now and forever


Saddle up for romance and adventure with the Wilde sisters!

Shannon Wilde is the middle sister–and the one who loves animals. She’s established her own homestead and is raising sheep for their wool. Things are going fine…until Shannon gets swept over a cliff by Matthew Tucker!

Tucker seizes every opportunity to get away from civilization, but one particular walk in the woods ends with him sprinting away from an angry grizzly and plunging into a raging river, accidentally taking Shannon Wilde with him. Their adventure in the wilderness results in the solitary mountain man finding himself hitched to a young woman with a passel of relatives, a homestead, and a flock of sheep to care for.

As Tucker and Shannon learn to live with each other, strange things begin to happen on Shannon’s land. Someone clearly wants to drive her off, but whoever it is apparently didn’t count on Tucker. Trying to scare Matthew Tucker just makes him mad–and trying to hurt the woman he’s falling in love with sets off something even he never expected.

My thoughts:

I loved the first book in this series and couldn’t wait to read this one. The story of these sisters grabbed me.

I love the setting of this book. The action-packed beginning is sure to have you biting your nails. I liked Shannon’s heart, her spunk and her love for her animals.

But overall I was a bit disappoint with this one. I just couldn’t really connect with the story. I felt like the first scene dragged on a little too long. Then we went from Matt Tucker thinking he would never marry anyone to pretty much convincing Shannon to marry him. It all happened a bit fast.

However, if you don’t like kissing scene described too intently you will like that part. It is quick and sweet.

It was nice to meet up with the characters from the first book and see how Kylie and Aaron were doing. And I will probably read the third book and see how that one is when it comes out.

As always, this is my opinion only and if this sounds like a book you want to pick up then give a try.
