Now & Forever (Wild at Heart #2) by Mary Connealy

Matthew Tucker survives a grizzly attack by jumping over a cliff into a rushing river. Unexpectedly, Shannon Wilde takes the plunge with him. Going through a series of waterfalls and rapids turns into a bonding experience.

By the time they battle their way back to civilization, Shannon has been thoroughly compromised, and only a wedding will do. A mountain man who loves to wander in the wilderness far from other people finds himself hitched to a young woman with a passel of relatives, a homestead, and a flock of sheep to care for.

As they learn to live with each other, strange things begin to happen on Shannon’s land. Someone evil clearly wants to drive them off, but whoever it is apparently didn’t count on Tucker. Trying to scare Matthew Tucker just makes him mad–and trying to hurt the woman he’s falling in love with sets off something even Matthew never expected.

I love this series.  The first book was so good and I have been anxiously awaiting this next book in the Wild at Heart series.  The series is based on three sisters who are acting as men to homestead following their service as soldiers in the war.  It's such a fun premise.  I love the setting and the characters

The book opens with Matthew Tucker being chased and attacked by a bear.  Shannon tries to save him and they both end up falling over the cliff into a river.  Tucker and Shannon are both engaging and smart characters.  They have a fantastic chemistry.  Shannon is perfect for Tucker.  She is strong and tough but also soft and tender.  Tucker loves her ability to shoot and wield a knife.  :)

Mary Connealy is one of my favorite Christian fiction authors.  She has the ability to write so I can create a movie in my head.  The places and people in this book are so easy to picture.  I love that.  This book is clean and not too heavy in the Christian aspect.  I can't wait to read the next book in the series!  One more sister to go and she just may be the toughest of them all.

My thanks to the publisher, Bethany House, for providing an ARC copy for review.
