The Montana Hamiltons by New York Times bestselling author B.J. Daniels

He's meant to protect her, but what is this cowboy keeping from her about the danger she's facing?

As the daughter of a presidential candidate, Cassidy Hamilton left the Montana family ranch to escape notoriety and live her own life. But when someone tries to abduct her off a Houston sidewalk, Cassidy finds protection in the tall, dark and sexy form of cowboy Jack Durand. The gorgeous Texan doesn't recognize her, wants nothing from her and is determined to keep her safe.

Jack hates keeping secrets from the beautiful Cassidy, but he knows more about her kidnapping attempt than he's admitting. Forced on the run, Jack and Cassidy begin piecing together a jagged family puzzle, exposing a plot years in the making—one that will either tear them apart or bring them closer together than ever.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this unsatisfying and sometimes distressing contemporary, the Montana Hamiltons (Lucky Shot) are embroiled in a complicated plot that started before the first of the six Hamilton sisters was born. The danger has ramped up since their father entered the presidential race. Meanwhile, their mother, Sarah, who was missing and presumed dead, has returned to their home in Montana with no memory from the years she was absent. Cassidy Hamilton just wants to escape her family drama; instead she’s lured to Houston and nearly kidnapped, but rancher Jack Durand provides timely rescue. Immediately on the run, Jack and Cassidy discover surprising ties that connect their two families and bring them back to Montana to unwisely confront Cassidy’s mother. Daniels alienates new readers by focusing on drawn-out, interwoven story lines with many different characters rather than building a foundation of attraction and trust between Cassidy and Jack. The author further sacrifices believability when the couple is pulled apart and put back together for a forced “happy” ending in a manner that will appall readers seeking a realistic premise in a contemporary romance.

In order to finish the storey it would require you to buy several more books. If in a series each book finishes a story with characters ongoing in next book, okay. This one, however, left you entirely hanging on this one. Otherwise story line is great .

I've been reading for more years than many readers have been alive and I have never read a B.J. Daniels book I didn't like. That being said, I absolutely loved "Into Dust", the 5th book in the Montana Hamiltons saga and the story of Cassidy and Jack. Each book in the series is getting closer to the back story's resolution. Front and center in the series is Buckmaster and Sarah Hamilton's six children each with a story that gives them their HEA and spans over a period of time. That is the great thing about a well constructed book series, each comes with its own HEA and ending, but with a backstory that is unresolved. No one does it better than B.J. Daniels. I would recommend you pick up "Into Dust" or any of the stories in this series if you love cowboys, romance, suspense, and the wide open spaces of Montana. 4.5 Stars!

Into Dust is yet another book in the series of the Montana Hamiltons by author B.J. Daniels. It, itself deserves 4-1/2 stars as it is more than engaging and keeps readers interested until the last page. But, since the author can't seem to not resolve the cliff-hanger I have deducted two stars. The author has written she is enjoying writing this series and unfortunately I don't think the conclusion will not be in the near future as Buck Hamilton and his wife have SIX daughters leaving many more stories yet to be written. I will accept a 3-book series and have read the three for this series; but, I do not like a story to continue through a half-dozen books before the conclusion takes place; and the author still has 3 or 4 more daughters she can write about. Therefore, I doubt I will be purchasing future books.

What a tale! Suspense runs high as danger lurks around every corner. Both the backstory and the current plot were solidly built. Daniels works some really trippy and scary concepts behind it. It’s all so believable. I love seeing Cassidy find herself as an individual rather than as simply half of a set of twins. She is such a warm individual who shines when given the chance. Jack’s strength and cunning drew me to him instantly. Combined, these two had me completely hooked. Not only were the interactions and chemistry between them real and captivating, but they were also such genuine individuals that I couldn’t get enough of their stories. This novel is a fantastic read on its own, but I really would suggest reading the entire series for the full impact. The Sarah mystery is intensifying by leaps and bounds in this novel. Suspense and danger lay around every turn. Daniels has me on edge, dying to know what happens next and trying to figure out the endgame. It’s absolutely perfect. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Jack Durand is visiting his mother’s grave when he notices something quite unexpected: his father, with whom he has a somewhat strained relationship, is there as well, however not to visit his late wife’s grave. Tom Durand is meeting with a man, Ed Urdahl, to whom he gives a lot of money. Jack makes sure he is well hidden, but then he follows Urdahl. Urdahl is watching a house, and when a young woman comes out, Urdahl grabs her and Jack goes after the assailant. Jack takes the woman along with him when he sees a van approaching; it doesn’t look good, and they hide. The woman is Cassidy Hamilton, whose father is running for President, and there are innumerable secrets that Jack and Cassidy realise they knew nothing about, and those unknowns might have them both killed… INTO DUST is the fifth book in The Montana Hamiltons, which I didn’t know going into it, although it can easily be read as a standalone, but I will definitely be reading Honor Bound, the next instalment in the series, because I need to know what will happen next! INTO DUST is an extremely complex story with strong political undertones, and some events derive from an association made decades before. INTO DUST is utterly captivating, and so full of surprises, I never knew what was coming next. I was rather flabbergasted – but overjoyed – at the conclusion. Jack Durand is one cool dude! The romance is wonderful, built on solid ground, and unlike any I have ever seen before, and I hope with all my heart that we will see more of Jack and Cassidy in the upcoming instalments of this series. There is a side story involving other characters, who only play a peripheral role in Jack and Cassidy’s story, and although it was heart-pounding, I’m not quite sure why it was there. As I hadn’t read the previous books, maybe that’s the reason and it was connected to events in the previous books, but still I loved that seemingly unconnected episode as well, and I was rooting madly for the characters, the good guys! And Ms. Daniels understands the workings of the psychotic mind as few authors do. I’m still not over that fantastic ending! A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection

