Cowboys, Cattle, and Cutthroats is a Western Romance Event pick #westernromance #historicalromance

Title: Cowboys, Cattle, and Cutthroats

Author: Gini Rifkin

Genre: Historical Western Romance

Book Blurb:

No stranger to trouble, Nic's only concerns are his Stetson, his mule Sadie, and a long awaited chance at retribution. After gaining Ochessa’s trust, and taking the job she offers, life gets more complicated.

Back on the ranch in Colorado, Ochessa works as hard as any man. Then Nick tempts her into playing even harder as a woman—both are overwhelmed by their growing love for one another.

Weathering a stampede, a gully washer, and a pack of outlaws, they locate the killer. As Nic’s quest for justice, and Ochessa’s vendetta for Will playout, bullets fly... Not everybody’s gonna make it out alive.


“I’ve come for the job,” Nic said.

Ochessa hesitated only a moment. “I don’t need any more ranch hands.”

“Not a job, the job.” Nic retrieved the bounty poster from inside his shirt, leaned forward, and held it up in front of her face.

Of course. Naturally he would be offering a gun for hire, not a strong back for bending.

Re-folding the paper, he tucked it away in his back pocket. Several similar fliers were poking out of his saddlebag. He must have collected all the ones she

tacked up in town.

“It doesn’t say anything about expenses,” he continued.

“That’s because I don’t intend to pay any.”

“That should narrow down the applicants considerably.” His gaze settled on her lips. “Or are you planning to offer incentive of a more personal nature?”

“Listen, Breedlove. Don’t get your hopes up—or anything else. Whoever I hire can live and eat at the ranch for free. And they can stay at Will’s cabin if the

search takes them back to Kansas.”

He seemed disappointed. She didn’t care, or at least she shouldn’t care. What this man thought held no consequence for her. Being a drifter, he would most

likely ride out of her life as quickly and unexpectedly as he’d galloped into it.

“Well…” Nic urged the mule one step closer.

“Well, what?”

“Do I get the job or not?”
