The Blackbird (Wings of the West Book 4)


WESTERN:  After surviving a heinous attack that left her walking with a cane, Tess Carlisle needs to find the whereabouts of her father, whom she hasn’t heard from for two years. However, Hank Carlisle’s world is civil. When bounty hunter, Cale Walker, makes a visit to Tess’s house, she knows that he’s just the man to help her find her father. With a resolute purpose of mind, she decides to accompany Cale in his pursuit, even though it might have her coming face to face with her attacker. But Tess encounters more than she bargained for when Cale awakens her dormant need for love.


This fourth book in the Wings of the West series stands alone and is a refreshing story, which takes place in the Arizona Territory in the late 1800s. Instilled with well-developed characters that are engaging and likeable, the plot flows smoothly and unfettered, grabbing the attention of the reader from the beginning to the end. There are a couple of areas that slow the pace, and some readers may become disconcerted with the use of interspersed Spanish words that are not accompanied by the English translation, but not enough to detract from the overall appeal of this well-crafted story. With dastardly villains, plenty of action, a strong heroine, surprising twists and turns, and a sexy cowboy, all underlined by a sensual love story, this historical western romance has something for everyone.
