Having said that, I LOVED this book. The characters were engaging, the romantic tension was handled extremely well, and you really wanted to see how it all turned out, even though you knew there'd be a happy ending. Sure, it may be a little dated, but it has a very satisfying ending and you enjoy the journey along the way.
I keep coming back to this book like an old friend, and have read it four or five times. It is a lovely way to spend a cozy evening.
So go on, meet the Mackenzies... And get ready to buy all the rest of their stories... You'll love them.
Their attraction is instantaneous as he warms he in his house and he is struck by her innocence and vitality. But he insists that nothing can happen. He is an ex-con, accused of rape and cleared but not approved of by the town. People will talk if they were to be together. He is also a half breed Indian which makes the townspeople very uncmfortable. But Mary is like a moth to a flame. She cannot stay away. She tutors his son Joe to get him into the Airforce Academy. People start to talk and their disapproval grows. A rapist attacks Mary and Wolf is determined to catch the man responsible even though at first he is accused of the crime.
While they try to stay away from each other....they cannot and their attraction grows. Eventually she becomes "his" woman and they fall in love.
It is a beautiful story and the beginning of the amazing MacKenzie series by Linda Howard. It is characterized by strong, alpha males....innocent but strong and spunky women. it is a great series and one that you can really settle into.
I highly recommend this to anyone. Other books in the series include: MacKenzie's Mission, The MacKenzie Family, and A Game of Chance.
