December 23, 1952. A transcontinental train is stopped cold by a rockslide in a remote Colorado canyon. There’s a murderer aboard, one who has already killed, and will kill again unless stopped. The California Zephyr, with its run from Oakland to Chicago and back, was famous for its Vista-Domes, which provided a 360-degree view of spectacular Western scenery. It was a kind of small city populated by passengers from all walks of life and a large crew whose duty it was to keep them safe. Zephyrette Jill McLeod is the passengers’ primary point of contact. She’s armed for any emergency—with a first-aid kit, a screwdriver, and her knowledge of human nature. But can she figure out a ruthless killer's clever plot in time?

J-Bird: I finally felt that itch to settle down that my parents and older brother, Deck, had been hounding me about. Lindsay Parker was the first girl to stir that itch in me. Which made it that much more unfortunate when she introduced me to her best friend, Christina. That girl blew me away the first day we met, but she would forever remain off limits because she would never betray her best friend even if I scraped Lindsay off first. So, I stuck it out with Lindsay and longed for her best friend for seven long months and the announcement that I was about to be a father. Then it all crashed down around me in the most literal sense possible along with the lies I'd been fed. There’s an evil inside me that destroys the women who dare to love me. Never again, and especially not with the one I really wanted, needed, fell so hard for. I would spare her my curse, even if it killed me. Christina: I was in love with my best friend’s man! It was getting harder to hide my feelings especially when I had to watch them cuddled up together. My feelings sent me running away to Savannah, Georgia. Sure, it wasn't far, but I moved in with my aunt to become her nanny while I suffered through blind date boredom on top of blind date disaster trying to find anyone who could make me forget the one man I couldn’t have. It seemed to work until they came to visit to share their good news. I wish I could have been happy for my friend while she got everything I wanted. Instead, I smiled to her face and cursed the fates that night for her meeting him first. I wished I could go back and shove all that bitter resentment down, because by morning, I blamed myself for the ill wishes I had thrown into the universe. By morning, reality came crashing in, and it changed everything. The Killing Ride is book 4 of the Aces High MC - Charleston Series which you must read in order!

A cowboy on the right side of justice finds himself on the wrong side of a barrel—from the bestselling Western authors of the Sidewinders series. Mountain Man Smoke Jensen’s long-lost brother Luke Jensen is a dead shot scarred by war—the perfect formula for a bounty hunter. And he’s cunning, and fierce enough to bring down the deadliest outlaws of his day . . . Law of the Gun Luke Jensen has earned this bounty, hunting down the violent man charged with murdering a preacher’s daughter. The outlaw Judd Tyler confesses to many crimes, but not the girl’s murder. And he tells Luke they won’t reach the town of White Fork alive because a corrupt sheriff does the bidding of a cattle baron, and that man’s son is the true killer. Sure enough, halfway to White Fork, Luke and his prisoner are battling for their lives, and when they finally reach town, they’re greeted by a storm of bullets, betrayal, and blood. With a band of innocent travelers caught up in the melee, Luke is outgunned, surrounded, and sure of one thing: his only job now is survival—by the measured, efficient, righteous killing of as many men as he can . . .
