When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly have known that she would not only get a front-row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus but would innocently witness something that would put her life in peril. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie — and her world — completely upside down.
A. J. Gallagher didn’t crash the set in dusty Arizona to rub elbows with Hollywood’s elite. Unable to ignore ghosts from the past that refuse to stay buried, A.J. came to put an end to the false legend that has tarnished the reputation of his family. But when he confronts Alison, sparks fly. And when Alison is targeted by ruthless criminals, suddenly she and A.J. must face the intense attraction that threatens to consume them—and survive the danger that threatens their very lives.

Very unexpected... I really enjoyed it, mostly because of the interesting characters. we got to know them in depth and and to love them (or hate them). The story line kept me interested, and although predictable at times I didn’t mind it because the dialogs were enjoyable. The narration was nice, although a bit too fast to my liking at first, but later i got used to it.
I'm sorry. Those super steamy hearts-beating-as-one endlessly long chapters with the requisite earth-moving simultaneous orgasms are soooo over the top. The plot's really not bad, although stretched way beyond what it needs to be. Regardless of any review to the contrary, this is a romance novel, not a mystery or adventure story. If you are into this kind of thing, well, you'll probably love it. I really hated it, flipped through the last bunch of chapters just to see if it would end the way I thought it would (yes, it did). For the genre, it's well written and maybe even innovative, but I hated it. I reached the point of near nausea toward the end of the last half, as if I'd eaten way too much very sweet dessert. Maybe it's age related, or maybe I just need grittier characters and more complex stories. Whatever. I also found the male narrator's voice very annoying. I've encountered him before and found his voice very annoying then, too. It has a whiny quality that is like chalk on my personal blackboard. Yes, it is subjective and maybe it wouldn't bother you, but it actually began to make my skin crawl. I wanted to enjoy this, really I did. I tried to like it. I stuck with it past the point when I might have otherwise stopped, but ... For the hard core steamy romance enthusiasts only. The rest of you, beware!
This had to be a literary challenge to write and I was Impressed. Spent a little time Confused at first until I got the hang of the "characters". Blending present vs. past, natural vs supernatural, sane vs insane, love vs. lust...wheew you got to have skills but she pulled it off.
My first Suzanne Brockmann novel, but I'll certainly read more! This was a fun, exciting romance with good depth in the characters, a historical mystery and a funny but determined ghost! The duel narrators was a little annoying, but do-able.
Awesome! I had so much fun "reading" this one...I could not put it down. In fact I listened to it twice in 3 days, and I am not an avid reader! Suz writes in such a vivid way that I thought I was in the plot most of the time. Many of the situations were just hilarious.
I got to say, when I first started listening to Patrick Lowler (who makes Suz's books just GREAT to listen to), I kept seeing Decker and Dave (from the Troubleshooter series) in my mind because he used the same voices. It was kind of funny, but it dissapeared within 1 or 2 chapters!
If you have never read Suz's books, be aware of explicit passages.
This was such a great story. I enjoyed it all the way through and didnt want to put it down. It is a great comedy romance book. I caught myself laughing out loud then rewinding it and listening to it again to laugh again. I like how the story is told from the view of each character and the fact that it has a male and female narrator made it more fun. This is a chick lit but a fun laugh out loud romance. Worth the credit and I will be telling my book buddies about it.
I love Suzanne Brockmann.. I thought this was a little different. It was very good, but not great. If your looking for Navy Seals, not the book for you.
I love those two readers. I could listen to them for hours and I have. This is one of my favorite books. I have listen too it many times. I hope you enjoy it as I do.
