East meets west when a high-principled Boston socialite teams up with a revenge driven bounty hunter to catch a gang of outlaws in the wilds of Nevada. It's tough being a witness when the last one turned up dead. But Christie Wallace is determined to bring the Everett gang to justice. Unfortunately, the law can't protect her from pistol-toting outlaws or the intoxicating lure of a dangerous man. But, after escaping the suffocating prospects of an arranged marriage, she has no intention of allowing her heart to rule her head, even when temptation comes in the form of an incorrigible lawman named Nat Randall. Dead or alive - it made no difference to Nat Randall. He's tried to bring the Everett gang to trial once before, but the law let him down. It seems frontier justice is all he has left. But he didn't count on protecting a bewitching Easterner whose courageous spirit challenges him as much as her beauty distracts. It's not long before he's torn between pursuing her or the outlaws. A timeless, rollicking adventure of unlikely lovers, set in the Wild West.
Angela’s Review:I was captivated by Ms. Donnelly’s tale set in the Wild West. It was an exciting storyline, as well as action-filled!
Even though it more than obvious at the beginning, that Nat Randall and Nathan Cavanaugh were one in the same, it did not deter from making this story a page-turner. If anything, it only piqued my interest.
I absolutely loved the fun and unique phrases used by the antagonist. It had me laughing aloud several times. Two of my favorites: He’s hornier than a three-pecked Billy goat and I’m drier than a fart in a windstorm!
The hero was everything I love in a cowboy. He was rough, rugged and rogue! Christie was the typical heroine. She had a stubborn streak a mile long, was outspoken, but she had a heart. Watching this pair evolve throughout the story was enjoyable and I look forward to reading more from this author.
