Very good, very emotional story. Quinn has been released from prison after new evidence proves him innocent of the charges. His cousins have offered him a job on their ranch, training horses for them. It gives him a chance to rebuild his life. He also discovered that his former girlfriend had been pregnant and never told him. He is trying to find her, determined to be a father to his little girl. While waiting, he meets Summer and her autistic son, Teddy. Summer is a single mother with her hands full. Teddy is severely autistic and a participant in the ranch's equine therapy program. She is surprised by how quickly Teddy connects with Quinn - and he isn't the only one! She's been cautious about new relationships, but something about Quinn tells her she can trust him. I really enjoyed seeing the relationship grow between them. Both of them are wary, having been hurt before, but the connection between them can't be denied. Because of what he has been through, Quinn has become much more patient, which becomes obvious in his dealings with Teddy. I loved seeing his patience and mellow demeanor have a calming effect on the little boy. His obvious care for Teddy was also one of the things that made Summer fall for him. At the same time, Summer sees past the ex-con label that Quinn is stuck with to the man he really is. She sees the tender and sensitive side that others do not, which helps Quinn believe that a future is possible for them. My heart ached for them both, but especially Quinn, when his past comes back to bite him. It underscored the difficulty that people like him have when they resume life on the outside. I was really disgusted with Summer's ex and his attitude, and loved his new wife's actions. He also had the whole situation with his daughter and her mother to deal with. I didn't care for Jenny at all, with the way she flip-flopped back and forth. I really understood Quinn's desire just to chuck it all, even though he hated the idea of leaving Summer and Teddy. I loved the support he received from his cousins throughout the whole story. I really liked the way that they stood with him during his problems with the parents. Best of all was how they found a way for him to have everything work out for the best possible outcome. *copy received in exchange for honest review

This is a wonderfully emotional novel. McDavid tackles some very tough subjects, bringing them to life in such a magnificent manner. The intricately woven plot never stops, allowing readers full access to the heart stopping romance that develops throughout. Picturesque descriptions paint this world for readers, allowing for full access to a wonderfully complex world. My heart broke for both Summer and Quinn, both for their individual trials and for the hardships facing them together. At the same time, I absolutely loved Quinn’s outlook on certain things. He had a way of seeing what was going on under the surface, and the way that he dealt with Summer’s son absolutely melted my heart. These two characters come to life in such a magnificent way that they will have a place in my heart for a long, long while. McDavid lights this ranch up with romance and lives well worth living. This novel is the best and most captivating of the series and a must read for all lovers of western romance. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, what a great book! Thought provoking too. The trials of an ex-con who has been exonerated and shouldn't have been incarcerated; the hardships of lone parents dealing with autistic (special needs) children and fathers who have been denied knowledge, let alone access to their children and have to fight to get to know them. All wrapped up with a loving family and a budding romance between two very special people. This was my favourite, of the books I have read so far, by Cathy McDavid. I received a free copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review.
