Catherine Anderson entertains once again with a story line that is not repeated in her other novels. She is great in reaching into the past, bringing it into the present and sprinkling the whole story with touches of the supernatural.
Easily read, engaging, and entertaining.

I disovered Catherine Anderson about a year ago, and can't get enough of her books. They are such beautiful stories that make you feel you are right there among the charactors. It's a rare thing when an author can do that. This book was no exception. You will laugh and cry with the charactors, and wish the book would never end.
Publishers Weekly, 2001-06-11 Anderson (Baby Love, etc.) departs from traditional romantic stereotypes in this poignant, contemporary tale of a love that transcends all boundaries. Handsome rancher and reputed rake Ryan Kendrick and the beautiful paraplegic Bethany Coulter seem an unlikely couple, but, after one date and a passionate kiss, Ryan can't stop thinking about Bethany. Bethany, on the other hand, has felt the sting of rejection far too often, and she's unwilling to become involved especially with a man who has a reputation. Once the two finally do come together, their lovemaking becomes the focus of the book. The lengthy scenes detailed here are hardly gratuitous, however, and readers will empathize with Ryan as he offers a heartfelt prayer to God regarding his intimacy with Bethany. This well-paced tale is largely a strong read, but certain elements Ryan is a millionaire and his family is just too good to be true seem forced and far-fetched. Although some readers may be hesitant to read a romance involving such a major physical disability, Anderson makes it not only plausible (with seemingly good research to back her story up) but romantic through and through.
