Don’t bother reading this book because chances are you’ve already read a superior version in your romance reading career. Formulaic and riddled with at least eleven clichés and tropes, the only thing that surprised me was the forced seduction/rape by the hero upon the heroine in a book published in 2007.

As a romance, this was a failure. Jake plays the "I'm a half-breed and can't marry you even though I devirginized you and you’re now a town pariah” card. Rachel whines a bit about how l...more

STORY BRIEF:
Jake is half Apache and half white. He is a Texas Ranger on the trail of Harrison, a vicious killer. Harrison’s gang surrounds Jake, beats him up and leaves him to die in a snowstorm. Somehow Jake survives an...more

Enjoyable enough romance. I liked that the reader was introduced to the hero before the heroine, though it took some time for the characters to develop. Characters were well-rounded, it was just hard to care about them when you've read this story before. I didn't understand why the author had to make the villian a child molester, as well as a murderer, it felt like she was piling on "evil" traits.
