WILD TEXAS WIND
Raz Colt said whiskey, women, and a fine cigar go a long way to make a man feel comfortable, but only one thing keeps a man warm at night—money. When he learns rancher H. H. O’Hara is offering ten thousand dollars for the safe return of his daughter—with her virtue intact—Raz heeds the call. All he had to do was return Arden O’Hara to her daddy and collect the reward. When he finds Arden, he learns she staged the kidnapping to force her fiance to come after her. The so-called fiance has not manned up and is waiting at the ranch for her return or her funeral, whichever. But someone is definitely determined to kill hot-tempered, wildcat Arden before she can get back to the ranch. With the big reward, fortune hunters are crawling out of the woodwork. Raz has to keep her safe while not knowing friend from foe. How safe can he keep her when he wants her—and not for the money?

This story is very well plotted and fast-paced with enjoyable touches of humor. I admit I didn’t know the villain’s identity until revealed by the author. That’s a real compliment to Ms McCaffrey. As a devoted reader of mysteries, cozies, and romantic suspense, I usually guess the villain near the first of the book. I’d say this book is a must-read for anyone who loves romance, adventure, and a good book.
As an aside, I was happy to learn that Ms McCaffrey is considering a linked book with Kip Cooper, a secondary character in this book, as the hero.
