ABOUT THE BOOK



They took away everything she loved...now, she’s out for revenge.



Sage Morrow had it all: life on a beautiful Colorado ranch, a husband who adored her, and a baby on the way. Until five ruthless gunmen rode up to their ranch and changed her life forever. Now Sage is a bounty hunter bent on retribution.



Accompanied only by her majestic hawk, she travels throughout the Rocky Mountains in search of injustice, determined to stamp it out wherever it’s found. The stakes are raised when two young boys are kidnapped and Sage is forced to work with Marshall Parker Timmons to rescue them. But Sage may ultimately get more than she bargained for.



In this exciting historical romance set in the late 1800s, murder, intrigue, kidnapping, and questions of faith will keep you in suspense until the final pages.

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book. Sage Morrow is a great female character who does not wallow in the guilt of losing her family and being the sole survivor. I love that she takes on the role of bounty hunter to seek out and bring to justice the men who killed her family, and has the unique ability to speak to her only companion, her Hawk! This is a great Native American, western romance that will literally keep you turning pages until you reach the final one. This is another one of my all time favorite books. My youngest daughter at 11 is now reading this book as well. It's great to see positive female role models in books for our daughters. I would highly recommend this book. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
