THE HERO OF HOPE SPRINGS by Maisey Yates
Maisey Yates wrote an intense, emotional, amazing love story in The Hero of Hope Springs, part of her Gold Valley series.
For as long as Ryder Daniels has known free spirit Sammy Marshall she has been his sunshine. She and her bright smile has saved him after losing his parent and has given him the strength to take care of his orphaned family. It was a lot, especially emotionally, for an eighteen year old, ready to fly from the nest, to deal with.
Only Ryder knows that the person Sammy appears to be is an act; she is vulnerable and broken. He has kept his attraction for his best friend a secret for years. Sammy loves living a bohemian, arty life style and came to Hope Springs to escape the abuse from her father and lack of protection and love from her mother. There she found a home and a family that loved her.
Yet, all this time, Sammy believes something is missing from her life and asks Ryder to help her. She soon learns that asking Ryder to father a child with her is complicated; especially when the heat between them ignites a spark, setting off fireworks. Not to mention the sizzling chemistry and electricity pouring off them.
As potent as Ryder is, you know he will get Sammy pregnant the first time, before she decides to change her mind; which of course happens. Discovering Sammy is pregnant, Ryder informs her he wants it all. The fallout from her parents’ abusive relationship, Sammy is fearful of letting Ryder too close. Ryder is going to need a few grand gestures to convince Sammy that he’s not proposing because he feels honor bound. Sammy is going to need to learn to trust herself, her feelings, and Ryder.
Ms. Yates wrote a wonderful, intense, emotional and sizzling story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with magnetism, chemistry, and charming characters giving Ryder and Sammy a chance to find that happily ever after. I highly recommend The Hero of Hope Springs to other readers.
