Healing Hearts by Reina Torres
Second Chance Series, book 3
A St. Helena Vineyard Kindle World Novella
Release Date: January 25, 2017
This is the 5th book by Reina Torres that I’ve had the pleasure to read. As with all her books, this book is packed with heart and passion. She has a wonderful ability to write a complete, developed story into a novella. The characters are developed and the storyline realistic. The main characters have the storyline but there are ample secondary characters that add to their story. I like stories with strong female leads and Stella is strong in so many ways. Kyle is a very confident male lead who finds himself annoyed at first at the distraction that is Stella, then finding that she has cracked the shield around his heart. There are funny and emotional moments in this story. Another enjoyable read from Ms. Torres.
Physically she’s never been stronger – He’s Dr. Fix It – But you can’t just write a prescription for the heart!
Stella always had a little bit of hero worship for Kyle from the moment he bandaged her skinned knee on the playground, but while he grew up to be the ultra-confident man you could lean on, she became the woman who was determined to stand on her own two feet. When her lifelong dream was in danger of falling apart, the last person she expects to throw obstacles in her way is the same man who makes her heart tremble with a glance. Can fate really be that cruel? After all, fate owes her one after dealing her one disastrous blow after another. Can she trust that it’s her turn to come out on top?
If there’s something that needs fixing, Kyle O’Malley is the man you call. From para jumping into war torn areas to rescue injured soldiers, to helping his patients recover from life altering physical injuries, he’s hands on and all kinds of intense. Stella gets under his skin in more ways than one, and her soft curves are more than a match for his hard edges. But she’s a distraction that he doesn’t need. He’s determined to start his private practice in St. Helena. Building his practice means everything to Kyle, but Stella is quickly becoming close to his heart.
Kyle is the Grandson of Stan O’Malley who owns Stan’s Soup & Service Station on Main Street. And Kyle watched Dax, one of his oldest friends, succumb to forever love in Need You For Always. Now it’s Kyle’s turn to find happiness.
Healing Hearts continues to explore the sun dappled vineyards and groves of St. Helena after the conclusion of Marina Adair’s amazing romance series. You’ll find new friends along the way and visit with old friends at every turn.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Love – Romance – Books Aren’t they all the same thing? Oh, I sure hope so! I’ve been reading romance books for what seems like forever. When I was a teen, the days that I wasn’t in dance class after school I’d go to the mall to wait for my mom to finish work for the day and my haunt of choice… Waldenbooks. (I think I just showed my age there.) Whether it was Scottish Lairds, Medieval Knights, Regency Gents, Rough and Tumble Cowboys, or handsome modern Heroes, I loved them all! There was always another hero and heroine to follow through page after page of breathless love! I really hope that my readers will enjoy some of the same thrills as discover characters to love between the pages of my books.
