Kimberly Rogers vowed to fight a tragic past the only way she knew how: she joined the Army and became strong. No man would hurt her again. But a war wound sends her to her brother’s in Cripple Creek, WY, with vision and hearing impairments.
Whereas glasses can help her see and hearing aids can help her hear, nothing can force her to talk again. Is she really unable to speak, or is she hiding behind her disability to protect herself, her pride, and her heart? Regulated to the most menial of jobs, her world in shambles, Kimberly is finally convinced to seek medical assistance.
Carlos Medina is Jackson Hole’s best therapist. If anyone can make Kimberly speak again, it’s him. But Kimberly has to meet him halfway, and Carlos has his own past tragedy that the young, mute woman threatens to force him to conquer.
They both have wounds…and sometimes wounds must be reopened before they can heal. Can they open up to each other? Can Kimberly find her voice again and open her heart? Can love heal them both
Review By Tamara
A healing Love is a very different kind of romance. While there is certainly a romantic element to the story, in my opinion A Healing Love is more a story of… well just like to title says, the healing power of love. Not just romantic love, but all kinds of love. The support of family and friends is so important when trying to overcome an obstacle, be it physical or emotional.
Kimberly has faced more than any one woman should have to in her very short life. Her strength and determination are phenomenal. She doesn’t always go about it the right way, it takes her time to learn to accept help. But, she is such a wonderful character.
Carlos has his own demons to deal with, and Kimberly’s past, along with his inappropriate attraction to her, bring them all to the surface.
I couldn’t put A Healing Love down. I had to know how it was going to end! While A Healing Love deals with some difficult subject matter, it does it in a manner that leaves you feeling uplifted and empowered. It also highlights the difficulties that differently abled people face in our world, from pitying looks, to being spoken to as if you are a child. Kimberly’s take charge attitude made me smile. She never lets anyone get away with talking around her, she jumps right in amd puts them in their place. You go girl!
The love scenes between Carlos and Kimberly were sweet, sensual and handled perfectly. I loved these two damaged, but not broken heroes. An SSLY recommended read!
