Home to Roost by Reina Torres
July 25, 2017
She didn’t have a place to belong. He thought he was happy by his lonesome. When she stumbled into his life, everything changed. Brigid Belham had always done what was expected. She worked for her father in his accounting office and managed his home. When he married, she knew it was her time to move on, and traveled to Jubilee Springs to meet a prospective husband. Her ‘best laid plan’ goes horribly awry, leaving her stranded. Caught in a storm of both rain and tumultuous emotions she ends up lost in the woods, until she’s found by a mountain man grumpier than a bear. All he wants to do is send her away. What if she wants to stay? Most people in Jubilee Springs know him as a hermit, a mountain man who hardly talks and likes company even less. His parents named him Livingstone Quinn, but unlike his namesake, he doesn’t want to explore. He doesn’t want to discover. He just wants his peace and quiet, all by his lonesome with his animals on his homestead. When Brigid literally falls at his feet, he keeps telling her she needs to leave, but shocks himself when he keeps finding reasons for her to stay. What will he do when he runs out of excuses? In the whole wide world they managed to find each other. Would they walk away from their happiness, or would they bring their love home to roost?
Neither one expected the other to be anything else than who they are
Well written and well described that places you right in the story. You will feel Brigid’s rejection and despair. There’s an undeniable chemistry between the main characters, Brigid and Quinn. Along with the wonderful characters, you meet barn animals with quite the personality. Reina Torres certainly has a gift for writing sweet, western historical romances and soon has you vested in the characters and town. Her book titles also match the story perfectly. Looking forward to reading more from this town.
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.
