Rugged, quiet, hardworking, Wyatt takes his position as head of the Kinnison family seriously. But the scars of betrayal by the women to whom he once trusted his heart now prompt his stark, simple game plan, and no one in hell is going to convince him any differently. What matters most, besides the welfare of his brothers, is to manage the ranch left to him and never risk his heart again to something as foolish as love—but after meeting Aimee, Wyatt begins to realize that a man should never say never to a determined second grade teacher.
When vivacious, resilient Aimee Worth loses her twin sister in a tragic accident, she makes the choice to live out her sister’s dream of teaching in the small mountain community called End of the Line, Montana, never suspecting she’d meet her Mr. Right in the middle of nowhere—he just doesn’t know it yet. Used to challenges, her spirit shatters the perceptions that have kept him isolated from living life beyond the ranch, proving to him that when it comes to love, the greatest risk is not taking one.
Here's what our friend Margie had to say about Rugged Hearts by Amanda McIntyre>
I’ve lost my heart to Wyatt Kinnison. The man just flat-out tugged at my heart strings and then filled my heart with joy. I guess I share these sentiments with Aimee Worth, second grade teacher in End of the Line, Montana. She and I were sisters of the heart throughout the entire soul awakening events for Wyatt Kinnison. Aimee Worth is the quintessential heroine who definitely goes above and beyond the call of duty. Aimee has experienced a major loss in her life but it’s not keeping her down and her positive attitude rubs off on the reclusive Wyatt. There’s no stopping Aimee once she sets her mind to shattering the walls around Wyatt’s heart.
Amanda McIntyre has written a very insightful look into the way “Love conquers all.” She uses a strong heroine who has perfect backup in her second grade students to make the conquest and win the day. Ms. McIntyre always produces excellently written books with intriguing characters and heartwarming stories. I highly recommend this book, Rugged Hearts and look forward to more stories in the Kinnison Legacy series.
