Trouble is, once he's tasted her fiery passion, he wants it all...

Cassie O’Malley has made her usual visit to her friends, Duncan and Catherine, only this visit is more than she expected. First Catherine goes into labor and Cassie is there to help deliver the baby. Second, another friend of Duncan and Catherine’s is visiting, Sam Colter, an ex-Texas Ranger. In spite of everything going on, there seems to be an instant attraction between Sam and Cassie. Both are widowed, Cassie’s husband died and Sam’s wife and two daughters were murdered.

Ten years prior to this visit Sam’s wife and daughters were kidnapped by Frank and Harry Bordon; unfortunately the kidnapping led to the deaths of Sam’s family. Sam caught Frank Bordon and watched him hang, but his brother Harry is still out there, searching for Sam who he blames for his brother’s execution. Harry wants him dead. Sam has given up looking for Harry and decides to settle down in Creede, Colorado near his friend, Duncan. He knows that if Harry finds him he will be able to count on Duncan to have his back.

Cassie runs a horse ranch and has two children.  She has a great deal of responsibilities and asks Sam to be her foreman. Since he has no other plans and likes the idea of being around Cassie and her two children, he accepts.

It is great reading about the old West and seeing how a horse ranch is run.   Cassie has beautiful stallions she is training to race in Kentucky.  Her Mustangs are being trained for the army. There is a lot of work, but Cassie takes it all in stride.  She is a very strong woman in more ways than one. With two children and a ranch, is there time in her life for a man?

But Harry is out there, getting close. This is the old West where anything can happen.  Are Cassie and the children in danger? Cassie and Sam deserve to find love, can they find it with each other?

I am not a fan of Westerns but this series is not just about cowboys and Indians it is about love and family. I also loved the way the author brought you up to date on Duncan and Catherine who we first met in book one of the Tame series. Each of her books so far have had wonderful secondary characters that you hope to meet again in future books.  Some of the cutest scenes in the book involve Cassie’s daughter, two year old Sarah.  She is a non-stop talker and some of her remarks are priceless.
