     Noah has made too many mistakes with Abby to have any hope of getting her back. Even with the changes in her life, including the distance she’s built with her father, he can’t keep himself from believing he’ll never be good enough to claim her.

     Unexpected dangers, including a twist of fate for Abby, change both their lives, making the tentative steps they’ve taken to build a relationship a distant hope. As Noah battles his past as well as the threats to Abby, she fights for a future with the only man she will ever love.

“The Redemption Mountain series is as good as historical romance gets—vivid settings, memorable characters, love, and lots at stake. Shirleen Davies knows how to bring the old west to life. You feel as if you've traveled, with the characters, to the frontier. I hope there will be more to come!” Book Review

 

He thought he’d found a quiet life…

Cash Coulter settled into a life far removed from his days of fighting for the South and crossing the country as a bounty hunter. Now a deputy sheriff, Cash wants nothing more than to buy some land, raise cattle, and build a simple life in the frontier town of Splendor, Montana. But his whole world shifts when his gaze lands on the most captivating woman he’s ever seen. And the feeling appears to be mutual.

But nothing is as it seems…

Alison McGrath moved from her home in Kentucky to the rugged mountains of Montana for one reason—to find the man responsible for murdering her brother. Despite using a false identity to avoid any tie to her brother’s name, the citizens of Splendor have no intention of sharing their knowledge about the bank robbery which killed her only sibling. Alison knows her circle of lies can’t end well, and her growing for Cash threatens to weaken the revenge which drives her.

And the troubles are mounting…

There is danger surrounding them both—men who seek vengeance as a way to silence the past…by any means necessary.

Survivor Pass is book five in the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series. It is a full length novel with an HEA.

 Deep River, Book Seven, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

“Every book of Shirleen's never fails to draw me in and make it impossible to put down until I devour it!” Avid Reader

Beauregard Davis, ex-Confederate Captain and bounty hunter, has put his past behind him to focus on his future. He’s a lawman with a purpose and a dream—do his job to the best of his abilities, and build a life with the woman he loves. Beau believes his life couldn’t be better…until the day she boards a stagecoach, leaving him behind.

Caroline Iverson has a dream she won’t deny. Traveling west, she expects to experience adventure. Instead, Caro finds a good man and unanticipated love. She never imagines the difficult decision to leave him behind would come back to haunt her.

After months of burying his pain in alcohol, Beau emerges stronger, determined to concentrate on a future without Caro. Doing his best to forget the past, he focuses his energy on work and preparing to build a home.

He never expected her to return, looking to recapture the love the two once shared.

Adding to Beau’s concerns, two threats hang over him—outlaws have targeted his town, and he’s being tracked by unidentified foes.

Keeping the town, Caro, and himself safe are his main priorities. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect them. Guarding his heart is another matter.

How does a man ignore an all-consuming love without exposing himself to a threat worse than the physical dangers he already faces?

His new life is predictable and peaceful…until a feisty young woman creates chaos in his orderly existence.

Rosemary Thayer has overcome more than one obstacle to achieve her dream of becoming a nurse. After a rough start, the people of Redemption’s Edge have accepted her into their family—all except the rude and arrogant foreman who seems to enjoy making her life miserable. Soon, she’ll have earned enough to leave the ranch for a place of her own.

But trouble continues to plague Rosemary. The unwelcome news of an escaped convict threatens to stall her plans of an independent life.

After months of anticipating her departure, Dirk is given an assignment he doesn’t want, but can’t turn down. Guard Rosemary from not one, but two possible threats. Could his life get any more complicated?

The last person she wants disrupting her future is now a part of it—every day, morning and night.

Not only is the escaped convict certain to come calling, another danger is inching its way toward Splendor, threatening young women, and no one can identify the attacker.

Forsaken Falls, Book Nine, Redemption Mountain Historical Western Romance Series

Wyatt Jackson has lost everything. Successful in his role as a soldier, he can no longer find a home in the region he fought so hard to save. Sick and on the edge of starvation, he journeys west, searching for the one man who might help him. A deputy in Splendor, Montana.

Nora Evans has never found a place to call home. The illegitimate outcast of a wealthy New York family, her father sends her west to a step-brother who has no knowledge of her existence. Considering herself a spinster at twenty-nine, she focuses on building a new life, believing love and marriage hold no place in her future. Not even to the handsome, younger ranch hand she can’t push from her thoughts.

Accepting a position at Redemption’s Edge, Wyatt uses the one skill he perfected before the war—training horses. It’s his gift, and he loves the work. There’s no room for romance, even if he can’t stay away from the beautiful sister of the town’s sheriff.

Nora tries hard to ignore the intense desire she feels when Wyatt is near. It’s especially difficult when his continued attention gives her hope she’d long thought buried.

Aside from their own misgivings, another menace lurks close by, threatening Nora, Wyatt, and the people they care about. Men who’d love nothing more than to see him dead prowl the lands around Splendor, biding their time, waiting to exact revenge.

As much as they yearn for each other, their personal pasts stand in the way. But the bigger obstacle may be the one they don’t see. A danger perpetrated by men who can’t leave the war behind.

Supper. That’s all Mack wants, but the obstinate woman refuses all his invitations—until one evening when he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Their first supper together changes everything.
