Saddled Hearts (The White Rune) by Jan Sikes recounts the heartfelt romance between Colt Layne and Sage Coventry. Colt is perplexed when Jeremiah Tompkins appears with a claim that his grandfather gambled the ranch away. Determined to save the property, he consults a psychic adviser named Sage, who receives a genuine message from the spirit of Buck Layne. Her warm nature prompts Colt to ask Sage out on a date. An arson attack soon results in Colt being framed for the murder of Jeremiah Tompkins. Is the answer to the riddle hidden in the pages of Buck Layne’s journals? Sage and Colt commence on a race against time and constant acts of sabotage. Could the perpetrator be closer than they expect?
Saddled Hearts (The White Rune) by Jan Sikes combined a wonderful love story with page-turning suspense. The character of Colt was admirable, and I applauded his desire to save horses. Colt was so evidently the rightful heir and the best candidate to run Layne Horse Sanctuary that I was as shocked as the characters when the lawless vandalism continued. I shuddered when the characters were placed in danger, and searched the pages for clues to the identity of the suspect. The cleverly written narrative kept me guessing until the end, but I was sure of one thing – Sage and Colt belonged together! Every paragraph I read charmed me and did not disappoint. I loved the horses, enjoyed the passion, and felt satisfied to see justice done. The book provided a rewarding afternoon of reading that combined mystery and romance.
