Overview

When a rugged stranger darkens the door of her family ranch, Martha Jean Flynn can tell right away that Ridge Longtree is nothing like the other cowboys who show up in search of work. For in the eyes of this raven-haired, half-Indian loner, Martha sees the hint of danger, the depths of sorrow-and the tiniest spark of untold passion.

Indeed, tragedy forced Ridge to leave the Apache stronghold at a young age. But when Martha's father is murdered and Apaches kidnap her younger sister, he cannot bear to see her distraught. Reluctantly, he agrees to lead her to the stronghold to save her kin. But somewhere along the jagged mountain trail, the two discover a passion that threatens to set their hearts aflame and endanger their mission of rescue...

I liked the story and characters, but the plot was slow to the point of being boring at times. The chemistry between the lead characters was there but the prose did not strike a match to excite the reader. Definitely too juvenile with a dab of sex thrown in to make it more adult. Nice try but no cigars from me. The subplot between Sansa & the little sister was actually much more romantic.

Ridge Longtree is a highly regarded gunfighter, but is weary with no place to call home. Marty Flynn allows him to spend the night in the bunkhouse while she and her sister Dani worry that their father has not come home. When they find blood on her dad¿s horse, Marty hires Ridge because she believes their neighbor Victor Claunch bushwhacked her father. Ridge finds her dead dad.......................... Victor tells Ridge he will be unemployed once he marries Marty, who writes a letter to her estranged mother that her husband is dead and Dani needs her. Victor informs Marty she will marry him, but she avoids the topic by saying that her dad just died. That night Dani meets her beau Cory. Nettie arrives, but Marty fails to welcome her. They realize Dani is not home. Ridge figures out that Apaches have taken Dani and Cory........................ Apache Sanza speaks English with Dani who he decides he will make his wife. Ridge and Marty follow. The Indians recognize Ridge from when he lived with them. He and Marty go to the Apache camp. Ridge tells Marty that Cory is dead. Sanza proposes marriage and Dani accepts. Ridge proposes to Marty who accepts, but first they must prove Victor killed her father and their mother feels she can.................... The lead couple is a fine pairing that readers will enjoy because their growing love provides different types of redemption for them. The insight into the Apache relationship between in-laws is quite interesting. The villain is obviously sneaky which leads to readers wondering why townsfolk think highly of him. Though the estranged mother seems too innocent while the deceased father too guilty, fans will enjoy this exciting western romance................. Harriet Klausner
