For Years They’ve Been Nomads for Justice, but a Final Mission May Just Lead Their Hearts Home.

Members of the legendary Hanger’s Horsemen, Mark Wallace and Jonah Brooks arrive in Llano County, Texas, to deliver a steed, never expecting they’d help deliver a baby as well. Left with an infant to care for, they head to a nearby foundling home, where Mark encounters the woman he nearly married a decade ago.

After failing at love, Katherine Palmer has dedicated her life to caring for children, teaming up with Eliza Southerland to start Harmony House. Eliza understands the pain of not fitting society’s mold, being illegitimate and of mixed ancestry. Yet those are the very attributes that lead her to minister to outcast children. The taciturn Jonah intrigues her by defying all her stereotypes of men, but there are secrets behind his eyes–ghosts from wars past and others still being waged.

When the Horsemen hear rumors of missing children, they stay to investigate, sticking close to Harmony House and its beautiful owners. As they work together to uncover the truth, love and danger grow hand in hand until a final sinister scheme threatens to destroy them all.

My thoughts:

I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this book since it had actually four main characters (two couples) but I should never had doubted Karen. I so enjoyed both couple’s journey as they found love. If I had to choose though, I think I enjoyed Jonah and Eliza’s story the best because Eliza was so contrary.

The mystery that is unraveled in this book is interesting as well, although, I had a good Idea who was behind the missing children pretty early on.

Karen is also wonderful had writing tense and action paced final scenes and this book has them.

If you like historical romances with a western flare I am sure you will enjoy this one.
