Beth Caldwell is no man's property. She's already courting trouble after rejecting an offer of marriage from a foul-tempered and land-hungry cattle baron. When she finds Isaac Collins—a handsome outlaw—hiding in her barn, she lands in a whole new heap of trouble. Trouble both sweet and forbidden. But Beth's rejected suitor is no gentleman, and he'll do whatever it takes to get what he wants.

He’s gambled everything…except his heart.

Beth Caldwell is no man’s property. A gambler’s widow with a willful, independent streak, she’s already courting trouble after rejecting an offer of marriage from a foul-tempered and land-hungry cattle baron. But when Beth discovers finds a dreadfully handsome outlaw hiding in her barn, she lands in a whole new heap o’ trouble…

Isaac Collins survived the Civil War only to find himself scapegoated for stagecoach robbery and murder. With nothing left to lose, he gambled everything on revenge and barely escaped with his life. Now he’s relying on the kindness of a fierce, strong-willed woman…and God help him if there isn’t something both sweet and forbidden simmering between them.

But Beth’s rejected suitor is no gentleman. He’ll do whatever it takes to get her land. And in Nevada, everything rides on a high-stakes game of chance…especially love and death.

It's been a while since I got my hands on a historical romance - especially one that was also a western. Either I've turned into a military romance junkie, or the genre doesn't appeal t... ...more

Several years ago, Beth Caldwell lost her card-shark husband to a bad game of cards.

I looked forward to reading this book every spare moment I had!
There is so much going on in this novel beyond the romantic entanglement of Beth and Isaac. There are many other great characters in the book, all with varying scandalous lives and their individual stories will make subsequent titles... ...more

By Anne June 27, 2015

LOVED this story. Isaack is a hottie that I could sink my teeth into. Figuratively, of course. The use of the first person was an interesting choice for a historical, and done more effectively than most New Adult books I've read recently. I certainly couldn't do it (I've tried) that effectively.... ...more

About the author

Margaret Madigan

I write romance and science fiction for Entangled Publishing and Evernight Publishing. I'm an Oregon Ducks fan. I'm a donut and pastry addict (pretty much any carbs, really). I like cats. I'm terrified of balloons. When I'm not writing you'll find me in a college classroom teaching English, or working as a literary agent for an amazing agency...and of course, wrangling my family. Thanks for visiting my page. I love it when my readers review my work on Amazon, GoodReads, Barnes and Noble, blogs, or wherever else they think of. When you talk about something I've written, not only does it make me ridiculously happy, it also lets other readers know it's a great read and they should run out and buy it. So if you enjoy something I've written, please review it! I'll love you forever if you do.
