Borrowed Guns

Borrowed GunsAs the result of a chance meeting, aging U.S. Marshal Alistair B. Taggart recruits middle-aged blacksmith John McKinney as his deputy. Out of the marshal's final act of mentoring, a steadfast friendship develops between the two men.

Six years later, the elderly Taggart is eyeing the end of his career as McKinney settles into his new job as sheriff of Winfield, Kansas. The quiet McKinney regrets missing out on helping his eighty-one-year-old friend tame the frontier in its wilder days.

But fate often lays bare the foolishness of regrets, and Sheriff John McKinney is about to face the biggest challenges of his life, both of which hold life and death consequences for him and Marshal Taggart.

Only friendship stands between them and a bullet.

Trouble at Timber Ridge

Trouble at Timber RidgeA cry for help, from a past he thought he'd left behind...

Harlan Shea never planned to set foot in Timber Ridge again. Not after the shoot-out that had taken the lives of friends and brought the wrath of his employer down upon his head.

Now, his old boss is begging for his services once again.

Cattle shipment after cattle shipment is disappearing without a trace. Loaded onto freight trains, not a head has arrived at its destination.

Who is behind the elaborate scheme? Can Shea uncover it, before it's too late to make a difference? Shea has a proud history of fighting rustlers, but will he be able to serve under the very man who fired him? Can he put his past behind him, or is his destiny inevitable?

Shea returns to find a changed Timber Ridge, where the telegraph and railroad line reign supreme, where ghosts from the past lie in wait around every corner, and where the haunting eyes of a mysterious young girl may just be his undoing.

Silence Rides Alone

Silence Rides AloneWhile J.T. Silence is away at war, a man he trusts betrays him. When Silence returns, he finds his wife murdered. Now, he’s out for vengeance—and he intends to kill Silas Brady for what he’s done, no matter how long it takes to find him.

A wealthy rancher, Frank Decker, buys Brady’s willingness to use a gun. But Silence knows Brady can’t hide forever, and when the man from his past crosses him again, he takes action.

The killing of an entire Jewish family on their way to settle their claim, and violent threats against Silence’s old friends, add up to more than a coincidence. When Silence discovers the plan the railroad has to lay track across the very land the settlers were killed for, he knows he has to see Decker and his henchman, Brady, dead.

With only a young emigrant boy and Judge Henderson’s apprentice to help him, Silence vows to see the boy claim his land his family gave their lives for—but first, he’s got to kill Brady and Decker. And though Silence Rides Alone, there’s a young woman who is determined to do what she can to help the man she loves.
