Catherine Anderson is one of my favorite authors and I usually love her books, but I have to admit that this one was a bit of a disappointment for me.

At the core, I liked the storyline - Loni, a clairvoyant, has a vision that a young boy is lost in the wilderness and only horseman Clint Harrigan will be able to save him. There's also the fact that the boy is Clint's biological son - which Clint doesn't know. After some disbelief on Clint's part, the two head out on horseback to rescue young Trev

The latest in the series tells Clint Harrigan's story. We met him briefly in his sister Samantha's book, Sun Kissed. He came off as a hot head, but of course a gorgeous hothead, in that one so I was interested to learn more about him. Clint is contacted by psychic, Loni, who tells him his son is in danger. What? He doesn't have a son. They begin a wilderness hunt for the child and end up falling in love. I was a little disappointed that there was only the single love scene, but then the characte ...more

Okay, first off, I want to state that I am a HUGE fan of Catherine Anderson. I count down the days until another of her books is released. I own every single thing she's ever written, and they are all treasured keepers. But this book is going right in my "trade for credit" box. I cannot believe that this is written by the same author who wrote the moving reads of Annie's Song, Comanche Moon, Seventh Heaven, Baby Love or Phantom Waltz, just to name a few.

Another wonderful book by Anderson and once again I am reminded of why she is one of my favorite authors! Everything about Loni MacEwen and Clint Harrington was absolutely adorable! The paranormal aspect added a twist that I really enjoyed!

Loni left her old life and moved to Crystal Falls where nobody knew of her psychic abilities. Ever since she was a little girl she’s had visions of a dreamy cowboy and would fantasize about him romantically. But now all grown up, and being unlucky in love, sh

3 stars.

This is the story of the oldest Harrigan brothers, Clint. I liked the psychic elements. However, similar to the previous book Sun Kissed that featured the only Harrigan sister, Sam, there's a bit too much talk of religion and horses in this book for my taste. Hopefully this trend doesn't continue with the rest of the Harrigan brothers.

Let me first say that I hate Inspirational or Religious books of any kind. They are always too preachy for me. I'm not the least bit religious.

I loved this book. I stayed up all night to the point of grabbing my magnifying glass once my eyes went all fuzzy. I loved the story line ! Some people have review they didn't like the aspect of the mom tuning in and spying on her daughter. Come on...what mother wouldn't like to peek into the life of her daughter?? I thought it was rather funny. Another r

This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were things I liked about and things that made me uncomfortable. Before this I had never actually read any books in which one of the primary characters was a clairvoyant. Add to that, both the male and female protagonist were devoutly christian and you have a book which is a bit of a departure for me. I don't really know why but I was more able to deal with the clairvoyance than the religious overtones.

I think there was a little too much going on

This one was sort of a mixed bag. I like that this one didn't rely on the usual cliches: a playboy cowboy who never wants to get married ever, the heroine needing to be rescued from an evil stalker ex, the hero teaching the heroine it's okay to trust men again. Instead, we have a woman whose gift of clairvoyance has been a curse rather than a blessing, and her Big Trauma was being unable to save a kidnapped child instead of a rape or a failed marriage. Loni was no Laura Townsend, but I liked her ...more

Quando iniciei a leitura deste livro estava muito entusiasmada, pois era um livro de uma autora que criou histórias pelas quais tenho uma carinho muito especial.
E inicialmente estava a gostar muito e mesmo quando cheguei ao fim o saldo foi positivo, mas a história não me encheu as medidas.

This book was disappointing, compared to the other Catherine Andersno books I've read. Since this book featured a clairvoyant, I expected to like it quite a bit, because I am drawn to paranormal stories, but I just wasn't drawn into these characters or circumstances. Loni, the daughter and granddaughter of gifted seers, didn't seem believable to me. She shouldn't have been an untrained bundle of nerves with two living generations of clairvoyants behind her. I thought, perhaps, there wasn't a way ...more

Morning Light is the first in a new series featuring the Harrigan family that is slightly connected to her Coulter Family series (the Harrigan daughter married a Coulter son in the last Coulter book). Clint is approached by Loni with the news that his son is in danger, lost in the Oregon wilderness, and he is the only person who can save him. Problem is that he doesn’t have a son. He doesn’t want to believe the beautiful woman has the second sight because it goes against all his religious belief ...more

Loni MacEwen was born with second sight but she had promised herself that she would not stir up the waters again with her visions after all the trouble she had in the past. That was until she saw Clint Harrigan's son in danger and he was the only one who could save him. Clint was not a stranger to her since she had dreamed about him since she was a child but she was definitely a stranger to him. First of all, he did not have a son, and second, his religion did not believe in visions.

For this series, this isn't my favorite but it isn't the worst. One change I noticed was that there was a lot of biblical references and faith was a huge part of the relationship between the hero and heroine. This is a huge change from Anderson books that I have read. I am not a fan of christian romance but this was ok because it wasn't overtly religious. However, it was enough to distract me from the story. The second-sight portion of the book was pretty interesting and the search for the boy w ...more

This was a fairly enjoyable light read. I didn't like it as much as Catherine's other books. I found it a little preachy on a few topics. I think it is enough to show, rather than outright spell out the values etc. I think she overcooked it in this book, telling us and showing us. Showing is enough.

Não é dos meus favoritos, muito religioso para mim mas claro que a história é bonita e o toque paranormal deu um tom diferente à história da Lone do Clinton e do Trevor. Mesmo assim gostei ;)
Apesar de gostar da familia Harrigan, ja sinto saudades dos Coulters.

I won't tell you about the book. It is one that you should read. Even though Loni is a clairvoyant, you feel like God is leading her with the help of her powers

Another slow burn but amazing story with a hint of paranormal. Love that CA mixes faith and God into her romances. It's like now a days it's a bad word or people are ashamed but this reader unapologetically loves God and loves he created romance and writers.
Clint and Loni were made for each other. I loved seeing them slowly fall for each other.

So much family and friendship connections as usual. Just adore this authors work.

Another good romance story from Catherine Anderson. This one is about Loni MacEwen who was born with second sight. But her visions have brought her heartache. When she meets Clint Harrigan, she knows she has to warn him of the impending danger for his son. Clint doesn't believe her. But he takes a chance and follows her lead to save the boy. A good read!!

Loni has dreamed of Clint her whole life. She has had a difficult life and when she actually meets him takes off. Then she decides to tell him of his son. A son he doesn't know he has. A son lost in the wilderness. Read and see how it all turns out.
Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the psychic thing..I just couldn't wrap my mind around it. Otherwise it's nice like all CA stories. <3

Fast paced

A lot of dialogue and interaction with main characters. Still kept my interest mainly because I have horses and have been trail riding around the country.
I just realized I've read this book before I guess when it came out but I'm enjoying the story so I'm going to reread this book.

I read reviews of this book before I bought it and I decided that I would wait to purchase it until I had extra money because most of the reviews were scathing and I found very few intelligent ones that had anything positive to say.
