DESCRIPTION: When Ellie Wilder takes her sister from their grandfather's home, she's determined to put her family back together and write of their adventures. Then she runs into Jacob Harper, a man who resembles Jake the Snake, a notorious outlaw who once rode with Billy the Kid. Is it possible the outlaw who escaped justice has mended his ways? Or is the handsome Mr. Harper now murdering servant girls in Austin? Finding out the truth could be the journalistic opportunity of a lifetime.
Former Texas Ranger Jake Harper has returned to Texas to help solve the Servant Girl Annihilator murders. But when a similar murder occurs in Harmony, Texas, Jake goes undercover as Jake the Snake to find a connection between the series of brutal murders. Then Ellie Wilder shows up. Her snooping could blow his cover and get her killed, but Ellie soon becomes a bigger threat to his heart than his investigation.
Genres: Crime fiction, Western romance
Wilder Hearts had a lot of cute, embarrassing moments that make the readers fall head over heels for Jake and Ellie. Jake is an undercover ex-Ranger working to investigate a series of murders from the inside. Ellie is a stubborn, need-to-know journalist trying to solve this murder mystery on her own. What's worse? She thinks Jake might be the bad guy! This story is a hot one, so make sure you've got the fan at the ready for this trip down to old Texas!
Usually, in books like this, the build up of tensions between the main characters is either over or under played. I didn't find this the case with Wilder Hearts- that tension is GOLD! As for the pace of the plot, I found it was well written. You get a solid base, an understanding of the characters, and then you get quite a bit of action and suspense in there, too! This is a great read for Western Romance and crime-fiction lovers, alike!
Genres: Western Romance, tragedy, crime
One thing is for sure, Ellie Wilder is a girl who knows how to persevere! When she gets set on something, she makes it happen! It's an admirable trait for the character and a valuable lesson to teach readers-- even if it does get her into trouble!
Ellie is a young lass with big, bold dreams of becoming a hot shot journalist. When serial killings and a man who looks an awful lot like Jake The Snake pop up, she sees this as one heck of an opportunity!
Meanwhile, Mr. Harper aka Jacob has got himself a dirty little secret he desperately needs to keep under lock and key.
When they first meet, Ellie's journalist senses start to tingle. She knows this mysterious Mr. Harper is hiding something and she's going to find out what!
This ensues sexual/legitimate frustrations for both parties that inevitably end in a hot romance!
There were a few twists I didn't expect a story like this to have, so those were fun little surprises! This is definitely an interesting Crime/Western Romance/Tragedy novel.
The actual writing style is playful and engaging. I found it was easy to lose myself in this style, which of course made it a fast read! Great plot, great pace, great romance! It'll keep your heart racing for more reasons than one!
