Beth would have never guessed that her
teenage sweetheart would be the first man to ever rip her
heart out. Leaving without so much as a good-bye Cal
destroyed her innocent view of love and shattered the family
unit he left behind.
Four years later, Beth has moved on and
is now engaged to the family’s foreman. Despite her sister’s
concerns and that of her best friend, she’s finally going to
move forward with her dreams of a family. She never
envisions that Cal would return hoping to rekindle the love
he’d squandered. Neither did her fiancé, a man who’s
unwilling to chance Beth falling in love again with her ex.
There is a lot of pain and distrust separating Beth and Cal,
but they will have to put it all behind them because evil is
at work and no one in their family is safe from harm.
In a past where good and evil had more definite lines and
where men lived off the land, there were families like the
Sinclairs. Families who would die for each other and even in
the face of trouble lend a helping hand to their fellow
neighbor. I think this is part of the fascination I seem to
have with historical westerns. Wanton Surrender
just added itself to my book of lovable historicals. From
the spunky heroine to the despicable villain, this book had
everything I look for in a great western. The heroine Beth
made me want to slap her at times because of her
stubbornness, but what fun would this story be if she was
some mild weak kitten who only knew how to follow the rules.
Ruth D. Kerce’s supporting characters also played an
important role in turning Wanton Surrender
into one book I’m sure I will read again and again. Not only
for the action filled story with intrigue and excitement on
every page, but because I’m a just a sucker for a romance
that has a few mountains to climb before it comes together.
What fun would love be if you didn’t have to fight for it
once in awhile?
