He's everything she fears…
Wounded gunfighter Colt Evans stumbles onto a remote homestead never expecting to find compassion. But beautiful Amelia McCollister is like no other woman. Suddenly, his dream of settling down with a wife and home is within reach—but only if his past never comes gunning for him.
She's everything he dreams of…
Amelia had to grow up fast after outlaws murdered her parents, leaving her to raise her siblings alone. With a young brother who idolizes shootists, she dreads having a notorious gunman in her home. But as Colt slowly recovers, he reveals a caring nature under his tough exterior that Amelia can't resist.
Just when Colt starts to believe he can leave the gunfighter life behind, his past returns, bringing danger to them all. Can a shootist ever hang up his hardware? Or will their dreams disappear in the smoke of a desperado's gun?

Colt's horse is a very thinly disguised rendition of my own horse, a 3/4 Arabian gelding. Dipper is registered as a grey, but he started life looking more like a strawberry roan. The older he got, the less strawberry he was until now at 30 years old, he's a silver grey. Baby-sitter, gentleman, and in his younger days, capable of turning into a high-octane jet engine with a quick bridle and bit change. He's been in my life since he was 7 months old.
