A Story of Violence, Lies, and Love in the Old West



Matt Harper had simple wants, a small spread, a few cattle, Sarah, the woman he loved, and a peaceful life. In the foothills of Colorado in the autumn of 1887 he almost had them. But, because of one mistake, he lost all except his ranch. Twenty years later he got Sarah back. Now he would lose her again because of her son, John's, hate for him. Maybe that was proper considering the lies he had told to win her back. One rustler from the past returned to expose his lies and destroy his life. Matt had to take care of him.

Through buffalo hunts and stampedes, winter blizzards on the western plains, knock-down; free-for-all; bare-knuckle fights, blazing gun battles, grueling horse chases, and a hangman's noose around his neck, Matt fought for what he wanted.

He, Sarah, and John could get what they wanted and find happiness - if Matt's risking all their lives in a desperate gamble paid off.

Here is a sample:

Matt leveled the barrel of the gun at the man's nose and thumbed back the hammer. The click echoed through the barn. John and Beemis froze.

"Move and you'll eat lead." The single action Colt Navy Dragoon weighed his hand down, and it wavered. He knew he had only enough strength for that one action and he'd do it if they pressed him further. John stared at Beemis who glared at Matt's finger as it took up slack against the trigger.
