Laurie and the Lawman - HISTORICAL WESTERN FICTION
Can a Lawman fall in love with an outlaw’s widow?
After burying her outlaw husband, Laurie Rains learns he may have hidden two bags of gold on their farm. In search of more than her past life of shame, she dares to enter an empty church only to stumble over an injured lawman. Going against everything she’s been taught, she nurses the marshal back to health, protects him from her former brother-in-law, and gradually falls in love for the first time. But will loving a lawman be so different from marriage to an outlaw when the marshal gets what he came for and leaves?
Seth Collins, U. S. Deputy Marshal, is ambushed while on the trail of the outlaw who he hopes will lead him to his elusive partner in crime and the stolen gold. He’s eager to make the arrests, but must wait for the right timing while he works as Laurie’s hired hand. His respect for Laurie turns into love, but convincing her of his love and respect, and that he’s ready to take root on her farm, may be harder than finishing his assignment and living to tell of it.
