This is the third book in The Rock Creek Six series and is Rico's story. Rico, or The Kid is the youngest of the six. He can't shoot worth beans but he's deadly with a knife. Of Mexican descent, he's also very dreamy looking and quite the ladies man.
The heroine Lily Fortier is able to resist his charms, for a while anyway. She's in Rock Creek as she won the local saloon, the one that a few of the remaining Rock Creek Six have been squatting in. Lily and her 'brother' are determined to make it a very high class saloon as she has an incredible singing voice. She's running away from a gambler who almost held her in slavery. But know she has a second chance.
Rico is smitten with her right from the start. Though she does hold him atbay for a while, his charm wins her over. She does have a rival though. Rico has a young adopted daughter, though in truth it was more like Carrie adopted Rico and doesn't want to share him. Some of her antics towards Lily are really quite funny.
Though Rico and Lily are falling in love with each other, Rico doesn't think he's good enough for her. He's known as The Kid by his friends and he feels that's what he is. But he's done quite a bit of growing up in the past couple of years.
I love both him and Lily, he has a Spanish background, she French. She's a few years older than him but the make it work between the two of them. Add Carrie and Johnny, Lily's brother and the four of them make for a wonderful family. Although I think this could be read as a stand alone, I'd still recommend reading the first two books. All of the other five and two wives play important roles and they are terrific books anyway. I've loved all three so far now.
