As the man in charge at Ravenswood Ranch, Shane Nelson has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. His sculpted physique isn't the product of a gym, but of years of hard labor under a relentless sun. His straightforward, alpha tendencies come from a man who knows what he wants and goes after it.
And what he wants is Rachel Waters.
He's never stopped wanting her.
They were childhood best friends, then teenage lovers who evolved into soulmates. But on one fateful night, Shane made a grave mistake, breaking both their hearts in the process.
Now, after six years, Rachel is back in the small, wild mountain town of North Ridge, BC.
Ready to face her past.
Ready to face Shane.
Ready to face his dark secret.
But is a second-chance at a one true love in the cards? Or will their wild hearts be broken once again?
WILD CARD IS A COMPLETE STANDALONE NOVEL and the first book about the Nelson Brothers of North Ridge
This second chance story was all “feels” from the beginning. There are so many emotions swirling around all of the characters and the story. One night that changes the course of Rachel and Shane’s lives takes 6 years for the truths to finally be revealed. The story starts out with some angry and guilt laden emotions but soon the tone changes to nostalgia and then to acceptance and finally love. Shane has had to live with the decision that crushed Rachel and himself, now 6 years later she is back and they both need to come to terms with what happened and see what the future holds for them.
This is a story that reminds us that life is fleeting and love requires honesty and communication and that fate puts us into someone’s way for a reason, but that fate sometimes has other plans. Rachel and Shane had a forever kind of love.
“The love he had for me, the love I had for him - it was every breath, it hitched the moon in my sky.”
I was completely enthralled and absorbed in this story. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the North Ridge men.
