Publisher's Summary

Lillian Hayes' fiance, Thomas Shelton, convinced the townsfolk to exchange their gold for his worthless bank notes. After he disappears with the gold, every eye turns to Lillian for answers. Even her cousin Carl insists she knows where the gold is. He is desperate to find it because he is deeply indebted to Kingston, small town criminal and owner of the local saloon. Carl will do anything to clear his debt; even torture Lillian for answers. Nick Brace is driving a herd of horses to town when he stumbles across Lillian, branded, strung up over a mineshaft, and left to die. He saves her, tends to her wounds, and teaches her to shoot to protect herself. But the danger isn't past. When Nick's horse-trading deal with Kingston goes bad, Lillian races to be the one to save him this time.

the horse trader and the dress maker

Lilian’s scumbag ex-fiancé stole all of the gold that was deposited at his bank and left her to face the wrath of the townspeople. Every small town has a rich bad guy with goons...and this town’s bad guy is BT, who owns the town saloon. Liliian’s cousin, Carl, encouraged to move out West and open a clothes shop. Once she arrived, Carl expected her to pay his gambling debts. When the ex-douche skips town, BT & goons, including Carl, kidnap Lil and torture her, believing that she knows the location of the gold. Nick, a horse trader, is on his way to town to sell his horses when he stumbles upon a woman...bound, gagged & hanging over a mine shaft. Nick cuts down the woman & nurses her back to health. Meanwhile in small town, BT is requiring proof that Lil is dead...will they find Lil and finish the job? Will Nick & Lil give in to the growing attraction to each other? Will they find the gold? No spoilers...just know that Lil grows a backbone. There is an HEA. Now my heart rate can get back to normal!
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Cowboys and romance!

This western style story has a little bit of everything. You have that old time western feel of the robbery, the bad guys chasing who they thought have the gold, the damsel in distress and the cowboy to the rescue. Nick and Lillian build a love while living through extenuating circumstances. Nick is the protective type, easy to fall for while Lillian is trying to figure out where life will take her next. Being pursued for the gold leaves her vulnerable and afraid. With this strong man next to her, will she be protected? When Nick finds himself in a deal with the devil, how will it all play out? Parmley has woven a lot of suspense into this novella. With a fairly large supporting cast including BT, Grady and Carl, it would have been interesting to have additional storyline with these outlaws.They did heighten the excitement of the story. A fun listen.

Joshua Macrae is a soft sounding narrator, his voice is very soothing. I found his narration at times to be a little too easy,the characters need the gruffness and ruggedness of an outlaw. He does have a good pace for his reading and a good variety of voices.
