OUTLAW HEARTS is the first book in my "Outlaw" series. It begins the family saga set around Jake Harkner, a wanted man in OUTLAW HEARTS, and the woman who changes his life (Miranda Hayes Harkner). These books compose an unforgettable love story that covers over 30 years and includes stories surrounding Jake's children and grandchildren, but the central figures in all the stories are Jake and his "Randy."
Jake Harkner is a known gunman and a force few men care to go up against. Every decision he makes is spurred by a horribly abusive childhood that haunts Jake his entire life. He is a devoted husband and father and grandfather, and his fierce defense of his family (who are often threatened because of Jake's past), often leads Jake to the brink of going back to prison. Together, through all their married years, Randy remains a strong, devoted wife who helps Jake and their son Lloyd build a ranching empire once Jake is finished with his job as a U.S. Marshal in Book #2, DO NOT FORSAKE ME.
