A Colorado beauty abandoned at the altar. A rugged bounty hunter haunted by his past. In this dramatic historical novel by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher, two wounded hearts join forces in a pursuit across the Old West.
Silver Matlock is a Colorado beauty in search of revenge against the man who stranded her at the altar and fled with the remnant of her family's fortune. She is determined to find the man who betrayed her trust.
Jared Newman, rugged as the West itself, is relentless in his pursuit of lawless men—but unable to escape his own tragic past. Hardened by his life as a bounty hunter, he must learn to forgive before he loses his soul.
Joining forces, the two set out in search of Silver's betrayer. The handsome but embittered Jared finds himself powerfully drawn to the beautiful woman whose drive for justice equals his own. But lack of honesty keeps Silver and Jared from fully trusting each other, even as a shocking revelation intensifies their pursuit of the cunning—and deadly—quarry.

- Review by Becky
Silvana (Silver) Matlock was left standing at the altar, but worse than that, her fiance stole her family's money and jewels leaving them unable to pay off their debts. She decides it is up to her to find her ex-fiance and get the money back. She hires bounty hunter Jared Newman and tags along for the journey.
Jared Newman hasn't always been a bounty hunter, but it is the best way for him to keep up his search for the man who took his family from him. As they close in on those they seek, Silver and Jared must learn that they must rely on someone other than themselves.
I read this book in less than a day. I thought I had the story figured out and then it took a twist I didn't expect! I liked Robin Lee Hatcher's style of writing and her characters were believable. The story is set in 1873 in the West. I have always liked books in this setting. The characters pray and have a relationship with God, there is also no physical contact and there isn't even kissing until almost the end of the book.
I would recommend this book for those who enjoy historical romances of a Christian/inspirational variety. (Posted on 5/7/14)
