Leif is a high powered Dallas defense attorney who is feeling a bit burned out. By the end of his latest case he's gotten the feeling his client isn't so innocent after all. When his fifteen year old daughter shows up on his doorstep wanting to get to know her grandfather, Leif's estranged father, he's not very happy about it. His relationship with her hasn't been great lately, so he'll suck it up for this chance to reconnect with her.

Leif harbors a great deal of resentment toward his father bec

This was a heartwarming journey of how broken family ties can be mended if there is give and take on both sides. There was a lot going on in this one book, but the story flowed nicely.

Leif has had built up resentment towards his father R.J for many years. R.J divorced his wife, and walked out on his two sons when they were little. R.J is dead to Leif, and that's how Leif wants to keep it. R.J. wants to make things better. He knows he was a worthless father. He has a brain tumor, and does not ha

I enjoyed Unrepentant Cowboy. A Big "D" Dads: The Dalton's series. Leif Dalton is an attorney in Texas about an hours drive from his dad's ranch.

A few years later the family who took Lief in searched for his brother and took him in also. Leif is divorced with a teenage daughter, Effie, who lives with her mother in California. Effie wants to m ...more

Joanna Wayne is usually one of the better writers in the Intrigue line, but this is the worst Intrigue book I've ever read!

Nothing happens! Nothing at all! What the heck is this?

Leif tries to reconnect with his bratty daughter while bitching and moaning about being abandoned by his own father when he was three. Yawn. He was such a crybaby, it was a real turn-off.

Every now and then there's a mention of a serial killer to try and fool us into thinking this is actually a suspense story. It's not! T

In Wayne’s romantic intrigue novel, Dallas defense attorney Leif Dalton was born to defend children. When his teenage daughter wants to visit his father at the Dry Gulch Ranch, Leif reluctantly returns to the ranch. But when veterinarian Joni Griffin lands in a stalker’s path, staying close is his only option. With a serial killer in hot pursuit, Joni and Leif team together as the danger and passion flare.

Fast past in getting to know the Characters and heartwarming to see the plot of the story come to life with a powerful play on every word. I can't wait to read the next book.

I tried. I tried to enjoy it. I really did. But while the plot had promise and I wanted to read a western romance, the writing was clunky and difficult to get into.
