THE LAST RENEGADE by Jo Goodman
 

A READER'S OPINION

Bitter Springs is an interesting little town in Wyoming, but not nearly as interesting as its residents. Kellen Coltrane isn't what you'd expect. Yes, I figured out his real identity early on, but that didn't stop the enjoyment of watching the townsfolk try to figure out Coltrane. Lorraine Berry is a force to be reckoned with, but that doesn't stop her tender side from showing when she's with Kellen. Their chemistry is wonderful, and Goodman knows how to write a great scene that doesn't detract from the story. The townsfolk are just as endearing, especially two little rascals called Rabbit and Finn. Charm, wit, and romance are all wrapped into one great story.

The secondary characters in Bitter Springs were a surprise and a delight and I eagerly awaited their interactions with the hero and heroine. Jo Goodman does not disappoint with this sensational, well-researched, highly sensual, and cleverly-written western historical romance. Goodman has fast become one of my favorite authors.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

A stunning western historical romance from USA Today bestselling author Jo Goodman.

SHE HIRED HIM TO PROTECT HER TOWN

As the owner of the Pennyroyal Saloon and Hotel, Lorraine Berry is privy to almost everything that goes on in Bitter Springs, Wyoming—including the bloodshed plaguing its citizens. With all of the good men dying at the hands of a local rancher and his three sons, Raine hires a shootist to be the town’s protector. But her handsome new employee is more than a hired hand; he’s a man who keeps his guns close and his secrets closer.

BUT NOTHING COULD PROTECT HER HEART

After a chance encounter on a train, Kellen Coltrane travels to the Pennyroyal to carry out a dying man’s last wish. But once he meets the hotel’s fiery-haired proprietor, Coltrane finds himself assuming the role of the shootist’s accomplice and agrees to protect Bitter Springs. And as he learns more about Raine’s own tragedy, Coltrane can’t deny his growing desire for the courageous widow, or the urge to protect her from the threat that draws near… ​
