This story had me in tears and on the edge of my seat at times. There certainly wasn't anything simple about Shane and Silver's relationship, especially when Silver's secret past comes in to play. Their passion certainly had me cheering for a happy ending.
I really like how all of the stories have shown the drama, good and bad, that small town Marietta faced, and the friendships and small-town camaraderie that we've come to expect from Marietta.
All of the characters were wonderful.
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.

This story takes us back to the early days of the tiny town of Marietta and pits saloon owner Silver Adams against Sheriff Sean McCall. Both had unbelievably difficult circumstances in their past which made them into the people they are in this story, though each took a different path and Silver is not proud of the route she took. The secret eats away at her, making her fearful that when Shane discovers he'll loathe her.
This story is fast paced, mostly light and with some nice plot twists along the way. The characters are well developed and easy to relate to. Well worth picking up particularly if your passion is historical western romance.
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.
It had me in tears more than once, and scared. But it was lots of good reading even going down paths I didn't want it to go so I would recommend it to mature friends with the advice to read the other two books first, they are so good and the author did such a great job with all the characters and their friendships and how the events tie together.
