Library JournalCord McDowell learned during six years in prison not to look people in the eye. Now he’s back home in Harmony, TX, and wide-eyed and staring at neighbor Nevada Britain as she makes him a proposition he perhaps should, but doesn’t want to, refuse: she’ll hand over to him a parcel of long-contested land, plus split with him the profits from his farm and her Boxed B Ranch, if he’ll marry her and run the Boxed B for eight months. Cord knows there’s a catch where the thrice-married wildcat Nevada is involved. But Nevada agrees to Cord’s one condition: that she sleeps with him in his bed every night. A bargain made with the devil has some dangerous as well as some interesting strings attached.
Verdict Thomas (Chance of a Lifetime) returns to her small Texas town to bring together a resolute young man whose youth was stolen from him and the spoiled rancher’s daughter who suffered a different kind of punishment living with an unloving father and a neglectful mother. The book features the kooky and resourceful Harmony folk and includes a secondary story of love found too late. Thomas is a sure bet; for all romance collections.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
