Overview

On the run from her ex-lover, jilted by a no-show husband and now mistaken for a whore in the Diamond Back saloon, Abigail Thornton doesn’t think things can get any worse. That is until a single slap to a man’s face starts a barroom brawl that lands her in the last place she expected to be.

Town Marshal Morgan Avery wants nothing more than to wash away the trail-dust and sleep for a week, preferably with a soft, willing woman by his side. Instead, he gets Abigail Thornton – all one hundred pounds of her thrust at him seconds before a fist connects with his face. Breaking up the fight takes more effort than he wants to admit and when the last man falls he finds Abigail still standing and not looking the least bit contrite.

Throwing her into the town jail for the night would salve his wounded pride and then he will let her go. Or that was the plan. When morning comes he finds himself oddly reluctant to do so. Miss Thornton is hiding something and he aims to find out what, even if he has to bed her to do so. But will one night in her bed be enough?

    Good read.

    This is my first book by ms Graison. It is about 200 pages. The story is is mostly a mystery. The story is different in that most of it takes place within the town. I did not like the female background, but i understood it. This is a series. The romance will not disappoint. Wish the book was longer and had a more detailed ending.

    The Lawman takes place in 1869 and starts with Abigail running f

    The Lawman takes place in 1869 and starts with Abigail running from her ex-lover. She decides to be a mail order bride and goes to Montana to meet the man she has agreed to marry but he has been arrested and not there to marry her. Even though she is out of money, she has to get back on the stage coach and keep moving or get married right away.  She enters the saloon to get the stage coach driver and accidentally starts a brawl that destroys the bar. Marshal Morgan Avery walks in on the kayos and arrests her. He takes her to the jail and locks her in a cell.

    This story is uniquely set in the time period. It both conforms with and goes against the times.

    I liked the characters in The Lawman.  Abigail was feisty and tried to get herself out of the problems she unknowingly created. I was surprised with how brazen Abigail was for that time period. Morgan was a good man and always wanted to do the 'right thing'. But the fact that he ALWAYS wanted sex lowered his appeal to me. When Abigail and Morgan got together, it felt more of a business arrangement than attraction for each other so that part wasn't believable.
