ABOUT THE BOOK
Sage Morrow had it all: life on a beautiful Colorado ranch, a husband who adored her, and a baby on the way. Until five ruthless gunmen rode up to their ranch and changed her life forever. Now Sage is a bounty hunter bent on retribution.
Accompanied only by her majestic hawk, she travels throughout the Rocky Mountains in search of injustice, determined to stamp it out wherever it’s found. The stakes are raised when two young boys are kidnapped and Sage is forced to work with Marshall Parker Timmons to rescue them. But Sage may ultimately get more than she bargained for.
In this exciting historical romance set in the late 1800s, murder, intrigue, kidnapping, and questions of faith will keep you in suspense until the final pages.

I have always enjoyed any book by DiAnn Mills but have to admit a special weakness for her westerns. A Woman Called Sage exceeded my expectations!
Both Sage and Parker are strong characters who for reasons of their own are not interested in a relationship with anyone. When circumstances force them to work together to rescue two young boys and to apprehend a gang of outlaws, they each do so reluctantly because there is no other choice. By now you can probably guess that there will be a little romance in spite of their intentions.
A Woman Called Sage is a fast moving story with lots of action and suspense. I loved the characters and found the concept of a woman bounty hunter to be unique and interesting. It is a story of grace and mercy and teaches a vital lesson about judging others. I enjoyed A Woman Called Sage and recommend it to all who enjoy a good historical western tale.
