Jake by Beth Williamson (Devils on Horseback book 2)
Author's Website: http://www.bethwilliamson.com/
Jake Sheridan and the rest of the Devils on Horseback head in to the town of Tanger, Texas. Everyone in town is nervous by the arrival of strangers. Once there, the Devils are hired by the mayor to help rebuild this town that has been destroyed by a band of marauders. They find out that marauders have taken most of the women under 35.
The miller's daughter, Gabrielle Rinaldi, seems to be the only person in town who doesn't want the Devils around. But she's used to no one listening to her. Gabby is a strong woman and single-handedly attempts to run the broken down mill after her father was nearly killed by the marauders. Trust doesn't come easy but Gabby finds herself drawn to a charming Jake.
Jake's heart is lost to Gabby from day one but she tries to hold herself back. She's been through a couple bad relationships and is leery of being hurt again. Would Jake, who's always been considered a thief, steal Gabby's heart without giving anything back in return? But tragedy strikes the town once again and Gabby must help Jake fight to save the town.
I love the Devil's on Horseback. Beth Williamson has created a cast of characters that intrigues you and draws you in to the story. The story is fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Gabby and Jake are a perfect pair. She was just the type of woman to tame charming Jake. I know I will not be disappointed when I read the next book in the series, Zeke.
