This review is from: Foxfire Bride (Mass Market Paperback)
Set during the Civil War. Fox was the best scout in the area until a gunshot to her leg ended the career. She lives a quiet life now with her best friend, an elderly black man called Peaches. As much as Peaches has tried to help her, Fox could not get past her thirst for revenge against Hobb Jennings who ruined her life when she was a child. Jennings still lives high on the hog in Denver, where he runs Jennings Mining & Mercantile. A chance for Fox to kill Jennings arrives in the form of a handsome man looking to hire her as a guide through the wilderness to Denver.
Matthew Tanner needs to reach Denver within three months. His father, Hobb Jennings, is being held by kidnappers and he must get the ransom there in time. Two other men are in their party, Hanratty and Brown, as they begin heading west carrying gold ... gold that everyone in the world seems to already know about. Fox agrees, but Tanner must also agree to hire Peaches as their wrangler.
The trek is long and hard. There is danger at every turn. Tanner has no idea, at first, that Fox plans to kill his father. But even when he does learn it he cannot change the way he feels for Fox, nor does he wish to. However, he cannot believe his father has done what she claims.
***** The author hides Fox's real name until far into the book. Therefore, I will not reveal it. Rest assured the nickname is worthy. I especially love the fact that the author, Maggie Osborne, did not make her characters to be physically perfect, such as Fox missing an earlobe. This made Fox seem more real to me.
The story is extremely well written and there is something going on every minute. Boredom will NOT be a problem while you read this gem! If I did not know better I would swear Maggie Osborne somehow shocked life into the characters, even the secondary ones. Highly recommended reading. *****
