the rows and rows of growing grapes. Linda Lael Miller has a way of writing characters who are so in tune with their surroundings that their stories feel authentic. Their desires and goals are so believable and realistic which adds a rich layer of drama when plans don't work out quite in the way they expected. Fans of the Carson brothers will revel in this latest installment, and readers unfamiliar will be itching to visit Mustang Creek! *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*
