Outlaw.Preacher. Night Hawk. He's had many names, but he can't escape the past.
Since Ian Vance's beloved wife was murdered years ago, the hardened bounty hunter knows he'll never feel love or tenderness again, so he's made it his mission to ensure others get their justice. But when he's charged with delivering a sharp-eyed beauty to the law, Ian can't help but feel he may still have something left to lose.
Orphaned at twelve, Maggie Freeman has always found her way out of trouble. But now there's a vigilante mob at her back who would like nothing more than to see her hang for a crime she didn't commit. Maggie may have to accept help for the first time in her life . . . even if it's from the one man standing between her and freedom.
As the past closes in, the sassy prisoner and toughened lawman may just find a passion between them that could bring blinding happiness . . . if they'll let it.
Ms. Jenkins hits me once again with a huge helping of romance mixed with history. Not just African American, but this time she also threw in some Chinese American, and Native American, too. I hope I never get tired of reading her books because I sure would miss all the education I gain from her.
Maggie had me laughing and admiring her resilience and spunk after the hard life she’d lived. I fell in love with Preacher, aka Ian, aka Night Hawk, aka Delicious (that’s mine). What’s not to love about a hot man (did you see the cover?) who used to be a bad boy outlaw and reformed into a catch the bad guys bounty hunter and deputy Marshall. Now that’s a man.
I give this book five out of five shotgun shaped chocolate bars.
I purchased this book from Amazon.
