The Bounty Hunter's Redemption

GIVEAWAY

DEAN, JANET
THE BOUNTY HUNTER'S REDEMPTION

Staking his claim 

Recently widowed Carly Richards is shocked when a bounty hunter declares her seamstress shop belongs to his sister. But Nate Sergeant has proof—the deed her lawless husband gambled away without her knowledge. Now Carly must fight for her home and her son's future. And until a judge arrives to settle ownership, she's not budging…despite Nate's surprisingly kind demeanor—and dashing good looks.

Nate's faced the meanest outlaws in the land—but this petite, strong-willed seamstress may be his greatest challenge. He owes his sister his life, so he's determined she'll have the property that's legally hers. But as Nate and Carly battle for ownership, Nate realizes there's something he's overlooked—the hope of building a family with Carly and her adorable son.

My Review:

I'm a sucker for an attention-grabbing opening sentence so when I read "A woman should mourn the loss of her husband." a chill of anticipation shot right down my spine. Those nine innocuous words strung together had the power to light my imagination on fire. I immediately wanted to know this woman and the painful history that somber statement hints at. In short -- I was hooked.

Carly is a "female tinderbox" (Nate's words, not mine and don't they paint a vivid picture?). She is prickly -- especially where Nate is concerned. These two are at cross purposes from the get go. The ownership of the seamstress shop is a tangled legal mess that doesn't bode well for a burgeoning romance which makes the tender moments all the more appealing.

There's plenty of strife, a hint of danger and a wonderful cast of secondary characters who strive to help set things right. In fact, the innocent faith of a young boy goes a long way towards bringing Nate and Carly together for good. A touching story of redemption and second chances.
