THE BOUNTY HUNTER'S BABY
Brought together by a baby
Bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort has no problem handling outlaws, but when he's left with a criminal's baby to care for, he's in over his head. And the only person he can think of to ask for help is Esther Jensen, the woman whose heart he broke when he left town. But can he convince her to put aside the past until he tracks down the baby's outlaw father?
Esther is ready to run Thomas off her Texas ranch -- until she spies the abandoned newborn in his arms. Soon, working together to care for the precious babe stirs old hopes of a family. With trouble heading to their door, they could overcome it together -- if she'll entrust her wary heart to this sweet, second-chance family...
I think that Erica Vetsch is really a pseudonym for a tough-as-nail cowpoke who roams the wild west. The truth leaks out in her ability to infuse cowboy colloquialisms into her stories. I swear I read the whole book with a Texas twang! And she has created the perfect cowboy hero, Thomas Beaufort. Bounty hunter extraordinaire who doesn't flinch at tracking down a murderer but can't get the best of one small nanny goat. A man devoted to his dog appropriately named after a famous Texas Ranger. Bested by a tiny scrap of humanity, he seeks aid from his former sweetheart. Be still my cowboy lovin' heart.
Of course Esther isn't as easily impressed. She's a heartbroken woman who has fallen on hard times and the last person she needs back in her life is the man who broke her heart in the first place. But she can't help falling in love with the orphaned baby he brings to her door. I spent my reading hours alternately laughing and swooning as these two lock horns. And there's the thrill of some good old-fashioned wild west action as well. A sweet perfection of a read.
