Can an outlaw really be trusted?

It’s been a while since I participated in Six Sentence Sunday, but I’m back with six from my latest historical western romance. This is Cade’s story from the first short story/novella (I’m never sure what to call it) of a trilogy about The Morgans of Rocky Ridge, and will be available on Amazon later today or tomorrow.

“Because I give you my word.”
“And I should believe the word of an outlaw?”
He stared at her for a long moment. “This outlaw, yes.”
A strange sensation fluttered through her, as if a hummingbird had taken wing deep inside her.

I’d love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment. Thanks for dropping by, and don’t forget to check out the other authors at
