Goodreads synopsis:

Luke Hanchart proposed a marriage of convenience to Susan, his cousin’s widow, to protect his family’s ranch. Little did he know that saying “I do,” would open the door to a tempestuous future. Now nothing stood in the way of a passion that had smoldered between them. As they sealed their union with a kiss, a spark ignited and began to burn.

I want to say that I didn’t like Susan’s character at all. Even when everything was revealed, she still came across as a completely selfish person who hurt many people. I am sure that is not how the author wanted her to come across that way, but she did.

Would I label this book a romance? Ehh. Susan knew she was selfish and tried to right her wrongs by doing the right thing, but still.

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

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