Rating: 4 Lyres
Charlotte Daughtery, also known as Charlie, is the daughter of notorious outlaw Bill Daughtery, and most of her life she has paid the price by being shunned or scorned. Now the good people of Concho Springs have decided to lynch her, and the only crime she is guilty of is being an outlaw’s daughter.
U.S. Marshal Trey Thornton arrives in Concho springs in the nick of time to save Charlie from the lynching mob but his intentions aren’t entirely honorable as he plans to use her as bait to catch her father and brothers.
I loved this story the chemistry between Trey and Charlie was inescapable. Charlie’s struggle between betraying her family or betraying the man she was growing to love was realistic and believable. Trey’s fight against his developing feeling for Charlie and he need to catch her father also was portrayed in a believable light. The characters were great the story was awesome. A real page turner I didn’t want it to end.
Unfortunately I can’t give this a 5 Lyre rating as I would of as right at the end of the book someone decided to change the heroine’s name, which is really sad. All that work and such a terrific story, and I was disappointed that no one picked up the error of using the wrong name for a major character in the book. It may seem like nit picking but to me an error involving main characters name’s is a big turn off .
