The illegitimate son of the wealthiest man in Cedar River, Jonah Rickard spent his life avoiding his father. Forced back home for a wedding, he’s brought face-to-face with the only woman to ever threaten his hardened heart. Connie Bedford knows what it is to be haunted by the past, betrayed by trust…scared by desire. Years ago, Jonah’s father saved her. Now only Connie and her love can save Jonah—and, maybe, his family…


Emotionally powerful! With the latest book in The Cedar River Cowboys series, we get the secret son Jonah’s story. I really enjoyed this book, but I feel like to get a real appreciation of the family dynamic behind his existence, it works better to have read the earlier books in the series. You can read it as a stand alone, I’m just not sure you’ll realize the hardship that’s been suffered by them all in doing so. It’s been a great series, and I enjoyed getting Jonah & Connie story. Very emotional and heartfelt!

Jonah Rickard has felt like J.D. O’Sullivan’s dirty litte secret for the thirty years that he’s kept him a secret from his family. Now that the truth has come out and the turmoil the revelation caused in his father’s family has started to calm down, Jonah finds himself stuck between his love for his mother and his anger at being put in this position to have to have contact with the father that he feels like rejected him.

Connie Bedford works for J.D. and one of Jonah’s half brothers, and feels a special allegiance to them because they saved her at a particularly rough time in her life. She really likes Jonah, and she can’t deny she’s super attracted to him, but how can she consider having anything to do with the man who is constantly bad-mouthing this family that she dearly loves?
