About the Author
New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author of over 40 novels, including the popular TEXAS HEROES series, a five-time RITA finalist and RT BOOKReviews Career Achievement Award winner, Jean Brashear knows a lot about taking crazy chances. A lifelong avid reader, at the age of forty-five with no experience and no training, she decided to see if she could write a book. It was a wild leap that turned her whole life upside down, but she would tell you that though she’s never been more terrified, she’s never felt more exhilarated or more alive. She’s an ardent proponent of not putting off your dreams until that elusive ‘someday’—take that leap now.

Mitch Gallegher is a loner. He had always been the “different” son on the ranch. He did not like ranching and wanted to be anywhere but there. He was a “hellraiser” and it got him into major trouble. He and his father exchanged harsh words and his father told him to get his things and leave. His father was a very hard man. Mitch gathered his things and left the ranch. His mother followed him to try to talk some sense into him when she crashed. Mitch saw her lose control and crash and was back there in a flash. However, he could do nothing but hold her until she died before the paramedics got there. His father was furious and heartbroken and in his pain told Mitch to leave and never to return. He was no longer welcome. He wasn’t to attend the funeral. Mitch took all of this to heart as only a seventeen year old can and left for good. His only regrets were his responsibility in the death of his mother and leaving his brothers behind. He roamed until he reached the Wind River Range of Wyoming and ran into Cyrus Blackburn. Cy was a hermit and allowed Mitch to live with him and learn from him. When Cy got sick, Mitch tried to reach his granddaughter but she would not come to the phone after he had walked three miles to get to one. She never answered Cy’s letters nor did she write him. When Cy died, he left the cabin and all his property to Mitch. Mitch is content to live out his life here since he can’t go home.
Perrie Matheson is Cy’s granddaughter. She loved her grandfather dearly as he was her only relative. However, she married Simon thinking she had found her Prince; but he was an evil and ruthless man. She found out about some of his business dealings. She did bear him a son, Davey. Davey is now five and his father has little use for him. He found someone he wanted to marry more than Perrie so he divorced her and let her keep Davey but she could not leave Boston without his permission. When Perrie finds he intends to take Davey and bring him up as his son, since his new wife could not have children, she ran. She told Elias, the gardener, where she would be but no one else. At any time she could have turned Simon in but he had done a good PR job of making her out to be an unfit mother and wife for someone as prominent as he was. She ran. She ran to her Grandfather’s cabin. They got to within a couple of miles of his cabin and parked in a parking area. They then set out on foot for the cabin. They were at the start of a blizzard and Perrie finally could not make it; but Davey went on to find help. Luckily Mitch heard his cry.
Mitch found Davey and finally Perrie and took them to his house and made sure Davey was taken care of while he took care of Perrie who was quite ill and unconscious. She is very upset when she comes to because she does not trust men. However, they were marooned with Mitch until the snow stopped.
Many things happen while they were in the cabin. Davey is a typical 5 year old and they do manage to get themselves into problems. Perrie wants to leave as soon as possible with Davey but Mitch finally decides he really wants them to stay. How can they stay when he is a murderer without much to look forward to him.
Will Simon find them? What will happen between Perrie and Mitch? How does he get connected to the Galleghers and received an invitation to come back home?
She...as a clueless young secretary falls in love with her boss. She quickly figures out though, that he never loved her, he just wanted to own her. He is mean and although he probably never actually killed someone, he knows people who can do it. People he dislikes always turn up dead. Finally, he finds another he wants to marry and divorces Her; but with the order that she must stay in Boston or he will take their son and she will never see him again.
She manages to escape and heads for the mountain where her grandfather lives. When she arrives, she finds out her grandfather has died and meets Him. The story gets really involved from there out.
This is the second in the series and is just as good as the first! Definitely recommend reading this.
*** SPOILER ***
The book starts off well. Storyline flows and characters seem to be developing as the chapters progress. Perrie's ex is described as evil, dangerous, scary and capable of the worst. Needless to say the fear is indescribable and this theme carries throughout the book. At 65% into the book there are parts that drag on and then BAM you are rushed through the story and reading the epilogue. No evil ex character was introduced. One night of regretful sex leads to heated conversation and then viola book is over.... Evil ex is in jail and everyone is together. REALLY!! Where's the ending.
So yes, I feel slighted and was waiting for a better end.
Luckily and probably thanks to how well book 1 was written, I am intrigued enough to want to finish the series so yes I will be reading book 3.
I was less able to relate to the characters in this novel, than some of the people in the earlier books of the Texas series. But, as usual, the quality of the writing and storytelling drew me in to want to rush through each page to see what was next.
