Not one of the author's best. Too predictable and a too much repetition. You can tell it's one of her first books.
Kind of a crazy about a young woman wanting to follow in her father's footsteps and become a detective, she ended up with a lot more than she bargained for....good story hated for it to end.
susan wiggs is another of my newest favorites. she writes romances that sizzle, and this is one of them.
This is one great read. Fun and exciting I found it a real page turner.
Shiloh Mulvane was a womanizing outlaw and trapped Justin McCord was a bounty hunting viper who like to leave quick after he got what he wanted. He wants revenge when he know a woman is who captured him.
One of my favorite authors
All her life, beautiful Shiloh Mulvane has wanted to follow in her father's revered footsteps as one of the Texas frontier's greatest detectives. Now, she finally has her chance - by bringing sexy outlaw Justin McCord to her employer, a powerful judge who wants him to marry the daughter he allegedly compromised. But Justin has other ideas. The secret spy has a mission to complete, one that holds the fate of a free Texas in the balance. He knows what will happen once they reach Houston: he'll be forced into a sham of a marriage that will allow the corrupt judge to destroy the dream of Texas independence he's fought for, unless...he's already married.
In one bold moment, the tables turn, and Shiloh finds herself the captive of a new husband she cannot trust or completely resist. What begins as a desperate ruse soon leaves them both vulnerable to a passion as wild and unforgiving as the land they both love, even as they are pursued by those who would stop at nothing to destroy everything they hold dear...
This book is done in true Texas form with corrupt judges and a secret spy for a mission. The herione is vulnerable in an unfoorgiving land.
I liked the 1843-1846 view of The Republic of Texas and the polical struggles, as well as the adventure and love story of the main characters.
A story of the old West where a spy falls in love with the woman detective who has been hired to bring him to justice.
Not Susan's best work but it was an interesting time in history.
