The next day, a gunslinger shoots Clint in the back. He is taken to the boarding house where Mattie nurses him back to health. As she observes Clint, especially with her son, she realizes he is a caring person. They fall in love, but he still leaves on his vengeance quest, proving love is not enough for this couple unless he can come to his senses quickly.
With novels like DIME NOVEL HERO and MAIL-ORDER BRIDE, western romance fans know that a Maureen McKade novel is going to provide plenty of excitement and enjoyment. Her latest tale, OUTLAW BRIDE, is another triumph as the fragile love between a gunslinger and an anti-gun widow faces a high noon scenario. Readers will empathize with Mattie trying to keep her son safe while hoping that Clint allows love to heal his soul. This entertaining tale will speed up Ms. McKade's rapid ride to the top of the sub-genre.
Herman and Andy are fishing when they hear some shots - they investigate and find the gunslinger back shot. When Andy runs pellmell to Mattie and informs her of their find she sends for Sheriff Atwater and Dr. Kevin Murphy. He is courting Mattie.
One thing leads to another what with Beaudry running a fever and Mattie having to change his dressings and some weeks later spending a day fishing an attraction develops - mostly reawakened lust and emotions that neither wishes to acknowledge.
Clint Beaudry will make no promises until he catches his wife, Emily's killer and Mattie will not force any promises that cannot be kept.
Ah, the monkey wrench gets thrown into the mix when Clint leaves on his search for the rider of the palomino. Then Clint meets up with a bottle of whiskey and comes to a very big decision.
What a great story when Clint finally gives into Sheriff Atwater's request to hold down the fort as he heals.
Yup, you don't want to pass up this story - wonderful characters and great situations leading to a wonderful love story.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -- Whoops! Mattie demanded her night. And got it.
