Francesca Daniels lives alone with her art, as a matter of fact she has always been a loner her entire life.  Francesca once let a man into her life and that proved to be a grave mistake that she took to confirm her way of life.  Nick Red Cloud, a private investigator, came riding into Francesca’s life one night.  They were instantly attracted to one another and the attraction soon lead to flames. 

Nick has not told Francesca the entire truth about himself and why he is there.  When he discovers that he has brought her worst nightmare to her door, Nick fears he might have lost the love he just found.  Nick pulls every string he has to help Francesca, but can he convince Francesca that he really loves her and wants a life with her forever?

Rebel Heart deals with a subject matter that can be tricky.  Francesca has survived an attack, which leads her even further into her life as a loner.  Nick has accepted a job thinking its just going to be a simple job.  Neither anticipates nor realizes just how their lives will change forever, both good and bad, by this simple meeting.  I was truly touched by how Ms. Bridger worked her story around the background of physical assault.  The compassion, fear, rage and love that were expressed by the characters made Rebel Heart a love story that all women can relate to.  I recommend Rebel Heart as a story that any type of reader would like in their library.  I know I am happy to have it in mine and I plan on re-reading it several times.
