Review by Suze

Emma has moved back in with her father. Her aggressive ex-husband is out of her life and she's glad she's rid of him for good. Being back in Broken Falls doesn't mean she's out of danger though. Her violent ex-husband might be in jail, but Emma's ex-brothers-in-law are still after her and they are screwing up every job she takes. Emma is afraid and lonely, but when she meets Cash she finally feels safe. Cash doesn't want to get attached to her though, because he has a past and he doesn't want anyone to come close because of the secrets he's keeping. When he meets Emma he feels something he's never felt before, but does he dare to let her in?

While Cash has his own demons to fight he also helps Emma battling hers. She has to learn how to stand up for herself, she needs a place to work where she won't be harassed all the time and she should start rebuilding her self-confidence. With Cash's help she can do anything, but he isn't a sure part of her life. Will Emma and Cash have a chance or are their pasts too dark to ever have a bright future again?

Emma is a sweetheart. She is such a good person and it was awful to read about the things her ex-husband did to her. She's stronger than she thinks and because she's so kind it's easy to like her. Cash has a good heart. He's protective and he cares about others, but he's also struggling with things that have happened to him. Emma and Cash are both wonderful people who deserve a chance at happiness and it's obvious that they belong together. I liked their connection from the start. It's not just chemistry, it's something deeper than that, which was interesting to read about.

Jennie Marts knows how to mix suspense with romance. I love the vivid way she writes about her main characters, they come to life very well. I enjoy reading about farms and cowboys and I think Stolen Away is a great countryside story. The combination of meaningful friendship and true love is beautiful. I highly recommend the Hearts of Montana series.

Sometimes you find what you need in the most unlikely places...

Charlie Ryan's cheating fiancé left her with a broken heart and even broker bank account. She's hit rock bottom, but everything is about to change. Suddenly, she's inherited a Montana farm named Tucked Away from a grandmother she never knew existed. A fresh start is just what she needs - and no men in her future this time, even if the local vet is as hot as a Montana summer.

Zack Cooper is content with his simple life. Running his veterinary practice and raising his daughter are enough to keep him busy, and he doesn't need a high-maintenance city girl like his ex who plans to sell her grandma's ranch and split faster than a setting sun. So why can't he stop thinking about Charlie and her hot-pink cowboy boots...and the way her eyes say she wants to stay while her lips tease him with plans of leaving?

Just when both start to believe love might be worth the risk...one night will change everything.

Secrets have a way of revealing themselves….

Right after a fire breaks out in her diner, a phone call changes Cherry Hill’s life. The tragic death of her cousin leaves Cherry sole guardian of her eight-year-old nephew. But the upper crust side of the Hill family deems her unfit and is determined to take Sam away from her. The only one on her side is the sexy sheriff, Taylor Johnson, the man who broke her heart nine years ago when he left town.

Taylor Johnson has sworn to protect the citizens of Broken Falls, but should that extend to a fake engagement to the woman who captured his heart so long ago? It doesn’t take long for his pretend feelings to turn real for both Cherry and her adorable nephew, Sam.

But Cherry’s been hiding a secret from Taylor that could rip this new family apart…

Excerpt

Screw all that business of not getting involved with her.

He wanted her. Wanted to kiss her so badly he could taste it. Wanted to kiss her beyond all reason, beyond good sense.

Closer.

His head screaming at him to stop, but his heart and his body ignoring it, crying out with their own desires of want and need. He’d been thinking about her and now here she was—warm and in the flesh and so close to being in his arms.

His hands itched to slide up her arms, to caress her skin, to plunge into her hair. He ached to pull her to him, to slide her body under his, to touch and explore.

Closer still. So slow. So sweet. His lips barely brushing hers in the faintest of whispers. Her breath sucking in at the barest degree of touch. Her lips trembling.

Be brave, Emma. I won’t hurt you.

He froze. His lips scarcely touching hers. Because he would. He would hurt her. Eventually. He always did.

The darkness inside of him always won out, and he eventually ended up hurting them all. Not physically, but by his stubborn refusal to commit to a relationship, to not settle down with or give anyone a chance to really be with him. He hurt them by walking away, not giving anything of himself—anything real.

But he didn’t want to hurt her. Couldn’t bear to think of causing her any more pain. She’d had enough. Been through enough.

The last thing she needed was him.
