An Honorable Cowboy
Determined single mother Willow Reames has one goal: to reunite with her sisters and begin a new life with them and her infant son. But when she's unexpectedly stranded in the Montana wilderness—with her siblings nowhere in sight—she needs to rely on the kindness of Johnny Harding.
It's more than honor that compels the half Native American cowboy to help the beautiful widow and her adorable baby. The little family evokes his masculine instincts to protect them. Soon woman-wary Johnny is cradling baby Adam in his arms and offering to assist Willow in finding her missing sisters. As their hearts slowly thaw, can Johnny convince Willow to trust him with the secret she's keeping so, just maybe, they can have a future together?
Montana Cowboys: These brothers live and love by the code of the West
Trust and forgiveness is on the line, as Johnny and Willow get to know each other, while searching for her sisters in Montana.
I enjoyed Johnny and Willow, and baby Adam, together. The connection they have is instant, at least from Johnny's side. And mostly, at first, with Adam. Those two recognised something in each other immediately, that forced a strong bond between them. Not so fast forming, but as strong as anything, was also the bond between Willow and Johnny. Being the honorable, kind man that he is, Johnny can't turn his back on her, while she obviously needs help.
The journey they take together is filled with worry, dangers, and pitfalls. The worry for Willow's sisters, the menace of the men on the road, and so much adversity, while trying to start the new life.
Mostly they are tested in their faith in God, and trust, that He is in charge, and sees their future, and the big picture, even while they are not able to. The forgiveness for themselves, for those who have wronged them in the past, and learning to leave it in the past, are all lessons both Johnny and Willow, as well as Willow's sisters, have relearn couple times. This story has a strong and definite message, that is easy to suit to one's own life as well.
The tale takes us through in a gentle way, the growth and cultivation of the characters, their maturation in faith to God, and learning to trust again, in themselves, their feelings, and each other, while forming a beautiful family of the heart
