"As Aunt Ginger once said,'You can't get close to God with bitterness wedged in between you and Him'."

Aiden Weaver has settled into life as a single dad, raising his two young daughters while juggling his job as a car salesman at Weaver Dodge in his small South Carolina town. When finagled into purchasing tickets for the Shiloh New Year's Eve Ball, he never expected to meet the very woman whom one of his customers had already hinted would be a good match.

Sweet, funny, romantic, but not full of meaningless fluff. I smiled, snickered, and sniffed my way thru Hearts Desire, but I loved every page. I want to read it again.

Boy! I'm from the South but if I had a mama like Jaime I think I just might have to move to the other side of the country! Bailey was a saint for putting up with her and her shenanigans and then getting called out for disrespect! Haha okay, that wasn't even what this books was about but I had to get it off my chest. :) On the same vein, however, there were times I wanted to slap the characters, but that just makes them real, right (because real people do stupid things too and you want to shake t ...more

This is the first contemporary novel I've read by Ms Boyd. The story is well written, the characters believable and realistic. Overall I enjoyed it!

I always enjoy reading Andrea Boyd. She has a way of making you cheer for the good guy and cheerfully hating the bad. Heart's Desire is a sweet holiday book and one that will warm your heart.

There were parts of this book that had me laughing out loud even after reading it for the hundredth time. I know, not everyone has my same sense of humor, but my hope is that you'll at least get a few grins out of reading it.
Happy Reading!

Heart's Desire was another book that stood out favorably to me in its overall appearance.  I don't judge books by this, but do certainly take note when the author appears to have gone to extra trouble with the formatting.  The dividers between non-chapter divisions were large enough graphics to be distinguishable and the author was not afraid of using space to allow you to know that the next section was to be set apart from the previous one.  Well done, Andrea Boyd.  :-)

Aiden is raising two little girls after his wife abandoned them all. Bailey is trying to put her life back together after her husband decided he loved someone else. All she ever wanted was someone to love and a family to take care of. Jamie, Bailey’s meddling mother, is determined to find a husband for Bailey because no woman is complete without one.
Can Bailey overcome her struggles with trusting a man after her husband left and a subsequent boyfriend was later found to be a married man? Can Ai

Heart's Desire, written by Andrea Boyd, is the first contemporary romance I've read by this author.
This is an excellent book to encourage forgiveness in our lives. Both Bailey and Aiden needed to learn what true forgiveness is about and through great struggles both characters were able to learn that forgiveness is not about the act of doing it for others, but the act of doing it to heal your own self.
I struggled with liking Bailey sometimes as she came across as a bit weak, although it was main

I love reading southern romances as I now live in the south! This one is terrific! Bailey's mom, Jamie is a real piece of work, and Bailey handles the situations beautifully, with love and forgiveness. I wish I had read this years ago, I learned a lot from her!
The love story is one I will never forget, through past pains and struggles these two individuals come together and find a way to forgive their past and move toward!

This story is about family and love and the ups and down of both. A good story that will make you laugh and cry. If you are looking for a good and entertaining read this is it. Also has a great storyline about forgiveness that hit very close to my home. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to my daughter reading it so then I can say "see I'm not so bad".

Enjoyable read

I rely enjoyed this book. This is my first this author. It was easy to get into, tells a great story, and she followed through on the plots and storylines. I really appreciated her use of the Scripture throughout. Will look for more of her work.

Bailey & Aiden are two very lost souls with much baggage. Heart’s Desire is the story of how they deal (sometimes badly) with all that baggage and manage to come out whole on the other side. The surprise at the end had me laughing out loud too!

I received this book as a gift from the author.
