Hart Richards has never found home.

Sure, he was raised in a house...but it was far from a home.

He thought he’d found it in the Army, only to have his world shattered along with his band of brothers.

Hart settled in a small-town in Montana until the inevitable happened.

The call he dreaded the

I know I've said this a few times before and I swear I've meant it each and every time, but really THIS is HJ Bellus' best book to date! HART! Oh, HART! I fell in love with his character since he first got introduced in book 2, Gravity (all books can be read as standalone novels!). I was STOKED when I found out he was getting his own book and well, HJ Bellus did NOT disappoint.

You see, Hart has this charming, easy-going, funny personality you can't help but connect and fall in love with. He is

"Nothing will ever change my mind about you. That's what love is."

Only one word could describe this book in its entirety...Gripping.
It grips your heart, your soul, and your deepest emotions. It holds onto you from the first page...and it truly doesn't let you go. It stays with you.

HJ Bellus has captured my heart once again with this tale of love, loss, and finding your true self. Right from the start you are taken for a ride. So, hold on to your socks!

When I first met Hart within this series, I

Such a wonderful read. H.J. Bellus is an amazing author and I expected nothing less than wonderful from this story.

I loved Vannie's thoughts, "Hart takes a seat on the couch on the opposite end from me stretching out his long legs. And I don’t know whether he * *** Ralph Lauren or not, but I do know it’s the sexiest scent on the planet." Hart is one crazy man, and I liked that he broadened Vannie's horizons:
“I’ve never really had pizza.”
I shoot upright on the mattress. My first instinct is to ask more questions, pushing the topic, but I tamp that down. “Well, that ****’s about to change.”
With Hart it's all

I absolutely love H.J and her writing. I have read most of her books and I have to say this one has become my favorite. She touched so many emotions with this book. It was extremely well written and had you hooked from the beginning to the end. I honestly want to make Hart my book boyfriend for life. To bad we cant clone him into a real person. Seriously Hart is just down right yummy. He has the biggest heart , cares no loves his mom like nothing in this world and loves hard. He would make any g ...more

The Traveller by HJ Bellus is the third book in this series.
Book one is Royal Atlas. Book two Gravity.
The Traveller can be read as stand-alone.
This is Harts story.
Hart Richards left his friend Cub, Cubs wife and kids and their co-owned Bedn Breakfast to tend to his terminal ill mother.
There in Nashville he meets his fate, his one, his soulmate.
The Traveller is a great read, a wonderful love story. This story has it all, great feelings, love, hate, pain- there is so much pain, two people with sca

Hart and Savanna..what a beautiful love story. What a beautiful, sad love story. I'm shocked that I didn't cry like a baby while reading this book. Although this book was sad..there was just enough happiness that I was okay. And that made me enjoy this book even more. And Izzy..missed little Amos😉 Great job HJ!

HJ Bellus paints beautiful fairy tales that I never want to end. It never fails, it always takes me longer to finish the last book in her series. Why? Because she develops the characters & stories so well, that you are living these stories right along with the characters.
Hart is one of the army brother's, great uncle by day & notorious playboy by night. Until his life gets turned upside down, when his mother finally succumbs to her illness. Hart returns home to help care for his mother

Oh going to give warning will need tissues reading this book! I personally love when reading a book and you can feel all the emotions...that is definitely what will happen with reading The Traveller. H.J. Bellus has done it again with her writing. This book will have you, swooning over Hart(my new book boyfriend), have you saying oh that girl Vannie is a strong one, and wishing you had an Aunt Peaches. I highly recommend this book the story line unique and I started reading and could n ...more

What a beautifully sad story. So much heartache with the same amount of happiness. This is the third and final book in the series. My favorite line is : "It saddens me to see such a happy soul being tortured by the cruel fate of life."
I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. The writing is good and the story is told through alternating pov's. This is the third book in a series although I didn't know this at the time and it isn't marked that way. I did not read the first two and feel that may be why I didn't really connect with this book. It also felt like it left a lot of things unresolved and unexplained. The whole Blake, Belle and his father issue never made any sense to me. This review contains mild spoilers.

If one word from the most important person in your life could make you drop everything else in your life without hesitation, would there be anything to hold you back?

What if the situation was opposite...what if you had no one in your life, no one that cared, what could make you stay?

For Hart the worst possible news has him dropping everything in his life to rush to the side of his dying mother. He's devoted to those he loves, quirky, fun loving, and loyal to a fault. (Wow when put like that...wh

What a great way to end the three books!! I didn't know how I felt about Hart. I felt like we got to know him, but not REALLY so I didn't know what to expect. I liked the book though!! I love that Stent & Guy & Molly & Gracie made an appearance too, though I do wish there was more of them in the book. I'd read it again and while it was my least fav of the 3 books, it was a solid read!

Painstakingly BEAUTIFUL

Hart and savannah have a story that wraps around your heart like little Izzy's fingers. There were so many emotions flowing that I couldn't put it down! I can't wait to read more by HJ Bellus <3

I fell in love with Hart Richards - from watching Izzy for Cub, to watching soap operas, to caring for his mother - he's a rugged man who isn't afraid to embrace his feelings.
I loved Peaches, his aunt - she was feisty and didn't take any shit!
Savannah Ray aka Vannie aka Shug - a fighter from her early years, she's strong yet hides her past not only from others but from herself as well.
The heartbreak, hurt, pain and devastation that both Hart and Vannie endure seeps from th

When two broken souls come together a magical love can bloom.

Bellus doesn't disappoint with this story of two shattered souls.

Hart and Vannie have lived through horrible things. Things that shape a person and break more than their heart. The things they both have lived through shattered their souls. Their love starts to heal these wounds and help them start to put their pieces back together.

Hart is an alpha male who loves to read about alpha males and smut. ;)

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. This book wow, I have been looking forward to this book for a while now and I was worried that I was going to be disappointed because I was so excited but HJ has blown be away yet again! This story was an emotional roller coaster of epic proportions. I have yet to read a book by HJ that I have yet to absolutely love. I highly recommend this book!
