When Lachlan McCoughney finds out his sister and husband are dead and that they left behind a baby girl, he is hell bent on getting to his niece thinking she is in some slum pit with the Sheffield’s., his sister’s in-laws. But what he finds instead is a prosperous ranch with one sexy cowboy running it all. Holden Sheffield is sexy, sweet and one of a kind cowboy. But before they can take their attraction to another level, they will have to figure out how to solve their issues between their respective families and they just might get their own happy ever after.

Whoa nelly, was this book one wild ride from start to finish. B.A. Tortuga delivers a heartfelt story that grabs you by the throat and gives you a rollercoaster of a ride from start to finish. Author B.A. Tortuga delivers a wonderful story full of amazingly life-like characters, a story that steals your heart and a heartfelt relationship that will make your heart melt.

Meet Lachlan and Holden. Two of the unlikeliest of people to be attracted to one another but when Lachlan meets Holden for the first time, well sparks fly, tempers flare and fists start swinging. But you got to admit, these two just work for me as a couple. After the initial bruising introduction, the author gets right to the heart of these two characters and we get to see their sorrow, anger however misplaced and the love they have for this little girl, no parentless. With the right amount of alpha maleness and tenderness, the author creates a story filled with some of the most wonderful of characters and that right there made me fall in love with TRIAL BY FIRE. These characters just make the story so delightful, with some secondary characters just flying off the pages and giving t he reader a glimpse into the world of Holden and Lachlan.

TRIAL BY FIRE is a story of heartaches and loss, love and redemption and overall, acceptance over what has happened. With each page, I was flipping the pages in order to see what happens next for Holden and Lachlan and with a twist I didn’t see coming toward the end, well, lets just say the reader better buckle up, it’s about to get bumpy. TRIAL BY FIRE is a wonderful story that you will fall in love with and if this is your first taste of this author’s work, this by far one of the best written stories I have ever read. I look forward to seeing where this author goes in the future as I pursue their backlist for more gems to enjoy.
