Overview

“REDEMPTION [La Desperada] is hands down the best love story I have ever read.” Melanie Mayron Actress/Director/Writer

With her husband dead and his brother trying to kill her, Elizabeth Dougherty breaks into the jail and holds a cold-blooded murderer at gunpoint, promising to release him if he’ll agree to her terms. “Take me with you.”

But when Boone Coulter grudgingly agrees, he has no idea that her would-be killer is the sheriff — an enemy from his past who now wants them both dead.

Set in the Texas and New Mexico of Billy the Kid, their passionate tale of love and sacrifice becomes the stuff of legend…

The legend of “La Desperada.”

Originally titled What Wild Ecstasy [Kensington Books], this tale inspired the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences/Nicholl Award-winning screenplay, “Redemption.”

From the first word to the last, you’ll be breathless and craving more.
Actress, Director, Writer - Melanie Mayron
REDEMPTION [La Desperada] is hands down the best love story I have ever read. The story is incredible with surprises that keep on coming. You cannot for the life of you figure out where it is going, and when you get there, it wraps with another big surprise.
Book Babe - Tara Chevrestt
An action packed, keep you guessing story and a surprise ending. I recommend it to all fans of historical romance.
This is Not Going to Turn Out Well - Bill Chance
Real story, real danger, real complexity. Plenty of meat to sink your teeth into.
CASTLE Producer, Writer - Terri Edda Miller
Great characters. Exciting adventure. Burroughs is a witty, crafty storyteller. This is the kind of book Joan Wilder would have wished she’d written, if she were real. Luckily Patricia Burroughs is.
