I was so disappointed at the no-one-says-how-they-feel-big-misunderstanding.
The first half was fun watching Casey, age 17, as a bounty hunter. Men think she’s a boy because she’s tall and wears men’s clothes. They call her Kid. She’s a fast draw. We don’t watch her hunt and catch outlaws, but we are told that she caught several. Most of the danger is when bad guys come to rob or kill her and she has to de ...more
update 10/7/13... this book just gets better and better. I listened as an audiobook this time and it was awesome. 5 stars for the book and 5 stars for the narration.
A very fun read.

A great adventure where a tenderfoot from the east hires KC to find his father's killer. Damian's well laid plans get screwed & his youthful guide constantly surprises him.
Heart warming, action packed & strong personalities clashing have you continually thinking what could possibly happen next? Enjoy.
How very disappointing. I expected so much more from Lindsey, but most of the story was tell with very little show. I was expecting a story more like A Heart So Wild , 1, in which Lindsey grabbed hold of me and pulled me in. This one? Well, I wanted to read more about Chandos and Courtney, fin ...more
1) It was boring. For a book that was full of gun fights, train robberies and murder I expected it to be exciting but it was just....not.
2) There was a lot of I like him but he doesn't like me. A lot of we are too different or I'm not good enough. I get that in YA fiction but in Adult Fiction? Casey seemed so sure of herself in the beginning but that changed pretty quick.
3) The main reason why I wanted to read this book was because o ...more
The forced marriage (literally at gunpoint) and the equally abrupt way they were "unmarried" was very hilarious.
Casey Straton is the daughter of Chandos and Courtney of the first Straton book, the name of which I cannot recall for the life of me. Casey is just like her dad - strong willed and fearless. Her grandfather has died and left her a share of his ranch. She wants to take over the running of the ranch but her dad disagrees because (a) ...more
I honestly liked the beginning. Confusing though, but totally feels more like real life. Until it turns all corny just like every other love novel.
So Casey Starton is this tall girl who has been trained all her life in this cattle place owned by her father. She has one older and one younger brother. And apparently her father considers the age of 18 to be an adult. Casey was like 17. And obviously with that sexist thought of ...more
Casey was the daughter of Courtney and Chandos the main couple of the first book, she takes after her father in everything, in both looks and temperament, but that never stopped her being close to her mom which I thought was a nice touch because the differences between them didn't cause a drift or favoritism of a sort and I found h ...more
I also didn't feel very connected to Damian. He had redeeming qualities, but he didn't seem to have too muc ...more
I really wish it was done differently because the Chandos+Courtney storyline was done brilliantly. All I really wanted to read about was a 'happily ever after' (not ashamed to admit it) and I kinda sorta got it with this book.
Confession: I totally 'read' this book backwards. Searching for the Straton family interactions throughout the boo ...more
After Casey had a fight with her father she left her home to prove to her father she could run the ranch that had been left to her by her grandfather. The career she chose was something a woman would not normally do and that's why she was though of as a kid. Enter Damien Rutledge III, fresh on his way west from New York city in search of his father's killer. Before she knew it Damien had hired her to find Henry Curruthers and after lots of fun? she did.
It was an easy to l ...more
Any way, I can't seem to remember much of this book. Though the bit's I do remember I loved-but considering I gave it 3 stars back in the day, I obviously didn't live it enough. But honestly...When has Johanna Lindsey ever played me false. I EVEN ENJOY HER NEW STUFF, and considering a bunch of JL fans don't really like them, that says volumes.
This is an older title and may not be available on e ...more
