Shane McCall has dedicated his life to rising above the smear his father put on his last name. As sheriff of Marietta, Montana, his reputation is finally above reproach and he aims to keep it that way. A difficult task made impossible since he made the mistake of kissing Silver Adams. Courting a saloon owner is not Shane’s idea of respectability, but when his brother comes to town and turns her head, Shane realizes the only arms Silver belongs in are his.
Silver Adams has stared down many challenges, but when she moves to Montana, she finally has independence and a sense of pride. With her close circle of friends and a successful saloon, the only thing missing from her life is love. When Silver finds everything she has been looking for in the arms of an upstanding lawman, she feels her dreams have come true until her disreputable past threatens all Silver holds dear, and now Silver must make the hardest decision of her life—telling Shane the truth.
this is Silver Adams and Shane McCall ’s story.
Silver’d taken as much time preparing a delicious basket for the auction as she had dressing and curling her hair.
Shane is both a handsome man and the sheriff, there was no denying he made an attractive prospect for a husband.
A Sheriff’s Passion by Michelle Beattie is a 3 star book.

Shane, the upstanding sheriff hero, was a little too much on his high horse at times for my taste. Yeah, I get the reasons that were prompting him to prove to the world he was definitely a better man than his no account, deceased, Daddy Dearest. But living in denial about his feelings for Silver, the heroine, for so l-o-n-g ended up basically shooting himself in the foot, caused her unnecessary heartache, and another decent OW tears, as well. In fact, if he had manned up early on, chances were Silver would have shared her “stopped him dead in his tracks to the point he pushed her away” dirty secret long before it caused him to question her character. Yes, there lies another problem. I’m sorry to say this guy didn’t stand by his woman. After the blood and bullets start to fly though, he does come to his senses and sets to make things right.
Silver was pretty cool in my eyes. Well, except for the explanation she finally owned up to regarding her past. Honestly, I’m conflicted how I felt about that. I lean towards shaking my finger and head at her to let her know she shouldn’t have done what she did in the first place. I liked the fact she ran a saloon and not a brothel though. You see, this blonde beauty ran a respectful watering hole, even if others assumed otherwise. She peddled booze, not hanky panky. If I could high five her for that classy choice, I honestly would.
Mitch, the black sheep brother, played his role perfectly. But between you and me, I’m thinking he needs more of a rebel of a woman than the one I highly suspect he’s going to wind up with in the next book. That missy there, well, she just cries too often and at the drop of a hat, IMHO.
With a tad too much drama in Silver’s past and stereotypical outlaw bandit predictability, I now find myself wringing my hands wondering how to fairly rate this book. My heart is still a little sore at Shane for being such a yellow belly about choosing what he wanted over what people might think. He also said some mighty hurtful things to her, as well. Silver seemed awfully quick to up and forgive him, too.
So I’ll just leave my final comment stating if standard western romance is your thing, you’ll likely want to check into this book. Since I haven’t read the first two books in this series, I’m not sure about them. I must confess the storylines didn’t appeal to me or catch my attention the way this one did, however, so I’ll likely skip them.
Though western romance is not my usual genre, I do dabble in it from time to time. So maybe that makes me more objective or harder to please. I’m not sure which. Well, now I’m just confusing myself, so it is definitely time to end this review. Here’s to hoping I’ve somehow helped you decide if this book is a good fit for you.

Besides the community drama that has become part of this Historic Marietta series there, the past is catching up to Silver in her present life. It makes for an emotional read that is as moving as it is well-written.
An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley.
Silver has a life that she’s quite proud of now in Montana. She has her saloon, a close knit group of people she can call friends and an interesting man to see what the future might hold in store for them both. Until the past that she’d believed she had left far behind comes back with the intention of destroying all she now holds dear. Can the love that is growing between Silver and Shane survive the truth that Silver must tell him about?
Shane and Silver’s story is going to be an emotional ride. They both have things in their pasts that they’d rather keep hidden, forgotten and ignored. Yet that’s not always possible. I enjoyed A Sheriff’s Passion very much. I believe this series is best read in order for it builds somewhat on the people and friendships we’ve met before. Besides, they’re great stories.