Ending is kind of disappointing all the others in this series have finished the story of main characters but we are left hanging this time Hope the issues are resolved in the next novel. I guess I'm too impatient for all to end well. Glad the sheriff finishes his saga

Into Dust By B.J. Daniels The Hamilton saga continues. B.J. Daniels delves further into the mystery that is Sarah Hamilton. Many questions are answered, but the reader is still left wondering what Sarah’s final objective is and why The Prophecy, an anarchist group is so determined to have Buckmaster Hamilton get to the White House. Jack Durant is in Houston on business and while there, he goes to visit his mother’s grave. To his surprise, his father is there along with another man who works for him. Instead of approaching them, Jack sees his father Tom give a large envelope full of money to Ed Urhdal. Jack is suspicious and follows Ed. It seems that Ed is following a young blonde woman. Before Ed can grab the woman, Jack knocks him out. Jack then offers to help the woman escape. He soon finds out that the woman is Cassidy Hamilton, the daughter of Presidential hopeful Buck Hamilton. The question now becomes, why are they trying to kidnap Cassidy and is Tom, Jack’s father behind it? Jack wants proof of his father’s involvement and breaks into his office. There he finds a locked box containing information and ID and newspaper clippings about a Martin Wagner. Now they must hide out because their lives are in danger because they know too much. Eventually, Jack and Cassidy are captured. In order to save their children’s lives, Sarah and tom agree to let Dr. Venable “wipe their minds.” I have to say, out of all of the books in this series, this one was my favorite. I did have many of the questions I had about Sarah answered, but now I am left with a whole new set. Why is The Prophecy so determined to get a Hamilton into The White House? What exactly did Dr. Venable do to Jack and Cassidy’s minds? All of a sudden, both are interested in politics and Buck’s campaign – very Manchurian Candidate. The relationship between Jack and Cassidy is interesting. Will either remember the other after the mind wipe or will they start a brand new relationship not remembering that they already had one? There were many twists and turns in this story. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. Ms Daniels gives you a little teaser of the next book at the end of Into Dust just to build up your anticipation for the net book in the series. This is not a standalone book. You must have read the other book in the series for this one to make sense. I highly recommend this book.

4.5* In to the Dust is the latest then the "The Montana Hamiltons" and I love this series. This is Cassidy Hamilton and Jack Durand's story. She's the youngest of twins and the sixth daughter of Buckmaster and Sarah Hamilton. Cassidy meets Jack Durand when he saves her from being kidnapped. This leads to secrets that are to crazy to believed. What happens next will change both their lives for ever, if they can live long enough to get to the bottom of the secrets. Cassidy and Jack have to rely on and trust each other if they are going to survive. I can not wait to read the next book Honor Bound. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team

Cassidy has had little to do with her family since her mother has returned from the dead. She hasn't even been home for over a year. But now that her life has been put into danger she is on the run from the organization that her mother once prescribed to. Now on the run with Jack they face thugs, horrible parents, and hypnotism. Jack has been fighting with his father since his mother died, But when he see's something he shouldn't have and saved Cassidy he manged to go on an adventure of a lifetime. To bad he wont remember any of it. This book was a good addition to the series and it managed to show a new dynamic to the organization intent on taking down the country. This book was a little more difficult for me to get into but it was still a good read. And the ending is one you would never expect. I cant wait to see what else happens and how the series comes to a conclusion. Another great read by B.J Daniels. ~A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection

WOW! I really don't know what to say about this book! It left me speechless! I read this book so fast that my head is still spinning. It not only hooked me from the first page, it sucked me into the book like I was living right along with the characters! The story was so fast-paced and phenomenal that I could hardly put it down. All the characters that I have come to love in this series were involved. There were so many twists and turns that it was hard to keep up but I managed and each turn of the page just brought more excitement and intrigue! I CANNOT believe I have to wait until Nov. to find out the conclusion of this series! How will I ever make it? B.J. is such an awesome writer. She transforms her characters and storylines into a roller coaster ride that leave a reader breathless! When I turned to the last page, I actually said the word, "NO!" out loud! I didn't want it to end! This book centers on the youngest Hamilton daughter, Cassidy, and it opens with a botched kidnapping. Jack Durand saves her from that kidnapping and the two become bonded from there when they realize that their parents are both involved in this kidnapping in interesting ways and nothing makes sense to them! As with all of B.J.'s books, there are several storylines going on in the book and I really like that. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book! I didn't get much sleep while reading it but I highly recommend it as a fantastic read!
