Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys #3
Lizbeth Selvig
Releasing on February 9. 2016
Avon Impulse

Once comfortable on stage in front of thousands, Joely Crockett is now mortified at the thought of walking—or rolling—down the aisle at her sisters’ wedding. Scarred and wheelchair-bound, the former beauty queen has lost more than the ability to walk—she’s lost her fire. But when one handsome, arrogant guest accuses her of milking her injuries and ignites her ire, Joely finally starts to feel truly alive again, and soon it’s impossible for her to resist her heart’s desire.

Alec Morrissey knows a little something about loss. A famous rodeo cowboy before he was injured in Iraq, he’s managed to create something of a normal life, even if it’s not the one he always imagined. Encountering stunning but damaged Joely, he sees a kindred spirit who can learn from his mistakes.

As these two healing souls begin to fall in love under the Wyoming stars, they must discover if they are willing to give in to the tragedies of life or fight for a future together.

My Thoughts:

I can't even begin to tell y'all how much I love this series. Each book keeps getting better and better. I can remember when I first read "The bride wore denim", I just knew this series would be amazing.  Joely first had her accident in the first book and since then I couldn't wait to read her story.

This was more than just a romance story, this book was one of the most inspirational books I've read in a long time. Joely and Alec are both damaged and bruised with demons to face. Alec makes Joely see that she can't feel sorry for herself anymore, that she still has a life to live. They both heal each other in so many ways. There were many times I had tears in my eyes from the emotional journeys that these two characters have been on. If you're looking for a tear-jerking, heart-wrenching, and inspirational book, go buy this book. You won't be disappointed. Lizbeth Selvig's books are magical and include Cowboys.
