    I don't have this ebook.

    But this book is really good. I borrowed from the library and my only disappointment was having to give it back. I liked it so much I named one of my own characters after Heath...actually I named mine Holden Renshaw and-surprise surprise- he is a werewolf!

    Great Historical Paranormal Read!

    As a mail-order bride, Rachel Lyndon feels she can forge a new life with respectable, sincere Jed MacCarrick who's looking for a helpmate. She travels from Ohio with nothing but determination, only to find her fiance missing and a stranger trying to buy her off. Rachel heads for the ranch to get some answers. What she finds are two contrary men -Sean MacCarrick and Holden Renshaw -who are not only at odds with each other, but also put out by her appearance on the rance. Unwilling to be run off easily, Rachel declares she's already married, so she can wait for Jed's return and explanation.

    Holden Renshaw is a man without a home, even at Dog Creek Ranch, though his work as a foreman there is valued and impeccable. Jed certainly trusts him more than he does his no-account nephew, Sean, but he also knows the truth about Holden's past, which means Holden's time at Dog Creek Ranch is limited. After Holden discovers Jed's dead body, he suspects foul play and keeps the knowledge to himself. Afterall, he's got a newborn son with no mother, and he's gotta figure out how he's going to see the boy settled. Thankfully, Rachel, who he suspects is lying about the marriage, is willing to care for the baby till he figures out what to do next.

    Sean McCarrick's determined to get rid of both of them so he can claim his uncle's ranch and become the big-shot he believes himself to be. And he's willing to do whatever is necessary to have his way. When a bounty hunter comes to town, looking for Heath Renier, Sean discovers that the best way to handle Holden is to reveal his true identity and watch him hang.
    This story is a classic western with a twist -Holden Renshaw is a werewolf, so this story is also a paranormal. At first, I was afraid that would prove to be a bit gimmicky, but I was quite surprised by how the author handled this dynamic. The central story isn't about a werewolf. Rather, the story is about a man who's struggled to come to terms with and find a place in the world for himself because he is so very different from everyone else. Holden grew up knowing he was abandoned by his mother, and he was abused by the people who fostered him. Somehow, he managed to survive by thieving, killing when necessary, and generally carving out a solitary life for himself. The wolf is just one aspect of who this tough man is.

    Rachel isn't a meek woman, either, though she's determined to find a place at Dog Creek Ranch. She's lived a rough life of her own, made real-world mistakes and overcome some serious adversity. And she's a survivor, too, who keeps her focus on her goals. No silly nonsensical antics like so many historical heroines offer. Even the romance is a steady build and development.

    This is a refreshing historical romance with a strong plot and realistic characters. The paranormal story aspect flavors the story without running away with it . It also looks like we may see some future Renier-family werewolf stories. I look forward to reading more by this author.

    This is an exciting werewolf historical romance

    In 1881 in Pecos County, Texas, Holden Renshaw finds his boss, owner of the Dog Creek Ranch, dead in what looks like a riding mishap. Holden has doubts about it being an accident as Jedediah McCarrick was a superb rider. He finds the bags that Jedediah hid as if the man knew he was going to be killed. Inside the bags are his three wills with the unsigned last one giving the ranch to a mail order bride Rachel Lyndon coming from Ohio. The first dated will gives the spread to Jedediah's nephew Sean while the last signed will bequests all to Holden.

    Rachel arrives and insists she is Jedediah's wife; Holden knows that is a lie, but says nothing. Holden and Rachel are attracted to one another, but distrust each other. However, she proves to be really good with his baby recently dumped on him by a dying prostitute. Each has secrets as she was kicked out of her home by her grandma and rejected by her lover, but a miscarriage left her barren. He is wanted as the dangerous Heath Renier and can change into the wolf without blinking. Neither expected how far Sean will go to manipulate everyone to do what he wants.

    This is an exciting werewolf historical romance starring two likable but fragile (mentally that is) individuals who feel love arrived at an inappropriate moment. Ironically, Sean, in spite of being over the top of the Guadalupe Mountains, is the most fascinating character in the fast-paced story line. Although a late Ranger twist seems wrong even considering paranormal justice, fans will enjoy this fine tale while wondering what will happen when everyone learns Jedediah is dead.
