A wandering man, a woman with secrets , , , enemies on all sides, can these two wounded souls stay alive long enough to learn to love?


Uncaged Review: This is the first book I’ve read
from this author, and I’m pretty sure it won’t be
the last. I like the way the author doesn’t gloss
over the wild west and over-romanticize it. The
true old west was brutal and dangerous and this
book plays out like a good film. After Elise is
betrayed and her ranch stolen from her which she
was meant to inherit, she plots revenge on those
that betrayed her. The only fly in this ointment is
Boyd, a bounty hunter that wants to protect her.
Elise finally lets Boyd help, but she makes it clear
that she doesn’t want or need his protection.

This is a good story, it starts a tad slow in the
beginning, but it’s not an overly long book, and
once you get past the first couple chapters, the
book picks up interest. I honestly could easily
see this play out well as a movie on one of the
streaming services. Boyd and Elise will need to
work together to win back Elise’s ranch, and just
maybe along the way, it will heal Boyd’s broken
heart.
