Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy.

Book Blurb

Her heart seeks safety. But will trouble find her even here?

After her sister’s marriage, Michelle Stiles is left hiding at Two Harts Ranch with the handsome but stubborn Zane Hart. She’s managed to stay one step ahead of her stepfather and his devious plans, but if he finds her, she will no longer be safe.

Zane has problems of his own. Having discovered a gold mine on his property, he must figure out how to harvest it without kicking off a gold rush. Michelle, educated and trained to run her father’s business, wants to manage all aspects of the mine, but Zane thinks for a person so smart she can have some misguided ideas. Running the mining operation will be a dangerous job, and he can’t risk putting her in harm’s way.

But danger finds Michelle anyway when she’s suddenly attacked. If they go to the sheriff, they’ll reveal her location, but if they do nothing . . . their troubles have only just begun

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Publicity 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.


Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy is the second book in her The Lumber Baron’s Daughters historical romance series.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series! Michelle and her sisters have such strong STEM skills, I love reading about the inventions and buildings they hope to construct. Zane is a perfect counterbalance to Michelle, with his easy going, protective ways. And there was a lot of danger in this book, so the plot get me turning the pages.

To fully appreciate Inventions of the Heart, I recommend reading The Element of Love first. I loved that story, too, in fact, I have plans, after the third book releases, to re-read the whole series all together.

If you love historical romance, with a side of humor and suspense, then definitely grab a copy of Inventions of the Heart. It’s a great read!
