Book Info:

When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life…

It’s business—not pleasure—that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating—from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.

But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?

    This book sounds like the perfect summer read for me. The cover is so fun and romantic.

    Using animals in therapy programs is very effective. We have a horse therapy program near here that works with veterans dealing with service related problems, as well as children and other traumatized or ill individuals. It has been very successful. As it seems is the case in this book, the animals can also benefit from a program. Even if it isn’t a formal program, person and animal can sense a wounded soul and reach out to each other to sooth, understanding, and heal. I look forward to meeting your characters and their story.
