Goodreads synopsis:

When Shane died Susan was left with nothing but a mountain of debts and bitter memories of a marriage to a man she’d despised. Even in death, his will kept her from making things right between her and his family. Alone and broke, she had no choice but to sell the Hanchart land in order to survive. Luke Hanchart hadn’t shed a tear over his cousin’s untimely demise. And he wouldn’t stand by and watch a piece of his family heritage be sold to an outsider. He intended to find a way around his cousin’s will even if it meant marrying his untrustworthy widow. Luckily, Susan was responsible enough to agree with his sensible proposal to keep the ranch intact. What neither of them realized was that with the simple words “I do”, they were not only righting the wrongs of the past, but opening the door to a tempestuous future. Now nothing stood in the way of the passion that had smoldered between them for years. As they sealed their union with a kiss, sparks ignited and continued to burn.

My review:

I want to start off and say that I didn’t like Susan’s character….at all. Even when all was revealed (and you need to read the book), she still came across as a completely selfish person who hurt a lot of people, including herself. I am sure that is not how the author wanted her to come across as that way but she did.

Would I label this book a romance? Ehh…maybe. I mean, Susan knew that she was a selfish person and did try to right her wrongs by doing the right thing, marrying Luke, but still.

It was a great Western and there was a mystery element (the whole Shane storyline).

Would I read this book again? I don’t know. I might. It’s still up in the air right now.

Book I am reading now:

The Circle of Sorcerers (Mages of Bloodmyr, #1)
