Two Hearts
James Eric Richey

Jaxon Tagget is a cattle-rancher’s son, born and raised on the Double T, just outside of Dillon, Montana. In love with his high-school sweetheart, Annie, Jaxon proposes on graduation night, presenting her with a wedding ring made from gold he mined himself. Annie accepts immediately, to the horror of her bitter, man-hating mother.
Jaxon’s a wonderful husband, but the warnings of Annie’s mother linger in the young bride’s ears. And it doesn’t help that women continue to fall all over the markedly handsome Jaxon.
Unaware of his wife’s persistent doubts, Jaxon is struggling with his own troubles when he finds out his dad is sorely in need of money to save the ranch. But hope glimmers gold when he rediscovers the old mine on the Double T.

While Jaxon travels to verify the mine’s productivity, Annie grows increasingly suspicious. Is Jaxon’s absence what it seems, or does he have another, less faithful reason for his travels? When Annie sees a picture of the beautiful laboratory owner whom Jaxon is visiting, she’s sure the only gold he’s interested in is long, blond hair. Is Annie right, or will it be her doubts that forever sever their Two Hearts?


“This represents all the money I have in the world, two dollars and sixty-three cents. I gladly and willingly give you all the money I have. I know it isn’t much.” He closed his fist around the money and raised his hand to his chest, just over his heart. “But, what I do offer you is every beat of my heart, today and every day, from now until forever. I’m yours, and I promise I will always be yours. I love you, Annie Bradley. Will you marry me?”

Taken from approximately page 56 of the ebook based on my calculations.


  1. Too bad her mother's bitterness has left it's mark on her daughter. I hope there's a happy ending.

  2. Pretty cover and romantic tease. Hope you are enjoying it and have a good weekend.

  3. I've been enjoying more western style books lately and this one looks interesting. I just hope Annie isn't too suspicious as that can definitely bring a book down a bit. Thanks for sharing and enjoy!

  4. Sigh.What a beautiful proposal. I think I'm in love with Jaxon!
    My Friday post features The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.

  5. Oh this is just an adorable little quote! I'm in love with it. Happy reading!
    And thanks for stopping by my blog the other day:)
