No one knows where Sanctuary is, the few law-men sent prior, were never seen again. The governor wants it shut down and the deadly outlaws hidden there brought in.

This is another book on my keeper shelf. The romance is sweet and the hero is in big trouble as he goes into an outlaw gang undercover to find a particular outlaw. He has his best friend in prison and if the hero can find this wanted outlaw, his friend's life will be spared...but I'm just touching on the tip here as there are some other really neat twists in this story. Well worth the read. Lots of tension! ...more
