Alone on her farm in the middle of a blizzard, young widow Lisa McAllister labors to give birth to her first child. Help arrives in the form of a stranger with a six-gun. Lisa has no reason to trust this man who makes a living by violence, even if he is on the right side of the law. Men and their guns have already claimed the lives of her father, brother, and husband, and she’s determined to protect her son at any cost.
Jared Tanner, a security agent for the stagecoach, has been on his own since he was twelve. With Lisa and her baby, he’s finally found something worth fighting for – a family of his own. But a fresh wave of violence threatens to tear them apart. Can their new love survive?
Harvest of Dreams is a wonderful story of a woman whose fear to love almost cost her the man of her dreams. Alison Henderson brought a story that has everything a person could ask for in a love story.
Lisa McAllister is a widow finding herself giving birth to her son on Christmas Eve in the presence of Jarad Taner a man who knows how to use a gun. Lisa’s husband was a sickly man who, in his last ditch effort to make her happy with their marriage, left her pregnant and alone with her mom.
When Jared walked into Lisa's house he wasn't sure what to expect. All he knew was that this beautiful woman was alone and needed his help and protection. Jared was used to protecting people since he was a child and could do nothing to help his mother—he swore never to feel useless again. Lisa saw that Jared was a man who had a hard side but she also knew that the soft side of him was the one that she fell in love with, and the one that she wanted to protect. She wasn't willing to give up peace for love.
Through the danger of the unsavory characters of train robbers and stage coach robbers, Jared wanted a life with Lisa, but Lisa had already seen what guns could do and the damage they cause. She wants Jared but is she willing to put her fear aside to take what she wants?
This book is rated a 5 and a heat rating of 2. This is the first time that I have read Alison Henderson but it definitely won't be the last. She writes from a view that has you inside her stories, living the lives and feeling the emotions.
