The highly enjoyable latest volume of Miller's popular McKettrick series stars older half-brother Holt McKettrick. Learning that his former Ranger partner, Gabe Navarro, is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father, Buffalo Soldier John Cavanagh, is about to lose his land, Holt ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. In San Antonio, he meets a lively lady named Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding and burned her bridal gown in the center of town. Thrown out of her father's house, she's hoping to pick up some cattle and start a small ranch of her own. Holt thinks she's out of her mind, but he revises his opinion after watching Lorelei learn to ride a mule named Seesaw, play a cutthroat game of poker, and all in all start to look mighty delectable. Cavanagh's land will be fine and Navarro won't hang—but is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro. Strong characterization and a vivid western setting make for a fine historical romance.

*Starred Review* Holt McKettrick leaves his mail-order bride at the altar when a rider appears at the Triple M Ranch in the Arizona Territory with the news that John Cavanagh, the buffalo soldier who raised him, is being forced off his land and that his friend Gabe is about to be hanged. Riding hard, Holt reaches San Antonio just as Lorelei Fellows torches her wedding dress. The daughter of the judge who sentenced Gabe to hang, Lorelei refuses to marry a sleazy lawyer and takes refuge on the tiny dilapidated ranch left to her by her mother. Holt has to head to Mexico to bring back the evidence to free Gabe and the cattle needed to keep John Cavanagh's ranch from being taken over by a greedy schemer. And what a posse Holt assembles: Cavanagh's sweet, mentally challenged daughter; Gabe's very pregnant lover; and Lorelei. Intrigue, danger, and greed are up against integrity, kindness, and love in this engrossing western romance. Miller has created unforgettable characters and woven a many-faceted yet coherent and lovingly told tale. Patty Engelmann

It's important, although not completely necessary, to read the McKettrick series in order. There's enough back story provided in each book to understand the premise individually,... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lori

I loved this book and wanted Linda Lael Miller to continue on with this family. I was very upset that she didn't. I wanted closure on the family, not just that they all died.Published 4 months ago by sienagirl
