THE LAWMAN (4) by Patricia Potter: U.S. Marshal Jared Evans has finally tracked down outlaw Cal Thornton in a remote Colorado town in this 1876-set historical. Samantha Blair, a proud, defiant orphan who was raised by Cal and two other outlaws, shoots Jared in a showdown. Refusing to leave the marshal for dead, she nurses Jared back to health while a posse of lawless bounty hunters closes in on them. What follows is a slow-burning tale of redemption, forgiveness and romance.
