Laura Moore Once Touched Romance Book Review
Once Touched (Silver Creek #3)
The youngest of the three Knowles siblings, Quinn has in her blood the love of the land and its beautiful creatures. Raising enough money to build an animal sanctuary is a dream Quinn lives every day—while fending off her family’s well-intentioned matchmaking schemes. Though harboring secret fears about intimacy, Quinn soon realizes she cannot fight her growing attraction to a man who has suddenly entered her life.
Scarred by his months in Afghanistan and the violence he witnessed there through his camera lens, photojournalist Ethan Saunders throws himself into hard ranching work as a prescription for healing. But falling for Quinn has given him the one thing he thought he’d lost forever: hope. Ethan discovers that Quinn, like the innocent animals she rescues, is shy, and afraid of entrusting her heart to a man. Passion soon awakens Ethan’s strength, and his tender seduction may be just what Quinn needs to believe in herself—and in his love.(less)
This was a lovely and heart-warming story. I had not read a “Western” type of book in years but couldn’t wait to read this one. Quinn has a heart of pure gold and her character is one to be admired. She has this wonderful gift for caring for abused and neglected animals and it will really touch your heart. But, Quinn has yet to me Mr. Right.
Then we meet Ethan. Sigh…I absolutely loved this character from the minute he was introduced. He has been through so much. When Quinn is asked to pick him up and to care for him, oh my goodness, the chemistry is steamy, but both of them seem oblivious! LOL!
Once Touched was the first book that I have read by author Laura Moore but, will certainly not be the last.
This is a “feel good” type of love story that I promise you will love.
