She needed a place to stay. He needed to save his ranch. Together they just might make a home.

Sgt. Dylan Banks lost more than just his leg in the war. His fiancée and family turned their backs on him as well. Now, he's determined to create a safe place where wounded warriors like himself can heal. But a hidden zoning law requires all residents of the Purple Heart Ranch to be married. To save his dream, Dylan and his men will have to tie the knot--but can a man with such deep scars inside and out believe in love again?
Maggie Shaw lost both her job as a veterinary technician and her apartment on the same day. Who knew her unreasonable landlord would kick her out for being four dogs over the one pet limit? Now, she and her gang of special-needs dogs are in trouble. But fate puts her in Dylan's path with a proposal that seems too good to be true--but can her heart bear a loveless marriage of convenience?
Dylan yearns to reach out for Maggie's healing touch, but he keeps his distance, convinced his wounds are too deep for her embrace. Maggie sees past Dylan's injuries, but if she fails to capture his heart they both could lose it all: her beloved animals, his ranch, and each other.
Find out if love can truly heal all wounds in this light-hearted, sweet romance of convenient arrangements that unfold into lasting love. On His Bended Knee is the first in a series of marriage of convenience tales featuring Wounded Warriors who are healed with the power of love.

About the Author

Shanae Johnson was raised by Saturday Morning cartoons and After School Specials. She still doesn’t understand why there isn’t a life lesson that ties the issues of the day together just before bedtime. While she’s still waiting for the meaning of it all, she writes stories to try and figure it all out. Her books are wholesome and sweet, but her are heroes are hot and heroines are full of sass!

And by the way, the E elongates the A. So it’s pronounced Shan-aaaaaaaa. Perfect for a hero to call out across the moors, or up to a balcony, or to blare outside her window on a boombox. If you hear him calling her name, please send him her way!

## 90 pages (the remaining pages were samples). This book is too short. The characters are underdeveloped and the plot extremely rushed. The hero and heroine spend one partial day together, get married the next day, and are in love without getting to know each other. Also, the author took too long setting up the story. The hero and heroine don't meet until page 28. Normally that's not that bad, but when the entire story is only 90 pages, it is. And there's too much time dedicated to describing the dogs and their injuries. Instead, that page time could've been better used letting the h/h spend time together. Sorry, can't recommend.

On His Bended Knee is the first installment from The Brides of Purple Heart Ranch. I thought it was a great read and I look forward to book two. I give this one four stars. I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Can two broken souls heal each other while trying to save a magically place? Can Dylan, ex-army without a leg after a very serious injury while in duty, and Maggie, vet technician, without a job, family or home, have a future together even with a convenience’s marriage? A sweet love story.

This clean, sweet and touching story is the start of the new series titled The Brides of Purple Heart Ranch. A ranch for veterans that have been injured physically, mentally and emotionally. A place for healing, that is safe and peaceful. .It’s a story that at times is heartbreaking but also heartwarming and thought provoking. A reminder that as a society we need to do more for the brave men and women who are willing sacrifice themselves for us in the name of freedom. Both Dylan Banks, the owner and founder of the ranch and Maggie Shaw, the veterinary technician, have huge hearts . But those hearts have also suffered a great deal. You’ll enjoy not only watching these two interact, but also meeting the rest of the group living at the ranch. Looking forward to more books in this series. I was entrusted a copy of this book by LitRing . The opinions expressed are solely my own.
