Johanna takes the position of housekeeper to old Mack Macklin and his household of men hoping to see Jacy begin to heal and try and put their troubled past behind them But Macklin s isolated household is filled with hate, racism and bad memories Mack has two illegitimate sons Burr and Luis It is Burr who is volatile, and angry Raised to take fight for what he wants.he wants Johanna and will let nothing stand in his way.There are some wonderful characterisations in this somewhat angst driven and gritty romance The male characters are certainly not PC and some of the female characters although strong in their own right are treated poorly I think that the author was trying to portray just how lawless the west was and that it took very strong individuals both male and female to survive in such an environment There is an authentic feeling for time and place and the ranch life and western era wonderfully descriptive.Not a gentle romance by any means because there are some heavy themes involved, but it is worth a look at This is one of the heaviest historical romances I ve ever read there is so much hate and rage expressed that I became overwhelmed with the negative vibes After thinking on this, I ve bounced from a score of 4 to 5 stars several times This is an incredibly well written book about things I don t usually see in romances prejudice, racism and unbridled hate.The

characters and plot weren t so great in hindsight The premise and characters were fairly reasonable Sure, I enjoyed most of it, but there were a lot of things that just didn t quite make sense The romance between Johanna and Burr seemedlike a matter of convenience and lust rather than any true romantic feelings Marriages have been built on less, but I would have preferred it if the plot of this book had been built on . loved it as i do all dorothy garlock books. Very, very good
