Dakota Marshal by Jenna Ryan

He brought danger to her doorstep…

Shot and bleeding, cowboy cop turned U.S. Marshal Gabriel McBride had nowhere to go, no one else he trusted except the very woman who wanted nothing to do with him. Tracking a fugitive, he'd been ambushed by a hit man. A hit man he'd unwittingly brought straight to Alessandra Norris. It had been the risks he'd taken, the secrets he'd kept, that had broken them apart. And now Alessandra was right in the thick of them, fleeing into the Black Hills with a rifle scope aimed at her back and a rogue marshal at her side. But the gravest danger came from McBride himself—a man whom she'd never stopped loving….

I've never been much of a romance fan honestly. Not because I'm a lonely, disgruntled curmudgeon or because I was dropped as a child or anything like that, it just never seemed like a genre I'd enjoy reading. I'm one of those girls who loves a good horror book, who enjoys a bit of action with her character development, and groans at the thought of anybody ripping anybody else's bodice off. Seems like Harlequin and I should probably have a relationship akin to the one that everyone has with weird Uncle Harold: maybe an exchange of greeting cards around the holidays or an occasional telephone call; anything beyond that seems excessive. That was before a friend loaned me Dakota Marshal and told me, "If you don't like romance-as-usual, you'll like Jenna Ryan." "Right," I thought, "and laserdiscs might make an amazing comeback too." But I trust this friend deeply, and since they have never steered me wrong about a book yet and it was only a couple hundred pages which I could burn through in less than a day, I figured I should at least give it a shot. At the first sign of dreamy-eyed flawless hunks or stupid-damsel-in-distress syndrome, I could always put it down and go back to Richard Laymon. Jenna Ryan is now my newest guilty-pleasure author. She's intelligent, she's funny, she writes cracking great dialogue, and even her secondary characters have personality oozing between their toes. She's clearly having so much fun dumping her leads in the fire and sitting back to watch the sparks (or the kisses) fly that you can't help but get caught up in the scenario she's spinning. It's an Intrigue, so you can expect a bit of suspense and mystery to go with your smooching. And while there's some sex (duh...), it's handled quite tastefully with no mention at all of pulsing, throbbing, heaving, engorged anythings to pull you out of the story while you roll your eyes. All told, I'd give Dakota Marshall a solid 4 out of 5 stars. It's not the best thing ever written, but it's a fun, quick, light read with characters you end up caring about (especially the very well-written female lead), and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody, male or female, who was looking to try the romance genre for the first time. You might even surprise yourself like I did.
