From the Author of 'War Paint' & 'Nate Grisham'
Ex-Confederate Colonel Jake Masters became a bounty hunter following four years of bloody conflict, because all he knew was how to kill. After an Arizona bank robbery turns bad and people die, the robbers turn south into Mexico, thinking they've made a clean getaway. Little do they know, Jake Masters, a bounty hunter who never fails to get a man he's after, is on their trail and he's determined to bring them in... dead or alive. In the Sonoran Desert, hot on the path of the outlaws, Jake meets a beautiful but injured woman, the lone survivor of a vicious Apache massacre. She must come with him or risk crossing the scorching desert alone.
The outlaws, reduced in numbers by Jake to only two men, pull off a successful gold heist in Mexico, and then run with their newly gained riches to Saint Louis. The action never slows down in this western tale of the hunter and the hunted, because Jake Masters doesn't know the meaning of the word quit.

Paul Yancey is not what you'd call a professional anything. After leaving Belle Clare Plantation, he'd drifted from city to city, from job to job, without ever really finding himself or his niche in life.
Until the fateful hunting trip on which he'd accompanied his brother Matthew, a former Texas Ranger. Their time together out in the Texas hill country was supposed to be relaxing and rejuvenating. Instead, they'd happened across Arliss Helms, cattle thief and stagecoach robber. Later, Paul writes the story of their meeting and apprehension and sells it to a newspaper chain. From there, he's off and running in his new career. A respectable one, no less.
Other outlaws and gunslingers cross his path; other stories follow.
Now comes one that will be the biggest to hit print. If he can secure it.
Catamount Clemens is holed up in some hideaway near Mount Whitney. Not only must Paul track him down, but he must do it before other forces interfere.
With speed and proficiency in mind, ...
As the child of a Mexican father and a Cherokee mother, Goldenstar Mendoza has known the stigma of being called "Half-breed" since childhood. As an adult, selling her parents' stock of homemade commodities in 1861 San Francisco, she has dealt with being shunned by women; and with being intimidated and harassed by men.
This is very apparent with Franklin Bower, a wealthy rancher who has set his sights on installing Star at his Condor Ranch. He wants her, and he doesn't care how he gets her.
While Star has detractors, she also has defenders: close friend Frances Goddard, and her brother, William, sheriff of San Francisco. Also a new friend, Sarah Coleman, governess for five-year-old Rob Yancey and housekeeper for his widowed father, Matthew.
Recently, Texas Ranger Matt and his son had arrived in San Francisco to attend the wedding of his brother, John, and stayed on at the request of Sheriff Goddard. Matt can't help being attracted to beautiful Star, and she to him.
Their dinner ...
