Will saving a man's life and restoring Tiffany's faith bring this couple together ..and bring them home to Heart's Crossing Ranch?

Right to Bragg by Tanya Hanson is the third story set in her sweet and heartwarming inspirational Heart's Crossing Ranch series. While this is a part of a series, each book can be read on its own. Ms. Hanson's characters are likeable and have good dialogue. While the romance between the two main characters is the main plot of the story, forgiveness and faith are a secondary focus in this series.

Bragg Martin is the second youngest of the Martin children; he's good looking, in great physical shape and runs his own successful accounting company. His only problem is a mistake from his past and something he's recently come clean about, his use of steroids when he was on his high school's swim team. Steroids his coach, Tony O'Neal, had given him to use. While Bragg knew people would be disappointed, he didn't think it would cost him clients, or that he would have such a hard time forgiving Tony O'Neal for what he'd done. He also didn't expect to be attracted to his sister's paralegal and nanny.

Tiffany Vickers is a young woman who's starting life over again in Mountain Cove. Disowned by her family because of betraying her brother's trust, Tiffany is lonely and somewhat bitter. The only thing going right in her life is her new job as a paralegal and nanny for Rachel, Bragg's older sister, she's happy taking care of little Matthew, who reminds her of the nephew she no longer gets to see. While Tiffany isn't looking for a relationship, she can't deny the attraction she feels towards Bragg Martin.

When a winter storm forces Bragg, Tiffany and Tony O'Neal to stay at Rachel's home, Bragg and Tiffany will have to face their attraction and deal with the issues of forgiveness that are getting in the way of their lives. Ms. Hanson did a good job developing Bragg and Tiffany's romance, while at the same time tackling their problems which dealt with betrayal and their need to both give and ask for forgiveness. She also tackled Tiffany's problems with faith and her relationship with God. Bragg and Tony O'Neal had to deal with their issues too, which were made more difficult because of their mutual attraction to Tiffany, something Ms. Hanson also resolves.

When the storm is over and everyone is invited to Heart's Crossing Ranch for a Christmas celebration, will Tiffany and Bragg be able to forgive those who have wronged them in the past and look forward towards a happy future together? And will Tiffany's family have a change of heart? You'll have to read Right to Bragg to find out. I enjoyed this installment in the series and look forward to seeing what Ms. Hanson has planned for this series next.
