About the Book
She’s finally claimed her independence . . . how far will she go to keep it?
A brilliant engineer, Jilly Stiles has been educated since childhood to help run her father’s lumber dynasty. With the company safe from her stepfather after the marriages of her two sisters, Jilly can now focus on her dream of building a mountaintop railroad–and never marry.
Nick Ryder came into Jilly’s life when he saved her mother from her no-good stepfather, and he’s prepared to protect Jilly from anything that threatens to harm her–as long as he keeps his heart from getting involved.
But when a cruel and powerful man goes to dangerous lengths to make Jilly his own, she must make a decision between her safety and her hard-won independence.

In My Opinion
In A Model of Devotion by Mary Connealy, readers finally get some insight into Jilly Stiles’s reluctance to marry along with a satisfying completion to the series.
Let’s talk about Nick first. I’ve been rooting for this guy since he walked onto the page in book one of the series, and even more so as I learned more about him in this story. He’s a protector by nature, yet he gives Jilly the space she needs and authority her intelligence demands. He’s willing to stand by her side instead of standing in front of her.
When sabotage invades Jilly’s plans to build a railroad, Nick and Jilly team up to uncover which detractors remain working for the Stiles family. It’s not always as clear cut as it seems on the surface.
Connealy once again delivery a book filled with likable characters who form a bond and come together for the good of the whole while finding their individual happily-ever-afters.
