I loveeed this book! This is my first Ms.Henke book and I am reading the reviews of her other works to see wich one will be next and if it will have the same trill!!
What I like best was the story of Collin and Maggie more than of Eden and Wolf (very tender and deep of the feelings those two).But Colin was just IRRESISTIBLE !!!!
Will read it AGAIN in a near futute!!!

This was my first by Shirl Henke and I liked it. She is the author of scores of Western romances, has been a RITA Finalist and won seven awards from Romantic Times. The novel reflects her great research and she pays attention to historical details which is important to me. While this one didn't quite rise to 5 stars, I can recommend it as an interesting portrayal of the American west. Set in the late 19th century in the Arizona Territory, it is a tale of second chances.

Maggie Worthingon was once a Boston debutante who made a bad decision and eloped with a smooth talking southerner--who had no intention of marrying her. Abandoned and forced into prostitution, she finds a way out of that world to become a madam in a successful bordello. She wants no man in her bed but longs for respectability. When she meets Colin McCrory she thinks she has found her ticket out. Colin was born in Scotland of a poor family but came to America. First he became an Indian scalper killing Apaches, but he hated the work and rose above it to become a successful rancher who now treats the Indians fairly, even looking out for their welfare on the White Mountain Reservation. A widower, he has no plans to marry having worshiped his first wife. When his daughter is taken by a man who worked for him, a smooth gunslinger, Colin sets out to bring her back. He takes with him a half Apache named Wolf Blake, a hired gun. In searching for the outlaws' hideout, they seek the help of Maggie who knows the area. In exchange for her help, and comfort for his daughter once found, Maggie demands Colin marry her. Colin wants Maggie in his bed, but he has no desire to marry a whore.

It's a good story but there were a few things that didn't quite ring true for me and it was all in the relationships.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
There’s a great deal going on in these 448 pages: a complex story, romance, adventure and a mystery. Colin McCrory is the complicated widower in Arizona Territory who has sworn never to remarry. His daughter, Eden, has been kidnapped from Colin’s extensive ranch and taken into Mexico.

While searching for Eden, Colin meets Maggie Worthington, a beautiful bordello madam, who makes a shocking offer: She will find where his daughter is being held and help Eden after her father frees her -- if Colin will marry her. Realizing the futility of searching such a wide swath of Mexico, Colin reluctantly agrees.

It is obvious that there is an attraction between Maggie and Colin. He has political ambitions and needs a lady at his side; he also realizes he has no idea how to help Eden (she will be a pariah in society and worse; she will be emotionally and physically scarred by her ordeal at the hands of her abductors).

When Eden is freed, Maggie understands her needs and helps her come to terms with her situation. Maggie is the essence of a fashionable and genteel lady, in spite of her profession. She was raised as a lady in Boston and was led astray by a man she thought she loved.

Colin, still chafing from being coerced to marry a prostitute, refuses to honor his promise. However, forces beyond his control intrude on this stubborn Scot’s wishes.

This is just one of the story lines that courses through this book. This is a long story that has lots of action and drama. It kept my attention throughout the novel. 4.5 stars

It's been a while since I read this book, but it's a book that has stuck with me. I would definitely read it again. It had a lot of action and romance of both the lead and the secondary characters. It pulled at all of my emotions.

This book is a good old fashioned western. I strongly recommend it.

Loved this book. Colin was so great and Maggie had sure come a long way. Wolf and Eden were nice too but I think Eden's words of love were a little much considering she was only 17. I loved Eileen and her scottish brogue. It was perfect. Overall, a wonderful read.
