Elizabeth sat up and just stared at Mitch wide-eyed, her face red from being half choked, tears leaving clean lines where they trickled through the dust on her face. Her ears rang from all the gunfire. Mitch scooped her into his arms as he rose and carried her down the middle of the street toward Ma Kelly’s. People stared and mumbled to each other about the new woman in town and how Mitch Brady had risked his life to save her … yet again.
Elizabeth laid her head on Mitch’s shoulder and sobbed. Mitch held her closer.
SHE'S A WOMAN WITH A SECRET
Elizabeth Wainright is on the run. Accused of a murder she didn't commit, she has no choice but to cut ties with her old life and flee West. The last thing she wants is attention, but when her stagecoach is attacked, she suddenly finds herself under the fierce protection of one of Montana's famed vigilantes ... whether she likes it or not ...
HE'S A MAN WITH A CODE
Lawman Mitch Brady is sworn to uphold justice in the wilds of Montana. He's never met a man he's feared, and he's never met a woman more desperately in need of his help. Something's shaken the secretive Elizabeth, but as he gets to know the beautiful city belle, he finds the only thing he wants more than her safety is her trust. - Elizabeth longs to give herself to Mitch, but when her past finally catches up with her, can she truly trust the vigilante who's stolen her heart ... with her life?"
DESPERATE HEARTS is set in 1880's Montana and is packed with "wild west" action, a good share of humor, and lots of romance!
Also, I just got publication dates from Sourcebooks for the reissue of my 1993 book OUTLAW HEARTS AND the sequel which I just completed, DO NOT FORSAKE ME! OUTLAW HEARTS will be on the shelves (and available for e-readers) in June 2015, with DO NOT FORSAKE ME immediately following in July 2015!
Jake Harkner is one of my all-time favorite heroes, and I'm happy that you'll be able to meet him in a brand-new edition of the first book, and follow his story in the sequel that I had wanted to write for 20 years! I am still having trouble leaving Jake, and there is more to the story -- so, I am hoping my publishers will go along with my idea for a third book. Needless to say, the Sourcebooks reprint and DO NOT FORSAKE ME will feature all-new covers, which I'll share as soon as I receive them.
