I'm currently writing Inspirational fiction for Harlequin Love Inspired Romance, but have my backlist of books ready to self publish. My Fate with a Helping Hand in Massachusetts series will be published in the fall of 2011.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read and review this book. I truly enjoyed the first book in the series and was expecting the same of this one. I was NOT disappointed.
It was exciting to revisit the main characters from the first book as secondaries in this book, but pleasantly surprised that I liked Mitch and Sara as much as I liked Mandy and Beau in Her Heart for the Asking. Lisa Mondello is wonderfully skilled in creating the kind of characters that a reader can really believe and invest in. I loved how Sara's fierce loyalty and determination comes out and how Mitch virtually blooms into the kind of father every child should have.
The romance is sweet and steamy - I know that sounds wrong, but it's true.
With each Lisa Mondello book I read, I like her style, stories and characters more and more. This was the second book of hers that I read, but plan to read more. I am currently reading the next book in this series, The More I see.

His Heart for the Trusting by Lisa Mondello
Book 2 of the Texas Hearts Series
We return to the Double T ranch where we met Mitch Broader briefly in Her Heart for the Asking, book 1 in the series. Mitch has dreams. He is saving up to buy his own ranch one day and until then he is a partner in the Double T, training and selling horses. And then his world comes to a sudden halt when a baby is brought to the Double T, the woman claims baby Jonathan is Mitch's son and takes off and Mitch's dreams dissolve in front of him as he is holding a screaming baby that he has no clue what to do with. Thank goodness that Sara Lightfoot dropped into his life...or rather the ranch house...at that moment.
Sara had run away from her Apache roots ten years ago. She married and left for LA. Her husband molded her into the woman he needed by his side...a woman who was more white than Apache. She had a dream now. With Dave and LA in her past she was returning to her roots to teach the stories of old to the new generations of Apache children on the reservation. Her dream was waylayed slightly as the handsome cowboy begged her to be the live-in nanny until he found someone else.
I enjoyed this story. Lisa was able to stir my emotions with some of the situations in the book, laughter when a cowboy learns how to give a baby a bath and tears when dreams look like they will take people in opposite directions. Anger when the past comes back to threaten these three people.
