By: T.J. Kline
Releasing April 28th, 2015
TJ KLINE’s brand new Healing Hart's series kicks off with HEART'S DESIRE
If you could have anything, do anything… what would it be?
Jessie Hart has a soft spot for healing the broken, especially horses and children, but her business is failing and bankruptcy is looming. The one man who can save Heart Fire Ranch is the last man she wants to take advice from - financial expert Nathan Kerrington - the same man who broke her heart eight years ago.
Nathan Kerrington has it all, except the one thing he’d wanted most - Jessie. Now that he’s finally freed himself from his corrupt family, he wants to make amends. When he’s called in to save Jessie’s ranch, he sees his chance to win her back - if only he can prove to her that she can trust him with her heart…
Trust, love, and family connections put into a test in a compelling and captivating story.
Jessie, Julia, and Justin are not only struggling with the loss of their parents, it seems that the family ranch, that is Jessie's responsibility, is struggling financially. Without Jessie's consent, Justin asks his former best friend, Nathan, to help.
As soon as Jessie and Nathan meet again, it's like 8 years have vanished, and the physical attraction is sizzling again. But there are disappointments, broken hearts, untold facts, and different lifestyles between them. Jessie is mentally exhausted, from her parents death, her brothers doubts, running the ranch alone, and facing the financial troubles. Now she has to deal with her first, and only, love as well, who left her broken hearten 8 years ago. Her self esteem is low, she is feeling like a failure, like no one trusts her abilities, and she is starting to doubt herself as well. I have to say my heart broke a bit for her, she seemed so devastated. She is a capable, strong, opinionated and stubborn woman, she just can't see the same in herself as others do.
Nathan left the Hart family behind, to protect them from his crooked family. Now he has a new chance with Jessie, to set the record straight, and save the ranch from going under. I admired Nathan's patience, as Jessie is going from burning hot to cold and back, while doubting his and her own feelings.
Nathan's investigation brings out interesting, and unexpected, information, pulling the family loyalties, and setting a riff between the siblings. Is Nathan like his crooked father, trying to steal money from the ranch, or is someone else responsible for it?
Alluring story, where trust, faith, and confidence in themselves, and each other, will be the only way for love to win, and give hope for a future together.
