Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
A Healer’s Promise by Misty M. Beller.
Levi Masters’s time as a British spy hasn’t ended, though his country’s war with America has. Overhearing a scout reveal a discovery that could give America an upper hand in future conflicts, Levi is sent to investigate. While trekking through the Canadian Rockies, he is convicted about his life of lies and half-truths. But just as he decides to embrace truth at any cost, warriors from a hidden mountain village take him captive.
Village healer Audrey Moreau is more curious than afraid of the outsider. And she’s drawn to his commitment to honesty even at his own expense. But despite her arguments, the council decides he’s too great a risk. Compelled to help him escape, she sneaks him out of the village. But when Levi faces a life-threatening injury and the fierce mountain winter closes in, Levi and Audrey are forced to discover just how far they’ll go to ensure the safety of the other and the love growing between them.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Tours. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
A Healer’s Promise by Misty M. Beller, is the second book in her Brides of Laurent historical romance series.
I liked Audrey from the previous book, so I was looking forward to reading one. Admittedly, at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about Levi, but by the time Audrey impulsively helps him, I was fully cheering him on.
From that moment, I was fully engrossed in the story and didn’t want to put it down. I love close proximity, especially when caused by illness, injury, and weather. And this story has it all! Plus, the longer I got to know Levi, the more I wanted him to have his happily ever after.
How it all works out is something you’ll have to find out by reading the story, but it has a satisfying conclusion. Now I’m curious to know who the third Bride is and to find out how the series wraps up.
Now it’s your turn.
