After drinking away the grief from his family’s death, Clint Truman avoids jail by taking a job in North Texas and settling down with a woman he vows to protect but never love—until her quiet compassion slowly breaks his hardened heart wide open…
All Gillian Matheson has ever known is Army life, leaving his true love to be a part-time spouse. But when a wounded Gillian returns home to find her desperately fighting to save their marriage, he’s determined to become the husband she deserves.

What I liked about the novel....
This was a well written fabulous American pioneer story of the history of Harmony, Texas told by this author. This was definitely a story that is brought to life showing all the emotions... loving, sad, happy and even awed from some of all of it. You will be presented a story that makes it seem as if you are right there in the midst of it all through the pain and heart ache that many of these characters have gone through. I found this novel very interesting and how this author was able to give us the 'Harmony' series was simply amazing giving us the characters backgrounds from many of her previous series. From Harmon Ely, to Clint Truman, to Patrick McAllen and then on to Captain Gillian Matteson you will get a complete romantic adventure story that will keep you turning the pages until the end.
What I especially liked about "A Place Called Harmony"...
If you are looking for a good western historical romance you have come to the right place because "A Place Called Harmony" will give it to you....a simply good read By the time you get to the end of this story there will be an excerpt from the next Harmony series: 'One True Heart' that is scheduled to come out April, 2015 and I am sure the readers will be looking for this good read.
