Let’s start by my telling you what an animal Burley was. What he did to Desiree was so horrible. The least that I wanted to happen to him was that he would die. No more prison for him! Dead, that’s it.

And, of course, then Desiree just had to have a TSTL moment. I was tempted to quit reading but I was on chapter 8 and there were only 9 chapters in this story. What she did was so stupid I didn’t even care if Burley killed her.

The biggest part of this book was

Joan Johnston has a way with Western-themed romances. This book has two good stories in one volume. Of course, love triumphs, but the road to happiness is loaded with human complications. Temptation, forgiveness, and redemption are featured in both tales. If you love sexy cowboys with big hearts and charm that won't quit, you won't be disappointed.
This is a fun read that is great for a weekend get away. I would recomend it to someone who likes clean and sweet love stories.

I liked both stories. They were short and simple reads. It keeps in line with most of the damsels in distress stories.
