"An engaging Western romance"
Legendary bounty hunter Jack Skull arrives in Abilene
seeking a serial killer stalking women in the area. To
Anne Ross, Jack is the MAN, as he seems so exciting. Anne
especially notices the way people healthily avoid Jack and
that when he forces interaction, most people are
uncomfortable around him until they can safely get away
from him. Knowing that failed marriages run throughout her
family and she doesn't want to add to the family legacy,
Anne believes he can keep her from marrying someone she
refuses to spend her life with.
Jack has enough on his plate tracking the murderer who has
killed young ladies all over the state. He has no time
for this innocent Miss, but also feels he needs to keep the
feisty Anne safe from his prey as she fits the victims'
profile. However, insuring her safety from a killer seems
mild compared to keeping her protected from himself.
This is an engaging Western romance that stars two
delightful lead protagonists who the audience will
cherish. Jack is an intriguing hero who believes he has
crossed the line too often for Anne to love him. Anne is
an intrepid individual who loves deeply but does not trust
in forever. Though the final emergency seems improbable,
readers will relish this charming story.
