Image of The Gunslinger's Vow (Runaway Brides)

Once there were three Runaway Brides who went West to find their destinies in a place where anything can happen. Capturing the aura of Montana and the gritty harshness of the land and the people, Sandas crafts an authentic western romance with strong characters and a feminist bent. The theme of revenge and redemption run strong in this story of a man and a woman determined to find justice and love.

Before she can accept a marriage proposal from a Boston beau, Alexandra Brighton decides to return to her childhood home. Stranded in Colorado, Alex “hires” bounty hunter Malcolm Kincaid to escort her to Montana. Kincaid is on his way to the territory to hunt down the man who killed his brother and attacked a girl years ago — he has no time for coddling a prim Eastern miss. But Alex surprises him with her strength and courage on a journey fraught with danger. Reaching Montana brings new problems. There is no doubt Malcolm and Alex have fallen in love, but their love is complicated by their pasts and Malcolm’s determination to kill Walter Dustan — a move that will endanger Alex and her family. Alex will not lose Malcolm in a gunfight. She vows he won’t face their enemy alone. (SOURCEBOOKS, Jun., 416 pp., $7.99)
