“The land we know as Texas was also the beloved homeland of another culture and was defended to the death. This love story is filled with characters who have passion for land, culture and love.” (Romantic Times BOOKclub)
Can two people hold on to their love and faith in a world that considers them enemies? Set in 19th century Texas, Awaken My Heart tells the story of Marianne Phillips, the daughter of a wealthy rancher. Weston Phillips is in the midst of a struggle with the 'mestizos' who have long held the land that Phillips now claims to own. His insistence that they abandon their homeland leads to a rebellion. When the rebels kidnap Marianne, in hopes that Phillips will trade the land for her freedom, she meets the infamous rebel leader, Armando Garcia. Unaware of what his people were plotting, Armando hates that the struggle has come to this. He arranges for Marianne's escape, but not before becoming enchanted with this brave young woman who has taken it upon herself to learn his language and whose faith seems to guide her through the most difficult situations. When Marianne returns to her father, Phillips' only concern is that the man who has promised to marry Marianne, an eldery don of a nearby estate, will still have her as his wife. When Marianne runs into Armando while out riding one afternoon, she cannot escape the joy that she feels upon seeing him again, and it is clear he feels the same way. Yet as Armando learns to lean on the faith that keeps Marianne strong, they must ask themselves how much they are willing to risk to give their love a chance.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Armando was the ultimate hero. He was strong, yet compassionate, dedicated, yet torn because of his past. The author's description of him made me think of Antonio Banderas. Zorro here I come! Ah, what a tale of love! It was so passionate and felt so real it swept me off my feet. I loved every yummy kiss and the emotion I experienced as the hero and heroine dealt with all of the things separating them, along with all of the things drawing them together. Fabulous romance. Great historical fiction. This story gets my highest rating. It's a real page turner! The Avon Inspire line has some of the best, most inspirational and romantic historical fiction I've read to date!
Marianne. She's a bold woman, full of life. In many ways like her father, yet still waiting for his approval.
When Marianne is brought to Armando as a captive of his people, he regrets the decision that was made. He respects her, is surprised by her, and grows to love her. But she could never love him. Or could she?
What will become of Marianne? Will she be happy in an arranged marriage to Don Lorenzo Sanchez, a respected older Spaniard?
Wrestling with the truth of her feelings, she's drawn to Armando, her captor. He releases her, but she dreams of him, longs for him. How could she fall in love with her father's enemy?
DiAnn Mills captures our hearts with this romantic adventure.
Although this is not my favorite DiAnn Mills work, it is an enjoyable read. The best part of the book is where Marianne, a Protestant, shares with Armando, a Catholic, that he does not need a priest to have a relationship with God. Armando's initiation of that relationship brought a tear to my eye.
Does Marianne Wharton see right through Armando's mask...er... um I mean through his tough man, villainous facade? And if so, what does she find? A friend or a foe?
And, you've heard the expression... If mama ain't happy, nobody's happy. Well, in AWAKEN MY HEART's case the saying goes...If Marianne's daddy ain't happy, nobody's happy. Why? hehe Yeah right.... as if I'd tell. Buy the book and find out.
Can Marianne tame Armando's wild spirit like she tamed her beloved stallion? Does she even want to? Can two total strangers from completely different worlds unite for the sake of a rebel's cause? If so, at what price?
Got ya wondering about, AWAKEN MY HEART? I hope so. Because this is one beautiful story that's filled with passion, tragedy, life, victory, defeat, and love. One you don't want to miss. Excellent story!
Fabulous job, DiAnn! Keep up the awesome work!
