This wasn't one of my favorite books by Sandra Brown. I think some of her other books are much better. I figured this one out halfway through and wasn't surprised by the ending.

When Drifter Jack Sawyer shows up at a Texas ranch looking for work, Delray Corbett is a little wary of him. He doesn't know Jack, but Delray needs a hired hand to help out around the ranch. He would also like to have an extra person on board since hearing is step-son, Carl Herbold, has escaped a prison where he was serving a life sentence for murder. Delray doesn't want Carl hurting his daughter-in-law, Anna, or his Grandson, David. Anna is attracted to Jack as soon as she meets him. Being deaf since birth, Anna is used to being treated differently. But Jack treats her like a normal person, even trying to learn sign language to help communicate with her.

I found this book very interesting but it may not be for everyone. There are several very violent scenes involving Carl Herbold. I know some people were turned off by this, but it really just showed me this character had absolutely no redeeming qualities. There is a sub-plot involving retired Sheriff Ezzy Hardge who is investigating a 20-year-old unsolved murder that he can't forget. My favorite portions of the book were Anna and Jack's relationship, and also his relationship with her son, David. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
