Unique, fun read!
“Lianna Hawkins’ premiere novel, The Bounty’s Reward, is not your usual western historical romance. Expect a flavor of television series like the Wild, Wild West starting with role reversal.
Ellie Becket runs a saloon staffed by women that serves women in a time when women generally were not welcome in drinking establishments. Behind the scenes, Ellie and her adoptive sisters rescue battered and troubled women. Add the less than honest backgrounds of the sisters and their adoptive father showing up to reveal their nefarious pasts and to reclaim control of them and this story stampedes into action.
Then there’s Liam Holt, the mysterious stranger who shows up and catches the eye of the marriage wary Ellie. What better twist than for him to have a hidden connection to the evil man who raised Ellie and her sisters. Want to know how Liam, Ellie, and her sisters out-maneuver the father’s game? Want to know how Ellie and Liam resolve the conflict of her felonious past and his secret? Read THE BOUNTY’S REWARD, the first in Lianna Hawkins’ A Runaway Outlaws Novella series. Unique, fun read!” from Award-Winning Author of the St. John Sibling Series, Barbara Raffin.
