This exciting and sensual romantic suspense tale is a great start to a new series featuring the Oklahoma branch of the Colton family. I am not familiar with the books that are written by multiple authors about other members of this extended family, yet had no trouble being drawn into this particular story. The heartsore and prickly Jack is determined to think the worst of Tracy but is still drawn to her and her immediate rapport with the lovable Seth is undeniable. There are several threads that are left dangling, even though the excitement and danger that surround the heroine are dealt with in this tale, so I look forward to watching more events unfold around this branch of the Coltons.
