Addie and the Gunslinger-by Celia Yeary

Addie and the Gunslinger


 Ex-gunslinger Jude Morgan lands in jail in a far-flung West Texas town. On the fourth day in his cell, the sheriff arrives with a beautiful woman dressed in men’s pants and toting her own six-shooter. Adriana Jones claims he is her worthless husband who married her but never came home.

The young woman makes a bargain with Jude in front of the sheriff. Jude is to come home where he belongs, and she will have him released. When they’re alone, she explains his job is to pose as her husband to thwart the marriage advances of her neighbor, wealthy rancher Horace Caruthers. The older man wants her ranch to join his, because the Pecos River runs through her property.

To seal the bargain, Jude wants a kiss. During the next few weeks, however, Jude and Addie learn that the kiss meant more than they meant it to be. Then, Addie’s life is in danger. Will Jude rescue his Addie? Or will Addie save herself and her gunslinger?

1st Mini- Excerpt:

“Ever been kissed, Miss Jones?” Wanting to loosen her up, he tried teasing, but it didn’t seem to work.

Her voice trembled a little. “That is none of your business. I don’t intend our relationship to be at all personal. You just come and go, do your job, and pay no attention to me.”

Chuckling under his breath, he thought, like hell.

2cd Mini-Excerpt

Before she kicked her horse into a gallop, she lifted her chin and said, “You need a bath, Mr. Morgan.”

“Addie. It’s Jude.”

Jude. You need a bath.”

    I read this novella two days ago. What a lovely story. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, a delightful heroine and heart-grabbing hero.
