Overview

2014 (c)Desert Rose RWA(r) Golden Quill Award Winner, Contemporary Romance

"Nancy Herkness welcomes readers back to Sanctuary, West Virginia, where family loyalty leads to sparkling love, with the help of a whisper horse."

When sheltered artist Julia Castillo flees her hometown, she has just one goal: to prove to her overbearing family once and for all that she can make it on her own. After she moves to Sanctuary, West Virginia, her horse paintings take the art world by storm. Yet Julia finds her courage tested as never before by her love for a handsome country lawyer, by her bond with a dangerous black stallion, and by the secret she is so desperate to keep.

Paul Taggart abandoned his high-powered legal career to return to Sanctuary, giving up his own dreams to care for his troubled brother. But the day he rescues Julia Castillo from the side of the highway, his staid, responsible life changes forever. Irresistibly drawn to the fiery but unsophisticated beauty, Paul will do anything to protect her even sacrifice his own happiness to guarantee hers.

Dramatic and emotional, "Country Roads" is a heartwarming tale of two people trying to balance the bonds of family with a passionate love of their own.

Julia Castillo is stranded on a dusty road, just three miles outside of the small West Virginia town of Sanctuary, where she hopes to reconnect with the first gallery owner who believed in her equestrian paintings. Luckily, lawyer Paul Taggart can’t resist a damsel in distress, so he picks her up, delivers her well-received art, and then proceeds to sweep Julia off her feet. Paul is determined not to get attached to Julia because his family responsibilities prevent him from leaving Sanctuary. Julia wants to change Paul’s mind, but she’s scared to reveal a medical condition that could make him treat her differently. Julia and Paul’s romance is fun and the book moves along at a nice clip, but Herkness’s second Whisper Horse contemporary (after Take Me Home) relies a bit too much on her goofy premise that every person has a special horse who becomes their confidant, and there’s no clear reason why Julia’s medical history should hold her back from a normal life. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Sept.)
