If you haven’t had a chance to meet the men of Maverick Montana, you really need to get acquainted with them. This is the second book in this series, and it’s wonderful. It picks up a little before the end of the last book (since Sophie was holding her baby at the end of the last book, and she’s pregnant in this one). This one follows Quinn and Juliet, whose romance was set up in the last book.
The good thing about a series like this is some of the romances can be set up early on. There was no insta-love for Juliet and Quinn because they already knew each other. It makes the whole relationship believable, or as believable as a relationship with a hot, dominant, Native-American rancher who’s also the sheriff can be. You get what I mean, though, right? What I really loved about these two was the power play. Quinn is dominant, which makes me all kinds of happy. He’s only a little kinky, but he likes to be in control and I love that about him. He and Juliet burn up the sheets pretty well.
The other element I love about this series is the suspense. Juliet has secrets that are discovered throughout the book. Someone from her past comes back to haunt her. I’m not sure what it is about romantic suspense that I like, but I really enjoy it. It works well this time around because Quinn is the sheriff so he’s very involved in what’s going on with Juliet’s past. I think the suspense and cowboy/rancher stories work well together too.
Okay, I’m ready for Dawn and Hawk to get together. I hope they’re next!
