Wow! All three other reviewers gave this book 5 stars. I am more inclined to -5.
First, the Download Description above is not for this book, Dangerous, but rather another in Millie Criswell's series of western historical romance novels.
I did not like this book. It is totally unbelievable in regards to the time period and plot line. A greenhorn female horticulturist from Boston becomes a bounty hunter and must capture a man accused of murder so that she can collect the $500 reward and keep the home of her aunts from being forclosed by the bank. The BANKER makes it a condition of the mortgage that she capture this outlaw and bring him back for trial? What kind of right would he have for making that kind of demand? Thin plot line, very, very thin. This outlaw was an ex-Texas ranger (wrongly accused, of course) and someone with a huge amount of experience in tracking down men who didn't want to be found. What chance did she have? I'll tell you, none. The brother of the outlaw is our hero and he is still in the Rangers and is trying to get his brother first in order to clear up this mistake. On the trail he comes to a small town which reminds him of another small town where he has had a spot of trouble in the past (can you believe it? that is exactly how the author describes this scene!) so he decides to get drunk in order to forget all his troubles. A woman was pregnant but tried to say it was his baby in order to get him to marry her. He refused and now her four brothers are after him. Well, guess what, they find him. But he is so drunk that he cannot defend himself and the four men are beating him up. Wilhemina just happens to ride upon this scene and is outraged at the uneven numbers. She fights off the four (count them, four) men with her parasol and a derringer she keeps handy in her purse. How stupid can a plot get? She carries a parasol in the scabbard instead of a rifle? Just how many shots did she think that derringer held? How many shots did the author think a derringer held? Absolutely, totally, completely unbelievable!! Even in fictional life those BAD men would have just shot her and been done with it. She had already wasted one shot. What other reviewers see as humor I see as an affront to my intelligence.
I wish I could tell you that it got better. No, no. No such luck. It just went from one awful situation to another until I just had more than I could stomach. This one did not just go into my "to go" box, it was thrown in.
