Review/Giveaway:Rescued by the Stranger by Lizbeth Selvig

Rescued By a Stranger
By: Lizbeth Selvig
Avon Romance
Releasing Oct 1st, 2013


She’s a woman full of dreams

When a stranger arrives in town on a vintage motorcycle, Jill Carpenter has no idea her life is about to change forever. She never expected her own personal knight in shining armor would be an incredibly charming and handsome southern man-but one with a deep secret.

He’s a man hoping to outrun a tragedy

When Chase Preston jumped on his motorcycle to escape his wounded life, he didn’t expect the perfect woman to fall into his arms... literally! But though he can’t deny his feelings for the sweet and beautiful Jill, he doesn’t see any way he and his mistake-filled past will fit into her bright future.

Falling in love may require more than either can give 

The longer Chase stays in Kennison Falls, the more deeply Jill and the people of her home town pull him in. The more Jill discovers heroic qualities in Chase, the more she wants to find a home in his arms-if only he would trust her with the truth. But will truth tear them apart when Jill’s dreams start coming true and Chase’s past finally returns to haunt him? Or, can they get beyond dreams to find the love that will rescue their two hearts?

My Review:

From the very beginning this book drew me in, with Jill running off the road and being rescued by Chase. Jill is a veterinarian student who was on her way to try out of four the Olympic team, is hesistant to get on the back of Chase’s motorcycle, but her dreams push her forward. I liked the way Chase seemed to be instantly drawn to Jill. This was my first story from Ms. Selvig and she does a very good job putting together well detailed characters who have a great connection.

I enjoyed the tidbits about horses, and I really felt like I was pulled into this world. I will admit that at times some of the descriptions were a little too well described and didn’t necessarily add to the story. Overall this is a sweet story with a lot going on and definitely kept me entertained until the end.

I recommend it for fans of sweet romance that like a bit of humor in their romance.
