From Publishers Weekly Young Bostonian Patience Sinclair and her sisters, Hope and Charity, have vowed to have one grand adventure before marrying or settling into a career. For Patience, a season on the western rodeo circuit, researching historic and current female competitors for her doctoral dissertation, seems both an exciting escapade and a timely escape from spoiled society brat Tyler Stanfield, a rejected ex-lover who's been stalking her. Despite the instant, if prickly, attraction that Patience shares with handsome Dallas Kingman, a World Champion All-Around Cowboy, the pair's commitment to very different careers makes anything more than a summer fling seem impossible. But the two grow closer, even as mysterious malignant forces strive to tear the Circle C rodeo, owned by Dallas's uncle, apart. Passion predominates over intrigue in Martin's second Sinclair Sisters installment (after Midnight Sun), but the suspense serves to keep reader interest piqued as the protagonists agonize their way through apparently insoluble personal conflicts. A parallel suspense subplot involving historic rodeo murders lends the story some complexity, and several side romances and romantic rivalries add considerable charm to this satisfying tale.

From Patience Sinclair, the middle daughter of three (her sister Charity's story was told in Midnight Sun [BKL My 1 03]) is happy to start a summer of traveling with the rodeo as she researches the history of female rodeo performers for her doctoral thesis. On the circuit she meets all kinds, including a would-be rapist, a scheming femme fatale, and Dallas Kingman, the reigning World Champion All-Around Cowboy. Sparks fly, both in what looks like a doomed relationship with Dallas (he wants to be a cowboy and she wants to be a professor) and literally, as someone tries to destroy the rodeo company owned by Dallas's uncle through fire and deadly tampering with equipment. One of the most fascinating facets of this tale is Patience's discovery in a great-grandmother's diary of references to a serial killer who preyed on young female rodeo performers in rodeo's early days. Martin's signature tender but sexy lovemaking scenes make this an all-around winner. Diana Tixier Herald
