Description
One for the Mojave Kid
Few men were as deadly or troublesome with a gun as the Mohave Kid. Ab Kale, marshal of Hinkley, had warned the Kid to stay away from his town. Even as he trained his own adopted son, Riley, to handle a gun, he worried for both of them. He knew the Kid was the bloodthirsty sort who would one day force a showdown. But he couldn t know when or prepare Riley for the test of his young life.
Lonigan

The ranch hands are uneasy with Ives's place on the drive, but the money is desperately needed and there's no time to wait for Lonigan. After days on the trail with no sign of water, weak cattle, and restless men, Ruth can t help but have second thoughts about the seemingly trustworthy Ives. When he suddenly proposes and asks for more than her hand in marriage, Ruth knows she has to find out what he's really up to and fast.
