Learning that Courtney is pregnant and alone is not what Riley expects. Finding her being targeted by his enemies is unfathomable. With the passion between Riley and Courtney intensifying, so does the danger. With Courtney's safety at risk, Riley will do whatever he must to protect her. The stakes couldn't be higher or the danger deadlier!
Riley's Retribution is my first ever Harlequin Intrigue. I am a huge fan of romantic suspense and am excited to find another source to satisfy my need! And Riley's Retribution does, indeed, satisfy. Full of suspense, romance, and passion, Ms. York kept me on the edge of my seat. The desire Riley and Courtney share is very heated. Add that to a thrilling plot with twists and turns, and I was biting my lip to see how the story ended. For fans of romantic suspense, I recommend Riley's Retribution for an exciting and pleasurable read!

NOTE: Stand alone read. 4th book of The Big Sky Bounty Hunters series (multiple authors).
_____ This book makes more sense if you read the previous books in the series.
EASY READ! Okay writing, action packed storyline, likable characters, strong band-of-brothers theme, vicious bad guys, and a lusty, pregnant-heroine romance. HOWEVER, the clichéd storyline is disappointing, there are several major plot holes, and the financial backer is obvious. But the biggest problem are the underlying plot premises; That the authorities do nothing about a group of escaped convicts living for months on the heroine's land AND the terrorist leader believes he can kill the heroine, take over her ranch, and live happily ever after.
THE STORY follows undercover operative extraordinaire, bounty hunter Riley Watson, widowed rancher, Courtney Rogers, and militia psycho-fanatic, Boone Fowler. To survive her financial troubles after her husband death, Courtney leases her ranch's old tourist center to Fowler and his followers. Riley arrives hoping to infiltrate Fowler's militia, discover his next terrorist target, find the identity of Fowler's financial backer, and capture everyone.
As the story opens, Riley take a job as Courtney's ranch manager. He is not sure of her allegiance, but quickly determines that she is good-hearted and very pregnant ally. Riley also discovers that someone is trying to kill Courtney and he is faced with some difficult choices. He must try to protect her and at the same time, pretend to be one of Fowler's thugs. At least until they can figure what is going on and the bounty hunters can intervene.
OVERALL, engaging read, but nothing special. BIG SKY BOUNTY HUNTERS include Going to Extremes (A. Stevens), Bullseye (J. Andersen), Warrior Spirit (C. Miles), Forbidden Captor (J. Miller), and Riley's Retribution (R. York).
You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, or E. Palfrey. For good mystery/suspense romance stories you might try J. D. Robb, D. Stabenow, S. Grafton, Julie Miller or Gayle Wilson.
