Molly Rose Simms arrives in Colorado to meet her brother, but instead finds herself searching for the mythical Bluebird mining claim with a man known as The Jackal.
“The Wings of the West series is a fresh take on women in the Old West and the men they love. I’m addicted to Kristy McCaffrey’s sexy westerns and adventurous heroines!”
—Ann Charles, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Award-winning Deadwood Mystery Series
Molly Rose Simms departs the Arizona Territory, eager for adventure, and travels to Colorado to visit her brother. Robert left two years ago to make his fortune in the booming silver town of Creede, and now Molly Rose hopes to convince him to accompany her to San Francisco, New York City, or even Europe. But Robert is nowhere to be found. All Molly Rose finds is his partner, a mysterious man known as The Jackal.
Jake McKenna has traveled the bustling streets of Istanbul, exotic ports in China, and the deserts of Morocco. His restless desire to explore has been the only constant in his life. When his search for the elusive and mythical Bluebird mining claim lands him a new partner, he must decide how far he’ll go to protect the stunning young woman who’s clearly in over her head. A home and hearth has never been on The Jackal’s agenda, but Molly Rose Simms is about to change his world in every conceivable way.
A sensuous historical western romance set in 1892 Colorado.
Can be read as a standalone novel.
Robert leaned close to Jake. “She’s my sister.” His low voice was edged with warning. “Not a plaything.”
“I can hear you,” Molly murmured from her spot on the floor, her eyes fixated on her task.
Robert stared at Jake with an unflinching gaze. Jake had only ever seen this side of him when it came to Bridget, at least in the beginning when Robert had become involved with Lannigan’s daughter.
“I’ll guard her with my life.” Jake meant it.
Molly stood. “Are you two done trying to one-up the other? I’d like a gun, since I’m pretty certain James Winston stole my derringer.”
They both looked at her.
Robert shifted his attention to Jake. “You still got that Colt Lightning?”
“Yep. Think she can handle it?”
“I told you I can shoot,” Molly said matter-of-factly.
Robert gave a nod. Jake retrieved the weapon from his gear and handed it to Molly, placing the grip into her palm. She took the weight, released the cylinder, eyed the empty chambers, then popped it back into position. “Do you have cartridges?”
Jake found a box of .38’s and handed it over. She went to the table and proceeded to load the gun.
Robert’s attention landed on Jake. “Maybe I won’t have to worry about you tarnishing my sister’s reputation after all.” Robert smiled, but there was little humor in the gesture.
Jake had never had a woman shoot him.
There was always a first time for everything.
