On the run from her ex-lover...
Jilted by a no-show husband...
And now mistaken for a whore in the Diamond Back Saloon...
Abigail Thornton doesn’t think things can get any worse. That is until a single slap to a man’s face starts a barroom brawl that lands her in the last place she expected to be.
Town Marshal Morgan Avery wants nothing more than to wash away the trail-dust and sleep for a week, preferably with a soft, willing woman by his side. Instead, he gets Abigail Thornton – all one hundred pounds of her thrust at him seconds before a fist connects with his face. Breaking up the fight takes more effort than he wants to admit and when the last man falls he finds Abigail still standing and not looking the least bit contrite.
Throwing her into the town jail for the night would salve his wounded pride and then he will let her go. Or that was the plan. When morning comes he finds himself oddly reluctant to do so. Miss Thornton is hiding something and he aims to find out what, even if he has to bed her to do so. But will one night in her bed be enough?
The Lawman is book #1 in the Willow Creek Series. Each book can be read as a stand alone story.
Abigail Thornton is on the run. The moment she walks into the Diamond Black Saloon she starts causing trouble. A fight leads her into the arms of the town Marshall, Morgan Avery. The Marshall doesn't believe her story and places her in jail. The moment these two meet, the sparks begin to fly.
Abigail isn't your typical female. She stands up to Morgan and fights for her corner. I found The Lawman a really enjoyable read. the scenes between Morgan and Abigail were steamy and added to their growing chemistry. I thought the scene where they got married was funny and I couldn't stop laughing through it.
Lily Graison is a new author to me and she's certainly made an impression with this story. It was really well written and thoroughly enjoyable.
