This is the second in the Lost Nugget stories about the McCord boys, a light western romance that will appeal to series fans. The book stands on its own, but to get the whole story readers will need to read all three books. After all, the gold is still out there somewhere.
Things might have gone a little slower, but a series of near-death "accidents" throw them into each other's arms and send the adrenaline level way up. Wyatt wants to protect Marilee, but she has no intention of letting anyone put her in a cage. Will the two lovers unite to ward off trouble, or will their spats make them oblivious to the very real danger closing in on them? (FOREVER, May, 352 pp., $6.99)
