When a storm is brewing, taking shelter could be the most dangerous move of all.
One careless, public sign of affection cost Daniel Pierce’s lover his life at the hands of a hate-filled mob. Grief-stricken, Daniel retreated from society to a sheep farm in the wilds of the north. Years later, Gregory Tobin erupts into his solitary life.
Sent to confirm the existence—or the death—of the Pierce family’s lost heir, Tobin isn’t sure he’s found the right man. The gruff, shaggy hermit calling himself Jacob Bennet bears little resemblance to photographs of the younger Pierce. Tobin needs more time to study his quarry.
With lambing season in full swing, Daniel grudgingly admits he could use an extra hand. Through a long, exhausting night, they parry back and forth as Tobin probes closer and closer to the truth. And something beyond casual attraction simmers between them.
They come together in a crash of desire, but ultimately Daniel must overcome the terrors of the past to reconcile the man he was with the man he’s becoming—a man capable of loving again.
I just love this due’s writing and this book was no different.
We’ve a solicitor on a case, looking for a missing heir. The said heir is believed to be in the English country side, a place that Tobin has never spent any time. So following his antics around the farm is charming and down right funny.
The missing heir, Daniel had good reason to disappear, and has started a wonderful new life for himself. Problem is when leaving the old one he left everything open ended. And now has come the time to pay the piper. Problem is, can he, does he care enough.
I love these two together, The sass of Tobin and the gruff of Daniel is a perfect balance. The way they both muddle through finding themselves for the first time and again. All the while tending to the farm and the animals.
You know, like all of Dee and Devon books we will get an HEA, but with these two, it was hard to see how. Well done for pulling it off.
