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
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.
