All her life, beautiful Shiloh Mulvane has wanted to follow in her father’s revered footsteps as one of the Texas frontier’s greatest detectives. Now, she finally has her chance—by bringing sexy outlaw Justin McCord to her employer, a powerful judge who wants him to marry the daughter he allegedly compromised. But Justin has other ideas. . . .The secret spy has a mission to complete, and he knows what will happen in Houston: he’ll be forced into a sham marriage that will destroy the dream of Texas independence he’s fought for, unless . . . he’s already married.
In one bold moment, the tables turn, and Shiloh finds herself the captive of a new husband she cannot trust—or completely resist. Soon both are vulnerable to a passion as wild and unforgiving as the land they love, even as they’re pursued by those who would stop at nothing to destroy everything they hold dear . . .

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have enjoyed many of Susan Wiggs' books including "The Ocean Between Us" and the Willow Lake series. I felt that Shiloh & Justin never really seemed to get to know one another--not many conversations about their lives. The reader travels from Texas to England to Virginia/DC and back to Texas amid constant bickering between the two, and where one drama after another ends well but they can't get along. FINALLY you get to the point where they will live "happily ever after" and it seems like Wiggs ran out of steam and quit writing. It seemed to end abruptly and left me feeling like the most important conversations between S & J were left out. It was a struggle to keep reading this book compared to her others and the payoff was a disappointing conclusion.
I really got into this one! I have read her contempory novels and liked her style of writing plus I read quickly and her books are long but they keep you interested until the last page. It was a page turner from the start! I reccomend her highly!
I do not read many books a year for pleasure. Business books are my weekly thing- but this was a really nice vacation read. I am ordering more just because I forgot what it feels like to read for the fun of it...
