Heat Level: Hot
Imprint: Avon Books
Spring Lee likes her simple life that she created for herself in Wyoming. She tends to her ranch and stay to herself. She doesn’t have the desire to be with a man or have babies like society dictates for a woman. She stumbles across an injured man in a snowstorm and her life suddenly changes.
Garrett is in town to interview Dr. Colton Lee for his newspaper but he gets more than he bargains for with Spring Lee. He knows that she is something special from their very first encounter. He just has to convince her of that.
I had a slow burn liking for Spring. She has been through so much in her short life. She had to fight for the life she wanted. I like that buried beneath her rough exterior there was a woman who wanted to be loved and accepted for who she really was. I think that Garrett saw her from the beginning. She is just not warm and fuzzy which is understandable so it takes time to get to love her.
While I did enjoy the book the heat between Garrett and Spring fell a bit flat for me. Garrett is instantly fascinated and in love with Spring which I didn’t mind but the connection always felt a bit force. I kept waiting for her to warm up but when she did, it is a little too late for my taste.
I always love the historical details that the author adds to all of her stories. I found it fascinating that Garrett was a part of the Union Navy and end up studying law. I’m always left wanting to do further research after reading one of Ms. Jenkins’s books. She takes her time to educate her readers which I do appreciate.
This is a standalone romance but readers will enjoy it more if they read previous books in the series and The Old West series. Old characters show up and obviously Spring’s brother has his own book as well.
