COWBOYS LEGACY is Flint and Maggie's story which is part
three of the Cahill
Ranch series. COWBOYS LEGACY is actually the first
book I've read in this new series by B.J. Daniels and
needless to say it whet my curiosity about the previous
stories but didn't intrude in enjoying this tale with its
seemingly endless twists and turns. I guess that is to be
expected when one of the leading characters is repeatedly
referred to as being unhinged. While diligently trying to be
the cheering squad for the characters that are falling in
love you can't help but cringe at the endless possibilities
for evil that surround them.
Flint and Maggie's story is truly a testament to love and
veracity. Can't think of a couple with more seemingly
impenetrable barriers to conquer. But they were meant to be
Maggie was the target, the object of interest of Celeste,
Flint's ex-wife who just wouldn't go quietly into the
night even though any remaining relationship with Flint was
only in her mind. She was cagey enough to avoid any evidence
pointing to her as the culprit when Maggie fell victim into
some rather unpleasant pranks. In truth, Maggie was fearful
of just what Celeste would do next. And it was that fear
that kept Maggie from moving ahead with anything remotely
looking permanent with Flint.
Celeste left Flint looking for greener richer pastures than
a sheriff could afford. But now she has an unhealthy
obsession with things Flint. And that's how Maggie wound up
with a target on her back. Maggie is in love and turns a
deaf ear on friends who advise her that Flint has too much
baggage. But doesn't everyone have their own baggage.
Maggie certainly feels as though hers is a detriment toward
a future with Flint.
Question is whether Celeste is the only thorn in Maggie and
Flint's budding relationship or is Maggie using that as an
excuse to not face her own issues.
So living in a small town makes it increasingly difficult to
stay away from the ex-wife. And as a result, Maggie's
problems are escalating.
B.J. Daniels has made COWBOYS LEGACY quite a nail-biting,
page-turner of a story. Guaranteed to keep you on your toes.
Nothing will stop a Cahill cowboy from protecting
After a rocky marriage and even rockier divorce, Sheriff
Flint Cahill finally has something good in his life again.
Maggie Thompson’s down-to-earth charm and beautiful smile
hooked him from the start. When she disappears on the day
they plan to start their lives together, all signs point to
abduction—and his ex-wife.
Functioning on adrenaline and instinct, Flint must call on
his every resource to bring Maggie home before it’s too
late. His past and future are blurred. Maggie’s only chance
at surviving her abductor and a raging winter storm depends
on an old vendetta that could destroy it all. But the
Cahills don’t give up easily, and Flint’s love will have to
be strong enough to conquer anything, including the

This is a trope I've not read before. I will now!
