Product Description

Product Description

Love is better the second time around . . .

With a bad marriage behind her and the note on her horse ranch coming due, young widow Katherine Logan has neither the time nor the inclination to save a low-down bandit, until the sight of wickedly tempting Jake Banner changes her mind.

Taking advantage of a local custom, she saves him from the hangman's noose, but Jake's secrets run deeper than the crime that put him there.

Though the War Between the States is over, the tension in Missouri still runs high. Former Confederate soldiers have banded together to form outlaw gangs--robbing trains, stages and banks. Second Chance, Missouri is right in the center of all the action. Jake and Katherine find themselves drawn into the wildness of the west and the temptation of each other.

Synopsis

Struggling with a bad marriage and foreclosure on her horse ranch, young widow Katherine Logan has neither time nor inclination to take responsibility for some low-down bandit, until the sight of wickedly tempting Jake Banner changes her mind. Original.

I searched out LH books after reading the rock creek series and this one's delightful. Western post civil war era with Pinkerton agent undercover and gun toting female ranch owner and enough bad guys to go around. Jake, our hero, and Katie, our heroine, are meant for each other. Both are strong characters with integrity and grit set with enough civil war background to keep me happy! Enjoy........

I really enjoyed this book. I caught myself holding my breath multiple times. If you enjoy historical cowboy-type romance novels then you should definately read this book.

I paid for this book because I was so very impressed with the author's books in The Rock Creek Six series. Although I was a little disappointed in this story in comparison, it still had a lot to offer if you like this genre; good guys, bad guys, shoot outs, bank robberies, a heroine in need, a rugged cowboy to save her, and of course and most importantly a HEA.

Katherine Logan saves Jake Banner from hanging and offers him a job at her ranch. Stopping the hanging brings further resentment to her from the town people and she discovers that her foreman is resentful also; he has desired Katherine and the ranch since her husband's death. Jake was a member of the Coltrain gang; in actuality, he is Jake Parker, a Pinkerton who has infiltrated the gang in hopes of discovering the contact who is supplying Charlie Coltrain with information on money shipments. Jake knows that he must leave the ranch and return to the gang but he hesitates leaving Katherine, especially after he sees the danger that he has placed her in by her saving his life, plus he has started to have feelings other than gratitude toward her. Katherine feels safe with Jake there and she feels an attraction for him that disturbs her, especially since he is known to have traveled with an outlaw gang. This book is a prelude of sorts to "Charlie and the Angel", which continues the story of Charlie Coltrain. I heartily recommend "Charlie and the Angel"; it is one of the best western novels that I have read.
