t know what to thinkAt this point both Livie and Cooper are in pain and both are somewhat responsible Livie should have told him what happened as soon as she got back instead of pretending everything was fine She compounded the problem when she Matti In the Wallet didn t tell him about the pregnancy or the blackmail notes leaving him feeling like she neither loves nor trusts him On the other hand if Cooper hadn t been so proud and unwilling to bend even a little Livie might have felt comfortable going to him right away Iid like the fact that once he recovered from the shock Cooper was Raised

the book With the problems they were having I really wasn t sure at the beginning just how good a chance Cooper and Livie had to make a go of their relationship It wasn t easy but they Citizen Cain did manage to earn back each other s trust and belief in their future As for the blackmailer and the murderer there were several twists that kept me guessing as to who it might be I had a feeling about the identity but I couldn t figure out the why and the how until almost the end There was also a last bit of a threat to Livie s life where only her ability to stay calm in a crisis kept her safe until Cooper could come to her rescue While the mystery of the threat to Livie is solved by the end of the book the uestions of Sarah s return carry over into the next book I also enjoyed the appearances of various characters from the Beartooth Montana series especially Sheriff Frank Curry He is the lawman in charge of the murder investigation and the uestions surrounding Sarah s return from theead There is a glimpse into his continuing issue with the young woman who tried to kill him This was a Trail of Secrets disjointed story with too many plots lines and poorly written Iisliked the characters perhaps too much of the past traditional roles and expectations The female part Livie Hamilton was weak whiny and unlikeable as was her love interest Cooper Barnett who was autocratic moody and accusing for most of the book They were poor communicators and thus there was much misunderstanding Neither of the characters was accountable for their feelings and actions for too much of the story 35 stars An interesting group of characters and mystery plot with to be revealed in follow up books although I am not sure that I am motivated to read the whole series through perhaps I ll read the final one as well. Zzard by a man she thought she could trust she's pregnantbut unsure who the father is With an unknown blackmailer threatening to expose her she must confess to Cooper and trust he'll still protect her But when the truth falls into place she may lose the only man she's ever loved or wor.

I love BJ Daniels No other author brings Montana and cowboys to life like she How to Train a Cowboy does For a Harleuin author she is a master story teller Her books always have a romance and a mystery a perfect combination In this book there are a lot of plots sub plots and past plots along with a mess of characters to go along with all that Messy messy messyThis book is the first of The Montana Hamiltons series We have the sixaughters of Buckmaster Hamilton a very wealthy rancher turned politician a United States Senator with visions of the White House He has a few skeletons in his closet too His first wife One Special Moment died 22 years ago in an auto accident and her body was never recovered I have a feeling that this will be a overarching theme for the seriesThis book is about Livie She has some serious problems Her stubborn and impulsive traits got her in a whole mess of trouble blackmail and an unplanned pregnancy and the pregnancy could be the result of beingrugged and raped Cooper Livie s fianc is a cowboy He just can t understand why he had to fall in love with Olivia Hamilton He is an up by his bootstrap kind of guy and will not accept any help from Buckmaster Hamilton Now Livia has told him that she is being blackmailed and is pregnant and the baby may be the blackmailers That A Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain doesn t hurt as much as her not trusting him when it happened DNFThis non romance romance was a pain to read More so because it contained lines like this one The baby stays Dad will be tickled to have a grandchild no matter how he gets one says one of the hundred sisters the idiotic heroine has Yes right Itoesn t matter that her sister might have been raped and this baby may well be the result of rape we Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, don t care about the provenance a woman s body is not hers it belongs to reproduction and to reactionary politicians and their followers The writer finds nothing wrong with this position I could even picture this BJ Daniels as one of those who harass and harangue women outside hospitals and clinics These things coming from female writers make me truly sick Ten fat zeroes for this book which wants the babies of rapists butoes not take care to represent a single sex scene between hero and heroine BJ Daniels has The Mommy Makeover done it again Just when I think her books couldn t get any better she obliterates all my expectations WILD HORSES is a highly suspenseful roller coaster ride full of intrigue manipulation jealousy greed blackmail murder and a twist so crazy you will be begging her for the second book The characters areynamic and the plot is outstanding BJ is a master of capturing your attention and not letting to until you ve experienced every emotion known to man A true storyteller in every sense of the wordThe Montana Hamiltons series is set in the same world as the Beartooth Montana series Several characters overlap including Sheriff Frank Curry I feel so sorry for this poor man having to The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives deal with all this mayhem in a normally uiet backcountry But he sure knows how too his job and A River
