I really enjoyed this book. It was about female bounty hunter in the 1800's. I lost the inside cover but not the outside cover. Its a good story.
I really enjoyed reading this book.
If one is lucky enough to have read one of Maggie Osborne's books, they want to read them all. This book is no exception. Some of Osborne's books I like better than others, but I am never disappointed with her work. This is no exception!
This is another great by this author. I love all her books. To bad she is not writing any longer.
An oldie (from my straight romance days) but a goodie. It's just time to set it free.
This was a really great book.
Disguised as a man, Samantha Kincade is a bounty hunter. Shes brought 134 fugitives in to the law, but she is looking for the big one Hannibal Cotwell. This man raped and murdered Samanthas mother, while she watched in horror. Next, he turned his gun on the boy lying on the floor.
Before long, Cotwells actions led the dissolution of Sams family and sent her into years of servitude with the local pastor and his wife. Biding her time, Sam eventually got the job she needed to pursue Cotwell a bounty hunter.
Cotwell has a younger brother with the same amber, tiger eyes Trace Harden crosses Samanthas path hes looking for Hannibal too. He has a letter from his dead wife Etta, swearing that Hannibal had raped her repeatedly while Trace was in New Orleans. Etta states that she could not live with the shame of carrying her rapists baby, so she hanged herself. Trace plans to kill his brother for his betrayal.
Samantha develops a plan to get Hannibal put his brother in jail on a trumped up charge, have a trial (her great-uncle will be judge) and sentence Trace to death by hanging. It is widely known that the only living person Hannibal cares about is Trace.
Trace reluctantly agrees with the plan because he wants Hannibal to come out of hiding too. Sam swears he wont hang. That promise leads to some extraordinary maneuvering to save Trace.
I really liked both main characters (Trace and Samantha) they were wounded warriors. Hannibal, who doesnt show up until the last 25 pages, is a huge presence. Over the course of the book, Trace tells about his childhood with Hannibal and it becomes clear why Hannibal turned against his fellow man. However, neither of the main characters condone Hannibals years of robbing, raping and murdering.
I read the book in one sitting because I simply couldnt put the book down. By the way, this is my second reading of this story; I knew what was going to happen. So why was I hanging on to every word? Maggie Osborne is a wonderful storyteller who keeps readers glued to the pages.
Yes It was a very good book, all Maggie Osborne's are
