ABOUT MAVERICK HEART
Nurse Levee O’Reilly and her husband, Dr. Liam O’Reilly, are headed west to the California Territory to practice medicine when their stagecoach is tragically attacked by the infamous Frank Michaels. All alone now and grieving, Levee makes her way to Eagle Pass, Texas. The local doctor cant afford to pay a staff nurse, however, and so she turns to the only other option -teaching. Devoted wholeheartedly to her students, Levee has little time for romance.
Daniel Neville has battled doubts and distrust for most of his life. Wracked with guilt over his twin sisters death and then punished with a limp from an injury sustained during a stampede, Dan dedicates himself to serving his family and working with horses on their ranch. Marriage is far from the top of his to-do list, and he aims to keep it that way. When a coincidental meeting brings Levee and Dan together, they’re awakened to a long ignored desire for love and acceptance by the realization that they might have finally found it. Can these two mavericks accept the plans God has for their lives?

“Maverick Heart” is book two in the Lone Star Legends Series. Book one is called “Beautiful Bandit.” I read and reviewed “Beautiful Bandit,” here is the review link if you would like to read it. http://thelifeandtimesofwanda.blogspot.com/2010/09/beautiful-bandit-by-loree-lough-book.html As with book one in the Lone Star Legends Series I really loved “Maverick Heart.” It is full of emotions, like love, loss, happiness, sadness and finally peace and forgiveness.
One of my favorite parts of the story is when Levee goes on a trail drive with Dan and his hands as the cook. She doesn’t let her being a woman get in the way of her doing her job. She becomes a great help and asset to the group of others.
Levee is teaching school and really loves it, but she is a nurse and she helps the town out when the doctor isn’t available. She never quits even when she is exhausted.
Dan loves his horses and brothers and cousins children. He thinks Levee is the most beautiful woman he has met. I like the way he says Levee’s eyes are the color of lilacs. I’ve never heard of that before and it just brings to mind such beauty.
Levee and Dan become friends and share many things in life about their past and the way they are going in the future.
I really like “Maverick Heart” and I recommend you read it if you want a very enjoyable time. It is a book that is easy to read and lots of fun, with some serious moments.
