A Stolen Heart
After a devastating event that changes both their lives, Alexandra and her brother Hugh turn to stealing in order to get revenge on the man who destroyed their lives. But neither of them are prepared for the day when everything changes, and the lawless life they’ve been carrying out is irrevocably altered.
When he agreed to accompany the shipment of money into Kansas for his latest benefactor, Jarett never thought anyone would dare to try to steal it from him. He realizes he was greatly mistaken when he comes face to face with two thieves, and the robbery goes horribly wrong. Now on the hunt for the boy who shot him, Jarett is determined to uncover the bandits and have his revenge before moving further west.
Jarett isn’t ready for the stone wall he comes face to face with when dealing with the townspeople though. Nor is he prepared for the enigmatic Alexandra Harris when she appears in the mercantile. Determined to get closer to Alexandra, he’s thrown off by her insistent refusal of him. Fighting against her growing attraction to a man she knows would prefer to see her hung if he uncovered the truth, Alexandra tries to stay far away from Jarett. The more they are forced together though, the more she realizes that the man she considers her enemy may be the only one who could save her ravaged heart…
If he doesn’t kill her first.

I haven't read an historical be for a long time but when I saw this one I decided to buy it and have a read. I am so glad that I did as it was an excellent read. The characters were strong and engaging, they drew you in from the very beginning. The story flowed really well and at no point was I bored. Jarrett and Alex were perfect together and their journey together was a delight to enjoy. I hope to read more about the other characters.
I normally do not read anything but Paranormal but anything Brenda K Davies writes, I WILL read, without even glancing at the blurb! Alex and Jarrett are perfect together.I have to say, I would love for Hugh to get his own story.. there was just something about him that peeked my interest... I loved the whole wild wild west theme.. No matter what Genre you normally read I HIGHLY suggest you pick this up...
