Similar to my last book, CHASING CLOVERS this new one I'm working on is also a Historical Western Romance.
Set in 1880, Bounty Hunter and Half Breed,Otakatay is driven by a promise he made years ago. Pushed to take a job killing innocent women, he needs one more scalp in order to fulfill his promise.
But what will he do when he discovers he has feelings for his last victim?
Will he kill her, or throw away everything he's worked so hard to accomplish?
The slice from his blade made no sound, but the dead body as it hit the ground did. With no time to stop, he made his way through the dark tunnel, and reached the ladder. He’d been 200 feet below ground for over a week. No food and little water had his head spinning. He stared up the ladder. He’d have to climb it, and it wasn’t going to be easy. He wiped the bloody blade on his torn pants, and placed it between his teeth. Scraped knuckles and unwashed hands gripped the wooden rung. The earth swayed. He closed his eyes, and forced the spinning in his head to cease. One thin bronzed leg lifted, and trembled as it came down. He waited until his leg stopped shaking before he took another step. Each one resulted in pain, but was paired with determination. He reached the top much more quickly than he thought it would take. The sky was black. The air was cool, and fresh. Thank goodness it was fresh.
