This is a book is comprised of two older novellas - "Glory, Glory" from 1990 and it kind of shows its age and "Snowbound With the Bodyguard "which though newer, is a much less believable and polished novel.
"Glory,Glory" is a true tear-jerker. Glory was forced to put her child up for adoption when she was 18. She never knew who had adopted her baby. Now she is back in her old hometown, sets eyes on her old high school lover/sweet heart and things go to Hell in a hand basket
This is a very sexy tear-jerker and I was surprised as to just how soon our protagonist (Glory and Jesse) have sex and where they do it! The story was surprisingly good even though it felt rushed and overwhelming at times. I attribute that to the length of the book and the amount of time in which the author had to wind up the story.
Now "Snowbound With the Bodyguard" is a whole different kettle of fish. This story deals with rape and stalking, so if you are sensitive to that you may want to stay away from this story. It also has a few inconsistencies one of which was a real problem for me. The heat in this novella is very mild and the characters are quite sweet. The idea of the story is interesting, and did keep me compelled to finish.
I find it hard to believe this was written by Linda Lael Miller. The style of writing was very different. There was absolutely no mention of any animals, dogs, cats, or horses which are a usual part of her writing. So although it was the usual modern western romance, I didn't find it as enjoyable.
