November means Thanksgiving, spending time reflecting on our many blessings and trying not to throttle Aunt Gertrude over the turkey when she makes yet another snide comment that you can’t seem to hang on to a man. In the name of family harmony, why not ignore ol’ Aunt Gertie by diving into a historical romance? The options this month are plentiful!
A Treasure of Gold by Piper Huguley
When you follow your heart, never count the cost.
Migrations of the Heart, Book 3
Trusting in the One who orders her steps, Nettie Bledsoe is determined not to deviate from her route to the charity kitchen. Don’t stop for anything, her sisters say. Pittsburgh isn’t like Georgia, they warn.
Yet when low moans of unholy suffering drift from an alley, she can’t help but investigate. It’s a man. The most beautiful man she’s ever seen. Despite his scandalous reputation, something within her responds to his sinfully rich voice.
Jay Evans is trying hard to stay on the straight and narrow, and doesn’t want help from any church do-gooder. But until his wound heals, he needs help caring for his young daughter, Goldie. Especially since Nettie saw fit to fire Goldie’s barely competent nanny.
Despite their mismatched backgrounds, Nettie and Jay fight a losing battle against their growing attraction. But it’s only when Nettie is kidnapped that Jay realizes that if he doesn’t get her back safe and sound, his heart will shatter into uncountable pieces.
This third book in Huguley’s Migrations of the Heart series follows middle sister Nettie as she learns to navigate the urban streets of Pittsburgh after leaving rural Georgia behind. The beautiful cover is also a finalist for RT Book Reviews Best Cover of the Month poll.
