Elizabeth Wainwright is on the run. Accused of a murder she didn't commit, she has no choice but to cut ties with her old life and flee West. The last thing she wants is attention, but when her stagecoach is attacked, she suddenly finds herself under the fierce protection of one of Montana's famed vigilantes. . . whether she likes it or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic Welcome to the Wild West at its finest! This story is bittersweet. It?s also revealing and heartening. Bittner captivates her audience with both the best and the worst of human nature. Her vivid yet realistic descriptions place the reader right in the middle of the action. You don?t just visualise this story, you live it. I found myself transported back in time, living vicariously through the pages of this novel. The characters in this tale were completely breathtaking. They were so real that it made it easy to fathom the experiences that they lived. I also appreciated the fact that they rose above what they lived through. That said, although their histories were definitely harsh and daunting, they weren?t completely out of the realm of possible. In fact, they are still things that occur too often today. Bittner allows the characters? emotions to shine through the pages of this novel, thus giving her readers an opportunity to connect with them. I found myself drawn in to their lives and definitely didn?t want to let them go at the end. Overall, I was completely enthralled throughout. Bittner takes western historical romance to an entirely new level with this story. It may have been my first of her novels but it definitely won?t be my last. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
