The town superstar has just met his match
When retired Army Captain and Prairie’s favorite son, Sterling Walker, returns home to join Resolution Ranch, he finds himself face to face with his biggest rival- Emma Sinclaire, the sole daughter of Prairie’s oldest family- all grown up, gorgeous, and glaring daggers at him.
Will it be winner take all in this battle of hearts?
A rising star at Kansas City’s internationally acclaimed Royal Fountain Media, Emma agrees to personally oversee the marketing and fundraising campaign for Resolution Ranch. But she never expected to come face to face with her high school nemesis, Sterling Walker, let alone have to work closely with him. As they face off across the boardroom, she can’t deny her attraction to the smart, sexy, soldier who engages her in battle at every turn.
When a moment of carelessness threatens to shut down the fundraiser before it starts, Sterling will put everything on the line to protect Emma’s reputation. Will it be enough to win Emma’s heart for good? Or will the fallout be the ruin of Resolution Ranch?
Q&A About Resolution Ranch and the new Flint Hills Military Heroes Series
Q: What inspired this spinoff?
A: This spinoff was inspired by my relationship with Heroes & Horses, an organization in Montana that works with veterans. While this series focuses on veterans dealing with the aftermath of war, it's also about cowboys, ranching, and small-town life in the west. You'll still see your favorite characters from the Cowboys of the Flint Hills series.
Q: In what order should I read the books?
A: Each book in the series is a standalone novel with an HEA. There is overlap with some of the incidents in the Cowboys of the Flint Hills books. While they can be read in any order, I recommend they be read in the order of publication.
A Hero's Heart: Resolution Ranch (Flint Hills Military Heroes Book 2) by Tessa Layne
This is Sterling Walker and Emma Sinclaire’s story.
This is a great and beautifully written story. Sterling has issues that he hasn’t dealt with and promises to never marry after losing a good friend. He doesn’t want to put a woman through what his good friend’s wife and child is having to endure. Sterling returns home to Resolution Ranch and ends up working with Emma. Emma and Sterling go way back and he used to love teasing and aggravating her. He worries that he went too far and wants Emma to know that he has changed. Sterling’s friends used to tease him that Emma was the one that got away. Will Sterling stick to his vow to never marry or will he take a chance on finding true love?
I loved Sterling and Emma’s story. Their journey wasn’t an easy one but was an amazing ride. I enjoyed the supporting characters and their story too. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating awareness of grief after losing someone important and the issues that military personnel and their families deal with when getting back to life outside of the service.
FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
An Absolute Must Read!
This is an amazing story of love, loss and living your best life possible told through characters that pull on your heartstrings. This second book in the series continues to unfold the tales of Prairie's finest and resilient residents, military heroes and friends. The construction and establishment of Resolution Ranch, an establishment designed to give back to our brave men and women who have served our country through ranching, is the backdrop for Sterling and Emma's sizzling chemistry. What's not to love about two high school nemeses starting over as friends...with benefits?
Just like Tessa Layne's other books, this story is emotional and provocative and so well done that I am in awe. This is an important subject matter that is brought to the forefront in a beautiful romance. I recommend this book as a must read especially, if you are connected with anyone serving in the military. Oh, and have your box of tissues at the ready!
