Annie Campbell has made a good life for her and her young son in the mountain town of Tidal Falls. She's dating the sheriff, owns a successful business, and has the support of the community.
So why isn't it quite enough?
Jared Martin left Tidal Falls a hotheaded youth, and now, after eight years in the military, he returns a bitter, disillusioned man.
Then he finds out he's a father.
When an old enemy follows and causes mayhem in the small town, can Jared overcome the odds to protect the woman he's always loved and the child he never knew, or will it be too late?
The Rebel’s Redemption is the second book in the Wounded Hearts series. I haven’t read the first. While this book can be read as a standalone, I felt like I was missing a lot of backstory and would recommend reading book 1 first.
Jared, a Navy Seal, comes back home to his small town and discovers he’s a father and the mother of his child, Annie Campbell, wants nothing to do with him. Needless to say, Annie and Jared have a history. They have been friends for a long time. After one night of passion, Jared joins the navy and leaves Annie without a word.
After he returns they realize the passion is still there, and there is a child binding them together. Can they patch things up or are things past saving?
I loved the small town feel of this book. All the characters were well developed, and of course they knew each other’s business. The setting was well done, and I felt like I was a member of the community. This book is supposed to be a Suspense novel. However, that aspect of the book was a lot smaller than I expected. Yes, I know Romantic Suspense comes in many mixtures, but I wanted more suspense. The ending was predicable, but the good writing helped make up for that. The plot was solid, and I’m considering reading the first book in the series.
