He could never live with himself if her reputation was to be tainted by a man like him. What threatened to undo her was the sheer burning desire she felt in his presence, and the sinking feeling that her heart would be his captive forever. I did find it a bit of a stretch that a 16 year old boy went to prison for 15 years for killing his abusive father when both he and his sister were beat bloody. Disappointing, when authors use secondary characters as mere hero props. He went to prison for fifteen years. Or if he hadn't saved three lives in just 200 pages a rape, a heart-attack and a fire. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.
They were perfect for each other. También está el padre de Rebecca, Daniel el cura, y digamos que la humildad y la capacidad de perdonar no están entre sus cualidades. Even when both of them confess their feelings for each other, Jackson keeps a part of himself aloof. Four bare walls and a floor that matched. Unfortunately, the whole of the book's character development is engineered in this bloodless sort of way. I'm glad that he has Rebecca and other loved ones to do that for me. .
Her father, the preacher, is a more realistic portrayal of a preacher as a failable man not all goody two shoes as many preachers are written. Summary Jackson Rule had spent nearly half his life behind bars for murder. As the taste rolled across his tongue, he groaned with satisfaction. No one until Rebecca, that is. Rebecca Hill is grateful and hires him when he shows up at her nursery. She is a proud owner of green house- her striving business.
He started to close the door when the man abruptly stuck his shoe in the crack. I like to think that a person should be given a clean slate in life. She calls out her father on his hypocrisy. The first edition of this novel was published in 1996, and was written by Dinah McCall. Laughter filtering out of an open doorway. I read Harlequins by the milk crate.
Lest I ever wonder what anybody might be thinking at any point, she liberally hops from head to head to let me know. All books are pre-owned and will have been read by someone else before you. Their attraction grows reluctantly to love.

In this story we have Jackson Rule who has just finished his 15 year sentence in jail for killing his father. Its the message behind this book that got to me and i took it in to my heart.
Jackson, just freed from the jail where he stayed for the murder he committed. The E-mail message field is required. I never would have in a million years predicted the outcome and I wondered how everything was going to come out. In contemporary New Orleans, a cynical ex-convict with a marshmallow heart falls for a warm-hearted, strong-minded, red-haired preacher's daughter named Rebecca. Based on reviews I expected to love it and I did fall pretty hard for the hero Jackson but due to the high cheese factor and melodramatics of the heroine I can only give it 3 stars. In his haste to get on with his plans, he practically inhaled the last three beignets on his plate and washed them down with a large cup of steaming coffee.

He lowered his lips and she forgot to move. No one wants to hire an ex-con. I first read this book many years ago now and was totally wowed.
El de su padre, un ser violento y desalmado que no se merecía otra cosa… Jackson, que vuelve a su pueblo porque allí está aún su hermana, ingresada en una institución, y necesita estar cerca de ella. The preacher father will disapprove of Jackson then have a crisis of faith over being judgemental. I was surprised at how narrow-minded and judgmental Rebecca's reverend father was. Once she begins working with this silent, dark eyed taciturn man, she realizes there is more here than meets the eye. Live oaks, thick with Spanish moss, shaded most of the sidewalks within the city.
