Gage followed Maverick to the open kitchen on the other side of the large room. “Between you and me,” Gage said in a low voice. “How bad is it?”
Maverick crossed his arms and leaned against the counter. “It’s not good. Riley is wanted for questioning in two murders.”
“Can’t say I’m surprised about that. I know she didn’t kill the sheriff, though. I was right there when it happened. Is she a suspect?”
“The body was found locked in her house. I’d say they’re pretty damn interested in her story. What about the other murder? William Lawton. Your brother?”
“Billy. She didn’t do it. Have they picked him up yet?”
“They’re taking care of him. I’m sorry for your loss.”
Gage opened the fridge and managed to stop short of grabbing a beer. He swore and pressed his forehead to the cool metal. The demons he thought long buried were circling. He thought of Riley, and his arms already felt empty without her.
God help him if the truth came out now.
“Unforgiven has a lot of heat, whirlwind action and a plot twists that comes out of no where and deliever a blow to the gut.” – Amazon review from reader Carrie-Lynn
Riley Beckett’s past just came back to haunt her . . . and this time, he’s got a gun.
When Gage Lawton finds his brother shot dead on his back porch, every shred of evidence points to one person: Gage’s former lover, Riley. He and she didn’t part ways on good terms, and he’s not planning to rekindle anything now–not when he’s got a revolver pointed at her head and a finger on the trigger.
A year after Riley swore she and Gage were over, he returns in a hail of gunfire. One look into those achingly familiar blue eyes and she knows how wrong she was to let him go, but now far more than their heated past stands in the way. A twist of fate puts them in the crosshairs of a killer, leaving Riley with two slim options: trust her greatest betrayer or face a murderer on her own.
