Good western with lots of action, mistrustful sherrif & slick & creepy villains.

Lonely school teacher sets off to make a new life for herself. Arrives as a hero then when they hear her name all goes down hill fast. The new town is not going to soon forget her father & his gang robbed, killed there and she's a magnet for bad element because rumour has it she's hiding a silver mine.

Daisies in the Wind by Jill Gregory

I enjoyed this book.

The description of the book I am listing below is from the back jacket of the book. I'm adding it because I believe the one on the Goodreads page does not depict this story.

ICE- was her shield against a cruel, callous world.

FIRE was his weapon - a blazing six-gun and an unquenchable passion.

FATE brought them together as the rugged lawman taught the outlaw's rebellious daughter the meaning of love...

She was an ebony-haired, violet-eyed helli

Daisies in the Wind was an AVERAGE read at best.

It has a strong premise. Daughter of an outlaw attracted to a sheriff. I was excited to see how these "sworn enemies" would find their Happily Ever After. Unfortunately this book was (dare I say) boring. I found myself daydreaming about other things while I was reading....I didn't think that was possible.

Wolf was a solid leading man. A tortured hero with his deceased wife's betrayals and his distrust of women. The secondary characters...Wolf's mo

I always love a good historical western romance. This book did not disappoint. I loved our MCs. They were both tough, stubborn, feisty and honorable.

I thought the ending was a little too sweet. Wolf changed so much I guess I like my tough Sheriff to stay a little tough even after he gets his HEA.

Rebecca Rawlings is an outlaw's daughter and attempts to leave that lifestyle to become a schoolteacher in Montana. Wolf Bodine is the sheriff in the small community where Rebecca is teaching. I liked it. As with many romances it is predictable in places but ultimately gives you the needed HEA. The journey to get there was fun.

I liked the characters and the plot, however it was a bit too obvious and predictable sometimes, and i felt that the author over explained the attraction between the 2 characters. Sometimes less is more.
Altogether a pleasant, easy read, when you are looking for something easy and like westerns.

At times, to unbelievable even for a romance. On the whole, a good story, but far too many random events conspire to make this tiny town appear to be a major stopping point in the west.
