Publishers WeeklyMolly McFarlane flees from her vicious brother-in-law with her late sister's children in tow in this second entry of the Blood Rose trilogy. Without a real plan, she heads for the frontier, hoping for a new life but the train carrying them is derailed and, desperate, Molly marries an injured man in the hopes of getting the widow's benefits. However, Hank Wilkins doesn't die, and though he remembers nothing, still he takes Molly and the children back to his ranch, where he starts to fall in love with her. But when a tracker sent by her brother-in-law menaces her and Hank learns the truth about their marriage, Molly is desperate, with no one to turn to except the man she has deceived but also come to love. While there's a great deal of genre conventions in this historical romance: rough and tumble men, independent but vulnerable women and a frontier code of honor, still, Molly and Hank are a charming couple, despite the needlessly dramatic villains and the preposterous 'conspiracy' around them. For fans of Western romance who don't mind some suspension of disbelief.
