Sugar Creek Cattle Company, Wyoming
Years ago, Nick Daniels and Cheyenne Holbrook were teenage sweethearts who ran off together to get married. Her father stopped the wedding, and neither has seen the other since. That night, Nick was forced out of town by Cheyennes rich, powerful father. Now, thirteen years later, Nicks back in town, and the tables are turned. It is he who is rich and powerful. And one of his employees is none other than a presently poor Cheyenne, who also is taking care of her father, now an invalid.
Nick realizes now that he was too young to be the kind of husband Cheyenne needed, but it still doesnt stop him from trying to get close to her again. Will he get the one thing he didnt get all those years ago: Cheyenne into his bed? He certainly has the means now; he recently learned that his unknown father was wealthy and his maternal grandmother has given him a ranch. Cheyenne, for her part, has had it rough the past several years. The new Nick shakes her to the core. How can she still be attracted to him after the abrupt way he left town all those years ago? Will Nick exact his revenge against Cheyennes father?
If you have read the first book in The Illegitimate Heirs series, ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN ENEMIES, then youre aware of the setup with Nick finding his new family of two half-brothers and a grandmother. REUNION OF REVENGE is Nicks story and is about his return to the town where he grew up -- and was banished from. Nick and Cheyenne were undoubtedly too young to marry back then, but their love has never really vanished. We see very little of what Nick and Cheyenne did in the intervening years, and the story of a father who is manipulative is perhaps an old plotline, but its written with much emotion that will draw readers into the story. Thrown in is a bit of whodunit in the form of mysterious acts that are blamed on Nick. Can Cheyenne believe Nick when he says hes not the bad boy of his youth?
Kathie DeNosky once again delivers a great story filled with emotion, laughter, and characters who will do whatever it takes to beat the odds. REUNION OF REVENGE is less about revenge than Nick and Cheyenne discovering that their love didnt die, but rather, it matured with age. For a heart-warming story that proves to be a fascinating tale of young lovers reuniting, dont miss REUNION OF REVENGE.
It was above average but more than predictable.
