When Addie's ranch is threatened, she goes out and gets her a husband in the guise of Jude Morgan, gunslinger. But has Jude given up his Colts?
Set in historical Texas, Addie's neighbor, Cartherers threatens to dam up the river if he can't marry her and gain access to her land. Addie seeks out Jude to pose as her husband. After playing their parts with a kiss or two, Addie questions the wisdom of asking Jude to pose as her husband. Can Jude help Addie save her land or will he walk away?
Yeary intrigues the reader right from the start when Addie saunters into the jail looking for a husband and finds Jude. The plot moves well and it's easy to picture the old west setting. The characters are interesting. Addie needs a little refinement and Jude's looking for something better in his life, but can he find it on Addie's ranch? The love story is "sweet" with a couple of kisses and tender caresses. Addie and the Gunslinger has just the right balance of old west, romance, action, adventure, and intrigue. A very heartwarming read.
