About the book

Former outlaw Clay Colby is abuzz with his mail order bride’s expected arrival. He’s fought long and hard to drag Devil’s Crossing out of lawlessness…so when his homestead is set ablaze by a bitter rival, he’s heartbroken. There’s no woman in the world who’d stand by him now.

But Talley Shannon is no ordinary woman.

After escaping the psychiatric hospital in which she was wrongfully detained, Tally only wants someone to protect her and the little girl under her care. She doesn’t mind that Clay’s home is dang near burned to the ground–not when he makes her feel so safe. So cherished. But it’s only a matter of time before the ghosts of her past come calling…and her loving cowboy must defend his new bride–and the family they built together–to his very last breath.

My Thoughts

Cowboy romances normally aren’t at the top of my list of books to read but something about this blurb caught my eye so I decided to give it a try. I am glad I took a chance on it because I ended up really enjoying it and read it in 2 reading sessions. 

I absolutely loved Clay’s character. He won my heart over from the moment he picked flowers to try and make his home more welcoming for Tally. Then we see his patience and love for a little girl, Violet, and OMG, just take my heart right now! 

I liked Tally’s character well enough and is broke my heart reading what she went through at the insane asylum (not to mention it always amazes me how women could be incarcerated for the craziest of reasons.). There is also a great cast of supporting characters that help make this a great story all around and watching the romance develop will leave you with a happy sign. This is my first read from this author but definitely won’t be my last.
