Colonel Utah Blaine, held captive by the Army of the Revolution, broke out of jail and headed north from Mexico with nothing but the clothes on his back. Then he found new trouble struggling at the end of a noose - and stepped in just in time to save the life of a Texas rancher. The would-be executioners were the rancher’s own men, looking to steal his land.
Now Utah has a unique proposition: Have the wealthy Texan play dead, introduce himself as the spread’s new foreman, and take care of the outlaws one by one. The wage to fight another man’s war? A hundred a month plus expenses. The cost of falling in love while he earns that wage? It wasn’t exactly part of the original agreement, but Utah will soon find out–unless the bad guys get to him first.

I loved this book. It is a classic western tale told with humor and knowledge of the land and people of the time. The love story is sweet and real. I chose this book because I can trust Lois Lamour to have a great story that is clean and fun to read.
L'Amour westerns are always a good listen.
Utah is a very good character and anyone wanting to listen to a western, this is a good choice.
Nice job done by narrator.
Interest and pace of book was well worth the credit.
