Steel Resolve by B.J. Daniels


Sometimes you can go home again
It’s just not always safe…

Mary Cardwell Savage never meant to send that letter to her ex, Chase Steele. How could she know her words would bring the gorgeous cowboy back to Big Sky, Montana—with an unstable and dangerous stalker following close behind? Now Chase wants to prove that their love deserves a second chance. And this time, nothing will keep him from his heart’s desire…not even a killer.


I have been reading Harlequin for many years, so when I had a chance to try a Harlequin Intrigue with a hot cowboy on the cover, I couldn’t pass it up.

Oh, he didn’t know sorry, but he would soon enough. He would rue this day. And if he thought he’d seen the last of her, he was in for a surprise. That Montana hayseed would have Chase over her dead body.

Chase’s drunken one-night stand with Fiona was a big mistake and he tried to let her down easily; however, she wouldn’t take no for an answer. When she finds out he is going back home to the woman he loved, she isn’t going to let him forget her that easily. How far would she go to get him back?

The story is told in many points of view. Chase and Mary are the main romantic characters. Fiona is the jilted and crazy lover, who has an evil agenda, and Dillon is the unlikeable deputy sheriff with a secret.

The tone is romantic with darkness and suspense slowly building to the finale. A great start to the Cardwell Ranch series.

Thank you to Ms. Daniels, Harlequin and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.
