"a soulful tale about love, loyalty and friendships that last a lifetime."
U.S. Marshal Kaedon Turner tries to save an impulsive
marshal and two Choctaw children from Fallon and his band
of cutthroats, but he's captured and beaten within an inch
of his life before a war party of Choctaw Indian's rescue
him. They deliver him to Jessica Monroe or Fire Eyes as the
Choctaws have named her.
Jessica Monroe lost her husband to Fallon's Brigade and
realizes what torture Kaed has endured. She's determined to
save him, caring for him day and night, while she also
cares for her adopted baby girl. An immediate attraction
grows between the two. Jessica fears the lawman may break
her heart for she knows that he must leave her once he's
well enough to ride again.
Kaed never thought he'd fall for the beautiful woman with
the gentle touch, but he must leave her and go after
Fallon. He learns from his fellow Territorial Peace
Officers that Fallon has captured two more girls and he is
determined to find them before it's too late.
Fire Eyes is a wonderful story full of characters
you'll love and those you'll hate. Jessica and Kaed's
destined love for each other will warm your heart, making
you wish for a happily-ever-after for them. Fallon and his
Brigade are vicious in every respect and you can't help but
hope they get what they deserve. I found the secondary
story with Lilly and Tori heart wrenching as they cling to
each other and pray that they can escape from Fallon's
clutches. Kaed's fellow marshals were also a wonderful
addition to the story, as the author portrays how their
friendship and loyalty shape their lives. I have to say
that Frank Hayes, who is young and still learning the
ropes, is my favorite marshal.
Ms. Pierson has created a soulful tale about love, loyalty
and friendships that last a lifetime. For those who like a
bit of the paranormal in their story, there's a touching
moment that is sure to make you smile.
