    Anna Devlin, a recently jilted bounty hunter is a modern woman from the twenty-first century. She is anxious for the hearing that will reinstate her law enforcement career, but an encounter with a strange Native American woman sends Anna back in time to the year 1870. Federal Marshal Wesley Shannon of Denton, Kansas, has no idea where this woman with the strange clothing and way of speaking came from. Since he fights his own inner demons, the last thing he needs is an attraction to a woman who has given him no clear idea who she is. But when danger arrives in the form of stagecoach hold ups where drivers and passengers are being killed, Anna torments Wes with plans to help him bring in the outlaws. Will Wes be able to keep Anna out of harm’s way, or will his attraction to her distract him enough that they are both in danger?

    My take on this book:
    Imagine being a modern woman living in 2013, and then finding yourself transported back to 1870 what a culture shock that would be, but that's just what happens to Anna Devlin, a modern day bounty hunter who has more than her fair share of personal issues, but when she finds herself back in time she faces a whole new set of problems, and the first question is will she ever find her way back, but once the story gets rolling and she meets Wesley Shannon I started wondering if she would even want to return to 2013!

    One of my favorite genre's to read is historical fiction especially the time period around the civil war so this book was a great choice for me, the time travel twist was an enjoyable added bonus that really revved up the story for me!  It's easy to see that the author certainly did her research where the old west was concerned because she easily drew me in making me feel as if I had traveled back in time right along with Anna.Speaking of Anna I loved her character and found her so easy to connect with. It was interesting to see modern day Anna dropped into a totally different mindset in regards to women's roles! I will admit I found myself laughing on a few occasions as she adjusted to her new normal!  Wes was a great male lead who was dealing with his own issues. The relationship between Anna and Wes was great, sweet, but with enough heart pounding emotion to keep it from being boring! 

    Callie Hutton certainly has found a new fan here! Easy to connect with characters,a descriptive writing style that pulls me in and keeps me reading, along with a clean romance, historical setting, rolled together with time travel, action and a bit of suspense held my attention from beginning to end!
