Ross MacDougal is half Indian and white and considered a half-breed. He has lived a life that no young man should have to live especially in the hands of his own father. Ross walks into town with his head held high and people squirming to get out of his way. There is a reason why they call him MacDougal Devil, but soon his temper will be known and hopefully he can let go of his anger. He loves Amelia but he can’t let anyone near his heart because of his shame that he believed he caused his family. In his eyes, he is only going to do one thing and that is get his wife pregnant.. All that changes when he finally realizes that he might have lost the most important thing in his life, his wife and child.
I loved the plot of the story with all the twist and turns of the love story. The way that she admired a handsome rugged man in her hotel room not knowing that she was actually looking at her husband. He walked the street with confidence. Amelia gained self-confidence in her self and did not feel like she needed to cover up her scars and learned how to overcome her fear. Gillis, Prudence's husband, was able to overcome his grief and find someone to be able to hold, but no matter what his love would always be Prudence. They are such a wonderful family that is so giving and willing to give anything and share everything.
I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a sensual erotic story of a romance brewing in the MD Ranch that will have you squirming for more. When you get a chance, read the first story of this series and see how the bride train started in this Montana Territory.
