Now and Forever by Mary Connealy

Shannon Wilde is the middle sister--and the one who loves animals. She's established her own homestead and is raising sheep for their wool. Things are going fine...until Shannon gets swept over a cliff by Matthew Tucker!

Tucker seizes every opportunity to get away from civilization, but one particular walk in the woods ends with him sprinting away from an angry grizzly and plunging into a raging river, accidentally taking Shannon Wilde with him. Their adventure in the wilderness results in the solitary mountain man finding himself hitched to a young woman with a passel of relatives, a homestead, and a flock of sheep to care for.

As Tucker and Shannon learn to live with each other, strange things begin to happen on Shannon's land. Someone clearly wants to drive her off, but whoever it is apparently didn't count on Tucker. Trying to scare Matthew Tucker just makes him mad--and trying to hurt the woman he's falling in love with sets off something even he never expected.

This is the second book in the Wild At Heart series.  It begins where Tried and True left off.  This is basically a story of how Shannon and Tucker survive the river and rapids after they plunge into the roaring river and falls.  As previously stated, they end up married when they parson finds out they spent nights together unchaperoned while fighting for their lives.  When they do get back to Shannon’s homestead someone is trying to force them off the land.

 In typical Mary Connealy fashion there is humor laced throughout the entire book.  I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a humorous, romance, light mystery western.  It isn’t necessary to read the first book in the series.  But it would be helpful as some of the storyline continues into the second book.

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
