Mary Dunleavy hoped she would never see the infuriating cowboy who saw her at her worst, but Zane Brody is a fellow passenger on the train taking her to Laramie where she will be the town schoolteacher. He even lives in that town. Still, it could be worse, and indeed, it gets that way rapidly. First, Indians board the train and take Mary's doctor brother away with them to cure their chief. So, Mary decides to horse-nap Zane's thoroughbred and find her sibling. Naturally, he comes after her and the two, along with a goat named for the devil, decide to try and rescue the doctor. Before they can, other Indians capture them so they can have someone to torture. Although Mary manages to escape, she knows she can't leave the man she has come to love trapped.

*** Zane and Mary hurtle from one misadventure to another without stopping. Though the scenes at the Indian camp tend to have a very graphic feel, there is not much actually "shown". Ms. Holby is adept at painting scenes by implication. It's refreshing to find a romance that does not go too far into the red zone. ***

As the last remaining bachelor among all his friends, Zane Brody could always be counted on for incessant high jinks, indiscriminant womanizing, and irresistible charm. So when he set out for New York to retrieve a valuable thoroughbred mare to Laramie, he had no doubt he could handle any female he encountered, whether equine or human. What he didn't reckon on was an infernal goat called Lucifer and an independent-minded schoolteacher named Mary Dunleavy. The goat butted him off the train and ate his hat, while the woman batted her eyelashes and appropriated his heart. As Mary took off across the plains on Diamond Glory, Zane found his head spinning, his certainties overturned, and his love life in a... Whirlwind

In 1867 Laramie, Wyoming Territory, following a roll with Maybelle, Zane Brody reflects on how his friends are all recently married. Chase has Jenny (see WIND OF THE WOLF); Ty is wed to Cat (see CROSSWINDS); Cole and Grace make a nice couple (see CROSSWINDS); Jake and Shannon (SEE WINDFALL) are together; and now Caleb has married Amanda (see FORGIVE THE WIND). Only he remains single and though he ponders marriage, he likes his carefree life as the centerfold of hunks.

Indians raid the train that was bringing new schoolteacher Mary Dunleavy and her doctor-brother to Wyoming. Zane finds himself wanting to help Mary rescue her sibling taken captive by the Indians. However, their efforts go astray when they become prisoners too. After escaping, they fall in love, but neither feels worthy of the emotion so they hide how they feel from one another.

WHIRLWIND is a delightful western romance that completes the Wind saga. The story line is at its best when it concentrates on the lead couple especially during humorous interludes like a goat assaulting the hero. The final pairing is a delight as two independent souls battle love, one another, and rogues. Though too many flashbacks slow down the tale, Cindy Holby provides a fun finish to a saga that started several years ago (see CHASE THE WIND).

western romance set in 1857. This is an enjoyable book about freewheeling Zane Brody who travels from Wyoming to New York to take possession of a valuable horse. He didn't count on having to deal with an independent-minded schoolteacher and a cantankerous goat. Funny and interesting.
