Courtship of Cade Kolby

Lori Copeland / Author Avon Books $5.99 (377p) ISBN 978-0-380-

Historical romance author Copeland (Angel Face and Amazing Grace) has a winner in this crisply written, sweetly sentimental tale of love lost and found. Red-haired Zoe Bradshaw has never forgotten Cade Kolby, who loved and left her to become a legendary bounty hunter. Now, 17 years later, Cade's sister Addy dies, leaving him her four adorable children. But Zoe wants them, and a tug-of-war, and hearts, ensues. Complicating matters further are Zoe and Cade's rekindled passion; the formidable great-aunt Laticia (who also wants the children); villainous outlaw Hart McGill, out for revenge; and the good folk of Winterborn, Kans., determined to stand by their own to the last bloody gunfight on the streets.
