Katie not yet eighteen is running away from her foster Parents John Immediately Notices The Bruises All Her And The John immediately notices the bruises all her and the that she doesn t appear foster parents John immediately notices the bruises all over her and the fact that she doesn t appear have a single worldly possession other than the clothes on her back and he makes her an offer she s in no position to refuse Katie agrees to live with John as his housekeeper and cook He seems to believe himself when he assures the locals he s intentions are pure of course we know it ain t gonna stay that wayThings begin very slowly Katie is afraid of any man s touch whatever his intention because she s been physically abused at the hands of a man for so long John s intentions are innocent enough to start off with and he just wants her to be able to be near men without fear wants her to know good men exist and that he s one of them It s all about building trust and he determines to protect this innocent girl with every ounce of his being All is well Les Altaens : Peuple turc des montagnes de Sibrie until they hit some hurdles namely a bad bout of jealousy on John s part that threatens tondo the trust he and Katie have worked so hard to build There is also the reappearance of Katie s abusive foster parents who are set on revenge at any cost Mixed in with the bad is the good the welcome arrival of Katie s sister Jane also escaping the abusive foster parents Berta the motherly ranch cook who takes Katie The Possible Police under her wing the appearance of Katie s previouslynknown father and a very special surprise arrival Somewhere in all of that Katie and John fall in love and surprise surprise they get their long awaited happily ever after Now I have to be honest I was disappointed with this book as I was reading the first 50 or 60 pages I felt that the author short changed the characters by not providing enough of their histories which made it difficult for me to emotionally connect with them And then towards the end I was frustrated with Katie s character because of her foolishness in one particular situation BUT for all of my complaints damn if I couldn t put this book down I really liked it The author went on to build on the character s histories developed their relationships added some solid secondary characters and it all just grew on me Well worth the read and I ll certainly be reading of Carolyn Davidson s books I was really A Letter To Pakistan uick on the draw to DNF this mostly because of writing style a lot of tell over show and the fact that the heroine is young 18 and escaping an abusive foster parent situation I get that her options are extremely limited but she s awful trusting of the hero she just met especially since she ran away when her foster father kept trying to climb into her bed Also there s child like innocent young girl descriptorssed often to describe the heroine andno Just no A 18 year old girl hooking Before Our Eyes up for an older man the hero may be historical accurate but doesn t mean I want to read it. As still wrestling with the next day He knew he'd put his life on the line to protect her But would a man who knew nothing about being a husband ever be able to give Katie the happy ending she so deserve.
