About the Author
A.C. Wilson lives in Abilene, Kansas with her husband, two sons, and their chocolate lab. She loves to be outdoors, playing with her boys and absolutely loves to write. The Black Hills Series came from her mother’s idea to use Hot Springs, South Dakota as a home town for the Johnson family. Everything about the Black Hills is enchantingly rugged and of course, there are cowboys! Check out her young adult contemporary romantic series. Black Hills Angel (Book 1), Black Hills Blessing (Book 2), Black Hills Rebel (Book 3), Black Hills Secrets (Book 4) and Black Hills Forever (Book 5 coming Summer 2015). Four novellas will also accompany this series as Black Hills Seasons presents the stories of the supporting characters that readers have requested. Watch for them in late 2015 or early 2016.

I have followed Author A.C Wilson since I was gifted Black Hills Angel to review. I have a secret hankering to be a cowgirl - ride the plains, mountains on the back of a horse and reading this series is an escape into that world for me.
In this story the book features on Blake Phails, who is struggling with the death of his brother-in-arms. He is desperately choking back the guilt of not dying and now must face the emptiness of the world alone.
Seriously if you are not sobbing reading some of the stuff in this book like I was, then you have a tougher heart than mine.
I know first hand the trauma of what war does to men, and their struggle when they return home and I think this book really puts those struggles at the forefront of your mind, makes you consider how lucky we are to have the boys and girls in our armed services keeping us safe.
God I am choking up writing this! I read this book a while ago and have struggled writing the review because its a raw and emotional read for me.
This passage - well I was sobbing so hard, it still makes me tear up!
Deep, gut-wrenching sobs caused him to choke and gasp for air as he lay curled up on his side next to the freshly mounded dirt.
The depth of his grief knew no bottom and even that didn’t terrify Blake Phails as much as going through the
rest of his life without his best friend. He opened his mouth swallowing a cry of utter torment as his fingers dug into the wet earth of the grave site.
His loss of a brother-in-arms had created more chaos than two tours in Afghanistan.
It threatened to uproot the foundation he’d built in the United States Army and
cast him aside like a piece of unwanted rubbish.
Blake has never known who his father was until his mother gives him a photo, there was a date and a town in South Dakota written on the back. Hot Springs.
Blake is lost so he makes his mind up to check out the town and find out who the man is in the picture.
When he gets there, he rescues a damsel in distress, fixes her Tyre for her, he is left wanting to know her more.
There is more to Bailey than first impressions show, heaven for her is the wide open spaces on the back of her horse, Liberty. ( See why I love these books - Horses are my heaven if the world is falling around me - on the back of a horse the stress and worry fall away)
The closest I got to riding the range was in Southland NZ - wow the fun I had there mustering sheep and deer and cattle!
Bailey has been striving for her independence but her stepfather reels her back in by using her half-sister as bait. He is vicious and abusive.
She tries to be strong, but sometimes you need to let someone in that can help you win the fight.
I recommend this series wholeheartedly - whether you read this book first or in order, you will surely enjoy as Blake and Bailey take a chance on their mutual attraction. There is heartache and tears, but there is also Joy and Determination as Blake finds something to give him a reason to live on.
PS I may have received a Review copy But I #OneClicked as I want to support the Charity that Ms Wilson has picked.
The whole royalty from Secrets for Amazon preorders and February sales goes to Wounded Warriors
This will definitely be a Re- read series for me and when they are all in Paperback I will be putting in a bulk order so they can sit on my Awesome Author Bookcase.
