“Take care of your father Anna, it’s all I ask,” was her mother’s dying wish. Anna tried her hardest, working double shifts and getting little rest, plus her dad is an abusive alcoholic. One night, Anna is accosted in her home. Her father really did it this time, and two loan sharks are intent on collecting a debt. They threaten Anna’s life, wanting to prostitute her out to make back the money her father owes.
Her father shows up drunk, and Anna realizes she has to save herself. Despite her injuries, she escapes. Her friend Stacy lives in Pearl, along with two men Max and Eric Cantrell. When Anna arrives on the ranch battered and beaten, an authoritative Sheriff, an ex-Marine and one sexy cowboy become intent on showing her what real love is.
But Anna is an innocent, and trust will not come easy. But these three dominant, stubborn men will do anything for the love of Anna.
Her life in danger and her body nearly broken, Anna Parker takes the first steps to healing when she steps off the bus in Pearl, Texas. She never expected the healing to include three sexy Texas men determined to protect and love her at any cost.
Anna’s body isn’t the only thing that’s bruised and battered. So is her faith in family and men in general. Brothers Charlie, Ben, and Wyatt prove that the men in Texas aren’t just big in size; they also have an incredible supply of patience, understanding, love and devotion. I like that Anna doesn’t immediately fall all over the men. Charlie appropriately compares her to a frightened doe at one point. The writing is so vivid I could easily picture Anna’s trepidation in accepting that these three large men wanted to love and care for her.
Charlie, Ben, and Wyatt Cantrell are more than brothers, they are obviously best friends. This is a close knit family along with their cousins Eric and Max. As a reader and a woman, I had to admire their devotion and connection. Even though Anna is initially intimidated by the brothers, their easy manner and persistence pays off! I would rather she didn’t cry as much as she does, but considering what she had been through I guess it’s understandable. The first time she meets and talks to Wyatt is one of my favorite scenes. He is a total Alpha and doesn’t let her get away with hiding from their chemistry.
Anna has an amazing transformation from a “scared doe” to strong woman as the story progresses. When she realized the trouble has followed her from New York she’s determined to not let the people she’s grown to love get hurt on her account. Lucky for her they feel the same way!
This is a beautiful love story for anyone who enjoys the intensity of a ménage relationship. Ms. Dwyer has a talented voice for writing ménage. I was first introduced to her writings when I read Were She Belongs. My only complaint isn’t really a complaint but more like a hopeful request! In For The Love Of Anna, we are introduced to secondary characters Stacy, Eric and Max who are in a ménage relationship as well. I NEED to read their story! So, please Ms. Dwyer, don’t leave us hanging to long!! Until then, though, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Anna’s story. You will be glad you did.
