Alright I confess I skipped ahead from the 1st installment in the Cutters Creek series to the 8th installment! Go ahead and judge me, but I really couldn’t help myself. After reading The Healing Touch (1st in the series), I just had to know what happened with Mr. Judrow and Emma. The curiosity got the best of me and I found myself hitting the “buy” button on Amazon. ;)
Every now and then we all run into a character that really grabs us, one that we just love immediately, Mr. Judrow was one of those for me. Kit Morgan set up his introduction in The Healing Touch so well that I just had to know more about him. We get to read his and Emma Carlson’s story in the 8th installment of the Cutters Creek series, Love Is Blind.
Love Is Blind takes place mainly in two places Clear Creek and Cutters Creek. It gives the reader a glimpse into Morgan’s popular Prairie Brides series, which takes place in Clear Creek. The hero of this story is Lucius Judrow, who is a bodyguard, and a darn good one at that. Hired by Jack Carlson (The Healing Touch) to track down and bring back his sister Emma, Lucius gets a lot more than he bargained for. Free-spirited, spunky Emma Carlson will do anything to keep her freedom, including hiding out near Clear Creek (cough cough, Prairie Brides series) under a fake name. All Emma wants is to be able to marry who she wants and all Lucius wants is to bring Emma back and collect his money….. Or is that truly what they want?
I very much enjoyed following Lucius’ story and getting to know Emma. I also loved the chance to get a glimpse at a few Clear Creek characters from Morgan’s Prairie Brides series. This book has three different parts that keeps the reader guessing. In the beginning, you’re wondering whether Lucius will find Emma and then of course if he’ll be able to get her to go to Cutters Creek with him. Second, you’re wondering if they’ll ever make it to Cutters Creek, and third, the big question, will they ever get together or will they allow issues to stand in the way? I’ve said it a million times but I’ll say it again, I love Kit Morgan’s writing style. It grabs you immediately and holds you hostage until the end. The plot and characters are well developed, and you can’t help but get invested in the stories and the people. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great historical read. I’m looking forward to Lucius Judrow’s brother’s story later in the series. ;)
