Title: Caught in the Middle
Author: Regina Jennings
Review: A charming western romance that takes place in 1883 in the northern part of Texas and the Indian Territory (Oklahoma). The main story revolves around a young woman who had previously shot and killed her abusive husband when he attacked another woman. She becomes a buffalo hunter and a loner who does not trust any males. She is given a young baby to care for after the mother runs off. The brother of a friend befriends her and the tale only grows from there.
It was very pleasant to have a romance story without crated pages of seduction and a happy ending. I would rate it at 4 stars and would read other offerings from this author.
Thanks Frank for this review.

Synopsis: The train to Garber, Texas, is supposed to bring life's next victory to Nicholas Lovelace. Instead, it gets held up by robbers who are thwarted by the last person Nick ever expected--Anne Tillerton from back home in Prairie Lea.
Anne’s been hiding away as a buffalo hunter. She’s only in Garber to find their runaway cook, but the woman flees--leaving Anne with her infant son. With Nick the only person Anne knows in Garber, the two form an unlikely team as they try to figure out what to do with the child.
But being in town means acting and dressing for polite society--and it's not going well for Anne. Meanwhile, Nick's work is bringing new pressures, and being seen with a rough-around-the-edges woman isn't helping his reputation. Caught between their own dreams, a deepening relationship, and others' expectations, can the pair find their way to love?
