I would like to recommend this wonderful book. It was a very good read from start to finish and I could not put it down.
Trace Beldon is a very strong character with a lot of compassion. Kit Prate writes very deep characters that you can really get a feel for and indetify with. I laughed, cried and got mad right along with all of these characters.
Trace is a man struggling to come to terms with the betrayal of his wife and his bext friend. He is tired of hiding behind his gun and yearns to connect with his young son, whom he hasnt seen in a while. But the instant he sees him he knows in his heart he has lost him to his wife and step father, his ex best friend and now enemy.
Lonny his kid brother is handful and is at an age that he is trying his big brothers patience. He is a fifteen year old in a hellavah hurry to grow into a man and thinks he's already there. Trace has other ideas and goes about setting him straight.
The age gap between the brothers is large with Trace almost old enough to be Lonny's father, a thing Lonny resents but never the less respects too. He know Trace's strenghts and when the chips are down Trace is the boss and he damn well knows that too.
Then along comes a little boy called Toby; a boy with no one but a whore for a mother. A mother who could give a damn. He takes to Trace and Trace takes to him. He sees something in the kid that makes him want to help and he doesnt really know what it is himself...at least in the beginning.
But Trace has a need and Toby fills that need for him....
Lonny is heart jealous of the growing relationship between Trace and the boy which causes no end of trouble for Trace and Toby.... But Hey I am telling to much...READ IT...Its great! Heather Mallard

Trace Belden is a man struggling to restore his life after a cutting betrayal by the woman he once loved and a man he once respected. For years he sought to forget his pain by hiding behind the hard mask of a hired killer. He decides to reclaim his life and family but his path to happiness is pitted with more betrayal, danger, and death. His trials and tribulations on the cattle drive home are complicated by a rebellious kid brother and a endearing waif but ultimately those very obstacles cause him to realize there is more than one path to happiness. Kit tells this story with gritty detail, life was not always easy or pretty, especially in the west. Her characters are so realistically human you can't help but root for them, feel their pain and finally to rejoice when they achieve their heart's desire. This trip to the Lone Star state is a five star adventure!
