Overview

The Blackbird by Kristy McCaffrey

Haunted by a deadly attack, Tess Carlisle turns to bounty hunter Cale Walker to find her missing padre. But in the land of the Apache, can he free her heart?

"With dastardly villains, plenty of action, a strong heroine, surprising twists and turns, and a sexy cowboy, all underlined by a sensual love story, this historical western romance has something for everyone." ~ InD'tale Magazine

Bounty hunter Cale Walker arrives in Tucson to search for J. Howard "Hank" Carlisle at the request of his daughter, Tess. Hank mentored Cale before a falling out divided them and a mountain lion attack left Cale nearly dead. Rescued by a band of Nednai Apache, his wounds were considered a powerful omen and he was taught the ways of a di-yin, or a medicine man. To locate Hank, Cale must enter the Dragoon Mountains, straddling two worlds that no longer fit. But he has an even bigger problem--finding a way into the heart of a young woman determined to live life as a bystander.

For two years, Tess Carlisle has tried to heal the mental and physical wounds of a deadly assault by one of her papá's men. Continuing the traditions of her Mexican heritage, she has honed her skills as a cuentista, a storyteller and a Keeper of the Old Ways. But with no contact from her father since the attack, she fears the worst. Tess knows that to reenter Hank Carlisle's world is a dangerous endeavor, and her only hope is Cale Walker, a man unlike any she has ever known. Determined to make a journey that could lead straight into the path of her attacker, she hardens her resolve along with her heart. But Cale makes her yearn for something she vowed she never would--love.

A steamy historical western romance set in 1877 Arizona Territory.

I won this book from the author and was not required to give a favorable review. All thoughts are my own. This is the 4th book in the series and give you a different character in this series, this one is about Cale and him helping the daughter of a man he used to work with before his cougar attack. This brings him from TX to AZ and to a different outlook on the area. He understands the military work in the area, but he also understands what the Apache have been going through also since they helped him heal after his injury. Now is the time for him to help Tess deal with finding her father and also getting over what happened to her at the hands of the men that worked with him. This is a wonderful writing from both sides of the story. I love how each of the characters inter twine in all 4 of the books in this series. I am starting Book 5. I want to see what happens now.
