"Exciting western romance"

Brady Young killed his own father, but made sure that Wade Mason went to the Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville for the dastardly crime. While in prison, Wade impregnates a hooker, who died but not before she gave birth to his son. Wade manages to escape with his plan to find his son and clear his name.

Callie Quinn promised Lily that she would raise little Matthew as if she was the biological mother. However, everything changes when the infant's father shows up demanding she hand over his son. Callie refuses, as she is willing to die to keep her beloved three-month-old charge safe from the filthy, leg locked dangerously looking father. In spite of that auspicious beginning Wade and Callie begin to fall in love and shockingly she believes his claim of innocence. Now all they have to do is find proof that Brady is the killer.

The sequel to WALKER'S WIDOW, CALLIE'S CONVICT, is an exciting western romance that stars two strong lead protagonists. Both hero and heroine place the interest of Matthew ahead of their own needs, but at the same time readers feel the fear that Callie and Wade share of losing the baby to the other. The exciting story line focuses on the characters, as the heroine works to prove her beloved is not a killer over his objections, as he fears for her safety. Heidi Betts has given reader a sure bet to provide hours of solid romantic entertainment.

Wade Mason had been to Hell--and escaped. Shackled in iron manacles, the fleeing inmate traveled to Purgatory to claim his newborn son. He arrived at Callie Quinn's house ready to do battle. But the beautiful angel who guarded his child stripped him defenseless by plopping the crying bundle of joy straight into his unsuspecting arms. Then just as surely as she'd released him from his chains, Callie freed his heart. And Wade knew he'd found Heaven in her embrace.

When the intimidating outlaw showed up on her doorstep, Callie vowed she would fight tooth and nail to protect the infant entrusted to her. After all, what did a hardened felon know about babies? But one heated kiss told Callie that Wade understood all about tender care. And soon she realized he might be the convict, but she was prisoner to his touch, to his his love.
