It was such a refreshing change of pace to read a romance book with a hero who was actually a nice guy and not wallowing in despair or self hate To be sure Michael Cantrell was scarred from his recent experience as a cavalry captain in the Confederate army but author Lorrie Farrelly turns him into an optimistic survivor He was in the West wandering to find his new place in the world after losing his home and his family Fortunately he wanders right into the path of Annie and Robbie Devlin just when they need him most Beautiful Annie and her little brother are ambushed by the hired men of a neighboring rancher who covets the Devlin spread During the fracas Michael is seriously wounded and taken home by the Devlins so they can care for him It doesn t take Michael long to realize that Annie and Robbie need some help He also doesn t have any place he needs to be and Annie Devlin sparks the first interest in life that Michael has had in a long time Well hell Michael thought in wry chagrin his body at taut attention Looks like something works right after allLorrie Farrelly crafts a romance between Michael and Annie that is full of homespun wit and humor She makes the most of little jokes that play off Michael s southern twang his adjustment to living among Union sympathizers and victors versus losers in the game of war Annie Robbie and others teasingly don t let him forget for a second he was on the losing sideDon t know why I should be surprised by anything that woman does God knows I haven t won a war yetThey are a young couple and both are experiencing their first deep love It is sensual and deceptively sweet Farrelly is very talented in the way she portrays the pair in the earliest throes of physical lust they just can t get enough of one another I liked that even the tender moments kept me guessing and were suffused with humorDon t think for a second though that Michael is just a swain courting a girl He comes across as an archetypal cowboy sitting on a magnificent black stallion He is on a uest for justice but does it in a reserved uiet and lethally intense manner And every once in a while Farrelly cuts his viciousness loose Annie and Robbie are great characters too She is one of those people who goes through life with a smile and I liked her Although the book starts out with her being savagely attacked Annie s internal struggles are uieter than those of Michael Michael is the one who grows and changes and Annie and Robbie are the ones pulling him into the light Robbie is ten years old and is the appropriate mixture of bratty kid and responsible older child Of course before long he idolizes Michael but what isn t there to idolize Michael is surprised at his own fatherly reactions to RobbieIt s justthere for a minuteI opened my mouth and my daddy just leapt on outI loved these characters their romance the suspenseful action that took a surprising twist and the sprinkles of good natured humor I m glad I get to spend some time with these people in the seuel which I downloaded about ten seconds after I finished book one
