He vowed to bring her to justice…
U.S. Marshal Lucas McKenna has brought down some of the most notorious outlaws in the West. Now he’s on a personal mission: hunting the woman who killed his brother.
Antoinette Sutton is running for her life. The evidence against her is overwhelming—and no one will believe the truth about what happened. Lucas captures the dark-haired beauty in Colorado, but before he can take her back to Missouri to stand trial, the two are snowbound in a remote mining town. During the firelit nights of a Rocky Mountain winter, lawman and prisoner are caught in a dance of danger and desire… until Annie loses her heart and Lucas faces an impossible choice: will he do his duty and turn her in, or set her free and become an outlaw himself?

After Sundown - I had to read to sun-up
A great way to spend a quiet afternoon, and evening. The story drew me in and I was thoroughly invested in the characters by the end. You will not want to put this down once you start!
This author has the most unique storylines. I've read several of her books and have yet to be disappointed. The book was very heart wrenching in parts and I could feel the heroine's emotional pain. Wow. Really worth the money and time to read! My only criticism would be that the beginning of the story sets a more heavy, emotional mood or feel to the book, but then it kind of swaps to a lighter mood, then swaps again. Maybe the intent was to balance the feel so we don't want to medicate ourselves after reading it. I don't know, but sometimes it felt like two different stories. Having said that, it was still fantastic! I even told the whole story to my husband!
ANOTHER great book by Shelly Thacker. She has become my favorite author. I loved this story. I couldn't stop reading.
