The Desires of Her Heart by Lyn Cote: a review

The Desires of Her Heart by Lyn Cote My review rating: 4 of 5 starsOnce again, another wonderful historical romance from Avon Inspire. I love everything they are putting out without fail. This was my first opportunity to read Lyn Cote and I know she has many more titles available. I look forward to reading more of her novels in the future. The Desires of Her Heart is a story in the category of Tracey Bateman, Tamera Alexander, Janette Oke, Lori Wick, and Tracie Peterson‘s hearts on paper. It is the first in the Texas: Star of Destiny series and I definitely look forward to the next few titles in the series.
