From the Back Cover: “God had planted Creed Walker in her life…and He wouldn’t let her lose him.”
The three wily and beautiful McDougal sisters can swindle a man faster than it takes to lasso a calf. But their luck is running out, and they’re about to be hauled off to jail. When the wagon carrying them falls under attack, each sister is picked up by a different man.
Anne-Marie, the middle sister, is saved by Creed Walker, a Crow warrior. It’s loathing at first sight, but with bandits on their tail and a cache of gold to hide, Creed and Anne-Marie need each other. Will they learn to put aside their differences and trust each other–and God? And can their growing faith turn their lives around?
This is book two in the series however the good news is that you can read this story apart from the other two and it will be okay. However I do recommend that you read the other two just for the sheer enjoyment of them. Three sisters, who are con artists, are finally arrested and in a prison wagon dressed as nuns when the wagon is attacked by Indians. At the sound of the attack three men gallop to the rescue and each man takes a different sister. This time the focus is on Anne-Marie. Seems her rescuer, Creed, is the strong silent type. When they do go to a town they are imprisoned and sentenced to be hung at dawn. They do escape but with the gold. There is adventure after adventure that will keep you flipping pages trying to find out what happens next and why. Historical fiction that takes place during The Civil War. And did I mention that this is a romance? I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
