In the opening pages, Holt McKettrick is waiting for the preacher to marry him and his mail-order bride, Margaret Tarquin. A rider comes up to the gathering, asking for Holt Cavanaugh. After Holt reads the letter from the rider, he immediately heads for his horse.
The McKettrick men stop Holt, reminding him about the guests and wedding. Holt offers to marry her but says he must leave immediately after the service; she refuses, turns to the guests and says there will be no wedding, but asks the guests to join her in a wonderful feast and dance.
Thus begins Holt's story. He must return to Texas to save one fellow Ranger from the gallows, find the Ranger who sent the note and save his volunteer-father, John Cavanaugh from ruin. This is a very satisfying story; the characters were complex and had a variety of motivations.
There are fights with Comanche's and dishonest land-grabbers as well as a judge who bends the law to his will. There's plenty of action and suspense.
The only disappointment was the very-quick Epilogue.
This is one of the most interesting series I've read. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others who like this genre.
