Book Description

Grace Riley is on the run--from her past and from her fears. The victim of a violent rape at the hands of a rich politician's son, she must "disappear" to escape his constant attempts to recapture her. Moving from cattle drive to cattle drive as a cook, she avoids her tormentor for nearly twenty years. When she discovers that the brother she gave up for adoption after their mother died in childbirth was orphaned at an early age, she is frantic to verify that he's safe. She tracks him to a cattle ranch in Montana.



Widower Adam Morgan owns the Twin Springs ranch, but finds himself falling into a life of loneliness. Although he enjoys spending time with his grown daughter and the two men he rescued when they were living on the streets, he longs to meet a woman he can love. Living in the Montana territory where men greatly outnumber women makes finding a new wife difficult. Weary of working cattle, he is ready to make some changes in his life.



Grace falls ill on her journey, but she manages to make it to the Twin Springs ranch where her brother is supposed to be living. Adam takes her in, concerned for her health and the reason she's searching for one of his adopted sons. Their chemistry is immediate and intense, but can Grace heal from her past of pain and fear? When her secrets are finally revealed, can Adam forgive her deceptions and learn to love again?


**Contains love scenes and adult language.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a clean read- couldn't finish January 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried to see if any of the reviews mentioned graphic sex but if any did I missed them. It took a little while into the story before it came up but it did... a lot. I wondered if I could just skip those parts but it was all over in the story (there are two couples that it follows so twice the junk and descriptions). I also was uncomfortable with some of the language- they take the Lord's name in vain repeatedly- which should have been a major tip off this wasn't my kind of book. If either of those things bother you stay away from this title. I wish I had had the warning.

***A note to authors: sometimes in a description of a book on Amazon there will be a pre/post script that informs readers that a book contains sexual content or graphic dialogue, etc. I really appreciate that note- it helps readers and it helps authors because they won't get as many negative reviews from people who think they are getting one thing and end up with another. For instance, this one star review would never have been submitted if there had been such a warning because I never would have tried it out and then felt a responsibility to warn other like minded readers. I don't say this just to this author but to all, it really does help when selecting books to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Love Story June 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The American west setting isn't normally among the books I read, but I'm so glad I read this one. Saving Grace by Sandy James has it all, a H/e I immediately loved and could relate to, a nasty villain, and then there's the secondary love story.

Adam Morgan opens his door one day to find a half-starved, sick woman, and he takes her in and nurses her back to health. Of course, he falls in love with her, but Grace has secrets that she fears would turn Adam against her should he ever learn them. I loved Adam. He's just the kind of man I'd want to rescue me if I ever found myself in Grace's circumstances. Their love story kept me turning the pages of Saving Grace. Would Grace tell her her secrets? Would Adam understand?

Then, there's Matthew and Victoria. Grace's brother Matthew shows up and although drawn to Adam's daughter, Victoria, he's not quite sure what to do with her or about her. These two stumble their way along as they try to figure each other out, try to resist their attraction and sometimes manage it and sometimes fail. They were highly amusing.

Saving Grace is the perfect book to curl up with if you like your heroes to use the sense God gave them, to be sexy in a low key cowboy kind of way, and who stand by their woman no matter what.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming Historical! May 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Desperate to find her brother, Grace Riley arrives at the ranch of lonely widower, Adam Morgan, delirious with fever. Adam takes her in and cares for her, quickly realizing that she is the answer to his prayers. Despite having avoided men all her life, Grace feels surprisingly at ease with Adam, and when the reunion with her brother doesn't go according to plan, she is grateful for Adam's support. Grace is falling for Adam, but fears that their love will never survive the secrets in her past.
Sandy James delivers an enjoyable, well-written tale of love, deception, and eventual trust. A must-read for fans of historical romance!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saving Grace July 23, 2013
By Beth H
Format:Kindle Edition
On the run from her past, Grace Riley has known the life of a traveler. Jumping from cattle drive to cattle drive for work she still desperately searches to find the child she had to give up when she was only 15. Finding a lead sends Grace to Adam Morgan's Twin Springs ranch in Montana.

Arriving on Adam Morgan's door step racked with fever, Grace's life hangs in the balance. While Adam nurses Grace back to health a more intimate connection evolves. Adam was the man that had taken Grace's son in when his original adopted family died.

Can Grace ever escape the tragedy of her past and find happiness? If her secrets are revealed will Adam leave her forever?

This was an intriguing look at life when the west was a much harder place to live. Besides the lack of modern amenities, dealing with the social aspects of an unmarried woman living on a ranch was completely unexpected but the accuracy only added to realism the story line.

The chemistry between Grace and Adam was powerful and recognizable but watching them (especially Grace) struggle with their feelings made you feel like not just a by-stander but a participant in the plot.

As a side story, I can't help but mention that I immensely enjoyed the love/hate banter between Grace's brother and Adam's daughter.

Saving Grace was a wonderfully delightful story chuck full of family, friends and eventually healing but had enough suspense filled drama to keep you glued to the pages till the very end.

I received this copy of Saving Grace from Sandy James in exchange for a honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a wonderful story February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gracie was such a wounded woman who happened to stumble upon a tough but gentle ranch owner. Adam was taken with Gracie from the moment he opened his door that night. The author did a wonderful job of telling their story and letting Adam show Gracie that she deserved to be loved and help her heal. It was a beautiful story and full of danger...and family...and most importantly love. It was well written and the cast of characters were so easy to connect with. Highly recommend.
