Summary
1870. "Wealthy Englishwoman Lady Elizabeth Baylor longs for adventure. She leaves for America full of hope, only to lose everything to a villain hiding treachery behind his smile. Lost in this strange and lawless land, Elizabeth vows to track down the man who did her wrong...but she can't do it alone. What she needs is someone hardened by the west and unflinching toward its dangers: notorious bounty hunter Logan Best. Ill-mannered and seemingly ruthless, Logan exorcises his dark past by throwing himself into his vengeful profession--hunting wanted men. There's nothing about the pampered Englishwoman that should call to him, and yet as their adventure takes them across the wild and treacherous west, he realizes he'll do anything to keep her safe...and defend his Lady to his final breath."--Publisher's description

Review
  • Lady Elizabeth Baylor wants a new life away from her domineering older brother, so why not hop across the pond to America's Wild West, which she's read about in her penny dreadfuls? Armed with her substantial inheritance and many jewels, she starts making her way toward Denver. When tragedy falls, she puts her faith in the wrong man and ends up penniless and imperiled. She has no choice but to unite with notorious bounty hunter Logan Best. As they trek across the treacherous landscape to get back what is rightfully hers, she discovers that underneath Logan’s hardened shell is a caring and honest man. Although nothing is going as expected, maybe fate is bringing her exactly the man she needs. This immersive romance set in the lawless Old West is packed with action and adventure, including murder. Bittner (The Last Outlaw, 2017) has created an unlikely couple worth cheering for, and she sure knows how to keep readers on the edge of their seats. -- Jenna Friebel (Reviewed 2/15/2019) (Booklist, vol 115, number 12, p35)
  • /* Starred Review */ Bittner (The Last Outlaw) beautifully evokes the beauty and hardships of life in the late-19th-century American West as a British aristocrat falls for a hardened bounty hunter in this spellbinding historical. Lady Elizabeth Baylor and her brother, William, travel across the Atlantic with plans to settle in Denver, Colo. They are befriended by Sir Robert Alexander during the crossing, and after William falls overboard and drowns, Robert agrees to accompany Elizabeth to Denver. En route, Elizabeth learns that Robert has entrusted someone else with her jewels and money, and he tries to rape her. She shoots him and is left to fend for herself in Abilene, Kans., where the sheriff arrests her for Robert’s murder. Logan Best, a handsome, well-known bounty hunter, is searching for Robert, and when he learns Elizabeth’s story, he convinces the sheriff to release her, certain that she acted in self-defense. Elizabeth hires Logan to help track down her valuables, and insists on accompanying him. The witty banter between Logan and Elizabeth adds allure to their relationship, and as she adapts to life on the trail, he admires her beauty and tenacity. Bittner makes an implausible premise feel absolutely real, showing how two very different characters can make compromises and find love. Fast-paced, touching, and sensual, this historical is not to be missed. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Assoc. (Apr.) --Staff (Reviewed 01/28/2019) (Publishers Weekly, vol 266, issue 5, p)
