I loved Ethan’s Heart! I was in the mood for a western romance, and this fit the bill perfectly! 

Set in 1805, Ethan Blackwood is a widower with two small girls. Six months earlier his wife was shot during a bank robbery. Ethan is set on finding her killers, but first, he needs to find someone who will watch and care for his daughters - he needs a wife. 

On the run for the murder of her step-father, Annabelle Benton Holt (Annie) with her baby, Lily, were on a wagon train heading west, but Lily became too sick to continue. So, Annie and Lily stayed behind in the small town of Cooper's Creek.  With little money and in a strange town, Annie is not sure what she is going to do. She needs to find a job quickly. The doctor caring for Lily has been kind to both of them, letting them stay at the office, but that won’t last much longer. 

The doctor happens to be the brother of Ethan Blackwood and thinks he knows the perfect solution for both Ethan and Annie. He arranges a meeting, and soon Ethan and Annie are married. It’s not until after they are married does Annie realize that Ethan’s the town sheriff. Oh, no! Will Ethan find out her secrets? 

I adore Annie! She’s strong and determined to be a good wife and mother. She's also generous and loving. I had tears in my eyes as I felt Annie’s pain. 

Ethan’s a good man but blinded by revenge. He still loves his first wife deeply, and he wants justice for her brutal murder. Will Annie be able to break through all the walls he’s built up? Will Ethan let her into his heart? 

Ethan’s Heart is a page-turner! I couldn’t put it down! It’s slightly predictable, but it does have some nice twists to the story that I didn't see coming. It all wraps together nicely! I would love to read the next book in the series, Escorting Darby Bloom

4 stars!
