BEAUTY AND THE BOUNTY HUNTER

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST BOOK 1

RITA FINALIST

Once Upon a Time . . .

Beauty Became the Bounty Hunter

Cathleen Chase was an unassuming farmer’s wife until her husband was gunned down in front of her. Desperate for revenge, she offered con artist Alexi Romanov anything if he would school her in the art of the dodge.

Alexi didn’t realize he’d turned Cathleen Chase into Cat O’Banyon, a ruthless bounty hunter who would stop at nothing to catch the man who murdered her husband, until she was gone. That she took the heart he didn’t know he had along with her surprised him even more.

Now Cat has a bounty on her head. Hunted by every gunslinger from Abilene to St. Louis to Denver, she won’t last long without an ally. With little choice, she turns to Alexi for help. But, again, he has his price. Again, she will pay any cost.

To survive, they must trust each other, but in a relationship forged from deception and lust, is trust even possible?

And if they can’t learn to trust, can they ever learn to love?
