Product Description

Product Description

Sam Mackenzie rode into the town of Hidden Springs looking for a place to belong. He takes a job at Ryan’s Ranch and is immediately attracted to the ranch’s pretty, female, owner.

Kate Ryan is a woman determined to make it on her own. Chafing at the thought of having to hire help, she nonetheless falls for the handsome stranger who answers her ad.

When they meet, sparks fly and they are drawn to each other. But life in 1867 Arizona Territory isn’t easy. When a secret from Kate’s past comes to light, they are each faced with the challenge of making a difficult decision.

Will they turn and run or are they here to stay?

*** This story contains sex and violence, including violence against women. May not be suitable for all readers. ***

1.0 out of 5 stars could have been so much more 24 June 2014
By Mazama maven - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Historical novels with strong female leading characters are compelling to me, so I thought I'd give this one a chance. The book started out well. A woman with a mystery in her past makes friends in a new town, starts a business and begins to have feelings for one of her employees. Then things went downhill.
I don't care for graphic sex scenes in the novels I read, and there were several here, but I could have forgiven them if they had been congruent with the characters. However, the scenes in this book were not.
MAJOR SPOILER ALERT: when a character has endured rape, and then her first encounter with her former fiancé is incredibly rough sex, followed by him storming off, this is not only out of character, but is downright abusive and sickening. (Especially if she still moons about him and wonders if he will ever love her....sick) I started the book with a great sense of expectation and finished it with nausea and loathing. Skip this one unless the above scenario appeals to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully emotional! 20 November 2013

Format: Kindle Edition
Emotionally wonderful! While reading the book I laughed and cried. I love the way this book is written you know what everyone is doing and thinking. Except the seamstress! But since other books are coming from Hidden springs my guess is we will find out what her story is someday.

Great sex scenes! You can almost feel what they feel. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful historical novel 20 November 2013
By MizS - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Beautiful historical debut novel! It's been a while since I read a historical novel but I'm really glad I read this one because it's beautiful written and I really enjoyed reading it. Loved Kate and Sam and all the secondary characters in this story.
If you want to read a historical novel I would reccomend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! 11 December 2013
By MarieClem68 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic, from its western day settings to the characters it portrays. It tells a meaningful story of two lost souls who find each other, but due to traumas from the past, put a wedge into the relationship.

This story is written and told beautifully, it describes the young American country side beautifully with the dust to the delightful mountains. Horses, towns and people are all beautiful and totally imaginable.

I love this story, its setting and its characters. Kristine Raymond has captured it all beautifully and without falter.

Here to Stay
By: Kristine Raymond
I was a bit hesitant when asked to read this book since I had never read a historical romance. I had no idea what to expect or what I was missing out on.. Kristen Raymond hit this one out of the ballpark when it comes to a 5 star book. She made you feel as if you stepped into another time and another life. The story of Kate and Sam was everything one would want in a story where there is tragedy, heartbreak and finding love.. It is a must read.. And I look forward to her next book
