    But the biggest mistake of all, the one she d never repeat again, was falling in love Never would she trust another man with her deepest, darkest secret Never would she hope that he would love her for herself and not the children she could never give him.I don t usually read Christian romances, but this was free And I thought, Why not Eva Brooks is a huge klutz She can t cook worth a damn, she has a tendency to break everything and she s very clumsy But she really wants to help out while But the biggest mistake of all, the one she d never repeat again, was falling in love Never would she trust another man with her deepest, darkest secret Never would she hope that he would love her for herself and not the children she could never give him.I don t usually read Christian romances, but this was free And I thought, Why not Eva Brooks is a huge klutz She can t cook worth a damn, she has a tendency to break everything and she s very clumsy But she really wants to help out while living on her cousin s ranch.She has nowhere else to go She was abandoned at the alter six months ago by her fianc when he couldn t deal with the fact that she s unable to have children After a tragic bull goring accident at age 16, she was rendered infertile Yes, I said bull goring accident This makes her very upset to be around children But after a three month baby is abandoned at the ranch the product of one of her male cousin s one night stands, probably Eva is pressured into becoming a nanny She ends up loving little baby Cody But she s sad and upset that she ll never have a family of her own one day.You could say, What about adoption But Eva s convinced that the men in her small town are only interested in having biological children In this small community, most of the ranchers valued family and children above everything else Except their land and cattle, which they wanted to pass on to their kids one day If she couldn t have children, what good was she No man in the area would ever want her And she wasn t about to leave town She loved Little Horn She d been born and raised here The thought of leaving to try to find a husband left her feeling cold and empty inside.She really believes this That no man will accept adoption and that she is worthless because she is unable to have kids She resigns herself to being single for the rest of her life, even though she really wants a family.Our hero is Dr Tyler Grainger, a doctor from the big city Austin who is working out a one year contract in his little hometown When he told his financ e, Kayla, that he was working for a year in the sticks, she unceremoniously dumped him Which seems strange to me, but okay But he doubted he d ever find another woman to love He couldn t trust himself to that kind of heartache again.He s a pediatrician because his little sister Jenny died when he was 17 and she was 10 He s never gotten over it, and he s haunted by what happened to Jenny to this day That s why he dedicated his life to saving children s lives and keeping them healthy.So that s your basic love story But on top of that, we have all kinds of soap opera shenanigans going on.This happens on page 16Any news yet on who the baby s mama is No, nothing since Ben found him on our doorstep with nothingthan a blanket to tell us his name If only Ben hadn t had that horrible accident right afterward And now he s lying in the hospital in a coma This was me o.OWe have a mysterious cattle rustler who is stealing livestock and machinery from local farms A mysterious benefactor who is gifting new straw, hay, and livestock to poor farmers in the area A three month old baby that appears on the doorstep with a mysterious note saying Your baby, your turn Cousin Ben is in a coma after a horse riding accident We don t know if the baby is his Cousin Grady is fighting over in Afghanistan We don t know if the baby is his.NONE of these issues are resolved in the book NONE OF THEM.This is a miniseries although it s not listed as one on GR called Lone Star Cowboy League.1 A Reunion for the Rancher2 This book.3 A Ranger for the Holidays4 A Family for the Soldier5 A Daddy for Her Triplets6 A Baby for the RancherSo, the only story that gets resolved is the love story between Tyler and Eva If you want to know what happens to everyone else, I guess you ll have to finish out the miniseries Let s talk about the love story.This book is very tame, gentle, and moderate Eva gets excited by things like seeing Tyler eat a grape and nod pleasantly Heading for the door to the living room, Tyler reached out and snatched a grape out of a bowl sitting on the counter He popped the fruit into his mouth and grinned With a pleasant nod, he exited the room.Watching him go, Eva felt a melting warmth flood her veins.Tyler, on the other hand, is very turned on by things like Eva s shapely ankles He gazed at her trim ankles, thinking there must be oodles of men lined up at her door.Yes Sexy ankles bring all the boys to the yard.LOL I m just kind of poking fun Actually, the book was better than I expected.How s the religion, Carmen Good I was not confronted with any messages that made me uncomfortable in this book It didn t say that women who had sex before marriage were sluts, it didn t gay bash, it didn t do any of thehateful things Christianity can be used to do The religion here was mainly trust in God, and a rather small subplot about Eva bringing Tyler back to the church He lost his faith when his sister died This is often a feature of Christian romances the strong faith of one partner brings the lost partner back into the fold of ChristI don t know all the answers, but I know God has a plan for each of us You re wrong, Tyler Grainger, Eva said God loves all of us We may not see His plan for our lives, but He knows It s our duty to be patient and trust Him He ll take care of everything for us, if we just have faith Yeah, well, that s fine for you, but not for me How s the sex, Carmen Well, there is no sex, since this is a Christian romance novel