Publisher's Summary

She's running for her freedom and the life of her baby.

Claudine Hopkins is a woman on the run. A slave in pre-war Tennessee, she knows that if she doesn't escape now they'll take her baby, and she'd rather die than let that happen. But when she arrives in Arkansas, her worst nightmare becomes a reality. Lost and alone, she spends her days working toward the time when she can make things right again. 

Dan Graham is the head cow boss at Paradise Ranch. When the plans he's made for his life are overturned by a black-bearded outlaw, he sets out to seek revenge. 

Claudine and Dan cross paths in Cheyenne. Both have a goal, and both will do whatever it takes to reach that goal. But neither one of them is ready for what comes next. When unexpected love blooms between them they find themselves fighting for their very lives. But will Dan be willing to let go of his anger to embrace her love? Or will his need for a reckoning tear them apart?

Losing A Loved One, Searching and Finding Them Unexploredly

Vivi Holt doesn’t write a bad book, but this had a darker and sadder beginning then most.
The h and H both live through tragedies, but don’t let those tragedies destroy them...they move forward, determined and strong...eventually finding that HEA they both deserve.
the narrator does a nice job and keeps the story flowing.

Wonderful

This one was so surprising. I love that you can be surprised by what you think someone would do. I was so upset in the beginning, after what happened to Claudine. I loved the suspense, the twists, and the unconditional love Dan is capable of. Such a wonderful book.

Revenge or Forgiveness?

Claudine was a slave and was forced to give up her infant. Now almost 10 years have passed, she is free and is searching for her child. Dan is out for revenge against the man who killed the woman he loved and left her baby to die.
Dan and Claudine run into each other and Claudine has to rely on Dan many times to get out of some tough situations. Dan has a choice to make: continue with the revenge he has in mind or forgive and help Claudine.

I enjoy Vivi Holt's writing. Her plots and characters are believable and realistic. Amanda Stribling was the perfect narrator for this series. Her timing, pacing and character voices are spot on.

Cheyenne Reckoning

I love Vivi Holt's books. She mixes things up. I love how she writes about forbidden love (between different classes, race and religion) and how the characters deal with it. If you like that sort of thing then this is for you.

Color blind

During a time of slavery a mixed race couple who fall in love is not the norm. But God is color blind and so is love. Beautiful story. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

Dan and Claudine!

Another riveting story in the Paradise Valley series, Vivi Holt takes on a taboo topic of the times, as well as a suspense filled romance! Claudine, a slave running for life with her baby, is captured and sold separately from her child. Now on a mission to locate her little girl, she finds herself caught up in danger. Dan Graham arrives at the house of the woman he loves only to find that she has been killed. Now seeking revenge, he crosses paths with Claudine. What these two don't realize is not only is there danger on their horizon, but feelings are growing! Will they survive and find love? Holt writes with love in her heart. It's a story of family, motherly love, hurt and revenge and blossoming romance. I loved Dan and Claudine because their love didn't see the color of their skin. They found love and solace in each other in times of fear, times of love and looked to the future with love in their hearts.

Amanda Stribling brings this gem to life with her wonderful voices. She has a knack for understanding her characters and is able to add that in to voices she uses. I enjoy her narrations, and am glad she has continued this series.
