BOOK REVIEW-WYOMING BOLD by Diana Palmer
Former border agent Dalton Kirk thought his life was over—literally—when a gang of smugglers left him for dead. Defying all odds, he survives his ordeal and returns to his Wyoming ranch ready to dedicate his future to a more peaceful home on the range. Until lovely Merissa Baker knocks on his door.
Merissa is well aware of her reputation as the local eccentric—she knows things before they happen—and she's had a vision that Dalton is in danger. Even though her beliefs clash with Dalton's cowboy logic, she's determined to save the handsome rancher she's secretly loved forever.
Visions? It's all ridiculous to Dalton…until things start happening that prove Merissa right. And now Dalton is not the only target—so is Merissa. Can Dalton be bold enough to trust the unknown? Is this Wyoming man ready to love? AMAZON 4 STARS
Good main characters and supporting characters as well. The story starts out in a quirky but interesting way. Both Merissa and her mother, Clara are not the usual people, in fact they are considered by many to be outcasts. They aren't dangerous just so different from what most people consider the norm. They each have a form of second sight which freaks people out. Those that don't ridicule them that is. Merissa is such a tender-hearted woman, who has been through quite a lot. Her father who disappeared from her life years ago was one of the troubles. He terrorized both Merissa and her mother before he left. He was also physically abusive to Clara.
Dalton or Tank as he is affectionately called, falls under her spell pretty quickly. It was sweet to watch. He was tough but as caring to those he cared about. And Merissa and her mother came into that category. I liked that he was so kind to Clara as well. He quickly considered them both his girls and he was really protective of them, as much as they would allow. The other members of his family added a lot to the story as well as other people to come to help.
Merissa came to warn Tank of danger coming for him and it sure comes in more than one direction.
The story has great twists and turns and surprises.
