There is nothing more intriguing than an outlaw-‑especially if he is tall and devilishly handsome!
First there is Michael Hughes, caught trying to rob the rich and tricked into marrying the daughter to protect her and her ranch, as well as save his own hide.
Then there is gunfighter Johnny Bravo, hired to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a wealthy rancher but finding her sister dogging his trail, determined to deliver her own type of justice.
Next, there is Lawman Ethan Kimble, standing face-to-face with his childhood sweetheart, but at the wrong end of a rifle. Bringing the beautiful outlaw in suddenly isn't as important as discovering the truth behind her running.
And finally the desperado, Shadow Rivers, who finds himself helping a saucy young woman with a $1000.00 price on her head find justice while losing his heart.
What a delightfully, delicious combination of short stories! Anyone who is a fan of cowboys in small but sizzling doses will eat this delectable offering up! With only a couple of glitches (the weak relationship development in story #2 and the confusing epilogue in #3), each tale is paced to perfection with enough suspense to ruin one's nails mixed with enough romance to make the heart race and the reader sigh. Well done, ladies!
