When a tragic accident claims her husband's life, Jesse Santos must find a way to keep the ranch, the only home her 12-year-old son has ever known. The ranch hands have abandoned her, a gang of cutthroat ranchers want her land and an ancient Yaqui Indian insists a spirit has taken up residence in the house.

After a fifteen-year absence, her husband's brother, Coy, returns to his childhood home. He doesn't plan on staying, and he certainly doesn't intend to settle down with a widow and her son…no matter how pretty she is.

He's an outlaw, after all, and made a decision to put an end to his gun-slinging days long ago. Will his conscience let him walk away from family, or will his heart overrule his head?

Comes An Outlaw by Keta Diablo
Comes An Outlaw (Western Romance)Since the death of her husband, has a spirit moved into her home? Jesse is struggling, alone in a world where women have few rights, trying to hold on to the land and home where her young son has always known joy and love. With no help and people plotting to make her fail, there are those hoping to take her land, leaving them homeless. Meanwhile a wise Yaqui Indian claims a spirit is haunting her home. Only one who knows the ways and wisdom of the Yaqui would believe, but if the house is “haunted,” why?

He came home to his childhood land after fifteen years and a lifetime of regrets only to find his only family, his older brother is gone, leaving behind a beautiful young widow and son. Coy had no expectations of a joyous reunion, but family never turns it back on family. An outlaw, tired of being on the wrong side of the law, Coy also has no plans to stay and work the soil his brother loved.

There is something about this proud woman that stirs his heart, but when death knocks on the door, he must learn to believe in the spirits of the Yaqui and the strength of their powers. Do they want him to stay? Does he want to stay? Will Jesse accept his help after how he has acted? Can the love of a good woman change a darkened heart?

Keta Diablo’s Comes an Outlaw depicts the rugged life of those who dared to blaze trails into the wilderness and turn untamed land into a place called home. It tells of home, heart and the longing to belong while believing in the unbelievable.

Once again, Keta Diablo creates an atmosphere where the dust and back-breaking work of brave souls, comes to life around the magic of mystical spirits in a world tamed long ago.

I received this copy as part of The Good, the Bad and the Ghostly Anthology review.
