Overview

SHE HIRED HIM TO PROTECT HER TOWN

As the owner of the Pennyroyal Saloon and Hotel, Lorraine Berry is privy to almost everything that goes on in Bitter Springs, Wyoming—including the bloodshed plaguing its citizens. With all of the good men dying at the hands of a local rancher and his three sons, Raine hires a shootist to be the town’s protector. But her handsome new employee is more than a hired hand; he’s a man who keeps his guns close and his secrets closer.

BUT NOTHING COULD PROTECT HER HEART

After a chance encounter on a train, Kellen Coltrane travels to the Pennyroyal to carry out a dying man’s last wish. But once he meets the hotel’s fiery-haired proprietor, Coltrane finds himself assuming the role of the shootist’s accomplice and agrees to protect Bitter Springs. And as he learns more about Raine’s own tragedy, Coltrane can’t deny his growing desire for the courageous widow, or the urge to protect her from the threat that draws near…

Praise

Praise for THE LAST RENEGADE:
"Fans of western romance will be thrilled with this delightful addition to Goodman’s strong list." –Booklist

"Simmering sexual tension, exceptional character development, and slowly revealed secrets make this a book to savor."–Library Journal

"Humor and drama…a complicated, fast-paced, and deliciously believable story of love, sex, and secrets." –Publishers Weekly

The Last Renegade plays out like the best classic western movies. Tension builds steadily as the pages turn, with author Jo Goodman teasingly offering up tidbits that round out the characters and plot as the story winds towards a good old-fashioned western conclusion. Goodman uses beautifully evocative language to set the scene, and her use of physical descriptors and dialogue paint portraits of the characters right down to “cheeks apple red with windburn and excitement.” The Last Renegade …is exceptional across the board, a sheer delight.” –Reader to Reader

"*sigh* This author remains one of my absolute favorites. She can write the hell out of a book. I read her work and feel like she values my intelligence as a reader." –Fiction Vixen

"Jo Goodman is a master storyteller and one of the reasons I love historical romance so much….The Last Renegade is an outstanding historical western …Even if American historicals aren’t your cup of tea, Goodman’s writing is brilliant enough to convince you otherwise. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!" –The Romance Dish
