A REASON TO LIVE
McKade enthralls readers with a story short in length but big in impact that takes your breath away with its intense emotions and insight into the human heart, reminiscent of Francine Rivers. Brava to the author for being unafraid to put the pain of war and the sacrifice of so many on the page. She let us cry and heal with her characters.
When she's attacked by hooligans she's rescued by ex-gunslinger/bounty hunter Creede Forrester, who's searching for news of his son. Honor and chivalry demand he accompany her on her journey, and it pains Laurel to tell him the boy died.
Creede carries guilt over his wife's death and now his son's. Their deep emotional scars draw them together, but is their slowly growing friendship and love strong enough to overcome the shadows of guilt and the pain of loss? (Berkley Sensation, Sep., 304 pp., $6.99)
