Title: A Chance on Love
Author: Kristine Raymond
Genre: Historical Western Romance
Publication Date: July 19, 2014

Dr. Ben Kincaid is content to spend his days and nights treating the people of Hidden Springs. Not even his closest friends know the heartbreak that haunts him. Ten years earlier his wife left him, taking their only child with her. Ben vowed to never again trust anyone with his heart.

Shiloh Bishop came to Hidden Springs looking for a fresh start. Having been forced into an arranged marriage with an older man, she’s lived a life of misery. When she finds herself suddenly widowed and expecting her first child, she looks forward to starting a new life.

Ben is captivated by Shiloh the first moment he sees her but he is unwilling to let go of the chains of mistrust that are wrapped around his heart. Shiloh is determined to rebuild her life and has no intention of ever becoming another man’s wife.

When a deadly illness strikes the town, they have no choice but to rely on each other. Admiration and respect soon turn to passion, but will it be enough for them to take a chance on love?

She has released three books in the Hidden Springs series and is currently working on a contemporary novel called Tempted. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and furry family, and catching up on her backlog of books to read.

She is the author of three novels in the Hidden Springs series: Here to Stay, Hearts on Fire, and Abby’s Heart, and will soon be releasing book four, A Chance on Love.

4 out of 5 ARC for Review

Ben Kincaid is the only doctor in Hidden Springs where he is kept busy.  He has his own secrets that   even the people whom he is closest do not know.  Being busy means he has little time to dwell of his past before he arrived into this small town.

Shiloh Bishop arrives in Hidden Springs on a stagecoach eight month pregnant and decides she will settle her with her baby on the way.  Her abusive older husband recently died and she is looking forward to her new freedom and starting over.  She does not want a man in her life ever again.

When Ben first meets Shiloh, he is instantly attracted to her as he helps her out of the stagecoach but he is weary after his past.  They find themselves in the same company as Shiloh makes friends in the small town where their paths keep crossing and so thus their attraction.

As a deadly illness spreads through the town, they find themselves working together to save the people from death.  Feelings start to grow further but will it lead to love or will their past doom them?

A nice historical fiction read that you can wish for a happy ending.
