Disguised as a man, Ella Brown rode into the small Idaho town with the body of a wanted man over her mule. She and her Bounty Hunter brother had hunted the man. But now her brother was dead. As his last request, he asked her to collect the reward, and find a man named Tigger Grandy who was supposed to purchase land in her brother's name. John Snow is also looking for Tigger Grandy. But his reason for finding Tigger it to kill him. Tigger was responsible for the death of John's fiancee and John is seeking vengeance. He's looking for a bounty hunter to help him out.
John soon discovers Ella's secret. He also discovers that she is looking for the same man as he is. They travel together through small mining towns, searching for the man who could help Ella fulfill her brother's dreams, or give John the peace he craves.
This was a very interesting historical romance. Although Ella tries to lose John at the beginning of their journey, she soon comes to think of him as a friend. When she is accused of murder, John does everything in his power to help her. The actual trial was very amusing. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
SHE'S FEISTY, I ENJOYED HER SPIRIT. HE'S TOO COOL, BUT HAS ENJOYABLE CHARACTERISTICS.
LOTS OF ACTION. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDABLE.
The book is about:
When Ella Brown rode into Idaho mining town, she had a dead outlaw slung over her pack mule. With her buckskin trousers, hat pulled low, and mannish ways, even the sheriff who handed her reward money didnt know she was a lady. Later, in a hotel, she saw in the mirror what she really was - a young woman with no one left to love or to love her. But that night John Snow broke into her room. His face was hard, his eyes were mocking, and his mood was black. He had come looking for a bounty hunter. Instead he came face-to-face with the woman who would be his destiny. Her beauty reminded him of a life long past, a time long gone, when he was not a gunslinger. Ella's instinct told her that John Snow's passion could set free the femininity she'd hidden so well - if she dared to ride beside a man bent on vengeance, whose soul only her love could save.
