About the Author
Descended from a long line of Texas ranchers, preachers, and teachers on one side and Kentucky horse thieves and moonshiners on the other, Kathleen Rice Adams had no choice but to become an outlaw. For the past thirty years, she’s stayed two steps ahead of a lynch mob as an award-winning news writer, editor, and columnist, covering everything from airline disasters, political scandals, and courtroom drama to emerging technologies, dog shows, and hauntings. She also has ghost-written or edited several non-fiction books. A Texan to the bone, when Kathleen’s not romancing antiheroes one protagonist at a time, she bows to the whims of three tiny canine tyrants. Find her on the web at KathleenRiceAdams.com.

Jessie buried her childhood love in a grave without his body, married his brother and had a child. Many years later her husband is dead, her sweetheart returns wanting answers she cannot give. There are trying times ahead as she goes through trying to work out her feelings, life with gunslingers, cattlemen with hot tempters who want to bring down a sheep farmer and a lawman who wants her heart.
Calhoun bitter by his brother betrayal gets shot and goes home to a surprise Jessie who thought he was dead. His life hasn’t been easy and is about to get tougher as he sees the only women he ever loved. It is to late to be the man he once was he can only try to protect the lady he loves. He has a job to do as a hired gun and do it he will at all cost but one Jessie will have what she needs and then he will leave broken hearted for sure.
I loved the twists and turns the author gives us with a few surprises. Her writing style is easy to follow. This was a book I had trouble putting down. She knows her history well as she tells a story that could have been right out of the history pages. The author paints a story so real you can almost smell the flowers and hear the birds. You feel the emotions of some wonderful characters they almost feel real. Lawman to outlaw you are going to love them. There are wonderful support characters these are people who fight to keep what is theirs and the men who take what they want. As I read I cheer for so many and are torn between who will win Jessie hand. This story has a touching ending that will almost bring tears to your eyes. The author gives you so much heartbreak, pain and sorrow that you wonder if things will work out. Then she gives you a wonderful HEA but you still wonder if it would have went the other way how things might have ended. Ms. Adams has me hooked for the first page to the last leaving me with a few OHs and a lot of smiles and laughs along the way. I look forward to reading more of her wonderful work. If you haven’t read any of her books you are missing out with a wonderful powerful story of long ago which is a pretty clean read.
This is the first book that I have read by Kathleen Rice Adams and it was great. It was a romance but it also had suspense and comedy to it also. The story pulled me in by the end of the first chapter and I was in it until the very end. I would recommend this book if you like romance.
The details in it made it so real you could smell the lavender and hear the mockingbirds. You could also cringe at the fear that a few of the characters threw at you and also feel the love the emotion that others had to share.
This would make a beautiful exciting movie that would have you on the end of your seat with a box of tissues by your side.
Jessie is a strong beautiful woman that has held the love in her heart for a man that has been dead for 16 years, or has he? She is trying to hold a ranch together in a man's world with a heart that aches from memories of a past love.
Calhoun, a gunslinger, with cold eyes and heart from the war and all the killing that happened. His heart isn't dead though, he had left that with a woman years ago . Will it still be safe or is he to hard and cold to ever know the smell of lavender and the sound of mockingbirds again.
Will fate return their heart back to them or will they be gone forever in The Prodigal Gun?
