    1. I really enjoyed Loving Jenny, it was really short and sweet.Lucas Tate is a really good guy, loves and takes care of his grandmother, is an over-worked veterinarian and doesn't want to leave his small-town, the reason he is not married.He runs into Jenny May, one of the people he thinks his grandmother has taken in and kisses her. He soon finds out that she is not a user, instead she seems wounded and fragile.Jenny never had emotional security growing up and joined a relief organization when sh [...]

    2. Anyone who is familiar with Theresa Weir's romances knows she writes about fractured characters. As far as I know LOVING JENNY was her second book and one of four Silhouette's that she wrote early in her career. Jenny May has a secret. Something she doesn't want to share so she takes up on an offer made by a kind elderly lady she met on a recent trip. She is going to move temporarily to Iowa and take it easy. The problem that arises is the grandmother doesn't tell her grandson, Lucas Tate. Luke [...]

    3. Wonderful story from one of my favorite authors. It is not as dark and angsty as her other ones I read even though it has a heroine who is struggling to overcome almost death experience of being buried alive in the earthquake. Jenny, the heroine, wanted to put this experience behind and took an offer from an acutance to move to the acutance’s Iowa house for a summer. There she met a local veterinarian, Luke, the acutance’s grandson. I really liked the main characters interactions, the quirky [...]

    4. A quiet lovely romance between a traumatized heroine and a guarded hero. Although I wish it were a little longer I really enjoyed that fact that is was a quick read because you need these every once in a while.

    6. i rather liked it though it was slow, and they shared a more or less platonic kind of love. jenny needed therapy badly as she had been disturbed seriously. she was like a frail little waif and i got really no clue what attracted lucas to her. but it was really sweet how he grew to care for her and was der for her when she had no one else.
