Summary
Miranda Hayes' life was changed the day she faced down infamous gunslinger Jake Harkner...and walked away with his heart. Their fates have been intertwined ever since. Hunted by the law, fleeing across a savage land, their desperate love flourished despite countless sorrows. Now, twenty-six years later, their family has finally found some measure of peace...balanced on the knife's edge of danger. Jake has spent his years as a U.S. Marshal atoning for sins, bringing law to the land he once terrorized. But no matter how hard he fights the demons of his brutal past, the old darkness still threatens to consume him. Only Miranda keeps the shadows at bay. But when outlaws looking for revenge strike a fatal blow, Jake risks losing the one woman who saw past his hard exterior and to the man inside. He always knew there'd be the devil to pay. He just never realized he might not be the one to bear the ultimate price

Review
Veteran romance author Bittner revisits the characters of Outlaw Hearts as a much older couple in this captivating romance set in late-19th-century Guthrie, Okla. U.S. Marshal Jake Harkner loves the life he has built with his wife, Miranda; their grown children, Lloyd and Evie; and grandchildren Stephen and Little Jake. Jake initially dislikes journalist Jeff Trubridge, but when Jeff proves his worth during a shootout in Guthrie, Jake changes his mind about the polite and reserved young man and agrees to help him write his book. Yet danger seems to constantly follow Jake, and when outlaws kidnap Miranda, he will stop at nothing to get his loved ones back and punish the perpetrators. This somewhat lengthy novel is a refreshing view of enduring love that survives the dangers of the Old West. Jake is a man of his time who feels deeply possessive of Miranda, and though Bittner takes pains to describe her as a strong woman, she’s also quite willing to yield to her man. There’s plenty of drama, including gunfights and multiple brushes with mortality, amid great storytelling that readers will savor. Agent: Maura Kye Casella, Don Congdon Associates.
