"The Montana Gallagher Collection is adventurous and romantic with scenes that transport you into the wild west."
"This series is spell-binding. Once you start it you cannot put it down."
"A good story can have a little bit of romance, a little bit of adventure, and a little bit of mystery all rolled up into one. Ms. McClintock’s Gallagher’s Hope delivers all that and more."
—A Book Lover's Library
"I can’t get enough of this Gallagher family. This book is as action packed as the first one and I can’t wait to read number three. The challenges they face, the strange way they meet their spouses & the trials they overcome for love and family and land. Highly recommend reading it."
"Very strong characters and storyline. This story shows the strength of family love and how it can overcome anything thrown at them. The Gallagher brothers face an old foe and try to protect their families. Gabriel faces not only the old foe but some trouble his new wife faces. I would definitely recommend this book to any reader of western genre. A page Turner from start to finish."
I do hope you had a chance to enjoy Ethan and Brenna's story in Gallagher's Pride. You would have met Gabriel, the charming one in the family. It was with great pleasure that Gabriel came back in this story. You'll have a chance to see another side of this Gallagher, and I love him all the more for it. Isabelle is a sweet girl of French descent from the South. She and her little brother tug at the heart, and the way Gabriel steps up to be exactly who they need surprised even me. The adventure, danger, and romance of the Gallaghers continue. Thank you for joining us.
Be well, be kind, and enjoy!
Rousseau Mansion, New Orleans—October 1883
NOTHING EXISTED OF THE life she had known.
Her slender arm wrapped around the little boy’s shoulder and pulled him closer to her side. She could feel his slight trembling and wished more than anything that she could take away his sadness. They were alone in the world. They had each other, and she prayed that would be enough for them both.
They stood and listened as the priest gave the final blessing, and two men lowered the caskets into the ground. The few other mourners who had been kind enough to attend the funeral asked her to leave with them, but she needed the closure. She needed her eyes to see what her heart refused to accept. “An unfortunate affair,” everyone called the incident, for it wasn’t every day that a man murdered his wife and then shot himself. Isabelle wished not to think on the possible reasons why, but she couldn’t seem to help herself. She never imagined her family to be anything but happy. Their father’s death, however, revealed the truth. No one spoke of it with them, of course, but the lawyer had made the situation quite clear.
They were penniless.
