The Code of the West series, book 2
After revealing their true identities, Tap and Pepper tentatively discuss faith, love and marriage. First, Tap feels compelled to go to Denver in the hopes of clearing his name, and Pepper is prepared to come along till she finds out his destination there's too much of a past that she just can't face in that town, so she stays behind to wait till his business is settled.
But the past finds her anyway, dragging her through the horror of recalling what had taken place, and worse yet, making her meet Tap again under circumstances that seem to betray their commitment to each other. In the struggle to maintain their tenuous hold on God's grace, they discover it's more a matter of God's grace holding them, when all the world seems to be falling apart.
An added layer to the Tap and Pepper story, giving richness and depth to an already-charming couple. They aren't your run-of-the-mill new converts, but neither are they quite the professional gunslinger and dance-hall girl anymore, either... they're well on their way to becoming a man of honor and a woman of virtue. Sometimes light, sometimes heartwrenching, this story hooked me deeper still into Stephen Bly's second adult Western saga. (May 2004)
