Ben McCabe has only one thing on his mind when he's released from the Yuma Territorial Prison for a crime he didn't commit: Revenge. Four years of his life gone, spent in a torturous hellhole. He wants the man responsible brought to justice, regardless of the cost.
When Wisteria Bush finds an unconscious man next to the Colorado River, she knows she has to help him, no matter how dangerous he may be. She nurses him back to health to find he is a threat to her, but not in a way she'd ever imagined. When her brother takes up cattle rustling and intends to marry her to his boss, the handsome stranger has other ideas.

Ben spent 4 yrs in Yuma Prison; aptly name "Hell Hole". Those years turned him from a boy to a very bitter man, imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit.
Ben had received treatment within those walls no one should have to endure. His one driving need is to prove himself innocent & seek revenge. After release he is near death on the banks on the river. Wisteria is a spinster caring for her widowed brother's child, Robin.
Wisteria's brother sent for her under devious means then left her alone with the baby in near poverty. Baby Robin just made me want to smile. Author DeAnn Smallwood created a wonderful character in Baby Robin; she brought a wonderful element to this story. Wisteria finds Ben, sick, fevered, and unconscious, nurses him back to health. As his health improves, their relationship grows, revealing their past. The pacing is very good, the story moves along nicely, with twists and turns enough to keep the interest of reader. The gauntlet of emotions are in this book: greed, revenge, don't forget Ben seems to know a lot about doctoring, low self-esteem, a brother that betrays the one he is supposed to protect and love, and of course, redeeming love that can heal all wounds.
I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a fast paced, well thought out book with character developed well, dealing with a wealth of emotions and a great story line.
I received this book from Reading Alley in return for an honest book review.
Books reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author's opinion; book reviews on line under my name and on my blog are my opinion.
