Mackenzy Cord has loved Samantha Carrington since he was ten years old. But he hasn’t told her that. As a bounty hunter, he doesn’t think he can offer her the kind of life she deserves. Her father is the town banker so Savannah is used to a life of luxury. But now Mac has almost enough money saved up to be able to give her the life she deserves.

Savannah’s father wants to see her married and taken care of so he arranges a marriage for her. After overhearing her fiancé say he is more interested in her father’s money than in her, she runs away--only to escape from an attempted kidnapping and to land in jail for bank robbery.

Savannah’s father wants to pay Mac to go find her and bring her home. They strike a deal and Mac goes in search of the woman he loves. He finds her and is ready to take her home but she insists that they find the bank robbers and get her money back. She has a stubborn streak and to keep her from going off on her own, Mac agrees.

With their rising attraction, Mac tries to tell Savannah he loves her, but she doesn’t believe him. She thinks he is only saying it out of obligation. But Savannah is very tempted when she realizes she is seeing Mac as a man not just her friend. He’d be embarrassed if he knew. Wouldn’t he?

Hero For Hire is a sweet romance with some sizzle. Mac and Savannah spend a lot of time fighting their reactions to their attraction and fear of how the other one will react, but when they finally give in to their feelings things start to move along. I love Sheridon Smythe’s books and this was no exception. This is storytelling at its best. A very enjoyable read.
