Product Description

Product Description

Colin McCrory runs afoul of the ruthless and deadly Tucson Ring that lures him from his Arizona cattle kingdom by kidnapping his innocent young daughter. During his search for her, he meets a beautiful bordello madam in a small Sonora silver town. A powerful attraction hums between them as he asks her to help him rescue his only child.

Maggie Worthington, half owner of the Silver Eagle Saloon and bordello, can't take her eyes off the hard-looking Scot from the instant he strides into her life. Colin could be her way out of her shame-filled past...and perhaps she might even gain a daughter to replace the one who died years ago. She makes him a desperate offer.

A Deal He Can't Refuse: She will help him find his daughter. In exchange, Colin must marry the madam. The hot-tempered Scot is furious. Yet without Maggie he'll never save his daughter. He has no options. But can two lonely people find love in spite of stalking assassins and the shadows that haunt their pasts?

4.0 out of 5 stars Double standards ! 18 Sep 2012
By zoogogo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the price this was a very good story containing several strands and a little hypocrisy from the hero.The heroine and the daughter of the hero have both suffered similar fates from loving unwisely but while the heroine had no support in her youth and had to make the best of things becoming eventually a bordello madam McCrory's daughter has access to a loving father and a woman who had already walked in her shoes. Determind to escape her present life she blackmails McCrory into marriage but he wriggles out of it at the last moment. Now he finds dealing with his daughter a different matter and is soon forced back into the blackmail bargain but with great resentment.Life and events carry on and just when all seems to be becoming resolved a VERY dark secret emerges from McCrory's past and his shame nearly causes the loss of the woman he loves.

It's good...Not her best by any means, but compared to many Native American books out there it's head and shoulder above
most of them.

I loveeed this book! This is my first Ms.Henke book and I am reading the reviews of her other works to see wich one will be next and if it will have the same trill!!
What I like best was the story of Collin and Maggie more than of Eden and Wolf (very tender and deep of the feelings those two).But Colin was just IRRESISTIBLE !!!!
Will read it AGAIN in a near futute!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 and 1/2 stars - Ranchers, Indians and the Arizona Territory! 10 Oct 2011
By Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first by Shirl Henke and I liked it. She is the author of scores of Western romances, has been a RITA Finalist and won seven awards from Romantic Times. The novel reflects her great research and she pays attention to historical details which is important to me. While this one didn't quite rise to 5 stars, I can recommend it as an interesting portrayal of the American west. Set in the late 19th century in the Arizona Territory, it is a tale of second chances.

Maggie Worthingon was once a Boston debutante who made a bad decision and eloped with a smooth talking southerner--who had no intention of marrying her. Abandoned and forced into prostitution, she finds a way out of that world to become a madam in a successful bordello. She wants no man in her bed but longs for respectability. When she meets Colin McCrory she thinks she has found her ticket out. Colin was born in Scotland of a poor family but came to America. First he became an Indian scalper killing Apaches, but he hated the work and rose above it to become a successful rancher who now treats the Indians fairly, even looking out for their welfare on the White Mountain Reservation. A widower, he has no plans to marry having worshiped his first wife. When his daughter is taken by a man who worked for him, a smooth gunslinger, Colin sets out to bring her back. He takes with him a half Apache named Wolf Blake, a hired gun. In searching for the outlaws' hideout, they seek the help of Maggie who knows the area. In exchange for her help, and comfort for his daughter once found, Maggie demands Colin marry her. Colin wants Maggie in his bed, but he has no desire to marry a whore.

It's a good story but there were a few things that didn't quite ring true for me and it was all in the relationships. It's really the story of two romances, Colin and Maggie and Wolf and Eden (Colin's daughter). I found it was often difficult to picture Colin and Wolf. Colin was supposedly Scottish but there was little Scottish about him. On the cover he is pictured as a young man but he is really 40 with graying black hair. Wolf, a half breed who had been treated badly by whites, including his own father, didn't seem very bitter to me as you would expect, and he is quick to declare his love for Eden. I would have thought that would be slower in coming on both their parts. I still liked the story, but things like that do detract. Likely, I will read more of Henke's novels, especially when I am looking for a Western historical.

Its really the story of a woman that never gave up. No matter if you make mistakes, which we all do, persistence does pay off most of the time.

Loved this book. Colin was so great and Maggie had sure come a long way. Wolf and Eden were nice too but I think Eden's words of love were a little much considering she was only 17. I loved Eileen and her scottish brogue. It was perfect. Overall, a wonderful read.
