Poppy Montgomery has always been good with a gun and could fight her way out of anything. Tough as nails and a sharp shooter, her beauty deceives the outlaws she’s after.

Hot on the trail of the Clemmons gang, a group of outlaws who rob trains and killed an innocent woman and child a few months before, she is determined to make them pay for the sin’s they’ve committed by bringing them to justice.

Pinkerton, Noah Shaw is investigating a ring of stage robberies and knows the Clemmons gang is behind them. Told to track down the infamous redheaded bounty hunter, Noah gets more than he bargained for when he arrests Poppy for assault.

Handcuffed together the pair must work together to stop the robberies, and figure out who is behind them. But what happens when love interferes and thrusts Poppy into discovering emotions she never knew existed? Will she choose the solitude she’s always known or Noah’s sweet embrace?

My Review
Poppy is the second novella in the Montgomery Sisters trilogy and it focuses on the middle sister, Poppy, through the weeks she spends in the company of Noah Shaw, a Pinkerton who rescues her from a sticky situation. I couldn't empathise with Poppy as strongly as I did with Fern (in the first story) because this woman is very different from me. I didn't always understand her motivations although I was impressed at how she managed to continue in very physical escapades despite quite serious injuries. Nothing cramps Poppy's style! The story is a fun adventure which tries to put a modern twist onto the traditional Western gender roles. Noah is a good foil to Poppy and I could see how their romance might blossom despite her reticence on that score. I think I would actually have liked a longer book in order to get to know these characters better, but overall this was a satisfying read.
