When Katie Hoffman married Jarrod, she thought it would be forever. Now, after only four months together, she is a widow and risks losing their farm unless she can sell it soon. But instead of buying the farm, Allan King wants to marry her. His charming ways sweep Katie off of her feet and help her to imagine a brighter future. Is it really what she wants?

Just as the ceremony begins, in bursts a man dressed in black with guns waving. He calls Allan Sloane, and Katie is completely baffled by this turn of events. Things worsen when Katie's house catches fire and she is injured in the ensuing struggle. Dusty McIntyre's life was altered forever when an outlaw, Ed Sloane, set fire to his house and killed his wife. He vows to capture Sloane and avenge his wife's death if it is the last thing he does. When he discovers Sloane about to marry, Dusty decides to take matters into his own hands. Dusty feels guilty that Katie's house was destroyed, so he decides to stay and help. When he finds himself attracted to the beautiful widow, can he allow his heart to be opened to love again?

This is a charming romance, set in the early 1900s. The reader will feel a part of the setting and action through the vivid descriptions. Both Katie and Dusty have risked their hearts and loved before, but have been badly hurt. Watching them open up to God's opportunities in their lives is heartwarming and joyful to experience. Even readers who are not huge fans of romance novels will find plenty of action to keep them interested. This balance gives the book appeal to a wider audience. The Bounty Hunter and the Bride is a top-notch faith based historical romance.
