About the Book

Hiding in the shadows just got harder.
When tragedy strikes, Juliana and her family must flee their home. Can they persuade a virtual stranger to help them? Juliana isn’t so sure, especially after their chaperone threatens to cane him. Even as Juliana struggles to trust him, she finds herself drawn to this mysterious man. Surely all she wants from him is refuge…
Rupert is a man whose life depends on his ability to remain unnoticed. What, then, is he supposed to do with this family he’s inherited? His life is overrun with an ancient chaperone who would terrify a lesser man, two spirited girls, and the secretive Juliana – someone he comes to think of as his own precious jewel.
With this new responsibility thrust upon him, Rupert will have to make sacrifices – but will God ask him to sacrifice everything?

Review

I lost myself in this book! Once I picked it up there was no putting it down. Heather Gray led me down a delicious path of intrigue that I was compelled to follow until the end. The heroine is not your typical hopeless romantic but a woman with real values and fearless loyalty to her sisters. She is certainly not naive or waiting for some man to sweep her off her feet. She is a character you come to admire as is the hero. He is a hero worth dreaming about…a true gentleman, loyal to a fault, selfless and, well, just about perfect! The villain is illusive, ruthless, and is not revealed until the climax & what a surprise it is! This book has intrigue, romance, suspense and humor, what more can you ask for? I received a complimentary copy for an honest review and do so with pleasure. Thank you once again Heather for entertaining us with another incredible story & the wonderful characters you so aptly create. If I could you give more than five stars I would!

Review

Excellent Page Turner!
I love it when I am totally captivated by a book right from the beginning to the very last page. I absolutely loved this story! If you enjoy a good suspense that has you glued then this is the book for you. Felicia, once again, has given readers a wonderful Christian romance with such skill and finesse that it is difficult to put this one down until the end. The main characters are so extremely likable and the storyline is full of intrigue, humor and romance. I highly recommend this one!

About the Book

With a will that reads like a piece of fiction, the return of his long-lost brother, and the possibility of losing the family ranch, Micah Cooper calls on high school friend, Sky Baxter, to bail him out of a bad situation.

Though her brain tells her no, Sky’s heart says yes. She accepts Micah’s in-name-only proposal, knowing it’s unlikely anything permanent will come of it. She’s been in love with him since the ninth grade, and if he hasn’t figured it out by now, there’s little chance he ever will.

When an unexpected kiss ignites a spark, giving Micah hope for a possible future with Sky, a tragic accident threatens to take it all away. Torn between following his heart, doing the right thing, and forgiving the past, Micah is lost in a whirlwind of pain and emotions. Will he make it through the next two years, or will a long-kept family secret be the undoing of the Cooper family? (or… be the undoing of all of them?)

Review

Five Stars Aren’t Enough!
Lucie Ulrich doesn’t just tell us a story, she brings us into the story! There wasn’t a moment, while reading this book, that I didn’t feel a connection to all the characters. I felt their pain and joy, their confusion and relief….It is a story about love and loss, tragedy and forgiveness, inspiration and faith. You’ll be teary-eyed many times throughout the story, so keep a box of tissues close by. And you’ll become so attached to these characters that you’ll be better for it! I found myself becoming so completely involved in the story that I just refused to accept the fact that there could be anything but a happy ending! It is emotional, inspiring and unforgettable. This will be a book I will pick up again and again and will recommend it to everyone I can. I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review and will be forever thankful. Please, please pick up this book! Lucie Ulrich is an insightful and brilliant storyteller and will keep you captivated from start to finish.
