Romance with mystery , simple story line but very interesting , western setting .
I wanted to read every word as fast as I could to get to the ending , but I would pace myself so I could savor each word.
I loved this book and recommend you to sit and and let Tori Scott take you away to Texas !--Sue Strickland
From the Author
While this is the final full novel in the Lone Star Cowboys series, there will be a follow up novella coming mid-June, 2014. I've loved writing this series, and I may revisit it at some time in the future, but for now, thank you for joining the Morris Springs friends and family as they built their new lives.
