About the book:

Seth Kincaid survived a fire in a cave, but he's never been the same. He was always a reckless youth, but now he's gone over the edge. He ran off to the Civil War and came back crazier than ever.

After the war, nearly dead from his injuries, it appears Seth got married. Oh, he's got a lot of excuses, but his wife isn't happy to find out Seth doesn't remember her. Callie has searched, prayed, and worried. Now she's come to the Kincaid family's ranch in Colorado to find her lost husband.

Callie isn't a long-suffering woman. Once she knows her husband is alive, she wants to kill him. She's not even close to forgiving him for abandoning her.

Then more trouble shows up in the form of a secret Seth's pa kept for years. The Kincaid brothers might lose their ranch if they can't sort things out. It's enough to drive a man insane--but somehow it's all making Seth see things more clearly. And now that he knows what he wants, no one better stand in his way.

My review:

I started to read the previous book, but wasn't fond of the characters, so I went on to the third. I liked Callie in this story, though the plot seemed a bit strange. I did want them to work things out. Seth was likable at times and other times his inner dialog made me think of a five year old. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but if the author intended to portray him as a bit immature in his thinking, she did well on that account. Maybe I should have read the prior books to get a true appreciation of the cavern, but I didn't get the fascination.

I have to admit the romantic elements and their inner dialog regarding each other was at times heart warming and intriguing. I liked how the author showed their attraction to each other. The comments Callie made toward Seth at first were probably intended to be humorous, but I didn't find them very funny. All in all the book was okay. I had parts that I really liked and other parts that I didn't like so that's why I rounded it down. If it hadn't had good romantic tension I probably wouldn't have finished it. The ending was good, too. Conquering demons is always a nice way to wrap up a story, though there is no way to know if he was really better after that since the story ended.

A copy of this book was given to me for review by the publicist for this tour. The content of the review is entirely my opinion.
