Loree Lough in her new book, “Currency of the Heart book coverCurrency of the Heart” Book One in the Secrets on Sterling Street series published by Whitaker House brings us into the lives of Shaina Sterling and Sloan Remington.

From the back cover:  Shaina Sterling hates the lie she’s living, but feels she has no choice. Soon after the shocking death of her husband, the young widow learns how deeply entrenched in debt his lavish lifestyle has left her. To protect the legacy of his name, as well as her own reputation and stately home at Sterling Hall, Shaina secretly sells off valuable possessions, piece by piece, hoping her wealthy Denver friends never learn the truth.

Successful rancher Sloan Remington knows far more about Shaina than she realizes, but because of a promise he made to her husband as he lay dying, he guards her secrets as carefully as he looks after her safety. But soon, a series of additional misfortunes make Shaina beholden to him—and threaten to expose a truth about himself that he’s long worked hard to keep hidden.

Will trials and tragedies bring these two together? Or will secrets—and the cost of exposing them—drive them apart forever?

Loree Lough has managed to put a lot of story into this story and all I can say is well done! Shaina is a very interesting person who doesn’t want 1882 Denver society to know how destitute her late husband left her. Sloan is not only a hero but a really nice person who I wish was real and a friend of mine. These two need each other in business if they plan to prosper. They really need each other and draw closed when the epidemic hits and Sloan is involved with transportation and Shaina goes back to being a nurse. Ms. Lough has managed to weave the romance between Shaina and Sloan in such a way that it just captivates you. She makes you care for all the characters, secondary or not, and their journey. This is also just plain fun and interesting as well.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep.
