Review: Colt is a gambler and gunfighter that is tired of his career. But it’s not one you can just walk away from. Not alive anyways. One day his playing poker a young man approaches him and shoots him. Colt gets shot o also and gets on his horse and leaves town. He ends up at Amelia’s where she is raising her younger brother and sister after her mother and father were killed.
This story reminded me a lot of a Hallmark movie. There was the basic story line of the young woman raising children on her own, the gunfighter turning up on her land and they form a bond. I loved all the characters. I loved the conflict in Colt wanting to love Amelia and put his past behind him but knowing he is dangerous to her and the kids. I loved Saul the younger brother that wants to be infamous and revenge his mother and fathers deaths. I loved Amelia and her resolve in taking care of her younger siblings and the wounded stranger. Of course who wouldn’t love poor Jenny?
I found this story riveting and breathtaking form the action to the sex
Recommendations: I highly recommend this story to anyone that likes longer stories full of action and romance, especially if you like old west westerns, gunfighters, true love, and hot sex this one is for you!
