Angela Clayborn has just discovered Steve Blumenthal, the man she sent to prison nearly two years before, has been granted an early release. Torn between wanting to see him and fearful if she does, sparks fly when Steve Blumenthal appears in her gift shop and later at her condo. Will Angie free her heart from its icy prison? Has Steve really turned his life around, or is it a hoax?

Meanwhile, in Colorado on business, Angie’s current boyfriend, Brad Morrison, is wrestling with his own call of the wild. He’s met unconventional, sexy Emma Nichols, who runs not only her own riding stable, but helps out with her family’s woodworking store in Estes Park. Emma resents Brad’s offer to help during a family crisis, but eventually discovers that Fate sometimes sends people down unexpected paths to love. Can Brad tame a wildcat? Or will Emma settle for the safe path?

Duo heroines Angela Clayborn and Emma Nichols have different backgrounds and are not happy with the men in their lives. Angela is dealing with her first love Steve Blumenthal, recently released from prison from a past incident involving her, and Emma is resentful towards Brad Morrison, Angela's current boyfriend, when he offers his assistance to her family facing a situation.

True love never fails for Angela and Steve when they continue to meet and both admit to their feelings of love for each other that never disappeared.

While on a business trip in Colorado, Brad comes across sexy Emma, who is a tad bit wild and independent, and also refuses Brad's offer. Eventually she comes to realize life has strange ways of bringing people into each other's lives.

Michaels interweaves the lives of Angela, Brad and Emma without giving a second thought. Angela is still in love with Steve and hasn't been able to tell Brad about her and Steve's past. The reconnection between Angela and Steve is realistic, heartfelt and genuine while Emma and Brad's developing love interest is paced perfectly for this short novella.

I applaud Michaels for opening a door to having duo heroines in Wild At Heart, not a storyline often visited. I recommend this book to romance readers, lovers and those looking for a quick read to satisfy a day of love.
