Banks Montgomery takes his job as youngest sheriff ever elected in Three Rivers very seriously; the residents of the small town are his family and he takes care of them accordingly. Along with his small horse breeding operation, he’s a man with a plan—one that doesn’t include the distraction of a woman, least of all one that turns up out of nowhere and isn’t what she seems ...more

This is a heartwarming, romantic and sweet. Banks is a man who is dedicated to his town, his family and his ranch, so much so that he doesn't have time in his life for anything or anyone else. Until Norah shows up in town, and he can't resist the pull of attraction. Norah is tough and resilient, especially after her boyfriend abandons her when he finds out that she's pregnant. Norah is welcomed to town by Banks and his entire family, and slowly falls in love with everything about Banks and the t ...more

After loving the first four books in this series, I admit that I am struggling with this one. For one thing, from the beginning, there is a lot of telling, but I am not feeling anything. Specifically, the Hero seems to fall INsta for the heroine, with no build up or real reason to. I find myself wonderingnwhat has even happened to make him interested yet, but apparently he is gaga already. Even more bothersome is that way this Insta plays out in regards to his personal character, personality and ...more

I just love how fate intervened and Norah is ditched by her douche bag boyfriend in a town where not only does is the community like one big family but happens to be the small town her Aunt lives in and where she grew up in for a short time when she was little. Banks is the sheriff he is all abut keeping the community safe as well as looking after his family and horses which means he has no time for love. You will fall in love with Noarah and Banks as they work their way through seeing what real ...more

This is Norah and Banks story it is on the longer side with the author going deep into character development. It is a sweet story about a young woman who had been abused and then dumped into the small town that she had once lived in. Taken in by the Montgomery family she starts to see that people can be kind and good. Love kind of sneak up on them, but like all good stories there are twists and turns right up to the end when one big secret prize is revealed. It was a good book and it was a pleas ...more

A jump-in-the-deep-end beginning through to a climactic ending. This story is a well written novel, with a convoluted storyline that keeps the reader hooked from page one.

The characters are written to be realistic, charismatic and emotionally gripping. The twists and turns of a wonderful background supports an equally wonderful cast of characters. With intrigue and romance, this book ticks a lot of boxes for the lovers of romance.

Norah’s Clarke’s boyfriend was a piece of work when he abandoned her in Three Rivers at a bar after he found out she was pregnant and he roughed her up. She would have gone with him and who knows what he would have happened to her if Layla hadn’t scaring him off with a bad and continuing to protect her even after the loser came back. Sheriff Banks Montgomery was so sweet, offering her a place to stay and job and falling in love with her and her unborn baby. His dog Crash and new foal Sailor were ...more

Norah dumped pregnant in a small town, by her lose boyfriend. Luckily she has an Aunt in this small town she lived in as a little girl.
Banks the sheriff, knew her in 5th grade, and takes her to his Nan's as her Aunt lives in a Home.
This is the story of a small town, it's up and downs, but mostly how they take you in and make you one of them.
You will wish they were your friends and family. A sweet fun read.

This book is a part of the Hearts of Three Rivers: The Montgomery's series. This is a new Author for me I found the story to flow smoothly from page to page and the characters to be believable. This is Norah Clarke and sheriff Banks Montgomery's story, of a man who thinks he does not have time for love because of all the responsibilities he believes he must do by himself. A very good story.

This book was well written. There was drama, heartbreak, love and heartwarming scenes which gave the book depth. I liked the slow build of chemistry between the main characters and the underlying familial connection from beginning to end.
