Erika Vetsch is an author who is fairly new to me but recently I have run across several of her novels and love them. If you know me at all, you know I have added yet another favorite author to my ever-growing list which makes it increasingly difficult to keep up with all their books I want to read. You can bet I will try my best to make room on my calendar to read hers.

The premise of “The Bounty Hunter’s Baby” is quite interesting. The story begins with the rugged bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort finally catching up with the outlaw he has been tracking for quite some time but once again he makes his escape. Only this time it is because Thomas chooses to give up the chase to help the young woman with the outlaw deliver her baby then doing what he can to save that baby when his mother dies. Knowing he is not equipped to take care of a baby, he takes it to the only person he knows in the area who might help. When he reaches Esther Jensen’s home, he discovers that nothing is the same as when he left several years before.

I absolutely loved “The Bounty Hunter’s Baby”. Thomas was the perfect hero even if Esther had difficulty trusting him after the way he had broken her heart. The story developed naturally and I grew to like Thomas even more with each chapter. It was fun watching how Esther eased her defenses as Thomas proved himself trustworthy over and over. This was not the typical western romance and I hope the author will be writing more in this vein.

If you enjoy western romances and are willing to try a Love Inspired novel, “The Bounty Hunter’s Baby” would be an excellent choice.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book that was provided by the author. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.


Brought Together by a Baby 

Bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort has no problem handling outlaws, but when he’s left with a criminal’s baby to care for, he’s in over his head. And the only person he can think of to ask for help is Esther Jensen, the woman whose heart he broke when he left town. But can he convince her to put aside the past until he tracks down the baby’s outlaw father?

Esther is ready to run Thomas off her Texas ranch—until she spies the abandoned newborn in his arms. Soon, working together to care for the precious babe stirs old hopes of a family. With trouble heading to their door, they could overcome it together—if she’ll entrust her wary heart to this sweet, second-chance family…
