ABOUT THIS BOOK
Will Gold Valley’s most honorable cowboy finally claim the woman he’s always wanted?
For as long as brooding cowboy Ryder Daniels has known Sammy Marshall, she has been his sunshine. Her free spirit and bright smile saved him after the devastating loss of his parents and gave him the strength to care for his orphaned family. Only Ryder knows how vulnerable Sammy is, so he’s kept his attraction for his best friend under wraps for years. But what Sammy’s asking for now might be a step too far…
Something has been missing from Sammy’s life, and she thinks she knows what it is. Deciding she wants a baby is easy; realizing she wants her best friend to be the father is…complicated. Especially when a new heat between them sparks to life! When Sammy discovers she’s pregnant, Ryder makes it clear he wants it all. But having suffered the fallout of her parents’ disastrous relationship, Sammy is wary of letting Ryder too close. This cowboy will have to prove he’s proposing out of more than just honor…
Beautifully crafted characters, a wonderful setting, and a romance that will make your heart beat right out of your chest, and you've got THE HERO OF HOPE SPRINGS by Maisey Yates.
Sammy Marshall is spontaneous and bright, always jumping into situations and thinking later, and after her abusive childhood, she deserves to do things whatever way she wants to. So when she decides she wants to have a baby, it doesn't exactly shock those that love her, especially her best friend Ryder. Ryder has and always will be her protector and his family became her family many years ago, so it's only natural that she asks his help in finding a suitable man for her. But when the atmosphere shifts between them it may just open up their eyes to possibilities that could change everything ...
Ryder knows what it's like to lose someone you love and he has dedicated his life caring for his family, and Sammy whom he has always protected. But when Sammy suggests having a baby with a stranger it opens up the floodgates to the feelings he has buried deep inside for so many years. But can he convince Sammy that this heat between them could work long-term and that she can trust him with her heart?
Romantic, sweet, sexy, emotional, are all words that I would use to describe this enjoyable story. While it is part of a series, THE HERO OF HOPE SPRINGS can easily be read as a standalone novel, but trust me when I say that this book will leave you wanting to read them all!
Sammy is a wonderful character who is trying to come-to-terms with her past and is afraid to open herself up completely to what could be between her and Ryder. She is strong and independent but also vulnerable when it comes to believing in love, and I wanted her to trust herself and Ryder in their new relationship. Ryder is a solid character who has always put everyone else's needs before his own but letting his feelings show for Sammy is the first step in Ryder going after his own dreams and I wanted him to reach for the stars again.
THE HERO OF HOPE SPRINGS by Maisey Yates is a first-rate romance and I cannot wait to read everything that Maisey has written as I'm definitely a huge fan.
Maisey Yates started writing stories from the moment she first learned how to form words with a pen. But she never had any idea what to write, and most stories sat started, half formed and half finished, but never completed.
During her high school and college years she spent a lot of time dreaming about holding a book in her hands that had her name emblazoned across the front, but she did a lot more dreaming than actual writing.
At her very first job she was fortunate enough to meet her very own tall, dark and handsome hero, who happened to be her boss, and promptly married him and started a family. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with her second child that she found her very first Harlequin Presents in a local thrift store. She’d never read a Harlequin romance before, and by the time she’d reached the happily ever after she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write!
Soon after that she saw online that Harlequin was running a competition to win an editor for a year. She decided that was her sign to get in gear and start writing again. So she wrote her chapter and synopsis and hit send with trembling hands. She didn’t get any feedback from the contest, but it was the boost she needed to get her first full manuscript finished and submitted to Presents.
Nearly two years later, while pregnant with her third child, she received The Call from her editor, informing her they wanted to buy that manuscript. She was very glad that the good news didn’t send her promptly into labor!
She still can’t quite believe she’s blessed enough to see her name on, not just any book, but her favorite books.
Maisey lives with her supportive, wonderful, diaper-changing husband and three small children across the street from her parents, and the home she grew up in, in the wilds of Southern Oregon.
She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your back porch and then heading into the home office to write stories that take place in exotic, urban locales.
