U.S. Marshal Slade Taggart is a hero I love. Strong, protective, and kind. Caroline Duncan has some issues with a past abusive marriage and the loss of her son, who was kidnapped by her ex-husband. There are three story lines weaving through the novel, and I liked how the secondary story lines didn't take over the main one. The secondary story lines were written in snippets throughout the book - enough to add some tension and get some feeling for what was going on, but not enough to interfere wi ...more

One of my very favorite books. I love the characters, the story, the setting, and the way the author conveys all of it. She is one of the few authors who can convey the lifestyle of a ranching family and not have me saying, "Yeah, right--you've never really been on a ranch." She understands it, and her love for it comes through her writing, and it touched my soul.

Can't wait for the sequel!!!

While I liked the story and the action propelled me onward, I was quite distracted by the numerous typos and the oft-used phrase "walked passed" (which should, of course, be "walked past"). That said, the story kept me intrigued and moving onward, which shows real promise when an author's tale keeps me moving forward regardless of the distraction.

This book had a very cheesy beginning, but after the characters were developed, I really liked it. It is about a mormon single mom whose son has been kidnapped by her drug-dealing ex-husband. Very clean and fun to read.

I loved this book! Writing was very good, easy read. I really enjoyed the suprise at the end of the book! Was not expecting that at all!

The author of five books, Candace E. Salima was born right smack dab in the middle of twelve children. Descended of a long line of artists, musicians and authors, Candace can barely remember a time when reading wasn't an integral part of her life. Her love of books, reading and writing, was born of hearing her mother read nightly from the James Herriot series about a veterinarian's mishaps in the ...more
