Review by Violet
When ranch hand Beau Tucker announces his intent to leave the Double C for California, Kit McCauley tells herself, ‘Good riddance.’ Unfortunately her heart isn’t quite in agreement with her head. Perhaps she’ll just have one more talk with the handsome cowboy before he disappears out of her life forever.
Temperatures rise as their interlude is interrupted by an injured horse thief who shoots at Beau and kidnaps Kit. Will Beau be in time to save her or did the ruffian’s bullet ring true, bringing his young life to an end and forever keeping their revelations unsaid?
Kit was madly in love with ranch hand Beau Tucker. Kit's heart is telling her to make him stay, her mouth is telling an altogether different story. Beau Tucker is heading to California to get away from Kit. He loves her with all his heart but can't stand by to watch her marry someone else. In the middle of an argument, they are held up by an injured horse thief. Will they both make it out alive?
Kit's character is a little spitfire who has no intention of being told what to do. Beau is an honorable man who will do anything and give up everything if only it means saving Kit's life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this refreshing good old fashioned cowboy tale. The Heart Never Lies had all the elements of a stimulating, exciting western. I was intrigued by the chemistry between Kit and Beau and found myself rooting for them during all of the action-packed scenes.
Ms. Green did an outstanding job of portraying a realistic story of love, fear and devotion within a few short pages. The Heart Never Lies left me wanting to read more about Kit and Beau. Perhaps we could convince Ms. Green to write a sequel? While this reader can only hope, I would like to encourage anyone who loves a sweet romantic western to pick up The Heart Never Lies. It is an exceptional read.
