Description

Nell Holstrom wanted no part of her grandfather's barren gold mine that had taken the lives of her mother, father, and younger brother--even if there may still be hidden wealth inside. Instead, she went to Denver and took a job as housekeeper at the old Stone Hill Inn.
Asa Stone was barely more than a boy when his father dragged him and his brothers to fight with Colonel John Chivington. But Asa refused to participate in the raid on the peaceful Cheyenne and Arapahoe--and when the smoke cleared, his father and brother lay among the slaughtered. Besieged by guilt, Asa wandered the West for years before returning to Denver to rebuild the old inn he'd inherited.
Together, Nell and Asa work hard to restore Stone Hill. But when disaster hits the inn, Asa retreats into despair and Nell is forced to return to her family's mine. Asa faces the hard fact: He'll never be the man Nell deserves. Can he overcome the dark secrets of his past? And will Nell still love him when she learns the truth?

Review quote

Loree Lough has done it again--penned yet another story about letting go of the past and loving in the present. With beautiful historical touches, Guardians of the Heart takes readers on a journey that many men and women need to take, from hiding secrets to guarding each other's hearts under God's watchful eye.
--Robin Bayne, Award-winning author of the Gardner's Gazebo series: Prodigal, Samaritan, and Christmas Pearl

About Loree Lough

Once upon a time, best-selling author Loree Lough literally sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the U.S. Now and then, she blows the dust from her six-string to croon a tune or two for her grandchildren, but she mostly just writes. Over the years, her stories have earned nearly 100 industry and Readers' Choice awards, seven movie options, and over eighty four- and five-star reviews.
Loree has nearly seven million copies of her books in circulation. She has written more than 100 books, thousands of articles, and many short stories. Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach to teaching makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers' organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, and college and high school writing programs in the U.S. and abroad.
A writer who believes in "giving back," Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers' Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and several other worthwhile organizations. She splits her time between her home in the Baltimore suburbs and a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, sharing both with her real-life hero, Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of lighthouses, wind chimes, "wolf stuff."
