Emily March comes to the blog with the second book of her spin-off from the Eternity Springs series, The McBrides of Texas with
Intending to be a career army man, Tucker discovered that life as a paper-manager, while allowing him the opportunity to save lives and make some necessary changes, was too filled with politics, vipers and backstabbing for his soul, and he left. Without a plan. Feeling like he failed. Heading back for some outdoor centering and a visit with his McBride cousins in the little town called Redemption, he’s totally unprepared for someone like Gillian. Walking down a deserted road. In a dress and heels. Miles from anywhere.
An argument with her fiancé over their upcoming wedding had Gillian leaving in a snit – and anger had her lost, aided by an old Pecan tree, a feral hog and a car now unable to drive. Walking seemed to be the most logical option. But she saw no one until Tucker. On his Harley. White Knight to the rescue, he shares his phone for her to call her fiancé off the golf course, arranging to pick her up at a local convenience store not 10 miles away.
And then it’s on. Tucker trying to forget the beauty and charm that was Gillian, her trying to ignore the flutters. With a recalcitrant (at best) or argumentative withdrawn fiancé, she’s just holding everything together, planning her wedding and making plans for the events planning business she and the fiancé are to open. But Tucker has his own issues – most of all feeling like he failed at his longed for career – while still being there for family, while not quire being able to forget Gillian and his desire for her. But when things start to fall apart for Gillian, she runs to Tucker for help and the confidence that he so quietly gives her. With family, friends and plenty of chemistry and back and forth between these two, plenty of drama from bridezillas and a college nemesis, a few rather ‘offbeat’ references and advice from others in the family and finally the realization that being with someone who builds your confidence and sees you as amazing, even in your childish moments is all that matters.
