Summary: A burned out stagecoach lies on its side, the victim of an Indian raid. There’s a name on the coach manifest that makes Joe Cartwright’s heart stand still.

Rated M. The story is probably a PG-13 one, but for safety sake – and for the sake of one heavy duty romantic scene – I am calling it ‘M’. Contained in that PG-13 rating would be western brutality and violence, and torture. (101,760 words)

Summary: A sequel to Prodigal Sons with some of the characters from that story. When Adam receives an urgent telegram, calling in a marker, he has no idea what he is riding into. A tale of brothers and the bonds that hold them together, no matter what comes against them. This story does go into OC territory, but it all ties in with our favourite family along the way.
