One of the hardest things I have ever had to do was bury my wife. 
The second hardest thing would be watching my 12 year old daughter fall to her knees as they lowered her mother into the ground to rest. 
A heart wrenching vision that will forever be etched in my mind.
Claire was my best friend, she had been since we were barely old enough to talk. I always knew, one day, I would marry her. I think I may have even told her that a few times while we were growing up. 
Never did I think I would lose her so suddenly.
I knew at that moment…

Our life would never be the same again…
“Climb up,” I said from behind her as she stood staring up at the horse only a few feet from her with a look of panic on her face. I was more than positive this was the closest this city girl had ever been to one. 
She peered back over her shoulder, and I almost laughed at how overwhelmed she looked. 
“I’m from the city,” she said with wide eyes, emphasizing her loss at what to do. “Ryan, you do understand that we have subways and taxis, right? We do not have horses that are the size of SUVs. I’m going to need a little help if you expect me—” She pointed toward her chest, then spun around to point at the horse. “—to get up on that thing.” 
Now I did chuckle. It was impossible not to. She was damn near panicking at the thought of how she would mount and then ride the horse. 
I stepped up behind her, my chest fitting flush against her back. Gripping her hips, I leaned my head closer and grazed my lips over her ear. Her body relaxed against mine, and she tilted her head to the side, opening up her neck to me. 
As I placed a kiss at the base of her neck, she shuddered in my arms. “You have to put your foot in the stirrups,” I whispered before kissing just below her ear. “I’ll lift as you pull yourself up.” 
She nodded with her eyes closed as her chest moved up and down in small pants. 
“Go on,” I urged. 
I lifted her as she gripped the saddle, and she yelped when I firmly placed her atop Storm, my father’s Oldenburg stallion. Jackson held him steady as I pulled myself up and took my spot behind Amber. Our bodies were so close together I could feel her ragged breaths as she shifted against me with each one.

 

review enticing
The very beginning is so sad, and I hate that I can totally relate on some levels, losing someone you love is so hard and moving on is so hard. The author did a great job of bring the emotions out of me and I could really feel how they felt. Even though I didn’t like how it started it did need to start that way so we can feel how Ryan feels, and how hard it is to go on and raise their Daughter when his wife dies. Great job to the author.
After three years Ryan knows he needs to move on with his life, he has a great daughter that reminds him every day of his deceased wife, she is just like her mom.
Amber kind of inherited her grandmother’s bakery, she needed a new fresh start in another town, tired of the city life, her and her BFF moved to Montana to open the bakery. Amber has gone to culinary school and she will be able to use her skills in the bakery.
I also loved how she introduced each character how they each talked about what was going on, the story, their feelings. I feel in love with this family and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. This is going to be an awesome series. I think the Sawyer Family sounds awesome.
C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
