"The Outlaw Mail Order Bride
and her Hardened Hero"
by Florence Linnington

Alice was trying to change her life. She no longer wanted to run with an outlaw gang, but Willie refused to let her go. He’d declared that she was his and that he would kill anyone who got in his way. Not wanting to be with Willie or to bring suffering to anyone else, Alice decided to run away and to keep running for as long as she possibly could. She answered an ad from a preacher seeking a wife and journeyed out to the town of Calico as the first stop in her escape. Her plan was to stay for a little while and then move on, but she found herself falling in love with Gabe. Can she really just abandon him and continue to run? But what if Willie finds her? He’s made no secret of the fact that he would kill to keep Alice to himself.

I received this book as an Advanced Reader Copy. I really enjoyed the story, but the early version that I received contained a number of errors. I contacted the author and let her know about the ones that I was finding and she replied, saying that she was looking into them and making corrections. Once she completes those corrections (which should be before publication, but likely after I read the book), it should be even more enjoyable than the version that I read.

Before the author’s corrections, I would give this book 3 stars because of the errors that needed fixing. But once those corrections have been made, I would rate it at 4 stars because I really enjoyed the story that was told.
