Dillon Iron Feather is dangerous and he knows it. Hardened by his championship fighting career, he returns to his remote Colorado ranch to heal, only to discover that city girl Tessa Grove is determined to stake her claim to the old mine she inherited on a corner of his land. Stubborn to the bone, Tessa soon digs up precious gems from deep within the earth to use in her custom-made jewelry business. But those stones turn out to be sacred, and sparks fly as they begin to guide her to the secret chambers of Dillon's heart.
Iron Feather Brothers Series: Meet the Iron Feather Brothers—they’re tough, they’re dangerous, and family means everything to them. Whether it’s living up to their ancestor’s outlaw reputation or brandishing their own style of justice, these men have each other’s backs. And it takes very special women to get under their skin and untangle their barbed-wire hearts in order to find love in this contemporary western romance series set in the Rocky Mountains.
Reading this book was such an easy task. Instantly, I fell in love with Tessa and Dillon. They were both stubborn but yet at the same time they got along well. Ms. Reed does a great job of writing this story. She transported me to Colorado. Although, I must admit that it was not hard to imagine the location that this story took place in as I live in Colorado.
Another aspect of this story that I enjoyed a lot was the authenticity that Ms. Reed gave this story. It was like I was also getting a bit of a history lesson with Dillon and the great importance of turquoise to Native Americans.
Lastly, the romance. No "instalove" here. No, Dillon and Tessa got to know each other first before they shared any intimate moments together. So it felt more real when they did hook up. This is a good first book to this series. Which, I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
