At birth, Annabelle Garret was pledged to marry Gavin Leonard. When she learns of her fate on her twentieth birthday, she flees. Gavin is an evil man who secretly confesses her wish to do harm to both her and her little dog, Mr. Britches. Leaving Boston, she finds herself in a town called Sweetwater with no money and no family. Now stranded, she innocently accepts a job working in a brothel with a handsome man who begins to work his way into her heart.
Neville Hilliard owns The Globe saloon. His first glance at Annabelle tells him she is a lady of substance. Neville only knows her as Temperance, a name he gave her, but when he learns she is a missing heiress of the father he holds of high regard, he feels his prayers for money have been answered. There is one little problem, he hopes to win her heart more than her wealth. And with daddy dearest not too far behind, time is of the essence.
If You Only Dare is one stimulating read. Annabelle is one feisty woman with a good head on her shoulders. Neville is a charming guy who beams with charisma throughout the story. The addition of Mr. Britches is a dynamite mixture to the storyline. The secondary characters make the story flow smoothly. Ms. Reagan has done an incredible job in making a read that is completely satisfying until the last page. With passion along the way keeping the reader engaged with the antics of Annabelle and Neville, this is one awesome read.
