A RISK WORTH TAKING by Heather Hildenbrand Blog Tour {Giveaway/ Fun Quiz}

A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand
Accendo Press - October 2013

You can read my review HERE

When 22-year-old Summer Stafford’s parents split halfway through her senior year at college, Summer’s world is rocked. Everything she thought she knew—heck, everything she thought she wanted for her own life—feels like a lie. The truth is love is a risk. And the true kind, the kind that lasts, might even be a fairy tale.
Reeling from the divorce, Summer derails her own future by breaking up with her parent-approved boyfriend and giving up her lifelong plans for a big-city career. She moves back home, business degree in hand. Dad needs her to fill the gaps her mother left behind; Summer needs to find who she is outside of the cookie-cutter life that failed so miserably for her parents.
Ford O’Neal’s future involves one person: himself. He doesn’t have a permanent address and he definitely doesn’t commit. To a place or a person. Raised by hippies, he plans just far enough ahead to secure his next stop, this one landing him at a work-study program at Heritage Plantation where he can grow his own herbal and medicinal creations.
Summer is gorgeous and smart and fun to be with, the perfect way to pass five months. It won’t be love—Ford’s got too many things to accomplish, too many places to go, before he settles down. Yet Summer pulls him in, challenging him to rethink his own philosophy.
When Ford’s five months are up, each of them must decide if love is really worth the risk.


Interesting little quiz. Come see if you are a Ford or Casey kind of gal....

On a first date, do you worry more about:   a) what to wear?  or  b) what to say?

Would you call a guy if he didn’t call you after the first date?    a) no way, no call means he’s probably not interested  or    b) definitely. It’s about time the girl made the first move.

Do you prefer riding in a:   a) truck?   or   b) on the back of a dirtbike?

As a pet name, do you want to be called   a) baby or sweetie?   or   b) woman or sexy?

For no other reason than to be thoughtful, you want your man to bring you    a) flowers    or   b) a towel after he turns the hose on you to be funny

Your “first time” with your guy is   a) in hot and humid greenhouse with the smell of fresh dirt all around    or   b) on a towel on the floor beside a taken-apart tractor while country music plays on the stereo in the background.

If you gave more a) answers, you are perfect for Ford! 
If you gave more b) answers, you are Casey’s kind of girl! 


Heather Hildenbrand was born and raised in a small town in northern Virginia where she was homeschooled through high school. She now lives in coastal VA, a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, with her two adorable children. She works from home, part time, as a property manager and when she's not furiously pounding at the keyboard, or staring off into space whilst plotting a new story, she's lying on the beach, soaking in those delicious, pre-cancerous rays.
Heather loves Mexican food, hates socks with sandals, and if her house was on fire, the one thing she'd grab is her DVR player.
