A young widow nursing the wounds of her past…
A cowboy with demons of his own…
Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again.
Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she’s living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow’s. And Carissa’s daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.
Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?

This is the 3rd book in the Land of the Lone Star series. Normally I read a series in order however I have not read the other two books in this series. I did not feel too lost in the storyline and enjoyed reading this installment. The characters are well formed and relate-able. Peterson does a wonderful job of transporting you back in time and putting you right in the story. I look forward to reading the other books in this series and other books by Peterson.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book for review purposes only through Litfuse Publicity Group. I was not compensated to write a positive or favorable review. This is Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s personal opinion.
