I have a very lovely romantic story set back in the western days to share with you called The Heart's Pursuit written by Robin Lee Hatcher.
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?My thoughts:
This was truly a good shoot them up kind of cowboy story with some romance thrown in for good measure. I have always been a sucker for the cowboys and the shoot outs and this one has both!
There is plenty of action all around when Silver and Jared team up to hunt down the same men for different reasons and along the way they pick up a third person who seeks revenge as well.
It's a really good story plot that will keep you glued to the book until the end. It's an ending that you always expect from Robin Hatcher and she doesn't disappoint us in this book either.
