The Accidental Guardian (High Sierra Sweethearts) is Mary Connealy's first book in the High Sierra Sweethearts series, set in the mid 1800's in western America. This is by far my favorite Mary Connealy book so far. I have enjoyed all of her books, but the storyline of The Accidental Guardian drew me in right away, and I devoured this book too fast.
Trace Riley as the sole survivor of an attack, and has built a life for himself since then in the wilderness. Little did he know he would become an 'accidental' guardian of Deborah and children. He offers the shelter, and his bachelor life is turned upside down.
There is great chemistry between Trace and Deb, and combined with the storyline of Trace's protection and the pioneer lifestyle, this book is a win-win for readers like me who enjoy adventure and romance.
It's going to be tough to find something else to read to pass the time until the next installment of this series!
