About the Book


Book: A Heart’s Gift


Author: Lena Nelson Dooley


Genre: Christian historical romance






Is a marriage of convenience the answer?


Franklin Vine has worked hard to build the ranch he inherited into one of the most successful in the majestic Colorado mountains. If only he had an heir to one day inherit the legacy he’s building. But he was burned once in the worst way, and he doesn’t plan to open his heart to another woman. Even if that means he’ll eventually have to divide up his spread among the most loyal of his hired hands.


When Lorinda Sullivan is finally out from under the control of men who made all the decisions in her life, she promises herself she’ll never allow a man to make choices for her again. But without a home in the midst of a hard Rocky Mountain winter, she has to do something to provide for her infant son.


A marriage of convenience seems like the perfect arrangement, yet the stakes quickly become much higher than either of them ever planned. When hearts become entangled, the increasing danger may change their lives forever.

My Thoughts . . .


This is a sweet marriage of convenience story. I enjoyed the author's wonderful use of words to paint pictures that drew me into the scenes.


I found myself struggling to draw close to the main characters. They both seemed bogged down by past hurts through much of the story, making their relationship feel stuck in neutral.


I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.
