Product Description:

"Perfectly crafted"—PW (starred review)
Jo Goodman, a premier writer of western romance and the author of In Want of a Wife, is back with a sensational new novel for fans of Linda Lael Miller and Joan Johnston. 
He’s got a job to do…

Former army cavalryman Quill McKenna takes pride in protecting the most powerful man in Stonechurch, Colorado: Mr. Ramsey Stonechurch himself. But the mine owner has enemies, and after several threats on his life, mines, and family, Quill decides to hire someone to help guard the boss’s daughter. Only problem is the uncontrollable attraction he feels toward the fiery-haired woman who takes the job. 
…but she’s a piece of work. 
Calico Nash has more knowledge of scouting and shooting than cross-stitching, but she agrees to pose as Ann’s private tutor while protecting her. But between her growing attraction to Quill and the escalating threats against the Stonechurches, Calico will soon have a choice to make—hang on to her hard-won independence or put her faith in Quill to create the kind of happy ending she never imagined…



Quill McKenna has been hired to protect mine owner Ramsey Stonechurch, but as things turn out, Stonechurch’s daughter, Ann, is in need of the same protection. Quill immediately thinks of hiring Calico Nash, a bounty hunter he has recently met, to take on the job. Calico is a crack shot, a no-nonsense, take charge….woman.

Quill and Calico are kept busy with their responsibilities and the strain of keep various subterfuges going, but not so busy that their mutual attraction goes unnoticed. That changes, however, as the stakes in their separate ventures change – and what were vague suppositions turn into real threats. Quill and Calico are a united front, and that’s a good thing, because it’s going to take all of their combined energy to keep the Stonechurch family safe, especially when they determine that it’s a long-held grudge that lies at the heart of matters.

Jo Goodman has become a go-to author for historical western romance, and This Gun for Hire is a perfect example of why. Goodman sets the reader down in 1888 Colorado without a backward glance, deftly adding details that keep the setting alive and interesting without bogging down the plot. The playfulness between Quill and Calico adds much to the story, including a foundation for the steamy relationship that ensues. The suspenseful aspects of the plot are dynamic, and lead to a fast-paced and thrilling conclusion. This Gun for Hire is the best of good old-fashioned western romance, a topnotch story for fans of the genre and those new to it as well. Yippie ki-yay!
