This book is Johanna Lindsey at her best: the characters, Sharisse and Lucas are engaging and fun, and the reader easily begins to care about what happens to them. The wild west setting is perfect for all romantics who like the idea of a rugged hero, with a city slicker's heart, falling in love with a city born young socialite - two worlds seemingly at odds, coming together. I immediately fell in love with both brothers, Slade and Lucas, and couldn't decide which brother Sharisse should be with...which is a good thing (read the book and you'll find out why). However, I realised something wasn't right about Lucas and Slade's story, and guessed it long before Sharisse did (another winner in story-telling, always keep the readers guessing and make them feel like they've guessed the truth before the character has). Perhaps the old adage 'love is blind' is fitting here, otherwise I'd be tempted to say Sharisse was a touch slow in realising what was literally staring her in the face.
I enjoyed the romance and pace of this book and if you're looking for a classic Johanna Lindsey novel that doesn't disappoint, this one is for you. It's better than a lot of her more recent publications, so if you haven't read this, don't bother with the more modern books: give this one a go. It's one of her best books and I should know, I've read all of them!
