    An entertaining read!

    Casey O¿Hare is running for her life. What starts out as a quick getaway from an outlaw band and the man who thinks he owns her, ends up with a mysterious stranger, looking down the barrel of his gun. Casey can¿t decide whether to shoot the handsome lawyer, Morgan Andrews, or trust him. Author DiAnn Mills takes the reader on a wild historical western ride with Casey and Morgan and the bloodthirsty Jenkins gang. Casey wonders if running away is worth the risk. Can she start her life anew? Or is her desire to do so putting everyone else in danger? Or worse, is Morgan friend or foe¿is he setting her up for the kill? I found the characters in this story entertaining and engaging and enjoyed this trek into the old west¿the time of horses and wagons and small towns and outlaws. Ms. Mills does a memorable job of weaving this historical tale.

    The Outlaw Casey O'Hare

    Fugitive Casey O¿Hare had joined the gang of outlaws as a teenager with her brother Tim. After seven years of being used and abused, she longs for something better than life on the run. She makes a run for it only to be captured by a man bent on killing the outlaw leader, Davis Jenkins. Morgan Andrews, a once bright and promising attorney, has pursued the outlaw Jenkins in a quest to avenge his wife¿s murder. Jenkins has been an elusive target. But his luck changes when he encounters Jenkins woman. He kidnaps her believing she will lead him to his quest. But she is not the hard-core, leathered woman he thought. When these two disparate individuals clash, love is ignited. Casey is on the run again, this time from the one man who could save her from the end of a rope and give her the home she craves. Set in the old west, the story propels the reader from the first page to it¿s conclusion. Diann Mills has once again weaved a story of adventure where love is challenged and faith overcomes a hardened past. Even the worst of mistakes find forgiveness in God¿s grace.

    Powerful romantic tale

    DiAnn Mills delivers up another gripping tale of faith and forgiveness wrapped in romance. Casey and Morgan both have seemingly insurmountable pasts to overcome. Casey has a price on her head in more than one state, and Morgan has his own ghosts to put to rest. Not an unusual romantic plot, except perhaps for Casey's former occupation. What makes this story stand out is the way Mills creates characters who are memorable. While the title refers to the hero and heroine, I found Casey herself to be both leather and lace. Worn weary from running, she longs for a new life¿to be ladylike. She delights in the new dress she buys, but is completely at home on the back of her stallion, Stampede, galloping at breakneck speed. When needed, she can handle a pistol like a gunslinger. While hiding out from the law and outlaws, Casey encounters other characters that are terrific. From the wise Sarah, whom Casey nurses, to the irrepressible Bonnie, Mills has given us another novel that induces a sigh when you turn the last page¿a very pleasurable read I recommend highly.
