When an old enemy, captures his wife and two children, A.J. must surrender in the hopes of exchanging his life for theirs. But when a horrible accident takes away the memory and sight of his beloved wife (Allison), A.J. must do everything in his power to protect his children and the woman he loves. Allison wakes up with no memory of the past ten years and is blind. A strange man claims to be her husband and the father of her two children. She has no choice but to believe him. What’s happened to her? Why can’t she see and how is she ever going to reconcile her new life? Her heart tells her to trust A.J. but can she? A heart-wrenching story about second chances, living each day to the fullest and the power of love. Controlled Burn captured me from the very first page. The action and the drama of life in a wild west township add depth to the story. A.J. and Allison are honestly drawn characters with demons and insecurities to overcome. Hope and love against a backdrop of hate are portrayed brilliantly. Lynda Cox uses such descriptive language, it was easy to be transported back in time. I’m not a western romance reader but I thoroughly enjoyed Controlled Burn. I can’t wait to read more from Lynda Cox. Favorite Character/Quote: A.J. is my favorite character in this story. Why? Due to circumstances beyond his control, he must start again with Allison. He has to take on the role of both husband and wife with their two children as well as Allison while she heals. She’s blind but that doesn’t matter to him. His struggles are real and my heart went out to him so many times. My Rating: 5 stars

A freak accident takes away every memory of Allison Adams’s life for the past decade. It also leaves her sightless. She isn’t sure of anything, not even who she has been for the past ten years, but when the man claiming to be her husband holds her, it feels familiar and right. How can she be certain this is where she belongs? Sharing his life with the woman he adores and their two children has given A.J. Adams the strength to keep his demons buried. When a murderous specter from the past rises, igniting new challenges, everything A.J. cherishes hangs in the balance. To win Allison’s love again, he’ll battle those demons. Fortunately, surrender has never been in his vocabulary. Is there any chance to regain sight of their past and see a way to a shared future? Their love can truly survive anything thrown at them. It starts out with a bang and they just keep coming and every step of the way they stay strong. I was holding my breath with every second of them being in that mine and knew that with that coming to an end more was coming. The struggle with her having no memory or sight was heartbreaking, but there was always a hint of their love there. They are two stubborn people and every argument brought back more of the spark between them. I never expected any of the things that threatened them and never knew what was going to happen next. I loved the advice she was given after her memory came back, but my heart sank at what caused her sight to come back. The ending though was amazing and I didn’t want it to end. Allison is still the strong and stubborn woman she was ten years ago. She wasn’t going to let anything keep her down. I loved that she still kept going and telling him he wasn’t a gentleman. A.J.’s charm has not faded with age and he still melts my heart. I loved that he wasn’t going to give up on her and even tried to start over in his own sweet way. He still has a temper that and being a judge just makes it more fun when he gets mad. The scene with all the ladies and their guns would scare anyone. Little Pammy is going to be a force to be reckoned with more than she is now when she grows up. Doctor Archer's advice had me laughing. This is definitely going on my favorites list.

The old west comes alive as you are taken on a journey full of suspense, revenge and a family trying to hold together through it all. This author's descriptive writing is so amazing because I felt like I was watching a real western unfold and had a great picture of the scene. A J Adams had a past that caused him to constantly try to hold at bay. But when a vile man comes and takes his family to punish him for past hatreds, everything comes back. Then when his wife Allison loses her sight and memories due to an unforeseen accident, everything for AJ hangs on by a thread. She and the kids were his strength and he had to win her back, even if she did not know who he was without being told. A story of survival, a deep love and forgiveness for the past. I was so pulled into this story and invested in the outcome as I turned the pages. I truly loved these characters and they deserved happiness. But could they find it again? I cannot wait to read more from this author and I recommend this story highly! Lori Dykes
