We learn a lot about Rawley in THUNDER POINT. He has had a

I truly love this book and this series. Robyn has a way of
pulling you right
in from the first page and never letting you go. You will
be up all night
turning the pages. The people of Thunder Point are
like one big happy
family and they are always quick to help out one another.
THE HERO is a great
story of love, forgiveness, starting over, trust, and true
friendship. I can't
wait to read the next book!

willingness to help someone in need.

heal Devon's wounded heart.
Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in

it...and sometimes, you find a hero.
