A specialized placement schedule and self-imposed vow of celibacy keeps ER nurse, Gina Montgomery, from getting too close to anyone. Music is her only solace and release from a past laced with abuse. But when that music draws the attention of a handsome rodeo bareback rider, her chosen solitary life—not to mention her vow—gets tested to the limits.
Holt Reynolds let his younger sister down when she needed him most. With the similarities to his sister far too evident in Gina, he can’t get the woman out of his head, or her poignant music out of his heart. But how can he find a way to free her bridled heart before the past resurfaces to destroy their one chance at happiness?
Bridled Heart is an emotional, wonderfully written contemporary romance. The story touches a dark subject and how it affects the heroine today, but Gina goes through a tremendous change once she meets and begins to trust Holt. She's very quiet and withdrawn before, and during the story, blooms into a strong, admirable woman. Holt is a great hero to read about, and meeting Gina changes him in many ways as well. The story flows well, there's not a dull moment and I could not put this book down. The characterization is dynamic, and makes Holt, Gina, and many of the secondary characters so memorable.
Are you looking for a great contemporary western romance that will keep you reading throughout the night? Do you like stories that have characters you can't help but love? Pick up Bridled Heart by Paty Jager. I loved this novel.
