Merging conventional western themes with an usual backdrop and plot, Kernan creates an engaging and fascinating story with strong characters that will provide readers with a real understanding of the western mentality.

Cole Elliot is set to hang when Bridget Callaghan walks into his cell and asks him to rescue her family, who are trapped in the mountains. Bridget needs more than his advice; she needs Cole himself and breaks him out.

Riddled with guilt over the loss of his wife and daughter, Cole reluctantly agrees to aid Bridget. The trip is arduous, and it's unlikely they'll survive, but as they share so many harrowing experiences, Bridget and Cole inevitably seek warmth with one another. They also share their deepest fears, longings and secrets. However, saving her family and returning to civilization come at a price that only those who have found love and redemption are willing to pay. (Harlequin, Feb., 300 pp., $5.99)
