Shiloh needed a fresh start. In her condition, 8 months pregnant, starting over was going to be hard on this single mother but she was determined to do this on her own.  With money from her deceased husband’s estate, she could afford to go anywhere but when the stagecoach stopped in the small town of Hidden Springs, she decided to get off. She immediately was drawn to the small town. With the children running down the street, men yelling to each other and the ladies hurriedly going from store to store, she knew she had found her new home. When a hand was held out to her, she felt an unfamiliar charge run from her hand to the gentleman helping her exit the coach. She looked up into the handsome face of Ben Kincaid, the town doctor.
Ben was shaken by the electrical charge he felt when the very pregnant woman placed her hand in his. It had been years since he had felt that exchange, the instant attraction to another woman. There had only been one other woman to affect him that way and he vowed to never let anyone destroy him like she had again. But the attraction is undeniable and when a crisis threatens the entire town, Ben and Shiloh realize that life is unpredictable. You must take every opportunity to be happy and follow your heart, even if it means finding closure from your past.
This is a historical romance, which I usually do not enjoy. This book however, was the exception. Well written and not too much history to bore me to tears; I enjoyed the characters and the forward thinking woman Shiloh. It has a HEA, which I f’love! 4 stars
