Having just finished this book, I now find that it is the second part of THE TEXAN AND THE LADY. I havent read that book yet, so this review will be based on what I took from the single work.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book; however, it was a little light on plot. Sean Atherton and True McCormick were so interesting that it seemed to overcome the holes in the plotting.
What holes? In the first chapter, Sean is going to take a 2 week vacation to find his older brothers killer
(1) ten years after the fact.
(2) Hawk Sloan (the brothers killer) isnt really mentioned again until the last chapter.
I really enjoyed the fact that True McCormick seriously underestimates the man she selects to impersonate Granite Westwind. Seth is very winsome because he is everyman just an ordinary person asked to do extraordinary things: being a hero.
