Hannah was lovely enough to make any man forget the past--any man except Buck Hogan. For thought she had more than fulfilled the promise of beauty in the 14-year-old girl he'd once known, Buck would always remember that back then he had been her father's whipping boy. Helpless no longer, he would have his revenge by taking the old man's ranch. The only thing he hadn't coun ...more

Not bad saying the writer is a man and he writes Western romance. I was quite impressed on how he developed the story line and the characters in this book. I guess I need to read the rest of the books I got by him

A fast read in a true western setting. This author's romance series are so consistently, highly rated that I was eager to sample any of them. If this book is wholly representative of the other books, then I would generally categorize the writing style as "Harlequin-esque western historical", the extended versions.

A good story but somehow lacking emotion—which is odd considering there were some quite emotional scenes. It's hard to explain. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I tore through the book, trying to finish it more quickly than it deserved.

This was overall a very entertaining Western with likable multi-dimensional good guys and I really enjoyed it until it neared the end.

Not a good idea to end a book leaving a bad taste in the reader's mouth by suddenly tur ...more

I remember this story and when I read the part about him being whipped I flinched because I couldn't imagine anyone having to indure that kind of pain
