Almost an Outlaw by Patricia Preston

She remembers him alright.  Just one quick kiss long ago and she hasn't seen him since.  Why is he back?

Carina Press and Net Galley provided me an ebook for review (thank you).  

Darcy is a young widow when Austin Cade rides back into town.  He's there looking for the James-Younger gang.  She's a relative to them and most likely knows where they are hanging out.  But she also has two Pinkerton agents shadowing her every move.

Darcy is riddled with guilt over the death of her husband.  She was the cause and has never forgiven herself for it.  He's a seasoned killer now travelling on the right side of the law. Ms. Preston does a very nice job of making both of characters believable and human.

The flow of the story is good, the plot is reasonable and the romance adds to flavor.

I enjoyed reading this book.  It's a bit of the old west brought back to life.

Get yourself a copy and check it out!

Happy reading.
