Overview

The bawling of the longhorns, the lonesome night watch beneath a vast, starry sky – they got into a man’s blood until he knew there was nothing better than the life of a cowboy … except the love of a good woman.

Hawk and Zeke have been inseparable ever since boyhood—two loners, outsiders, as free as the wild horses they chase across the Arizona desert. So when they join up with two misplaced dance-hall girls on the trail, they react about the same way as unbroken mustangs to the saddle. Kicking and bucking at every step of the way, the bachelors are gentled by soft touches and warm caresses until each finds himself riding the range with a brand-new partner.

    The Mavericks

    Two couples that don't want love find each other on the lonely plains of the Old West. Zeke and Hawk both felt too outcast because of their heritages to ever find a woman who could look past that to love them and Josie and Suzette were dancehall girls. Their past was not one that made for wives. Yet, once the two groups meet, neither can get the other out of their minds. They try, but when trouble forces them to reunite, they find love leading them home. ..................... There is actually very little coherent or cohesive plot here to engage one's attention. The narrative seesaws from one to the other jaggedly, focusing mostly on angst, not romance. The friendships portrayed are noteworthy and heartwarming, but that is not enough to commend this tale as readable.

    Jake and Savanah wind up adopting 11 children and spawning the cowboy series. The Mavericks are two of there sons. It just seems to make more sense if you read the series from the beginning.

    terrific western romance

    At the end of the Civil War the Maxwells adopted eleven orphans whom they showered with love and raised to respect others. Though all in this loving brood cherish one another, the two non-white children became best friends. For years, former slave Zeke and half Indian Hawk rode together with neither of them thinking of settling down, but now in their late thirties, they decide to end their wanderlust and raise quality horses to sell to ranchers. --- As the Maxwell brothers escort mares in foal to their ranch, Josie, a black female, fires at Hawk. Zeke persuades Josie and her dance girl companions Suzette, Anna, and the ailing Laurie to stop shooting. Their wagon lost its linchpin stranding the helpless females until the siblings showed up. When Ben Norman arrives to take Anna with him as his wife, the ladies lose their driver and with the help of the guys take Laurie to her parents¿ spread. As Suzette and Hawk fall in love over horses, Zeke and Josie fall in love between jabs. However, while in loving denial, they deal with horse thieves, kidnappers, and an idiot sheriff. --- Leigh Greenwood, known for his terrific western romances, returns to the Cowboys¿ saddle with a fantastic double love story. The character driven tale lassoes in readers from the moment Josie fires a shot at Hawk and never slows down until the final confrontation between her and Zeke. The story line focuses on the dual romances, but is enhanced by the rustlers and a sheriff who applies racial profiling (Suzette is French Canadian) to decide that the four heroes are liars and thieves. Fans will cherish the return to one of the best sub-genre series. - Harriet Klausner
