Box of Hearts

Can two lost souls find love after loss?

“Nikki Ashton at her absolute best!!”

“This book provoked more tears than I’m used to from Nikki, but there was still the humour…Easily a five star read, I would give more if I could!”

Millie is unlucky in love and when her long term relationship ends like a soap opera story line, she takes drastic action. She applies for an overseas job as home school teacher on an American family Ranch and finds herself instantly attracted to single dad, Jesse, her boss. As for Jesse, well he doesn’t need her getting in his business and constantly reminding him that he neglects his daughter.
In Jesse Connor’s eyes his life would be simple if it consisted of three things. His ranch, his cattle and his horses. But it doesn’t- for one, there’s his young daughter, Adeline, who is fighting for his love and attention because he’s the only parent she has. Then there is Millie Braithwaite-that damn beautiful English woman.
Millie & Jesse are two people who are both fighting against the inevitable, because they both know that this time their hearts could be shattered beyond repair.
Box of Hearts is the first book in the Connor Ranch series and tells the story of second chance love and the joy and sorrow it can bring.


This book was received in exchange for an honest review

This is the story of Millie Braithwaite , who decides after being left at the alter at her wedding by the Groom for another man, that  she would make a fresh start , and decides to take a position as a home school teacher on an American family ranch, but on when meeting the man who picked her up from the airport, she is instantly attracted to him.

Jesse Connor, widow and father of four year old Adeline collects Millie from the airport, he drops her off at the ranch to meet his parents and daughter but leaves her to go tend his cattle and horses, with not one thought about how it would seem.  He has distanced himself from his family after his wife Melody died in a car accident, she was apparently the love of his life and he could not live without her, but on seeing Millie, things start changing for the better, he becomes closer to Adeline and his parents as well as his brother, but he is struggling with his feeling for his late wife and his feelings for Millie.

I did like the storyline and Addy is a very bright and funny child, the instant attraction between Millie and Jessie was very well done, although I did want to punch Jesse when he couldn’t see past his own feelings for his late wife.

A great story in the Connor Ranch series by Nikki Ashton and can’t wait for the next instalment.
