From the Back Cover: A jilted bride desperate to save her family from ruin.
A bounty hunter seeking vengeance for a ravaged past.
An arduous trek toward justice–or redemption.
Silver Matlock and Jared Newman know traveling together is a bad idea. Bad for Silver’s already tarnished reputation in her small Colorado town. Bad for bounty hunter Jared’s secret, single-minded mission for revenge. But Silver is determined to track down the rogue who left her at the altar and stole the last remnant of her father’s fortune. And Jared’s in a hurry to hunt down the murderer who destroyed his family–even if Silver is too distractingly beautiful for comfort.
The pair takes off over mountain and desert, past bleak homesteads and raw mining towns, hot on the trail of the two villains who took what wasn’t theirs to take. Soon supplies dwindle, secrets emerge, and suspicion leave Silver and Jared at odds when they need each other most. To confront an enemy deadlier than desert rattlesnakes and rocky cliffs, Silver and Jared must learn to forgive and trust and face the question they haven’t dared voice: What happens next?
Robin Lee Hatcher never fails to deliver a great story that we know in advance that when we sit down to read it we are just going to enjoy ourselves immensely. Both Silver and Jared want vengeance for different reasons from the same man and, together, they are tracking this man across the West. Both of them are emotionally wounded individuals who are filled with hurt and anger and they are going to have to come to terms with this before God so that He can heal them and they can have a healthy future. It is getting to that point that puts all the fun and excitement in the story. A jilted bride, a bounty hunter, danger, mysteries, and surprises are just some of the ingredients that Ms. Hatcher has incorporated into this book. On top of everything there is a romance. Ms. Hatcher has given us characters that are marvelous, meticulously crafted, and each one literally breathes on the pages. Robin Lee Hatcher has written a well done novel that I liked a lot. I hope there will be a sequel.
