Short and Sweet Book Reviews - #78 - Renegade;s Pride by B.J. Daniels, Wind River Cowboy by Lindsay McKenna, The Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

Renegade's Pride (Cahill Ranch #1)Renegade's Pride by B.J. Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Look for some spice in this story. While the story line is about a murder committed 9 years ago Daniels has added some very different spice in this series. It seems that Lillian's father thinks he was abducted by aliens years ago and that they are still coming around. Look for hints to why he thinks that. I liked how Lillian had fulfilled some of her dreams while Trask was gone and how Trask had matured before he came back to prove he was innocent. There is a side romance featuring Lillian's older brother that looks like it will be a long running issue as the series progresses. A nice start to a new series that is set once again in Montana.

Wind River Cowboy (Wind River Valley #3)Wind River Cowboy by Lindsay McKenna
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Garret was featured in the previous book. Like the other characters in the story he is ex-military and suffering from PTSD. He has found a place on Wind River Ranch. Now Kira a new vet has arrived and she was part of his black ops team. This is a nice story that uses the problems some of our returning vets are having as background for the story. A nice romance between Garret and Kira with some added problems. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. There is one problem that is outside the PTSD of the characters and it is adding to the tension in the story. It is keeping me wondering how that will be resolved.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Devil in Spring (The Ravenels, #3)Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, does not want to get married and has gone to great pains to see that he stays single. ( If that title seems familiar you probably read The Devil in Winter where there was another Lord St. Vincent who did not want to get married. This is his son.) Lady Pandora Ravenel feels the same about marriage so of course they find themselves in a compromising situation which is really innocent but looks otherwise. A fun story with a lot of laugh out loud moments. It was nice seeing Gabriel's parents again along with the Ravenels. Look for an interesting hook when a side characters catches their attention. I was left wondering who he really was. A fun addition to the series.
