Of This Book Wasthis book was well developed with a ew twists and turns nothing really unexpected but all nicely done I wished I had read the Ravishing Ruby first book in this series before as the story and the hero character especially seemed to be strongly linked with one another I really enjoyed the way the book started and theirst encounters between Fiona and Jacob However after a while I realized that all their developments and inner changes would just be stated that would remain very secondary and almost absent rom this bookThe overall tone was light despite a ew murders that allegedly traumatized the characters Most of the humor worked though I must confess that I started rolling my eyes at the antics of the two old biddiesLast comment low steam in this book This story got me rom the very beginning When the two main characters irst meet he is naked and bound in a Old Yeller field ofox tails being out witted by a thief She shows up over Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer from a ridgerom a picnic with her Lincoln: An Illustrated Biography father and starts a conversation with him When she hears herather call he asks her to untie him She ask what is it that you do On Being Human: Reflections on Life and Living for a living his reply I am a police man She very politely says that if he was anything other than a police man she would but since she does not like them and thinks they are deplorable she is sorry and must leave For the next ten years Jacob Grey hunts down Fiona McFee and herather making there life harder and harder Until Frommers Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World finding her in Chicago and telling her about a deal he hasor her that would pardon her and her ather or all their crimes She does not like it at irst but after a while she agrees He puts her up in a nice hotel and tells that she will need to learn how to talk and act like a widow rom Britain who has money This does not work out so well so he sends a letter to his sister who lives in Chicago and is a amous poet The letter is intercepted by two sisters who are like there aunts since they have been around them since Jacob and his sister were children These two help make the story complete and really make a better story or they are always just getting into something or putting the two of them together even though they don t know they like each other As the story goes along he inally sees her as a women and an attractive women at that she actually likes that he has his ways and is just scared that at the end that they won t be together There is a subplot with a man escaping rom prison and wanting to kill Jacob since he was the one that put him there but the main story is the love story of two people Hip Pocket Sleaze: The Lurid World of Vintage Adult Paperbacks from two different worlds and how they break down their own ideas and let be A very good story with a lot ofunny moments and l liked the battering between the two main characters I got this book Mookie: Life, Baseball, and the '86 Mets from net galley I like the start of this American Historical The heroine is aeisty street smart girl the daughter of an Irish con artist well known to lawmakers in multiple states The hero a US marshall has been chasing this slippery duo or ten years since a young Fiona abandoned him bare bottomed and tied up in the middle of nowhere not uite without a backward glance because the curious teen did steal many glances before she left him to his ate Now Jacob Grey s long arm has Clawback finally nabbed his man and the good marshall has plansor the hustler and his clever daughter Jacob blackmails Fiona into helping him trap a counterfeiter using her sharp card playing skills The language is authentic reminiscent of Jo Goodman s Westerns Unfortunately the heroine lost her spunk and submitted herself too readily to Jacob s bullying tactics It got to the point where she was willing to accept crumbs rom himShe I ll take whatever you re willing to give me Stay with me Give me what you can Th When Wild Wild West meets My Fair Lady It gives a unny romance tender wit.
