Review: Big Sky Lawman by Marilyn Pappano
October 2000 ~ Montana Mavericks
Book blurb: “NO ONE ESCAPE THE LONG ARM OF THE LAW…”
Finding a murderer was the only thing that deputy Sloan Ravencrest could think about. Until his investigation led him straight into stormy Crystal Cobbs’s welcoming arms. Crystal said she could help Sloan in his quest for justice, but Sloan sensed she was hiding something from him. Determined to uncover Crystal’s secrets, Sloan soon found himself torn between the mysterious beauty who had laid claim to his heart and the duty that was a part of his soul. Would the truth forever drive the lovers apart…or bind their hearts together?
– I admit I’m not a big fan of psychic romances but I am a huge fan of Marilyn Pappano. Her writing is always effortless to read and her character development is spot on. Crystal starts off in victim mode and it takes a while for her to get her feet back under her. I found her ‘me first’ attitude understandable but I think she clung to it a little too long and I was starting to get annoyed.
The hero is solid from page one and he doesn’t go through as big a transformation as the heroine though he is no less a compelling character. Big Sky Lawman is a well-written contemporary slash romantic suspense romance with enough passion and tension to keep readers turning the pages. ~ Ana, www.ireadromance.com
