Bumping into her ex-fiancé shatters Millie Wilson all over again. Now that she's back in Montana to care for her dying father, her real burden is the secret she's never divulged to Hunter McKaslin.
Millie can't blame Hunter for his anger upon learning he's a father. He's never gotten over opening his heart, only to have it broken. Yet Millie senses a new goodness in Hunter. Finding their lost dreams now seems possible—if forgiveness and trust can find a place in this fresh start.
I can see why Jillian Heart is a USA Today bestselling author! This is only the second book I've read by Hart but I am hooked! Scrambling to catch up with the rest of this series, I love it that much.
The author has created a memorable cast of characters -- a big, mildly dysfunctional family that doesn't quite meet the norm. The McKaslin Clan definitely got my attention. I read Luke's story in Montana Cowboy earlier this summer (and see I forgot to post my review during my computerless state) and just couldn't wait to get back to Montana for another McKaslin fix so I shouted with glee when I discovered Montana Dreams was already out. Especially since Montana Cowboy expertly set up Hunter's story with a tantalizing tease.
And this book packs quite a punch. Millie hasn't had an easy life. She has reasons for the decisions she has made in the past and, while we don't know her full story from the beginning -- I mean really, how can a woman hide the paternity of her child in good conscience?-- Hart did an excellent job of making me sympathetic to Millie's plight. My loyalty grew as pieces of the past were gradually revealed. Loved that build of emotional momentum that peaked at just the right time.
And Hunter. He was such a grump in the previous book I couldn't wait to get under his skin! Taciturn and reserved, his views on love and matrimony are not what romance novels are made of -- unless they happen to be authored by Hart. Hunter's back story is captivating, as is the internal struggle in evidence every time he is around Millie.
A dream of a book you won't want to miss and you don't have to because...
