Historical Western Romance
Short Story/7500 words
Originally published by The Wild Rose Press
Addie McKenna finished digging the grave at sundown. She had to get Mattie in the ground tonight; tomorrow would be another scorcher. As Addie climbed from the grave, the dog barked a warning. A stranger driving a buckboard loomed from the shadows. As he came nearer, Addie's breath caught. Roan McLeod! She kept her face blank. He was a married man.
Roan McLeod looked at Addie McKenna, alone beside the open grave. Four months since he'd seen her. His nights had been haunted by this red-haired girl, haunted by forbidden images of them together as he opened his mouth on Addie's and removed her clothes. Those were shameful thoughts for a man who had buried his wife and daughter only ten days ago.
"Ms. Reeve's fascination with the 'old west' and the men and women who displayed such strong sense of spirits in the face of uncertain futures shines through the pages of this tale." Romance Junkies Reviews
"Ms. Reeves has gripped me in the past with another of her other works and this is just another peg in the wall as far as I am concerned, for an author who really knows how to create a tale with characters and a plot that really tugs on the heart strings." Seriously Reviewed
