The Breath of Dawn by Kristen Heitzmann ~ review and giveaway

The Breath of Dawn
“Heitzmann weaves a many-layered tale keep[ing] readers entertained and wondering when the next bit of drama will occur.” –Publishers Weekly
Corporate turnaround specialist Morgan Spencer, dubbed the “success guru,” has a Midas touch in business. But losing his wife sent him to the brink, and his two-year-old daughter, Livie, is all he’s living for–until they encounter a woman whose trouble just might draw him out of his own.
Four years ago Quinn Reilly did the right thing. Now the man her testimony put in jail is getting out. Though she has put up barriers to protect herself and those around her, she has come to care for the Spencer family, especially the winsome Livie and her mercurial father. Unwilling to put them at risk when the threats begin, she requests something she hopes the super-successful Morgan might be able to deliver.
Fixing problems is what Morgan does best, but his counter proposal takes them in a direction neither is equipped to handle. Determined to confront the past, will they survive to build a future?

My take on this book:

After the loss of his wife Jill, Morgan Spencer's world revolved around taking care of his daughter Olivia. It's been two long years of dealing with the pain, and heartache. When he meets Quinn Reilly, he feels drawn to her, but isn't sure his heart is ready for a relationship. Quinn is running from something from her past though, and doesn't want to put Livvie, or Morgan in danger, but when the past meets up with the present and Quinn's life is on the line, will Morgan be able to save her, and if he does can they have a future together?

Kristen Heitzmann weaves a story of suspense,romance along with a story of healing  to make for a page turning read. The plot easily drew me in. The characters in this one seemed very real, their feelings and emotions just rush off the pages. I could easily understand Morgan, grieving  unsure of whether to risk his heart again. I thought Quinn was such a strong female lead,and it was great to see both characters grow and change as the story progressed.
While I read the first book in this series titled "Rush Of Wings" somehow I missed the second book in the series titled "The Still of Night," although it didn't stop me from understanding this story, and I would say that "The Breath of Dawn" can easily be read as a stand alone work. 

Anyone who enjoys a contemporary setting filled with, suspense,mystery, romance with amazing characters, and a story that will leave you thinking about the characters long after you read the final page then your certainly going to want to read "The Breath of Dawn" by Kristen Heitzmann.
