This book would have 4 stars if not for the heroine. She was so, if I may borrow from Mia, yes-no-yes-no, in her relationship with Jake. I understand a book should have some conflict but the constant back and forth on her feelings for Jake drove me crazy. The fact that Catilin for some reason seemed to think Jake would be a danger to Ryan really upset me. She just wasn't my favorite heroine.

I liked Jake just for the sheer fact he never gave up on Caitlin (although, IMO, he should have).

Truly, I

This heroine, I have no words. maybe it is my state of mind as well. I really cannot tolerate an angry heroine. such heroines make me feel so.....angry? I don't respond well to female rage. it makes me want to run away.

I like Nicole Jordan, don't get me wrong, but this book was frustrating. Our heroine Caitlin is anything but a heroine - she is whiny and self-centered and my hats off to Jake to trying so hard - I would have left her in her self-righteous misery a long time ago.

I know everyone is down on the heroine of this book, but I'm not feeling it. It had to be hard to be as young as she was, with no support from family and pregnant with her lover's child. In that day and age she was lucky to be able to go to her aunt and fake a marriage to protect herself. Can you imagine finding out your lover and child's father is a killer and a target for every bounty hunter within several states? I understand that she loved Jake, but it is only in fairy tales (and romance nov ...more

Very well written and steamy romance. Interesting and involved story of a feud between cattle ranchers and sheep ranchers with the h/h caught in the middle. Lots of cowboys and gun-slinging. Caitlin kept changing her mind about the hero which I gather some readers didn't like, but if she had made a firm decision at the beginning, I guess there wouldn't have been much of a story...

I didn't enjoy this as much as I did from all the other works she wrote. I honestly felt Caitlin was a bit selfish and so indecisive I nearly wanted to pull out my hair. I liked Jake's character though.atleast he was consistent and the hell he has been through built on his character.
April Brookshire
Awesome hero, stubborn heroine. I think the hero made a mistake in not contacting the heroine during the four years he was an outlaw and I think the heroine was too hard on him even after he cleared his name. The book could have also used more villainy. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable enough read.

This is the prequel to Jordans ,The Heartbreaker which I gave 5*,but this book is about nothing but range wars and killing-hardly room for romance !
