Welcome back, Yarbros, those bad-boy outlaws turned into heroes! But it's Miller's intrinsic understanding of the West that is the real hero of her novels. Her characters are true to their nature, the era and the place. This story creates lasting memories of soul-searing redemption and the belief in goodness and hope.
Banker's daughter Sarah Tamlin is everything Wyatt wants in a woman -- smart, proper, beautiful and the key to his redemption. He has no idea that prim Sarah has plenty of secrets. Her father's health is failing, the bank's part-owner wants his share, including her, and the child she gave away 10 years ago is back in town. But Wyatt cares only for what's best for Sarah, and with his own past creeping up behind him, it will be a fight to hold on to their newfound love and peace. (HQN, Oct., 374 pp., $7.99)
