Owen Wheeler is new in town. He’s on the heels of a former Night Rider turned traitor. His early interactions are with Hetta Gwynne, a woman who helps run a rooming house. I didn’t like this book. My problem is the interactions between Hetta and Owen. I’m not sure what the author was going for (witty arguments maybe?), but my impression was a shrew vs a rogue. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Until one of their number betrayed them all. In the aftermath of tragedy, they swore they would lire to hunt down the traitor. But to each, life would bring first a woman and then a revelation: Far sweeter than revenge is love. OWEN He was the good-looking one, the one who'd always counted on his charm to get by. But the war had changed them all, leaving Owen painfully aware that looks could kill as surely as bullets. On the trail of the traitor, he no longer prided himself on his ability to break hearts, especially when the heart belonged to a girl as plain-featured and plain-spoken as Hetta Gwynne. Hetta made it clear she had no interest in winning a man, only in winning back her ranch. But after tasting her surprisingly heated kisses, Owen realized it was his own heart that was in danger of breaking unless he could change her mind. My Thoughts 2 strong-willed people whose upbringing left them both with mental scars. Scars that still color their judgements of other men and women making it hard to give their trust to someone who is in any way like the parent who carelessly caused them pain. Adding the combination of this being a historical western setting, with a small fictional Texas town and inhabitants at it's core, was irresistible. Adding a romantic connection between Hetta and Owen just sweetened the story for readers like myself who are a sucker for wishing the so-called underdog to come out on top. In Hetta's case the poor Plain Jane proved to be more than her lack of looks or wealth to the most unlikeliest of contenders for her hand, Owen Wheeler. However not only did Hetta’s character manage to overcome her plain facial appearance but Owen proved to be much more than a pretty face himself. As someone who enjoys watching characters develop as their outer persona peels away a little at a time. Slowly unveiling the inner self they hide as a means of preserving a battered heart. A heart that finally finds that one special person who will care for it like it were their own, leaving them free to love unreservedly for the first time. I thought that the different elements that made up the meat of this book were neatly woven together, the rustling, the hunt for the mastermind behind it and the romance playing out for Hetta and Owen all worked to provide readers a good second look at a member of the Night Riders. Even for readers like myself who did not start with first book in the series thought this second offering worked well as a stand alone anyway. [EArc from Netgalley]
