I really enjoyed Dakota and Beckett’s sweet love story in Wanted by the Marshall by Susan Lute, book two in her Angel Point series. U.S. Marshall Dakota James is heading to Angel Point to make sure her sister isn’t making a mistake getting married, like their parents did. Not only was her sister, Taylor, not listening to Dakota but she intended to introduce every single man in Angel Point to her. Only one man, a former marine, set her blood a-boiling. Beckett Leland came to Angel Point to check on his cousin’s widow and two young boys and found a place where he and his retired military dog, Tucker could easily make the transition to civilian life. Running into a fiery, passionate woman who doesn’t believe in love and happy ending was not part of his plans. He needs more than friendship from the marshal, who has captured his heart. Before he can convince Dakota that true love and happiness awaits her she needs to comes to terms with her relationship with her parents and their divorce. Ms. Lute wrote a wonderful, sweet and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with chemistry, amusing conversations, and charming secondary characters giving Dakota and Leland a chance for a future together. I highly recommend Wanted by the Marshall to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I loved book one in the series, and this one was just as good. That said, for those that have not read book 1 , rest assured that this is a stand alone. Our main characters are Marshal Dakota James and Beckett Leland. Beckett is a former Marine pilot who originally went to Angel Point to check up on his deceased cousin’s family, and became so enchanted by the town and it’s inhabitants, that he is now ready to settle down in town with his retired military dog and start a rescue center for retired military dogs. Dakota is a stubborn, fiesty woman whose childhood hurts has defined her as an adult, and whose life (professional and personal) is currently out of control. While she doesn’t believe in love, Beckett is not a one night stand guy, but rather one who believes in love , one that lasts forever. The story was engaging from the start with characters perfect in their imperfections. A story that reminds the reader that those experiences we have as a child, will deeply affect the individual as an adult. I can’t wait to see what else this author has for us in her next book. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Tule Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
This author is new to me and I am not disappointed at all. I love small town romances and this book was spot on. Yes the book was predictable, but hang in there it was totally worth it. I loved everything about this book. I loved how Dakota was strong, independent and stubborn, but she met her match with both Beckett and her sister Taylor. Taylor killed me I did not read her story but she's a pistol and has no problem telling people how its going to be. I really liked Claud and Betty oh my what a sweet couple. If you are looking a good clean read with a story that will get to your heart this is the story for you. I so enjoyed this fun read and can't wait for more from the town of Angel Point. I received an advance copy from the publisher. I was under no obligation to post a review and have given my honest opinion
