Publisher's Summary

A twist of fate!

William Cook enjoyed serving the town as a lawman until a tragic accident took everything he loved. Wanting to leave his past behind, he turns to bounty hunting, enjoying the constant distraction - and the money isn’t too bad either. When he suffers a life-threatening injury, he is forced to stay put for longer than he is used to doing. The woman who tends his wounds intrigues him, but he isn’t looking for love after what happened the first time.

Emma Stewart recently lost her husband and has moved back in with her widowed father, the town doctor. While she likes helping him heal the sick, she still longs for a family of her own, so no one is more surprised than she is when she starts to develop feeling for the bounty hunter, who hides his heart of gold behind a rugged exterior.

Can Emma offer William a reason to stay? Can William find a way to heal from his broken past to start a future with Emma? Or will a haunting secret take away all the possibilities of this budding romance?

Note: Each book in The Lawkeepers series is a stand-alone book, a mini-series of sorts, and you can listen to them in any order.

This is book 1 of William and Emma's story. Tells how the meet and how much Emma did not care for his line of work and possibly even him.
I receive books and audio books from the author or publisher for free for me to enjoy. I'm not required to write a positive review or any review but freely give my honest opinion.

Really good book!

I really enjoyed this book! The bounty hunter had issues after his wife was killed and the girl was sad after her husband was killed. While she was nursing him after he was shot they got to know each other a little. The reader was pretty good. I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance and enjoys listening to their books!

Second chance at love

I was given a copy of this audio book for an honest review. This is a sweet, clean, historical romance with wonderful, thought out characters. The narrator was great. I recommend listening to this audio book as well as the series by Lorana Hoopes.

Old fashioned western romance

I got several chapters in and just couldn't find myself invested enough to keep listening. It's the style of writing you would find in older novels, it's just not my cup of tea. But it's clean and I'm sure a good story if you enjoy ones like it. And Though this one by Ms. Hoopes wasn't great for me , I am really enjoying her Men of Fire Beach series, more modern and up my alley with suspense, intrigue and romance. So I guess it's just about what you enjoy most. Ms. Hoopes is a good storyteller.

Can they forgive each other?

I enjoyed this story. Mr. Doolittle does a great job of changing his voice to fit the characters. William & Emma have obstacles to overcome in order to be together including forgiveness. A sweet, clean romance story.

An enjoyable short story


• This was a western Christian short story.
• The characters had pleasant personalities, but lacked depth. This may be due to the short length of this story.
• The narrator had a pleasant voice and I enjoyed the story.
• This story had a satisfying ending.
• I did not find this western Christian historical romance preachy. But it is very religous. Religion was just a natural part of the characters' lives.

At my request, I was given a free copy of this audiobook from the author. I have voluntarily left my review and my opinions were my own.

Clean, sweet Christian Old-West Romance

Story: 3 stars

A sweet, quick story about two widowed people who find love again. Good Christian values and teachings.

Narration: 3.5 stars

The narrator has a nice authentically-western -sounding voice. He did well with the women’s voices and did ok on the little girl’s voice (can any adult really do justice to a little girl’s voice? I have yet to hear it accomplished in an audiobook.) I’d happily listen to him narrate again.

*poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

"A Good Lesson In The Storyline"❣

The author Lorana Hoopes had a good theme to the story with a positive lesson to learn, but I felt she stumbled along the road at times. I still received my HEA that I look for at the end of a romantic novel, it was considered a "Clean Romance" so the passion was tap warm.

The narrator Ted Doolittle was new to me. He handled the variety of character's voices with ease, that's why I gave him 5-🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for his performance. I look forward to hearing him again in future novels.

I would recommend, "Lawfully Justified: Christian Romance Historical," to others.
