Dr. Ben Kincaid is content to spend his days and nights treating the people of Hidden Springs. Not even his closest friends know the heartbreak that haunts him. Ten years earlier his wife left him, taking their only child with her. Ben vowed to never again trust anyone with his heart.
Shiloh Bishop came to Hidden Springs looking for a fresh start. Having been forced into an arranged marriage with an older man, she’s lived a life of misery. When she finds herself suddenly widowed and expecting her first child, she looks forward to starting a new life.
Ben is captivated by Shiloh the first moment he sees her but he is unwilling to let go of the chains of mistrust that are wrapped around his heart. Shiloh is determined to rebuild her life and has no intention of ever becoming another man’s wife.
When a deadly illness strikes the town, they have no choice but to rely on each other. Admiration and respect soon turn to passion, but will it be enough for them to take a chance on love?
I have to admit that this is the first book that I read from this series and I really liked it.
Ben is the only physician in Hidden Springs, he's great to his patients and a loyal friend, he's also somewhat of a loner. No one knows Ben's past regarding his wife and daughter, they just think that he likes to be on his own.
One day, that changes when Shiloh Bishop arrives in Hidden Springs.
Shiloh comes trying to start a new life after his abusive much older husband passed away. Shiloh is pregnant and plans to raise her baby on her own. She soon makes friends with some of the ladies in town and after meeting Ben they dance around their attraction, neither one of them wanting to take their friendship to the next level. But when a terrible illness takes over the quiet little town and Shiloh becomes Ben's right hand things start changing for these two.
This is a sweet historical romance with a heartbreaking back story when it comes to both of the main characters. I'm very picky when it comes to these kind of stories but this one will pull you in right away and you won't be able to stop reading. It has very likeable characters, the secondary characters are a great addition to the story. Even though I didn't read the first 3 books I didn't have any problems understanding the back stories, but if you want the full effect I recommend you read the complete series. I promise you won't regret it, it's a well written book with some very emotional moments.
