A´mining accident leaves about 100 women and children stranded, with no support from the mining company. Some of the women take to robbing the mining company owners, to get what is their due in back payments and compensations that had been promised.

This is a Historical Western romance with a twist. Women who were evicted from their homes after their husbands died in a mining accident fight back They form their own community filled with women and children. Maddie is one of them and she is determined to help care for them no matter what she has to do.

I was very impressed with these stories that revolve around romance in a mining community. The story lines and pacing of both were excellent. The character development was handled really well, with the main characters clearly showing the kind of people they are and making the reader care for them. Both stories were very comfortable reads and I enjoyed my introduction to an author I had not read before!
