Highly Recommended Crystal Braden knows how to keep a secret. She will do anything to keep her Mother and younger brother safe; even if it means lying to the only man she will ever love. Forced into betraying Conn O'Brien, Crystal feels as if her heart is being physically torn from her body. Conn O'Brien journeys to Bushwacker to claim the ranch he thinks is part of his inheritance. Along the way he stops to rescue a fair maiden. Ever a sucker for a damsel in distress, Conn has no idea Crystal is a clever diversion. It is his misfortune to fall instantly in love with the lovely woman, which only seems to aid her cause. The stakes are high, the wages steep, and the outcome uncertain as Conn and Crystal play the game of hearts with winner take all. Evelyn Rogers tells a masterful tale of family greed, divided loyalties, and ultimate betrayal. Ms. Rogers writes with authority and the expertise of a much published author. Her characters come to life, possessing strong personalities and sensuous natures. Her research is impeccable and her dialog rings true. Betrayal packs a wallop, is hard to put down, and sizzles.
