When Ella realizes that her mysterious guest, Travis, has a deadly past, she has to come to terms that it may just be the cause of her husband’s untimely death.

Ella Gilby lost her husband to the perils of living in the wilderness of the new frontier. When her son finds a wounded man in the barn, she does what any Christian woman would do for a needy soul. She takes him in until he’s able to move on, but never expects the attraction to blossom between them.

With Death comes Life…

Ella’s husband was shot dead on the frontier of their farm. The very same night she finds an outlaw, Travis clinging to life. She heals him and gives him a place in her home in hope that he will be able to tell her who killed her husband but alas, he has lost his memory. Travis helps Ella and her son around the farm in return for room and board. In the meantime, the attraction between them blossoms into a relationship strong and sturdy enough to withstand the truth of Travis’s past and her dead husband’s killer.

I am very much in love with how this story turned out…The way a simple storyline was told, I fell into the world that was created. This is a short story, but it didn’t feel like it. The story was complete and full.

An Outlaw in Her Bed is set on a farm, so I expected some amount of farm work to be told and shown and I wasn’t disappointed. There was humor laced into the everyday work that was done. That was surprising to me but very much appreciated considering how the story begins.

This is a perfect short story for anyone who wants to read a historical but doesn’t have time for a full length novel.


  1. This sounds like an intriguing romance. 🙂
