This is book two in The Western Sky Series and I liked it even more than book one, The Outlaw's Bride. This book can be read as a stand alone as it really didn't tie into book one at all.
Cade Kolby is a famous bounty hunter who has come back to a a town he left 15 years ago. His sister and her husband have died and Cade must go home to see to his nieces and nephews and find a home for them. Zoe Bradshaw has seen her best friend die and has now taken on the care of the four children. She assumes Cade will let her continue to care for them, but Cade has other plans. To make it more interesting Zoe loved Cade 15 years ago and has never really gotten over him. But she is a red-head and does have a temper and is a little angry at the man right now. The townsfolks step in and try to get these children both a mon and a dad, if they can just get Zoe and Cade to "talk it out".
This was an enjoyable western romantic story, filled with "sparring" between Zoe and Cade. I enjoyed Cade's teasing attitude, and Zoe held her own in the battle of the wills. It was just an all around delightful story that kept me very entertained.
