Two pairs of brothers...two strong but emotionally sensitive women...a gang of friends of dubious intentions...hidden treasure...and you have all the elements for two parallel stories (one in the old west and one in present day) of brotherly love, betrayal, love lost and found and redemption.
This was unconventional in that it wasn't really an historical western or a biker romance but rather just two tales of brothers who fall in love with the same woman and despite years of rivalry and at times hatred for each other, there is a deep understanding of flesh and blood sibling love, no matter what else might have occured. In each story, one brother is a lawman and the other an outlaw of sorts but as we find out they are more similar than not...each possessing a part of them that is goodness while also having a bit of not so good intentions inside.
I really can't explain too much more about the book without ruining the twists and giving too much away but this is one of those stories that does have a common thread and tie together in not just a spiritual way but also a tangible one.
I actually found myself really loving the old days western chapters almost more than the modern day Maddox ones...they were really exciting and sexy (something about an armed, masked bandit is really kinda hot)!
I would recommend this one to biker and cowboy romance readers...and maybe even just anyone that may enjoy a good love story that survives the test of time.

I have to agree with another reviewer when she said that she was more interested in the historical story in the end than Mad's story. I found myself the same way. It was interesting to see the little connections to modern day. But I really wanted to see how the old story would pan out more than anything.
I read a lot while I was falling asleep so I kind of missed the resolution of the safe. Who in modern day found and moved that safe? I mean it's not a pivitol plot point obviously because I still read on and it didn't wreck the story for me to miss that part really.
So if you have a been sitting on the fence about this book trying to figure it out or how it fits. Just go for it. Live a little. It's kind of a fun read.
We’ve all heard about history repeating itself and through the ages there have been many examples. This book tells the heart wrenching love story of two brothers and the women they loved. One romance occurs over 100 years ago (1888) and one in the present. The setting is the same, Contention City, Arizona and the present characters are connected in some way to characters from the past.
Annika Larson travels to the Wild West from the east to be a school teacher. Fate puts her in the path of Mercer, an outlaw who is part of a brotherhood of other outlaws who skirt the law and live dangerously. There is that immediate connection or spark between the two but Annika resists it. Then she is thrown into Mercer’s brother’s arms, James the town marshal, the supposedly good guy. Both men fall in love with Annika. There’s strife between the brothers even before Annika came into the scene. They love each other but there’s so much conflict since they grew to be men. Annika makes a very bad decision based on her own incorrect interpretation of something that occurs with Mercer and marries James in a fit of anger. An action that she will forever regret.
Maddox McLeod is a member of the Defiant MC, a band of brothers who skirt the law and are not necessarily the good guys. His brother, Jensen, is a cop. They were super close growing up but a woman split them apart. Maddox’s first love, Gabriella de Campo, also made a terrible decision that forever changed all of their lives.
The book covers a tale of vanquished love and an eerie case of history repeating itself 100 years later. I do not usually like books that jump from the past to the present but the author did a magnificent job of drawing me into this story and marveling at the similarities between the brothers and the women they loved. I was enthralled but I was also sad. I felt their emotions and their heartache. There’s suspense, mystery and angst figuring out who is the bad guy and trying to figure out if there will be a HEA.
This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. It’s really not about the MC, other than the parallel of Maddox being in a band of brothers who love and support him. The story occurs in Maddox’s hometown and the MC shows up at the end to help him (present) just as Mercer’s band of outlaws show up to help him at the end.
Two wonderful love stories that make you question why people are so quick to make the wrong decisions that make them miserable and wreck their lives. At least some people do get a chance to correct the past and live happily ever after.
I highly recommend this book and would rate it more than 5 stars for me.
