Deadly Intent is a book in the Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations series. Deadly Intent is written by Margaret Daley who is known for a great romantic suspense with Christian undertones. Sarah is a Texas Ranger and she is investigating a cattle rustling scheme. Ian's has a horse stolen and cattle killed which brings Sarah in to investigate. Ian is a retired FBI agent who is now a rancher. He is not exactly helpless in the situation. It was fun having Sarah, the female be the lead on an investigation with the male being the victim. The author did a fabulous job of highlighting Sarah's strengths while still keeping Ian a strong male to balance her. I recommend this short romantic suspense with a faith element.

Texas Ranger Sarah Osborn is sent to investigate the thief of a prized stallion. Ian’s stallion Thunder is missing and could be part of a cattle rustling ring or something much more personal.

The two main characters both had strong captivating personalities. The author Margaret Daley has written a fantastic book that is sure to keep you at the edge of your seat.

Deadly Intent is another signature action packed story by Margaret Daley. She just has a talent of keeping a reader engaged and holding on to their seat. The main characters, Sarah and Ian, were great and strong. My heart ached for Sarah at times. The book is a quick, adventurous, romantic and suspenseful read.  Highly recommended  5 stars.

Deadly Intent by Margaret Daley is yet another well-written romantic suspense novel. Book Two in the Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations, highlights another strong woman faced with dangerous circumstances. Sarah, now a Texas Ranger, finds herself working on a case with someone she was involved with in her past, meaning she no longer has romantic feelings for. However, after spending time with Ian, after being put on a case of a stolen horse that may be connected to a cattle rustling ring, old feelings begin to surface. Sarah is a professional, can she keep it that way? This novella is a quick read, only because I couldn’t put it down. There will be more books in this series, with the third promised in the fall. This is a definite must-read!

Full of strong characters, lots of suspense and action, and a wonderful romance, Deadly Intent packs a whole lot of story into an easy to read novella! I love it when authors are able to create a full and enjoyable tale in novella form. That is what Margaret Daley was able to do with this story. Sarah and Ian are the main characters. They have a really interesting back story and both ended up going into different areas of law enforcement when they went their separate ways. Sarah was left broken-hearted years earlier, but now Ian is back. This makes for excellent tension and sets the stage for a very fulfilling rekindling of their romance. I thoroughly enjoyed Deadly Intent from start to finish and highly recommend it. (5 stars) I received a complimentary copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
