A Note From the Publisher
"Rich characterizations, realistic emotions, and a lovely story make for a can't-put-it-down emotional read."
"Redemption is an emotionally raw story of two broken people finding love amidst the agonizing pain of loss and the debilitating specter of PTSD. From the deserts of the Middle East to the sweeping Cattenach ranch in Wyoming, Nate and Olivia's scorching passion ignites the sheets and heats up the pages. With beautiful prose and a colorful cast of supporting characters, including Bones, the dog, Redemption is a compelling read of love overcoming immense obstacles."
~Katie Ashley, New York Times & USA Today Bestseller
"Moran writes a sweet contemporary romance with well-written characters who want closure regarding their pain of losing family in the war in Afghanistan. The storyline in this Cattenach Ranch installment is believable and has surprises throughout the book.

I received an arc from NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
Wow these two books really struck the heart with the background stories around PTSD and trauma.
Nate comes to the ranch on a promise to Olivias brother and learns that he can be loved.
Amy, a victim of domestic violence and childhood trauma, also reconnects with Nakos in the second book and learns she deserves love too and she is enough.
Both great reads and I would read this author again.
This story is so good I didn't want to finish it too soon.
I recommend you all to read it if you like your romantic stories full of emotions and chemistry and struggles and hope.
Nate is an ex soldier,he was released from the army after an accident that cost him a few months in a german medical center and the life of his only friend.
He went to the Cattenach ranch to honor a promise, to take care of Justin's sister,but he didn't know yet that he will also find his friend last gift over there.
My favorite character is Olivia,I loved her strength,her pure heart and her ability to empathize with every other character.I liked how she subtly (and not) pushed Nate out of his shell,making him show his real self and making him understand his real value.
You cannot not love these characters and cheer for them to find their happily ever after.
I can't wait to read the second book in this series.
It was such a pleasure to be back to the Cattenach Ranch and this story will grasp your heart from the beginning.
Kelly Moran's words will stay with me for a long time.
I loved Nakos,he grew so much from the first book,he finally find out his real feelings for his best friends Olivia and Amy and he acts on them.
I appreciated his kindness,his strength and his patience that will help him to show Amy her real worth.
Two wonderful stories linked yet can be read as stand-alone tales. Nate grew up in foster homes and had a terrible childhood, which had shaped how he dealt with life as an adult, feeling guilt over the death of his friend he finds it difficult to accept the love Olivia shows him. In the second Amy grew up unloved and abused and after being beaten by her husband needs to accept she is both loveable and that the love Nakos has for her is real. Very well written emotional stories.
