Book Blurb: Rachel Lyndon yearns to escape her scandalous past, but her dreams for a better life seem ruined after she buries her fiancĂ© on the Texas plains. 

Heath Renier has been evading the law by the skin of his teeth for years. Now he's found a new identiy as Holden Renshaw, foreman of Dog Creek Ranch. But the arrival of his boss's mail-order bride, now a widow, upsets his fragile peace and threatens to expose his deadly secrets. 

Rachel knows that the mysterious and savagely handsome Holden is the last man she should trust - especially once she's seen glimpses of his true nature. When he's suspected of killing his employer, she has a terrible choice to make. But the heat of his gaze ignites something seductive and irresistible within her. No matter how dangerous the road ahead, she's determined to give him the one thing he's never truly believed he deserves: her undying love.

Book Review: I always dislike giving negative reviews but I just didn't like this book. I couldn't get a connection with the characters and I couldn't get into the story at all. The villain is pretty villainous though, pretty bad guy, you'll see when you read the book yourself, I always like reading a book when the bad guy is just a really bad guy. This book is different than most werewolf stories I have read, both in the werewolf lore and the setting; I haven't met very many western werewolves. I have enjoyed other books by Susan Krinard so don't let this book or my review deter you from checking out her other work.
