"Beloved" [Where the Heart Lives Series, Book 3] by Robin Lee Hatcher

My Book Summary : When Diana was a naive teenager, at 18-years-old, she met and became instantly infatuated with Tyson--the 25-year-old son of a wealthy mine owner--who swept her off her feet, got her into a quick marriage, and then after a few months he abandoned her because of his father. Now after seven years apart and thinking that Tyson has been dead during the last two, Diana is about to announce her engagement to another man (someone she likes but doesn't love) when Tyson sweeps back into her life, alive and well, and wanting to make amends between them...

...along with wanting her to help out with his political campaign.

After coming to an agreement between them, Diana and Tyson living together for six months for his campaign then parting amicably unless Tyson can win her back for good, they find that they both have changed in ways that neither expected and both admire. However, will the changes between them be enough to keep them together and ignite their hearts or will they find they both aren't able to get over their pasts?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! This fast paced, heart wrenching, historical romance is one that I had a hard time putting down I liked it so much! All of the characters have so much dimension and emotional growth to them throughout this novel that it was hard not to like each of them in some way, well except for Brook of course. With the way this novel is laid out, I believe Diana and Tyson needed their time apart to grow and become the wonderful people they turned out to be, since when they both first got together they weren't a good match up because of how they both were hoping for different things. Tyson and Diana balance each other out in ways that are so sweet and entertaining as they find ways to bring their lives together. In addition, I really liked how everything is wrapped up in the end!

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys historical romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
"He should be put out of his misery, ma'am."
"No!" Ned cried. "You're not gonna shoot him. Miss Diana ain't gonna let you do that."
"Ned," she answered quickly, "we'll have to do what's best for the animal."
The boy's eyes narrowed. "You didn't shoot me when I was hurt."
"Of course not. It's not the same thing."
"Who says?"
"I ain't gonna let you do it." The defiant look disappeared replaced by tears in his eyes. "He's a good dog. Not his fault he's sick."
Diana drew a deep breath before looking at the groom again. "Send for the veterinary surgeon, Mr. Romano. And let's make the dog as comfortable as we can until he gets here."
"Yes, ma'am."
The stable boy was dispatched for the animal doctor, and Claude Romano moved the ailing canine into an empty stall, placing him on a bed of straw covered with a horse blanket. Ned didn't let anything or anyone keep him too far from the dog.
Lord, please don't let Dog die. Please let him live. I know there are greater problems in the world, but this matters so much to Ned.
She turned around at the sound of Tyson's voice, unreasonably glad he'd returned.
"Upchurch said there was some sort of problem down at the stables."
"Not a problem, really." She stepped out of the stall and drew her husband a short distance from the opening. "Ned's dog is sick. We've sent for the veterinary surgeon."
"Ned's dog?"
"I didn't know he had a dog."
A full explanation seemed too complicated now, so she shrugged as she looked toward the stall again.
"I suppose it's going to end up living in the house too," Tyson said under his breath.
She heard him . . . and couldn't keep from smiling. ~ within Chapter 15
