Enjoyed the story 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 book opens with the murder of Johanna and Jacy s parents then the outlaws cruelly rape Jacy and steal her away Three days later, the neighbors find Jacy in shock and speechless.Because of Jacy s obvious condition she s pregnant and unable to speak , Johanna is having a hard time getting and keeping a job any job Finally, a lawyer says he has a job for her in New Mexico Johanna is to be the housekeeper of a powerful landowner, Mack Macklin.These are two innocents thrown to the wolves Mack and his two illegitimate sons, Burr and Luis, hate and rage at each other However, there is a strong bond between the two sons Luis is the lover and Burr is the fighter in the family.Luis is immediately captivated by Jacy and she with him He does not look down on her for a pregnancy she could not prevent he promises that they will be a family and the baby will be theirs.Love doesn t come so quickly and easily with Johanna and Burr he has many of his father s worst habits Burr can be just as cutting and insulting as his father and he takes his rage out on Johanna Now, Johanna is looking for a way out she is desperately unhappy with Mack and Burr Johanna is a woman with a strong backbone but even she finds the two men impossible to live amongst.All of the characters are fully fleshed out The story is action packed and moves at a rapid pace This is one of Dorothy Garlock s earlier works and it packs a wallop. Johanna and her sister suffered a brutal incident Left without their father and mother, she sets out to take care of them An opportunity is brought up and she decided to take it Working as a house keeper for the Macklin ranch, proves as a big mistake Can she and her sister survive Really liked. While this book kept me engaged, 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 seemed like 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. review is from Glorious Dawn Talk about characterization Dorothy Garlock does a fabulous job with the characters in this book.If the characters are bad, they don t suddenly see the light and become wonderful Old Mack was a mean old cuss, and he died a mean old cuss and nobody missed him.Naturally, everyone knew the two main characters would eventually fall in love, but oh wow, the getting there was so darn good What a love story I love Dorothy Garlock s historicals, but this one is at the top of the stack.Well done, Ms Garlock loved it as i do all dorothy garlock books.
