Product description

Product Description

It took oil baron Lorne Grady two weeks to fall in love with the beautifully plush art therapist hired to coax his special needs sister out of the dark cocoon she has been wrapped in for months.

It will probably take him the rest of his life to admit it. And surely hell will freeze over before Heather Meddaugh risks her heart with him again. 

But he wouldn’t be Texas born and bred if he didn’t try to rope her back into his bed for one last chance at claiming the woman he loves.

This book made me happy, be sad, cry, and then be happy again. It was heart-rending (if that is a word). The story isn't just between the hero and heroine, it also closely involves the hero's family. They have a genetic disease that affects each of them differently. The hero's sister is the most affected. At the start of the book, the heroine comes to their home as a live-in therapist for the sister, who has withdrawn from interacting with the world. The heroine is able to get her attention as no one else has in recent months. The hero is afraid to trust her, to trust that she will stay and help his sister, that she can do any more to help. In fact, the hero is pretty withdrawn from everything, too.
There is an attraction between them, but he keeps sabotaging any chance for a relationship.
The heroine has been working with elderly stroke victims before, so she was hoping for a chance to work with someone who wouldn't ultimately die. She really needs a chance for happiness, but isn't getting it with the constant conflict with the hero.
Ultimately, she takes strong action to save her heart, while still helping the sister. The hero's loneliness, as well as input from his mother and sister, makes him finally take a chance on opening up. Thankfully, we get a happy ever after.
The writing is so emotionally evocative that I was totally drawn in to the story. The characters were each able to draw me to like them in their own way. I strongly recommend this book.

By RitaSV - Published on Amazon.com

I've been mulling how to write this review since I put down the book. Ultimately I really liked it but Lorne and Heather do not have an easy path to love. Pain and grief and fear have hobbled Lorne's family as they deal with a serious genetic disease and while Heather, a therapist, comes to help Lorne's little sister Maureen, it is really Lorne who is the most damaged. That damage almost continuously manifests itself in cruelty towards Heather. That was extremely hard to take and I struggled to care about Lorne until fairly deep into the story but Heather was a total class act. She responded to his barbs with maturity and grace never stooping to his level. If you're emotionally in a place where you can walk through a darker plot with the promise of an HEA then I think you'll enjoy this book. A side note is that the story is not written in the first person so you are able to get inside both the hero and heroine's heads which I particularly like as it makes a story much richer for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Cranes 31 July 2015
By J. R. Ratcliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Absolutely gorgeous story - don't start reading at night if you have to get up early and make sure that you have a box of tissues.

Heather Meddaugh is an artist turned art therapist. Maureen Grady(aka Mo) is her new patient who has Fragile X syndrome and autism. Lorne Grady is the older and overprotective brother. You will also meet and come to love their mother Dotty and her maid/helper /companion Nora plus several other regulars.

Heather uses origami as her art medium to help her patients. Lorne is a Texas oilman. He is worried about his little sister being hurt because she is so vulnerable. He also appears upset that he is attracted to Heather.

To me, this is a marvelous character study. I really loved this book, even though there were times that I had to set the book down and play a few hands of solitaire! Seriously, I got so upset with Lorne and felt so in tune with Heather that I had to take a break from the story. I also had to keep chanting to myself "Christa Wick writes HEA stories".

Heather's interactions with Maureen are beautiful. She tells Mo when she makes a lotus flower at their first meeting "It's yours, you can touch what's yours." The way that it is set up makes it a beautiful scene.

So! Get your tissues, remember the chant and get ready for an awesome read. You know me - no spoilers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Story 27 July 2015
By Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Paper Wings is a heart-wrenching story of hard won love. This book covers a range of emotions. I cried (a lot!), I laughed, and my heart was warmed by the fantastic characters and their story. I've been a fan of Christa Wick for a while, and this may be my favorite story by her. I'm so glad I decided to purchase this wonderfully written book!

I gave this book of 3 and don't get me wrong I love Christa Wick. The main characters are Loren and Heather, and what I hated in this book is Lauren treated Heather like crap the entire story until the last couple of chapters and she just took him back as if nothing ever happened in real life we all know we would have given this man harder time to get back into her good graces then Heather did in this book. He treated Heather badly the entire read except for the last chapter she still took him back without any resistance. I'm sorry but for as for me it would take me a little bit more time to lick my wounds than that. I wish Heather had a little bit more self worth then what I saw written about her in this book. Where are the romance novels where men actually fought for the love and attention of the woman they say they want and desire above all.