and it would be a sin for these two people to have sex before getting married.I was worried there would be no kissing I am fine with the no sex clause if I am reading a Christian romance I respect and support people s right not to have sex until after marriage But if there s no kissing in a book, I am disappointed and sad You ve gotta throw me some kissing or I can t get into the book.Fortunately for me, Bale seems to be okay with having the couple kiss before the wedding.There s only one described kiss.Here it is Strong emotions she couldn t describe crashed over her What was happening What was wrong with her He kissed her A swift, gentle caress that made her mind swirl in giddy abandonment.Without thinking, she lifted a hand and rested it against his chest, just over his heart She planned to push him away, but her mind betrayed her Instead, her fingers curled around the soft cambric cloth of his shirt and she pulled him in closer.That s it, that s the whole kiss That s the sum of kissing in the book, except the part when view spoiler she kisses Tyler on the neck when he proposes Neck kissing is very serious I m not being sarcastic, I really mean that It feels so damn good hide spoiler And her MIND betrayed her Not her traitorous body, the trope that s so popular nowadays LOLHowever, I was a little bit peeved that the kiss of the book came at a kind of inopportune moment, right after view spoiler Eva is knocked to the ground by the mysterious thief And there are lots of people around hide spoiler That s no time for kissing And believe me, I love kissing and think every time is a time for kissing, but here I was just frustrated I wished it had been apeaceful and private time when they had kissing.It s really sweet to see Tyler trying to tackle Eva s insecurity about her infertile body Tyler s heart gave a powerful thump He couldn t imagine giving up on Eva just because she couldn t have children It wasn t her fault And it d be cruel to cast her aside because of it If she were his fianc e, she d be his prize Children were just an expression of the love he would have for her Nothing would ever take precedence over her Not for him Not ever. Not sure about calling her his prize, this seems kind of questionable to me When he tries to convince her to marry him and she flat out refuses convinced she s saving him from later heartache I thought he was going to stay and fight for her like a man I was excited But then, Bale has him planning to leave back to Austin anyway, instead of staying and fighting for his love Everything turns out alright in the end, and he mans up eventually, but I expected a bitfrom him earlier on.The book is also focused on the fact that Eva can t cook There are a lot of statements like, Well, she s a great person even if she can t cook And I find her attractive even though she can t even make a pot of coffee Etc etc I know this is a small town full of good Christian folk, but come on Not every woman is going to be skilled in the kitchen I found it rather amusing that this was such a big deal in the book Better than getting angry Tyler s NOT bossy and controlling which is another issue that sometimes crops up in Christian romances the submission thing although I d be lying if I said it wasn t a huge, huge and much bigger problem in secular romance o.O he is good at letting Eva be her own person and do her own thing And he s respectful and good with consent.There s also a really strange vibe about not exposing women and children to arguments and angry people Every time Byron McKay who Eva constantly describes as a big, angry man while clutching her baby protectively shows up and starts arguing with thepleasant citizens of the little town, Eva stresses out about exposing the baby to this kind of emotional display and Tyler worries about Eva being somewhere where anger is shown.This rather baffles me I can understand about the baby yelling and arguments might disturb the baby, theoretically but Tyler s concern that Eva is never exposed to angry people throws me for a loop She s grown I m sure she can handle people having an argument without, I don t know, fainting or having trouble breathing I don t like when heroes infantilize the heroine like this No doubt she hadn t liked the loud voices and arguments Neither had Tyler For some reason, he wished she hadn t come here tonight As a member of the investigation team, it was important for her to be here and participate, but he wished she hadn t witnessed all the anger in the room He wanted to protect her To keep her safe They re just disagreeing at the town council meeting Chill out, Tyler.Tl dr But my complaints about the book are minor For a Christian romance novel, this is actually pretty good It is pro adoption I like that It is NOT about Amish people I like that There s none of thedamaging Christian I m putting these in quotes because I don t think these are really Christian messages in here, such as premarital sex equals hell or gay people are going to hell or anything like that There is kissing The love story is sweet.All in all, if you are looking for a Christian, positive, gentle book that features two people falling in love, you could do a lot worse than this.THREE REAL STARS, THREE ROMANCE STARSP.S Oh, Love Inspired This is a Christian Harlequin line of books, in case you were wondering.Here s the description You believe hearts can heal Love Inspired stories show that faith, forgiveness and hope have the power to lift spirits and change lives always.That s from Harlequin s website Now you know what s up

    This book was an easy read and had mystery in it that continues through the series.

  6. June June says:

    Other than a last name or two, there doesn t seem to be a lot of connection to the Love Inspired Historical part of this continuity series Just that the Cowboy League lasted through the generations The stories are great though Loved how Eve just naturally fell into the nanny job and how Doc just naturally fell into her spell.
