Lizzie Howard has always been focused on her career as an emergency room trauma doctor. But when family stress causes her to make a terrible mistake she is forced to take leave from the hospital. That’s how she ends up covering her best friend’s maternity leave at the Jewell Cove family practice. Coming home to Jewell Cove was just what Josh Collins needed after the death of his wife. He needed time to process his loss as well as the shambles of his marriage and being a doctor in a small town practice is a perfect fit for him. As Lizzie and Josh work together they find themselves drawn to each other and before long they are in a passionate relationship. If only they can both let go of their fears and find the love waiting for them.

 

Summer on Lovers’ Island is the first book in the Jewell Cove series that I’ve read but I immediately went out and bought them all! I’ve been missing out on a treat. I adored Josh and Lizzie, wanting them to figure out what I already knew, they were perfect together. Donna Alward delivers a sweet and emotional trip, with characters that drag you into their world and make you never want to leave. Readers can’t go wrong here!

Clay Gregory's known Megan Briggs her whole life, and he's been plenty worried about her while she's been getting medical treatment. Now she's back home and hiding away on the family ranch. Knowing the stubborn cowgirl won't accept his help willingly, he invites her to a family wedding to help him avoid his aunt's matchmaking! He plans to remind Meg she's still the girl who can beat him in a horse race! But as she steps out in her curve-hugging red dress, her skills on a horse are suddenly the furthest thing from his mind….

Megan Briggs has just returned to her family ranch after being gone for the better part of a year. She left the ranch to have medical treatments and she has distanced herself from all those she grew up with. She is basically hiding out on the family ranch working on her physical strength while ignoring everyone else. Or at least she tries until Clay Gregory shows back up. Now Clay is trying to bring out the woman he knew.

But can Clay overcome his past? And can Megan believe in the strong woman she has become or will she only focus on the changes that have taken place in the last year?

Ms. Alward took an important but sensitive subject (breast cancer) and handled it with skill and compassion. In How a Cowboy Stole Her Heart we are able to see not only the insecurities of Megan, and how she is trying to keep everyone from seeing what she is really feeling, but also how a good man, Clay, is doing everything he can to overcome his fears, and to also let his love show. How a Cowboy Stole Her Heart is a touching and heart wrenching love story.
