Abused young woman with a baby/drifter who turns out to be a millionaire rancher romance. He marries her to save her from her abusive stepfather and to save himself from his descent into alcoholism at the loss of his family.
the story of rafe kendrick and maggie. this is a continuation of the kendrick/coulter family series. catherine anderson creates characters that you'd like to meet in real life, and this story is no exception.
This was another good book by Catherine Anderson. It is the start of the Kendrick/Coulter series. Lot's of emotion and drama with a heartbroken man who lost his family and a woman on the run from her family.
This is Book #1 in the Kendrick/Coulter series. Book#2-'Phantom Waltz' Book#3-'Sweet Nothings' Book#4-'Blue Skies' Book#5-'Bright Eyes' Book#6-'My Sunshine'. I enjoyed all of them. Heartwarming, and some good storylines for each book. Great series.
Desperate and determined, Maggie Stanley grabs her small baby and runs into the snowy Idaho night. In her loneliest, blackest hour, she unexpectedly finds a warmth and comfort she has never known in the tender compassion of a handsome, down-and-out stranger. In Rafe Kendrick, Maggie recognizes a sould wounded like her own--though she knows she must never trust any man ever again.
Rafe is more than he seems--an enigmatic man of secrets who could give Maggie the moon had he not vowed to spend his life alone. But sometimes love's flames can transform a cold world into paradise--and a man who's lost nearly everything, a woman who's forgotten how to dream, and the helpless child who needs them both can become that most wondrous creation, a family.
The first and possibly the best of this series. Anderson has a way with characters that have somehow been 'damaged' by life. The people she writes about are so easy to love and the stories are hard to put down. I was compelled to read every book in the Kendrick/Coulter series and I was not disappointed by any of them.
I love Catherine Anderson. This is a really good book. The woman Rafe tries to rescue, ends up rescuing him too, just in a different way. I enjoyed enough to read it more than once and I'd definitely recommend it.
ANOTHER GREAT CATHERINE ANDERSON BOOK. I LOVE THE WAY SHE WRITES ABOUT DIFFERENT FAMILY MEMBERS IN SEPARATE BOOKS, BUT TIES THEM ALL TOGETHER IN SEVERAL. YOU CAN READ ABOUT THE SAME PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT BOOKS. IT'S LIKE HAVING A BOOK THAT GOES ON AND ON. GREAT!
With her life and that of her baby threatened, Maggie grabs her baby and what she can carry, and runs. She jumps on an open box car at the train station, where she meets Rafe Kendrick. Rafe has been bumming around the country since the death of his wife and children a year past, and has become an alcoholic. Each of them needs the other to survive.
