Wilder Hearts

Wilder Hearts
Lilly Gayle
May 2016

Writing about the outlaw, Jake the Snake, could be the opportunity of a lifetime—if it doesn’t get her killed. 

When Ellie Wilder takes her sister from their grandfather's home, she's determined to put her family back together and write of their adventures. Then she runs into Jacob Harper, a man who resembles Jake the Snake, a notorious outlaw who once rode with Billy the Kid. Is it possible the outlaw who escaped justice has mended his ways? Or is the handsome Mr. Harper now murdering servant girls in Austin? Finding out the truth could be the journalistic opportunity of a lifetime. 

Former Texas Ranger Jake Harper has returned to Texas to help solve the Servant Girl Annihilator murders. But when a similar murder occurs in Harmony, Texas, Jake goes undercover as Jake the Snake to find a connection between the series of brutal murders. Then Ellie Wilder shows up. Her snooping could blow his cover and get her killed, but Ellie soon becomes a bigger threat to his heart than his investigation. 

Between The Pages 
An enjoyable western story with a good mystery attached. The beginning was slow to grab my attention, but the pace picks up and the plot pulls you in. The author even throws in some of history’s well known cowboys to peak your interest. Strong characters and the western setting make this story a good read.
