Wild at Heart


The youngest of the Harts has her chance in the spotlight, but Bailey would much prefer being with her band in Los Angeles, pursuing her own dreams. She’s put them off long enough, happily helping out at the ranch, even as she never quite felt like she was ‘enough’. Now it is simply a matter of telling everyone she’s ready to go, and following through.

I have always liked Bailey’s rocker edge, she’s sweet and kind, will do everything in her power to help her family, but she wants the opportunity to learn from her own mistakes with no safety net. She’s always drawn people to her, and Chase is no exception.  Bailey’s overprotective cousin Justin’s best friend, Chase is back in town from working in the Oakland Police Department.  While Bailey’s always had a crush – she never shared it, nor did she think that Chase felt the same way

Back in town after a long absence, Chase just wants the chance to show Bailey that they could be more than friends. Interactions and dialogue that highlights their long acquaintance, the sparks fly off these two even as they take their own sweet time to turn them to flame.

Emotionally layered, the characters need to deal with old issues, resentments and anger that will both heal them and help them to discover what is really important. Communication and the healing that open and honest sharing can bring is highlighted here as our couple comes to see their own strengths, and how to reach for their dreams.

The third I’ve read in this series, Bailey’s story is one of learning to love yourself, to be ready for the opportunity to really love someone else. Each story has focused on healing, emotional and physical, and Wild at Heart is no different. Kline brings characters that you want to know (or may know already) and gives us a glimpse into their lives, showing the possibilities for more…

Sometimes the place you’re trying to run from is exactly where your heart needs to be…

Bailey Hart has never felt like she measures up to her cousins at Heart Fire Ranch. It doesn’t help that her rocker attitude has made her a black sheep in her small town. So when her band gets their big break in Los Angeles, “Wild Hart” can’t run fast enough…If only there weren’t so many reasons to stay.

After a harrowing stint in the Oakland Police Department, sheriff’s deputy Chase McKee has returned home a hero, and yet he feels anything but. And when he finds out Bailey might be leaving for good, the feelings he’s always harbored for his best friend’s cousin just won’t stay hidden. He knows she wants to get the heck out of Dodge, but he’s hoping to show her where she really belongs—with him.

Will this Wild Hart turn her back on love, or will she realize her heart really belongs closer to home?

 “Woman, you could crush a man’s ego, talking like that. I knew you were feisty, but I didn’t know you were heartless.” He winked at her, stepping up to grab the cleaning supplies from her hand. When his fingers brushed over hers, he felt the vibration of desire travel all the way to his toes.

“Then I guess there’s a lot you don’t know about me.”

Like what your lips taste like, how your eyes would darken with desire, or what it would be like to feel your breasts pressed against my chest and feel your skin under my fingertips.

His mind was busy filling in the blanks when her hand moved under his, sliding the cleaning tote back onto the table. Her blue eyes were dark, and he wanted to believe he was seeing the same hunger he knew was in his. Then she rolled her eyes, pursing her lips, and moved away from him. His fingers burned where they’d held hers only seconds before and turned cold where her warmth had just been.

She reached for the handle of the vacuum, rolling it toward the doorway. “You know, you could wait for Jessie outside.”

He almost laughed as she eyed him suspiciously. “What? Can’t trust yourself alone with me?”

“Yes, of course, that’s it.” She nodded, the mound of hair piled on her head bobbing forward. It took every bit of self-control for him to keep from brushing back the loose wisps that had fallen forward and were stuck against her cheek. “There’s just something about a man in a dingy khaki shirt that makes a girl’s heart beat fast. I think I’ll pass.”

“You invited me to Julia’s for dinner, remember?”

“I was joking.”

“I’m not so sure.”

“Then it must have been temporary insanity,” she offered.

He couldn’t help but laugh, opening the door to the cabin. Gracie ran out into the yard ahead of him. “I’ll have you know, there are plenty of women around here who’d love to have dinner with me.” He smiled as she turned back to him, skepticism clearly written on her face.

“Well, you know what they say. We women have to kiss a few frogs to find Prince Charming, so . . .”

Chase arched his brows as a grin tugged at the corner of his mouth. “Bailey, are you offering to kiss me?”

“I’d rather kiss—”

“Ah-ah,” he warned with a laugh. “You should be careful. With all the animals your cousins have around here, whichever one you pick could probably be arranged.”
