About the Book:
Sheriff Jonathan MacSweeny is in charge of keeping the peace in Prospect Springs. Frontier living isn't what it used to be. It's hard to survive in the New Old West and it's even harder when your area doesn't exactly embrace supernaturals--and you howl at the moon. That being said, he's good at his job and has a reputation with the ladies. When he learns his childhood sweetheart is to be married off to the town sleazebag, he goes in guns blazing to see to it she's his. Problem is, Molly isn't the same girl he remembers from ten years prior. Now she's a gun-toting, foul-mouthed, vixen with a badge of her own.
Special Marshal Molly Cogan never planned to set foot back in Prospect Springs. When her friend gets the harebrained idea to steal her identity in an attempt to protect her from the bounty the outlaws have on her head, Molly finds herself standing right smack dab in the middle of chaos--or home in her case. it isn't long before Jonathan is there, flashing that famous MacSweeny boy smile and tempting her in ways she wasn't prepared for. This heart-hardened Marshal has her work cut out for her if she plans to face her past fears and her past sweetheart.
I felt this book was a 4 out of 5 stars. The book was a little short, but was fun and exciting in all the right ways. While I loved that Molly was brave and independent, I hated how ditzy she was. Instead of asking Jon outright whether he was married, she assumed the rumors she heard were true. Then leading him to believe she was engaged, knowing they both had feelings for each other, was kind of a low blow. Though I can give her a little leeway after the way she was treated by Gerald. Jonathan is probably my favorite character here, but Cole comes in a close second. Jon's got breathtaking good looks, is witty, and puts the boys of his family in their place when they're skirting his patience. He's definitely what I would consider a dream-man! To sum it all up, aside from Molly's ditzy blonde moments (no offense intended), the book was really fun and I enjoyed every moment of it!
