Texas 1881

Cassie Stuart was just trying to end a twenty five year old feud. Instead her efforts just made things worse and now both families are threatening to burn her father’s ranch down if she doesn’t get out of Texas pronto. What she needs is someone who can help calm everyone down before things are made even worse. What she ends up with is not the peacemaker she wanted but someone more suited to making widows.

Angel went to Texas as a favor to a friend. Being a hired gun was perfect in the fact that he would be able to keep Cassie safe from harm but with Cassie forbidding him from shooting anyone that is going to make his job that much harder to accomplish. He would prefer to leave Cassie to fend for herself but a sense of duty just won’t allow him to do that. Now he has to figure out how to get Cassie to stop meddling just long enough for her father to come home so that she can go back to her home in Wyoming. What he doesn’t expect is to have to deal with an attraction that he never saw coming. Now he is trying to keep Cassie safe and trying to find a way to make Cassie want him so that maybe they might have a future together.

Cassie has never had many suitors especially with her pet panther keeping most men at a distance. Now with things heating up with the neighbors and between Angel and herself, Cassie is going to be lucky to make it out of this latest predicament unscathed. Cassie keeps trying to tell herself that Angel and her are just too different from each other for things to work out between them but her heart isn’t listening and now she is going to have to find a way to keep Angel around permanently though that is starting to look like it won’t be a hard as she first thought it would be.

This story is a keeper that the reader will enjoy reading over and over. With the humor and action throughout the story this is one that will never get old. This one turns into a fast read since the reader will not want to put it down until the very last page. The way the characters handles each situation that is thrown at them will keep the reader very entertained with the humor that keeps the story moving.

I give this one 5 red roses
