Overview

What happens when a bounty hunter finds his prey only to discover she’s his mate?

Book 1 of the Malloy family series.

Nicky Malloy is on the run—from guilt, fear, and a murder charge. After three years, the notorious bounty hunter Tyler Calhoun catches up with the elusive lady outlaw. The intensity of their dislike for each other is only matched by the growing passion they cannot seem to control.

A loner by nature, a cold hard hunter by choice, Tyler fights his feelings for his prisoner the only way he knows how—by denying them. He’s not prepared for how deeply his feelings will run, or how hard it will be to hold her life in his hands.

Pursued by two hapless cowboys bent on taking Nicky in themselves, Nicky and Tyler are forced to turn to each other for aid, trust, and comfort as their journey progresses on its rocky road. Caught in a web of lies and murder, they hold on to each other as they travel to Wyoming to confront the man that brought them together. Tyler has to decide if his love for her is worth more than the bounty he was sent to find.

This book has been previously published, but substantially revised and reedited.

Review by Jen: I picked up the ebook version of this book a while ago after seeing Beth Williamson promo this erotica western series. I'd been looking for more historical erotica and thought it sounded good. Besides, it's the first book in a series and we all know by now how much I love reading series. At any rate, this book sat on my ebook shelf for months and months. But then, recently I saw it waiting for me and decided to start reading. And I am glad I did. I liked the characters of Nicky and Tyler. Nicky is haunted by the events that led her to go on the run and Tyler is jaded from his childhood and career path. But both were able to get past the obstacles and embrace life. I enjoyed the plot. I haven't run across many women fugitive stories and this one was well done. And now I'm anxious to pick up the next book in the series (which follows Nicky's rather large family), The Prize. I highly recommend if you like some spice in your historical western romance reading. And the whole series is available in ebook and print.

What A Storyteller! This was my first Beth Williamson book..I am a huge fan of Linda Lael Miller and was anxious to find another author that wrote good western romance..Some of it out there is just horrid...I loved this book. I read it cover to cover yesterday. I am buying the rest of the " Malloy Family " books today..These books are sassy, and exciting to read...Beth Williamson is now one of my favorite authors..Love those Cowboys!!

First time I have read this author and I couldn't put it down. It is a fast read almost wish it wouldn't end. I almost didn't buy it as I stray away from series derived books...today I am ordering the rest and can't wait to get them in the mail.
Niki the damsel in distress had the most heroic cowboy. He isn't perfect at protection or love but hey she's strong enough to correct and protect as well. If your contemplating this book I say don't delay.

I was blown away by this book. I was looking for something a bit lighter to read and decided to give it a chance. This book has a bit of everything....some mystery...a little suspense...a bit of romance....a bit of humor... and it all came together to tell a wonderful story. I found myself laughing at the characters and some of the conversations they would have in their own minds. The story was interesting and the characters were easy to like. Highly recommend if you like this type of historical.

I enjoyed Tyler and Nicky's story. After running from an awful event, Nicky soon finds out she has a bounty on her head. The problem is that the bounty hunter is incredibly sexy and hard to resist. Well written and the first in a series of many. 176 pages
