Review by Camellia

She's come for his life…

Feisty Lily Carrington wants revenge for the murder of her father. She's finally tracked down the killer—and she's going to make him pay….

He'll fight to keep it…

Juniper Barns has done everything he can to escape his violent past. Now a hardworking sheriff, he protects the lives of those in need. But he can't outrun his destiny anymore. It's time to stand and fight.

Only, this time, his opponent is beautiful Lily—the vulnerable girl who came looking for vengeance, but who's in danger of losing her heart to the one man she's forbidden from loving…

Two wounded souls, Lily and Juniper, had both suffered at the hands of uncaring adults aFter they were orphaned at an early age. Each of them learned survival skills that served them well in their respective environments until fate threw them together.

My goodness, with both of them determined to control a volatile situation at Pine Ridge, action and passion make for breath-holding reading.

Stacey Kayne gives us vibrant, life-like characters who cope with what can’t be changed in their past (even though they can’t forget) as they strive to carve out a future. At times, she lets humor shine through like a bright ray of sunlight.

Reginald, Lily’s ‘sort-of’ cousin, is a darling and should have a story all his own. What a joy to have a friend like Regi.

THE GUNSLINGER’S UNTAMED BRIDE is a story of entangled lives so snared the possibility of working out the kinks and knots seems hopeless. But, Stacey Kayne does a superb job of finding the twists and turns and, with subtle maneuvering, untangles the mess so Juniper and Lily can start their happy-ever-after.

The contrast between the opulent offices of L.P. Carrington in San Francisco to the rough-and-tumble of the lumber camp at Pine Ridge is almost as sharp as the contrast between the hate and love seen in this compelling story. EXCITING READING!
