The Sheriffs of Savage Wells

2016 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Romance (Adult Fiction)

Savage Wells, Wyoming, isn’t the easiest place to call home. Frontier beauty Paisley Bell would know. She’s the town’s acting sheriff, dispensing justice with one hand while she cares for her aging father with the other. She’s so busy saving the day that she forgets she’s a woman; who has time to think about romance when she’s keeping the world together?

Paisley is suitably sassy, and Sarah M. Eden gives her heroine some excellent cowgirl skills, along with a few soft edges, too. “She popped off one shot after another, not bothering to double-check her aim, dropping all five bottles in the length of a breath.” Her femininity goes by the wayside until Cade O’Brien rides in to take her sheriff’s badge. Sparks fly, and beneath Cade and Paisley’s rivalry, attraction is ignited.

Savage Wells is a perfect Western backdrop for a battle of the sexes as Cade and Paisley compete for the job with feats of strength, tracking, and tailoring. Peppered with bootleggers, bank robbers, Canadians, and gamblers, The Sheriffs of Savage Wells is a sweet summer read, a well crafted Western that keeps the pages turning.
