Publisher's Summary

Learning that his former Ranger partner Gabe Navarro is on the way to the gallows on trumped-up charges and that his foster father, buffalo soldier John Cavanagh, is about to lose his land, Holt McKettrick ditches his mail-order bride at their Arizona Territories altar and rides off to Texas. In San Antonio, he meets a lively lady named Lorelei Fellows, who has just called off her own wedding and burned her bridal gown in the center of town. Thrown out of her father's house, she's hoping to pick up some cattle and start a small ranch of her own. Holt thinks she's out of her mind, but he revises his opinion after watching Lorelei learn to ride a mule named Seesaw, play a cutthroat game of poker, and all in all start to look mighty delectable. Cavanagh's land will be fine and Navarro won't hang - but is Lorelei out of the frying pan into the fire? Her father dies vastly indebted to the landowner who had framed Navarro.

Not quite a romance

Good book, but falls short in the romance department. It seemed the story was rushed and could have been stretched out a bit, or needed more detail, to make a better quality of story. Narrorator was fine, but the lead female character was irritating. Found myself rolling my eyes almost everytime she spoke.

It hooked me

This was the first book that I purchased by Ms. Miller. I have just finished listening to it for the second time, and I have purchased 9 other books by the same author. That should say enough about it. I have enjoyed the book both times I've listened. Ms Miller develops strong characters in a good story.
