Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.

When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed? < br>

A Sensational CBA Debut in Contemporary Romance

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother
asks Kate to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance,
takes a leave of absence from her job as a social worker, and the two of them set off.

Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man her grandmother has hired to renovate the house. From the first moment
she meets Matt, Kate can't help but be attracted to him--he's got a combination of good looks and charisma that draw and tug at her. But she knows there's zero chance of a romance between them. Matt's in love with his dead wife, and even if he weren't, Kate realizes that she's way too ordinary for him. For Matt Jarreau is no ordinary guy. Kate discovers that he was once a great NHL hockey player who left the sport when his wife--an honest-to-goodness former Miss America--was diagnosed with brain cancer. Matt's been hiding from people, from God, and from his past ever since. Yet Kate is absolutely determined to befriend him, to try to reach him, to help him in some small way.

No, Kate's not looking for love. She knows better than that by now. But when the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and
Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?

Best fiction
5 stars By Shelley, Jan 25 2015
This book should come with a warning attached to it: "IF YOU START THIS BOOK, YOU MAY FIND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN".  It really is that good.  The characters come to life through Becky Wade's beautifully descriptive writing.  I love the way that Becky weaves God's word into her writing.   I know a writer is gifted if they can make me cry and I know they are very gifted if they can make me laugh.  I laughed out loud many times in this book and felt deep sadness as well.  Romance fiction at its very best.

Interesting story
3 stars By Hannah, Jan 19 2015
I enjoyed the story and characters in this book but found the writing style difficult to read, mainly because there were far too many descriptions. For some reason, the author felt the need to describe what each character was wearing (down to the colour of the shoes) every single time they came into a scene, which was fine the first time but not by halfway through the book when I knew the characters pretty well. Still, descriptions aside, I enjoyed the book. The storyline kept me interested to the end, the characters were believable and the situations intriguing. A good book, though I've enjoyed other books by this author far more than this particular one.

Loved it!
4 stars By Rochelle, NSW, Jun 03 2014
A friend handed me 'My Stubborn Heart' by Becky Wade and I quickly became a fan of this very fresh and entertaining author. Kate Donovan is a young, caring, artistic, fun character. Matt Jarreau is the silent, bound up by woundedness, tall, dark, good looking type. The conversations between these two are at times laugh out loud funny and at other times insightful in there individual journeys in life. 
I love an author who can beautifully string together a picture of a realistic life. Build depth into the characters and show the processing of a God touched journey while infusing the story with good activity and fun. The support characters add brilliantly to this story. You'll love it.

Fantastic!
4 stars By Em Kay, Jul 02 2012
So i'm not usually one to read this genre but I thoroughly enjoyed Becky Wade's debut novel, My Stubborn Heart. She has beautifully entered the scene of contemporary Christian romance writing,through her story of an unlikely romance, which begins to blossom and where strong attraction and love grows despite both individuals trying to resist. If you aren't into historical romance, this one is definitely for you.
