Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Experience the epic, sweeping story of Jake and Miranda Harkner from Bittner’s beloved Outlaw Hearts, called by New York Times bestseller Heather Graham “a wonderful, absorbing read, with characters to capture the heart and the imagination”.
Fate brought them together. His past may tear them apart.
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.
I read the first book in this series in August 2017, and I really need to start reading the rest of the series before I forget what happened in the first book. I bought this book at the same time I bought the first book in the series, Outlaw Hearts, so it has been hanging around on my tbr for a few years. I actually have books 3 and 4 of the series from NetGalley so I would really like to finish my journey with Jake and Miranda. Since I enjoyed the first book, I have high hopes for this one.
What are your thoughts? Have you read this book? Would you recommend it to others?
