He’s fought through ruthless outlaws and injury. But with her, he’s tempted to surrender.
Haunted by the horrors of war, ex-cavalry officer Matthew Hanger leads a band of mercenaries known as Hanger’s Horsemen who have become legends in 1890s Texas. They defend the innocent and obtain justice for the oppressed. But when a rustler’s bullet leaves one of them at death’s door, they’re the ones in need of saving.
Dr. Josephine Burkett is used to men taking one look at her skirts and discounting her medical skills. What she’s not used to is having a man change his mind in a heartbeat and offer to assist her in surgery. Matthew’s dedication to his friend during recovery earns Josephine’s respect, and when her brother is abducted, he becomes her only hope for rescue.
When plans go awry and Josephine is caught in the crossfire, Matthew may have to sacrifice everything–even his team–to save her.
I am definitely a Karen Witemeyer fan. I love the way she weaves romance and a strong faith element into her stories.
This book did take me a bit longer to really get into. It was at the about the 50% mark that I found myself hooked and wondering what was going to happen next. And she didn’t cease to keep me guessing.
Josie was a strong character but someone who also was willing to explore her feelings. Matt was a true hero, who you knew would come through.
I am very excited for this series and the next book to come out!
