Publisher's Weekly Review

Historical romance author Copeland (Angel Face and Amazing Grace) has a winner in this crisply written, sweetly sentimental tale of love lost and found. Red-haired Zoe Bradshaw has never forgotten Cade Kolby, who loved and left her to become a legendary bounty hunter. Now, 17 years later, Cade's sister Addy dies, leaving him her four adorable children. But Zoe wants them, and a tug-of-war, and hearts, ensues. Complicating matters further are Zoe and Cade's rekindled passion; the formidable great-aunt Laticia (who also wants the children); villainous outlaw Hart McGill, out for revenge; and the good folk of Winterborn, Kans., determined to stand by their own to the last bloody gunfight on the streets.

Library Journal Review

When bounty hunter Cade Kolby returns to his small Kansas hometown to make arrangements for his late sister's four young children, he finds them in the care of the fiery Zoe Bradshaw, the woman he'd loved and left to "follow the gun." Of course, he hadn't intended to be gone for 17 years. The problems and inevitable conflicts resulting from the situation are predictable, but the appealing children (although Missy's lisp does become distracting), the nonstop pace, the lively humor, and a few unexpected, and rather serious, events will keep Copeland's (Angel Face and Amazing Grace, Fawcett, 1997) fans nicely entertained. She lives in Springfield, Mo. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
