Audio: Born to Love - Leigh Greenwood

Weary of war and the endless cycle of vengeance, former Night Rider Holt Price returns to Galveston, Texas to reconnect with the woman he once promised to marry. He's content to live a quiet, loveless life . . . until he meets the doctor's brown-eyed daughter, and his whole world changes in an instant.

Felicity Moore is everything Holt never realized he needed. Kind and compassionate yet beautifully fierce, she alone has the strength to pull him back from a fruitless quest for revenge. But now Holt has an impossible choice to make: honor the promise he made years ago . . . or find true happiness in the arms of the woman he was born to love.

For review


My thoughts:
I do love cowboys, though I can  not really call Holt a cowboy. It seems he did spend two years on a ranch, but I was not on that ranch seeing him doing cowboy things ;) Instead he is a doctor, he was a surgeon during the war, and is more a gentleman than a cowboy. Sad indeed, but I still like him.

But this man so needed a slap on the head. He comes to Galveston looking for a woman he always loved. A woman who married someone else, and who was so just toying with him. But he has this notion that he must marry her cos his uncle told him too. Men! I did like him, but he needed to take of those rose colored glasses.

Because then he meets Felicity. Who has spent her entire life taking care of her father. Who is drinking too much. Who lost their ranch. And who is suffering from PTS from the war. She was so hardworking and I felt sorry for her. She tried being so tough, but what she needed was to see the truth too. Another truth.

These two have a long dance. He thinks he is in love with someone else. She just wants to shield her father. I liked that they got to know each other, that they had time to fall in love (without realizing it). That he spent time being a doctor and getting to know her father. Oh and there is another secret plot too that brought some suspense and drama. Seeecret.

I enjoyed it.

Narrator Rebecca Mitchell
I liked her different voices and I did find myself caught up in their world.

  5. Well, I love cowboys, but he doesn't seem very bright, feeling like he needs to marry some girl just because uncle says so! Wow, get a grip, Holt! At least he gets to meet someone else :)

  8. See... the cover says NO because... cowboy. But your review says MAYBE because a doctor on a ranch is good!
