In a nutshell: The schoolteacher of Rock Creek, TX searches out Reese to hire him to save her town from El Diablo, an old Comanche with a gang of thugs who like to shoot up the town. Despite the small amount of money offered--and his own belief it was a bad idea--Reese takes the job, promising to bring five friends with him.

As the first installment of this series, "The Rock Creek Six", this was a great start. While there were little nit-picky things I could dwell on--i.e., typos, minor inaccuracies, etc.--I will refrain. The story was just too enjoyable. The heroine was strong and self-sufficient without being belligerent and overbearing. The hero was brooding but gentlemanly--for the most part--and was quite convincing as a man with inner demons. His battle within himself was enthralling while her naivete and drive to control her environment was in keeping with her upbringing. The story itself flowed quite nicely with a nice amount of suspense and tension. The supporting characters were as lovable/interesting as the main with their odd little quirks and personal angst. I think the personality development was well-done and look forward to re-reading the rest in the series. :o)

This book is followed by Sullivan (The Rock Creek Six) by Linda Devlin.
