ABOUT THE BOOK



LOVE this cover!!!!! ****SQUEE!!!!****

They took away everything she loved...now, she’s out for revenge.




Sage Morrow had it all: life on a beautiful Colorado ranch, a husband who adored her, and a baby on the way. Until five ruthless gunmen rode up to their ranch and changed her life forever. Now Sage is a bounty hunter bent on retribution.



Accompanied only by her majestic hawk, she travels throughout the Rocky Mountains in search of injustice, determined to stamp it out wherever it’s found. The stakes are raised when two young boys are kidnapped and Sage is forced to work with Marshall Parker Timmons to rescue them. But Sage may ultimately get more than she bargained for.



In this exciting historical romance set in the late 1800s, murder, intrigue, kidnapping, and questions of faith will keep you in suspense until the final pages.

Watch the Video Book Trailer:





Now, isn't that trailer just divine??? Are you convinced yet of the need to read this book?!?!?

Is it possible to say an author is a favorite after the first exposure to him/her? Well, this is how I feel about DiAnn Mills. This is my first read by her and I LOVE IT!! I was grabbed and snared into this book from the first line. It was all I could do to finish up chores to get back to the book when life called for me to be mommy and wife!

I can be a sucker for books involving Indians, outlaws, and cowboys. I wasn't quite sure what this book would be for me when requesting it but I was not one bit disappointed. The story of Sage (love the name!), Charles, the McCaws, and Parker was full of intense action. I had several scenarios figured out for the ending but I don't think any of them were correct. I'm glad they weren't and I'll happily leave the writing to women like DiAnn Mills to satisfy my curiosity.

I do want to mention my favorite character. This book just wouldn't be the same without Hawk. He elicited such a dedicated devotion, just as Christ is devoted to us as long as we'll have Him, and I found myself really drawn to him and his actions. He is the "perfect" character to balance out this book! :)

I appreciate how this book dealt with some difficult situations (you can't have outlaws and not have some immoral issues!) in a clean, Christian manner. I would recommend this book to young readers because of the beauty in which this book was written.

As for now, I'll have to be satisfied with this book. However, the next chance I get to acquire a DiAnn Mills book, I'll be snatching it up. I might have to make a Borders run even though I was just there a couple of days ago. :)
