A Texas cowboy comes to her rescue but who is he really?
As the daughter of a presidential candidate, and an identical twin, Cassidy Hamilton left the Montana family ranch to escape the notoriety and live her own life. But when someone tries to abduct her off a Houston sidewalk, Cassidy longs for the cavalry. Which suddenly comes in the tall, dark and sexy form of cowboy Jack Durand. The gorgeous Texan doesn't recognize her, wants nothing from her and is determined to keep her safe. Cassidy's kind of man
As Jack takes Cassidy into hiding, he hates keeping secrets from the beautiful blonde. But Jack knows more about the kidnapping attempt than he's admitting. Forced on the run in the Lone Star State and Montana, Jack and Cassidy begin piecing together a jagged family puzzle, exposing a plot years in the making one that will either tear them apart or bring them closer together than ever.
Without the cops or the feds, the two of them were on their own. And Jack had no idea what they were up against. All he knew was that he now had the assumed future president's daughter's life in his hands.
INTO DUST by BJ Daniels is a electrifying tale of gripping romantic suspense that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat throughout. As this series nears its conclusion effective with the next book, the ongoing conflicts that have progressed with each book intensify as they are all coming to a head. Thank goodness, we don't have long to wait for the final book, HONOR BOUND, as it will be hitting shelves this October!
Each of the books in this series has featured the story of one of the six daughters of presidential candidate, Buck Hamilton, who has an immense spread in Montana at the foot of the Crazy Mountains. This tale is the story of Cassidy Hamilton, one of the youngest twins, and Texas rancher Jack Durand, who are both unknowingly caught up in a political plot that has been brewing for years. The story takes place in both Texas and Montana. As with all these books, there are multiple plot lines seamlessly interwoven through-out including those involving Buck, his former wife Sarah, Sheriff Curry, Nettie, Pam's daughter Tiffany and more. Horror of horrors! Even the Sheriff's beloved crows are in danger within these pages! I have become quite attached to those crows!
While this book could be enjoyed as a stand -alone read, if that is your preference, your appreciation of the story will be exponentially increased if you have read the series in order. This series is thrilling beyond compare and I can't recommend it enough. To maximize your pleasure, do yourself a favor and read them all in order!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this stunning wild and dangerous ride of a read:
"Seriously? You tried to ride a bucking horse?"
"You did the same thing."
He nodded. "But you're..."
"Female? You noticed." She grinned at him and realized she was flirting about the same time he did.
She angled her head to look up at him. Her blue eyes were huge in the moonlight. One tear still clung to her lash, looking like a shining jewel. He touched it with his fingertip and it dissolved, warm and wet into his skin. His gaze shifted to her bowshaped mouth. Her lips trembled, then parted. A soft mew of a sound escaped them.
There was nothing to do but kiss her.
She dropped her voice to a hoarse whisper that turned his blood to slush. "You will wake up and find me standing over your bed. You will see the flash of a blade before I plunge it into your heart. My face will be the last thing ever see."
"I can't understand why anyone would ever leave here," he said if as captivated by their surroundings as she was. "It's...breathtaking." He pulled up to the house and cut the engine before he looked over at her. "Just like you."
B.J. Daniels is one of my very favorite authors. It is a fact that she writes beyond-exciting western romantic suspense like no other! This installment answered a bunch of my questions about the Prophecy and its sleeping agents but brought to the fore a slew more! Be prepared to be assaulted by political intrigue, malevolent bad villains, and surprising twists and turns that will leave your head spinning. I screamed, steamed and swooned. INTO DUST will draw you in from the very beginning and you will not want it to end! Truly, you should run to whatever brick-and-mortar or online bookstore you use and buy the whole series now! It's a keeper!
