Book Description

Tortured, beaten and then left to die in the barren Mexican desert, Savannah Star overcame her misery and walked northward to a small border town in Texas where she stayed, building the courage to return to retrieve her son and to punish her husband Diego for his brutal treatment of her. Haunted for almost two years by Diego’s ominous laughter, the last sound that she’d heard as he’d ridden away with her baby in his arms, Savannah was not brave enough to make that journey until a stranger came into town vowing revenge against her husband. She asked the former Texas Ranger to take her along, to allow her to kill her husband and to reclaim her son. At first, Travis was reluctant to have a woman along on such a dangerous mission until he saw that she could shoot a pistol almost as precisely as he could. When he relented, they began their journey southward, toward their shared destiny.

This, my discerning disciples of human passion, is not a typical Historical Romance. Savannah Star is no damsel in distress who relies on a man to defend her honor. She is a woman bent upon making her husband pay for taking her son and for leaving her to die in the desert, even if it means making herself a widow. Travis Corbett is no rogue lover whose only mission is to conquer every female that he encounters. His obsession is achieving vengeance against the man who’d murdered the only woman that he’d ever loved, a man who happens to be Savannah’s husband. Together, they undertake the task of attaining retribution against a man whose mission was to conquer all. And, together, they discover love through their combined destiny, only to find themselves persistently pushing each other away.

This was a very good book. The author was able to incorporate many different aspects yet kept the story on track. I enjoyed the strength of the heroine to save her son and the hero's lesson he learned about revenge. Will look for more by this author.

This is a great book to read and I had hard time putting it down. I'm a huge fan romance books and this book is unique and lots of fun to read. I admire Savannah Star's passion for justice and the character of Travis was right on for this genre. Don Diego Fernandez is what you expect with a name like "El Diablo"! 5-star...must read. You will enjoy this ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Characters with Character April 21, 2013
By Rgabel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story has many layers of plot for a romance. Opening with the end of the Civil War, Savannah's home and soul are ravaged. Obedient to her father's direction, she marries to save the family inheritance never realizing she is but a pawn. Travis has a chance encounter with her, but his focus is getting revenge on her new husband. Travis has a past that haunts him, but eventually resolution of those problems lead him to join forces with Savannah so they can put their demons to rest.

Through a narrative voice, this budding author creates strong characters that you will remember. Meet Tito, El Diablo and little Hannah, just to name a few. I'm looking forward to following this author writing journey as she shows great promise in becoming a polished story teller.
