With three separate romances going on in this story, I loved all the different aspects of each one. DEA agent, Maggie Holt, is suffering from PTSD and attempting to recover after being held captive by a ruthless Mexican drug cartel. The bouts of PTSD bring her to her knees. Frank Stein, former Chief Petty Officer Navy SEAL team leader, simply wants to enjoy retirement and ranch life. The ranch seems the perfect place for Maggie to recover. He hadn’t counted on falling for the beautiful woman he is trying to help. And, he also hadn’t counted on a drug cartel moving their operation into the area and using stolen cattle for a cover. Adam (Maggie’s former lover) and Amanda (the tough DEA woman in charge) are another romance in the making, as are Frank’s mother and the ranch foreman. This story is full of action. Each chapter takes the reader into a different POV and sometimes a different setting. But, as this author so often does, she ties all of the different threads together to bring the story to a satisfactory conclusion. Tough female protagonists and even tougher male protagonists with soft hearts make for a delightful romantic read with tons of suspense where the bad guys are clever and deadly. The author left this story open for a sequel and I look forward to reading it. There are many characters in this book, and I struggled at times, to keep them straight as to who was who. I definitely think it would be helpful to come into this story with some more background by reading Maggie’s Revenge first. I highly recommend this book, but also suggest that you read the previous book first just to make the characters, their roles, and relationships easier to follow.
