DESERT FIRE by Marcia Lynn McClure
Jackson McCall comes upon a young woman who's out cold and appears to be running away from something. He brings her home to the family ranch where he lives with his mother and two brothers. When she finally comes to, she finds she doesn't have any memory of who she is or why she was running. The family is good to her and she becomes very fond of them but doesn't quite know what to make of Jackson. He is very protective but also seems somewhat distant with her. As she starts to gain her memory a little at a time, she realizes that she might possibly put this family and the man she's come to love, in grave danger.
I thoroughly enjoy Desert Fire. I received it in the mail from a friend and opened it up to see how the story starts and ended up reading the whole thing. What a page turner! Loved the dialog and the characters were great fun! This story made me laugh when I was reading some of the interaction between the brothers and it made me sigh at some of the moments between Malaina and Jackson. The more I read Marcia Lynn McClure's books the more I like them. This is a short read that feels like a full story. I would definitely recommend Desert Fire if you like a good, clean, old fashioned, historical romp complete with mystery, action, suspense and romance!
