Book Description


But it wasn't the way she'd envisioned her return. And though all she wanted was to be alone, infuriatingly handsome Dr. Jake Dalton—of the enemy Daltons—wouldn't cooperate. And she needed him to, because the walls around her heart were dangerously close to crumbling every time he came near….

Jake had spent most of his life trying to get closer to Maggie, with little to show for it. But she was the woman he'd always wanted, and no injury in the world could change that. Now if only he could convince her that the woman who stood before him was beautiful, desirable, whole…and meant to be his….

4.0 out of 5 stars the overwhelming lengths love can overcome September 22, 2009
By Jenn
Format:Kindle Edition
RaeAnne Thayne has written an unconventional tale with familiar overtones. Dancing in the Moonlight is a continuance of her Cold Creek series and brings us Maggie Cruz - an Army nurse, stationed in Afghanistan. After receiving a life changing injury, she is forced to return home - a home that is now unfamiliar to her. When she meets Dr. Jake Dalton the story begins to heat up, but many uncertainties remain for Maggie. With her leg now gone - and using a prosthesis - how can he possibly be interested in an intimate relationship? At first, she believes she will be nothing more than a patient of Dr. Dalton, but as the story unfolds, we learn the strength of human nature and its willingness to overcome all obstacles. This is a wonderfully heart warming story that showcases the strength of true love. The book reminded me a lot like JoAnna Wylde's memorable novel Price of Freedom: Price of Freedom in that both books show the overwhelming lengths love can overcome. I highly recommend them both.

4.0 out of 5 stars We are more than just the limbs that support us October 3, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I read the Kindle edition in one day and really enjoyed it... and it was a free book. Can't beat that! My one complaint is the title is so misleading, it does the book a disservice.

Magdalene Cruz is a former soldier/nurse who loses a foot in a bomb blast in Afghanistan. Her amputation is from the knee down. Leaving Walter Reed hospital with her prosthesis, a broken heart and broken engagement to a surgeon, Maggie goes back home to her family's ranch in Idaho to recuperate. She goes with the intention of hiding out while she comes to terms with her lot in life, but when she arrives she finds her feisty 5-foot tall widowed mother running their ranch all by herself, having recently lost her right-hand man. Maggie knows she needs to quit feeling sorry for herself and pitch in. The little bits of Spanish dialogue between Maggie and her Mom, were very realistic and enjoyable for me, as I speak the language. I could completely relate to how we talk to each other, like all moms and daughters in any language. I chuckled at their interaction several times.

Maggie quickly encounters a childhood friend, Jake Dalton, who is the town Doctor, and has always had a thing for her. She wants to be left alone but he makes a pest of himself, worrying about her pain. He is such a good person, and a hottie to boot, she has to work at staying angry with him.

Although the plot line is predictable, it is written well, and the characters are engaging and totally likeable. I didn't realize this was in the romance genre until the end, which I don't usually read. I'm glad I didn't know that, as I find most of them superficial. This is is not a sad depressing read, there is wit and humor here as well, and it does show us that there is more to our spirit than just what our limbs hold together, and that if we're given another chance at life, we have to grab it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I get a different book than everyone else? November 15, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was not a quaint and loveable read. It was terrible. This is the first book in many, many years I couldn't finish, and believe me, in my line of work I've read a lot of crap.

The book had a lot of potential...the hero was sweet and kind (the best kind in my opinion). However, the heroine was whiny. I understand she was hurt and she's adjusting to a MAJOR life change. However, during the entire book (what I read of it anyway--about 93% on the Kindle...but I also skimmed HUGE sections, mostly everytime it went to the heroine's POV), she whined about two things she needed to let go of. It was not the hero's fault her father died. Even before the grand revelation near the end that her father's own stubborness had caused his death, she should have been mature enough to know that Jake (the hero) was not responsible and she needed to let the grudge go. Second, it seemed she was the one who couldn't accept her amputation, therefore, she was using it as an excuse for why he wouldn't accept her. As I said before, I understand feelings of not being whole, however, I didn't get the strong vibe the author was trying to portray by her doing things she had no business doing, or her constantly feeling sorry for her. It seemed to me like a giant pity party...not that she'd matured and accepted fate.

She didn't deserve him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Lovestory February 9, 2011
By Alice V
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I normally don't read anything to do with westerns, cowboys, ranch-living, etc but Maggie's background in the Army enticed me to read the summary and then, the book. I loved this book from beginning to end. Brought me close to tears a few times and the characters were well developed. Loved it so much that I am going to read more from this brilliant writer!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read July 21, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story of Jake and Maggie was very well told. Ms. Thayne obviously did her research into the physical, emotional, and a psychological problem faced by person's who loose a limb as well as those who care for them. Too often I find works dealing with such issues fail to integrate the problem seamlessly into the story line. Not so with this work. With few exceptions the thoughts and actions of both Jake and Maggie were believable, consistent and realistic. This was an enjoyable read. I am looking forward to reading more works by Ms. Thayne.
