Library Journal Review
A dog to warm his feet in the winter is all Marco Mondragon, a rancher, widower, and official brand inspector for the Spanish colony of New Mexico, is looking for when he comes to Santa Fe on business. A fluffy yellow dog and a mistreated, blue-eyed orphan named Paloma cross his path, and suddenly his lonely life changes. VERDICT Admirable, appealing characters, an uncommon, little-used setting (1780s New Mexico), and realistic detail make this sweet historical a candidate for both Western and romance collections. Kelly (Her Hesitant Heart), noted for her award-winning traditional Regency romances, lives in Utah. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
