Gideon Blackwood has watched his fellow Devils on Horseback find love. Each has a woman that matches their spirit, drive, determination and temperament. Gideon, however, has no room in his life for the matchmakers who want to make sure the last bachelor in the group is married off. A quick trip to escape the drama turns into anything but when Gideon meets Chloe Ruskin.
Chloe has a job to do. With the safety of her grandmother and two orphans in her hands, she doesn’t take that job lightly. Chloe isn’t sure about the big cowboy who wants to help her family get back on their way. Unfortunately, she has no choice but to take Gideon up on his offer of assistance.

When Chloe’s family goes missing, Gideon is determined to get them back and will not allow her suspicious nature to run him. Has Gideon finally found his match? Has Chloe found a man worth trusting?

Beth Williamson delivers a healthy dose of action, suspense, drama and love in Devils on Horseback – Gideon. The story is well laid out. The couple’s introduction leaves little doubt that Chloe is a woman of strength and determination and Gideon has finally found a woman who can make him lose that cool persona. Their passionate moments ignited the pages. As each fought to regain control of their hearts, it was already clear it was a battle that was not meant to be won.

There were a few moments that tugged at my heartstrings with the pain and suffering evident by the actions and tones of those around. But as always the Devils prove what family is and how it can pull you through the hardest of times.

Ms. Williamson created a wonderful series with a host of fantastic characters. I’ll definitely pick up more books from this author in the near future.
