Blurb: A lifetime of polite indifference is all Julianne Spencer sees when she envisions a future with her current suitor, Mr. Terrel Lee Parker. She is looking for someone more passionate, more heroic, who can love her for who she really is, and not the proper young lady she pretends to be. Her future seems hopeless until Christmas Eve, when fate drops a wounded outlaw at her door and she comes to realize true heroes can be found inside even ordinary men.
Review: Though during a few spots Julianne comes across as a totally spoiled child, I really came to understand her character and feel what is was she experienced as the story rolled on. Terrel was the type of man in the beginning that you could see as the shy giant, but boy does he give a surprise :)
A captivating sensual read that will leave you with happy thoughts and a smile on your face. I always have loved a good story where the couple starts off thinking it will never work only to have them rise to the occasion and totally knock the other one on their duff.
I will certainly be looking for more from this author in the future. She really has a knack for historical western stories :)
