Review by Hibiscus

Miranda Hansen has been in love with Luke Dannon since the first time she visited the Lazy D Ranch at the tender age of ten. For the past fifteen years, she kept coming back, trying to find the courage to confess what her heart has always known and prove she's not one of the typical tourist he distrusts. But this year will be the last year—and her last chance to prove to Luke that they belong together. Will her fearless heart prevail or will Luke's pride destroy all she's ever dreamed about?

Miranda has been carrying a torch for Luke since she was ten-years-old. She knows it's time to grow up and let childhood hopes go and she will, after one last try. I like that Miranda gives it one real shot after fifteen years of playing around with her summertime childhood friend. She gave him something to think on when she tried to tell him what she was giving up. My heart was crushed when she laid it on the line and Luke called her a city girl.

Luke is a good looking, cowboy next door type of boy that is easy to like. He works on the family ranch and helped his mother make it successful. I understand why Luke protects his heart and is distrustful of the city folk who come every summer to the ranch for a few weeks and then leave. He seems to really care about the ranch, the horses and Miranda. I was glad he was shaken up in the story.

I was surprised at how much I liked “Fearless Hearts.” I found it to be a sweet story of summer romance, year after year, forever.
