Trail of Kisses

Trail of Kisses - Merry Farmer Trail of Kisses (Hot on the Trail #1)by Merry Farmer

Someone is trying to kill Lynne Tremaine. After her father sentences two members of The Briscoe Boys gang to death, Judge Tremaine feels he has no choice but to send Lynne to Denver City along the Oregon Trail to live with her Uncle George…against her will. For Lynne, the only thing worse than being sent away to the wild west is making the journey with the handsome, arrogant, wicked man her uncle has hired to escort her. Especially when the anger she feels toward him begins to turn to something hotter.
Cade Lawson is determined to prove himself to his employer, George Tremaine, after letting him down months earlier. But what he thought would be his second chance may, in fact, be a harsh punishment for his past mistakes. Lynne is headstrong, fiery, and determined to show him she is fearless. She is also beautiful and tempting, and when Cade sees just how afraid she really is underneath her brave act, he may be in danger of losing his heart to her forever. When her would-be killer attacks, it’s all he can do to keep Lynne safe.
He swore to protect her, but who will protect him from her?

My Review:
This is one of those examples of 'you can run but you can't hide' in romance. You can run away or be sent away but regardless of where you go your troubles are going to follow you wherever you end up.
Cade Lawson had a sort of John Wayne swagger and appeal while Lynn had more of a Scarlett O'hara
kind of thing going so there was a bit of friction until we (the readers) got a better sense of who she is and how well the tension between her and Cade suit their opposites attract coupling. I enjoyed the clashing personalities because it provided plenty of amusement from page to page. I do have to admit how impressed I am that Miss Farmer allows Lynn to be the advancer than the advanced which makes for a sexy scene between our couple.
I wish it hadn't been so short because it made everything happen so quickly and ended way too soon. However I enjoyed the story and it will fit well into any busy ladies day.
