Nicholas Braden and Morgan Davis are identical twins, separated at birth. Because one is wanted for murder and the other one is a Texas Ranger, their lives intersect. Neither knows of the others existence.

Ranger Morgan Davis has already had 2 attempts on his life (by bounty hunters) because he is so identical to this man, Nicholas Braden. So, he sets out to find the accused murderer all the way to Wyoming.

This is a rather common plot line but Potter turns it on its head with an amazing array of character studies. As a newborn, Morgan Davis was found in the cellar of a burning cabin, everyone else was dead. He was raised with Texas Rangers and he saw the world in black or white, good or bad.

Nicholas was raised with a band of Gypsy-like nomads who had a travelling Medicine Show. Hes relaxed and loves life; he has a great sense of humor. When accused of murdering an unarmed young son (of the towns cattle baron), Nicholas escapes to Wyoming, starting a ranch, along with his sister Lorilee.

Morgan finds Nicholas and Lorilee in Wyoming and immediately heads them back to Texas. Thus begins a fascinating study of the 3 characters. Lori and Nicholas are constantly probing to find Morgans weaknesses and find none! Lori eventually figures out that she is attracted to Morgan and the feeling is mutual.

This is a powerful story and it makes fascinating turns all the way to the epilogue. This story is well worth the time to read the 430+ pages. 5 stars.

Really good historical American West romance. Lawman Morgan sees his face on a wanted poster. He makes is his mission to find the outlaw Nick in order to stop the bounty hunters on his own trail. Nick and his sister Lorilee just want to make a new life for themselves. When Morgan catches up with them Lorilee can't stop her attraction to him, or her loyalty to her brother. This book was really good. Highly recommended.

Seeing his own face on a wanted poster is more than a little disconcerting to a man who has devoted his life to upholding the law, not breaking it. Separated at birth, Texas Ranger Morgan Davis has no idea that the man he is sworn to bring in for murder is his twin, Nicholas.

Nicholas Braden knows he did not kill the man in Harmony, TX in cold blood, but convincing the cold, unfeeling, duty-bound lawman of that is impossible. Even Nick's sister Lorilee, who has always been able to wrap men around her little finger, is met with a cold shoulder.

Lori will do anything to free her brother, and when her feminine charms don't work, Lori tries to ambush the Ranger, seriously wounding him. A crack shot, Lori aimed for his shoulder and hit it, but Morgan is convinced she tried to kill him. Chained together for the duration of the journey, Lori comes to understand Morgan's unrelenting nature, his duty to a job that has become a way of life, and respects him for his convictions. Lori is soon torn between her love and loyalty for her brother, and her unsettling feelings for the Ranger.

Lorilee Braden couldn't contain her shock when she saw the Texas Ranger who'd tracked her and her brother to Wyoming. Morgan Davis was a dead ringer for her handsome big brother Nick, except for the lawman's cold, hard eyes. Lori knew the Ranger would stop at nothing to take Nick back to Texas for a sham trial, and she would do anything to same her brother from a hangman's rope, even if it meant seducing this heartless lawman and losing her own heart in the bargain.
