Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rugged, quiet, hardworking, Wyatt takes his position as head of the Kinnison family seriously. But the scars of betrayal by the women to whom he once trusted his heart now prompt his stark, simple game plan, and no one in hell is going to convince him any differently. What matters most, besides the welfare of his brothers, is to manage the ranch left to him and never risk his heart again to something as foolish as love—but after meeting Aimee, Wyatt begins to realize that a man should never say never to a determined second grade teacher.
When vivacious, resilient Aimee Worth loses her twin sister in a tragic accident, she makes the choice to live out her sister’s dream of teaching in the small mountain community called End of the Line, Montana, never suspecting she’d meet her Mr. Right in the middle of nowhere—he just doesn’t know it yet. Used to challenges, her spirit shatters the perceptions that have kept him isolated from living life beyond the ranch, proving to him that when it comes to love, the greatest risk is not taking one.
Rugged Hearts is a good read about two people who are brought together and seem to be kept together by the harsh Montana winter. The sparks fly between Wyatt & Aimee from the beginning and continued through to the end.
This is a good easy love story that makes a perfect summer read in spite of the story being around the Christmas season which makes it a perfect book to bring along with you when on holiday for the summer.
From the beginning you get the feeling that there is a reason for these two to come together. It becomes clear as the story progresses and it’s a good approach, for these two people who’ve suffered loss in their past.
I enjoyed Aimee’s fresh ‘speak your mind’ way, she was not one to mince words and that helped her get her point across to the closed off man that Wyatt is.
The love scenes are reserved and done well. This is an enjoyable read.
