Publisher's summary

She needed a place to stay. He needed to save his ranch. Together, they just might make a home.

Sgt. Dylan Banks lost more than just his leg in the war. His fiancée and family turned their backs on him as well. Now, he’s determined to create a safe place where wounded warriors like himself can heal. But a hidden zoning law requires all residents of the Purple Heart Ranch to be married. 

To save his dream, Dylan and his men will have to tie the knot. But can a man with such deep scars inside and out believe in love again?

Maggie Shaw lost both her job as a veterinary technician and her apartment on the same day. Who knew her unreasonable landlord would kick her out for being four dogs over the one pet limit? Now, she and her gang of special-needs dogs are in trouble. 

Fate puts her in Dylan’s path with a proposal that seems too good to be true - but can her heart bear a loveless marriage of convenience?

Dylan yearns to reach out for Maggie’s healing touch, but he keeps his distance, convinced his wounds are too deep for her embrace. Maggie sees past Dylan’s injuries, but if she fails to capture his heart they both could lose it all: her beloved animals, his ranch, and each other.

Find out if love can truly heal all wounds in this light-hearted sweet romance of convenient arrangements that unfold into lasting love. On His Bended Knee is the first in a series of marriage of convenience tales featuring wounded warriors who are healed with the power of love.

Time to Get the Rest on Audible

Narration was great!

Honorable heroes. Dogs. Love. What's not to like. When Dillon loses his leg, his family turns on him. But his army buddies are all sticking together with him, finding legitimate ways to heal. Horse therapy for physical, check. Psychological help from a pastor, check. Now, what about "love?". I absolutely love Spin (nope, not telling, read the story, lol).The rescue had me in years (nope, not telling, read the story, lol). Now the only thing left to say is....time to get the rest of the series on Audible.

Rapid reader

Loved the narration and the story, and would would love to see this be a boxed set, as the story is shorter than I usually buy, but do want to get to the next book in the series!

Boring and short, very little romance. Not very believable either. I liked the narration though

Meh

Very short story. Very little character or story development. So it was hard to understand why these people made these choices, or made such big commitments to each other with so little background. Seemed to end just as the story was beginning. Makes me not want to bother with the rest of the series.

Wounded soldiers can heal all but their hearts on Purple Heart 💜 Ranch

Discharged Army soldiers, all from one unit wounded in Afghanistan, learn to live with their crippling wounds on a unique Montana ranch they call Purple Heart 💜 Ranch. But an archaic deed restriction soon allows a challenge to the ranch use because the former soldiers are unmarried, leaving them little time to find wives - or eviction. Can one modern-day arranged marriage work in time to delay legal action? This is the story of this modern-day marriage arrangement.

I enjoyed this first of a series about the Purple Heart 💜 Ranch. The main characters are deeply developed, so well that I could feel their pain and pull for their joy. I found myself inside the story, actually watching the actions and hearing their voices! And, when it ended, I kept thinking about the characters and wanted more. I recommend!
