***Loving the Lawman, book 3***

Is she a dead ringer…or a dead woman walking?

When U.S. Deputy Marshal Sam Dunaway arrives in Kenton Valley, Texas, for a murder trial, the last thing he expects is to run into his late wife Celine. The one who supposedly died in a boarding house fire shortly after she ran off with his life savings.

Despite her Plain Jane disguise, Sam isn’t fooled. As soon as his business with the trial is finished, the woman who broke his heart will pay.

Three years ago, Celine had good reason to use Sam’s money to go into hiding–and it’s a secret she must still keep, even if it means certain arrest and imprisonment. Because coming clean risks crushing rejection.
In spite of themselves, the embers of love roar into a passionate inferno, leaving Sam with a hell of a choice. To stick to his principles…or follow his heart.Warning: This story contains a woman with a sewing basket full of secrets, and a highly pissed-off U.S. Marshal who wants her dead or alive–though alive is better. Just sayin’.

MASTERING THE MARSHALL by Marie-Nicole Ryan is an interesting and intriguing Western Historical Romance. #3 in the “Loving the Lawman”, but can be read as a stand. This is my first time reading this author, and I thoughly enjoyed this story. Well written, with endearing and engaging characters. The storyline was unique, the plot well thought out and executed, with a well blended amount of romance, suspense,passion, secrets, and love. A joy to read and one, I strongly recommend! An enjoyable and satisfying read.  I enjoyed how the H/H learned to compromise, to keep their love alive, even though lies, deceit, danger and their very survival. I look forward to the Lawman’s next grand adventure.  Well done!
