    However, Eliza's Aunt Vi arranges, over her niece's objections, to have a Pinkerton Agent accompany her. Though Case Brogan originally wanted to tell his boss Assistant Chief Riley no but he quickly jumps on escort duty when he learns the identity of the accused male in Wyoming. Francis Caroni killed Case's father. As both have their own agenda in wanting to find Caroni, Case and Eliza fall in love, but relationships require trust and neither established that key element from the start.

    BELOVED PROTECTOR is an exciting western detective romance that readers who enjoy historical tales will relish. The story line expertly merges the two genres into a taut plot in which the lead characters and several secondary cast members enhance the flow of the tale with their actions. Readers will enjoy this Americana sleuthing romance and seek previous works by talented Linda O'Brien.
