Tyree must once again, decide whether to use his skill as a gunfighter in order to keep his new family safe from his old.


He caught sight of himself in the grayed mirror behind the bar. He was a full head shorter than the man standing beside him. He looked, he thought, like a skinny hound standing in the presence of a timber wolf, and it reminded him that in the larger scheme of things he was alone. He and the bounty hunter were the only people in that saloon if it came to trouble. The voices of his friends faded into the dingy air, and he swallowed down the knuckle-sized chunk of panic that rose in his throat.

“I don’t ride with Clem,” he told the bounty hunter.

“You ride with his brothers, I know. I see who you’re rubbing elbows with here, still keeping company with vermin. Damn shame, but I ain’t surprised. Where would I find Clem, you think?” The man took a step toward him, and Tyree’s hand dropped alongside his hip.

“You are a stupid little mongrel. You pull that thing, I’ll feed it to you,” Kyle Brown told him quietly.

Berenice: La verdad es una novela muy buena me ha gustado mucho lleva muy bien el hilo de la trama y de los personajes los diálogos son acertados si lleva a uno a transportarse en ella.

Happiness: The plot is great, author's writing style is wonderful and the grammar too. Can be improved on though. Thank you

Lotte: This book is amazing. Ellie perfectly describes how anxiety feels and manifest and what it's like to have a rock that calms you.

mrsbabear: I love all the books in this series so far. I especially like the fact that these stories are fairly short. Just a question though…why didn’t you tie up the loose end in regards to the past relationship with Tilly and Kyle Lazzartti?

Jamie: I’m not a professional writer! I love the story so far and I’m completely hooked on the White Wolves books. Plot is very straight forward but threw me for a loop once or twice. Replaying the same scene from another character POV is infuriating when I’m excited to read what’s next but I don’t want...
