I love Delores Fossen and her simmering lawmen guarding under the big Texas sky. From one series to another she creates romance filled with danger and suspense, captivating and spell binding stories of love, support and families.

The Appaloosa Pass Ranch Series continues to captivate, as the law enforcement seems to find love amidst the numerous secrets and the elusive Midnight Strangler that seems to bring all these characters together.


Deputy Sheriff Jax Crockett saw his ex-wife Paige buried a year ago, yet the message on his answering machine defies all odds. Faking her own death was the only way Paige knew to keep her son and the love of her life alive. Yet now, her position has been compromised and as she runs back to Appaloosa Ranch with a killer on her heels, only brings more danger to her family.

Utter shock and anger is what keeps Jax on guard even has his desire for Paige resurfaces. A desire and love that never died and now he will move heaven and earth to keep his wife and son safe from the killer, in the “Six Gun Showdown”.

This series has been very interesting and Delores Fossen sure pays attention in keeping all the characters in line and the plot steady and interesting. With secrets intertwining her characters, each story is narration with enough suspense, danger and romance to keep it interesting.

Received an ARC from Harlequin Intrigue via NetGalley for an honest review.
