Book Review: Hitched to the Gunslinger
Gray “Quick Shot” Woodson is the fastest gun west of the Mississippi. Unfortunately, he’s ready to hang up his hat. Sure, being notorious has its perks. But the nomadic lifestyle—and people always tryin’ to kill you—gets old real fast.
Now he just wants to find a place to retire so he can spend his days the way the good Lord intended. Staring at the sunset. And napping.
When his stubborn horse drags him into a hole-in-the-wall town called Desolation, something about the place calls to Gray, and he figures he might actually have a shot at a sleepy retirement.
His optimism lasts about a minute and a half.
Soon he finds himself embroiled in a town vendetta and married to a woman named Mercy. Who, judging by her aggravating personality, doesn’t know the meaning of her own name. In fact, she’s downright impossible.
But dang it if his wife isn’t irresistible. If only she’d stop trying to steal his guns to go after the bad guys herself.
There goes his peace and quiet...
It has been a little bit since I have read a historical fiction romance like this. I used to read them all the time. So, glad that the first book I started with to get back into this genre was this book. So much fun and a quick read.
I have been a fan of westerns and gunslingers. Gray may be a feared for his reputation but underneath that tough exterior is a heart of gold. He is who I would want to have my back. Yet, Gray is not the only one in this book. Not to be missed is Mercy. She is a feisty, independent woman that stand toe to toe against Gray. Hitched to the Gunslinger is a rooting tooting good time!
Warning: You will find yourself laughing and smiling while reading this book.
