Linford Westerns - November 2009
The Gun Hand by Robert Anderson

He meets a local rancher, the beautiful Sarah, whose uncle's past criminal deeds have returned to haunt them. Now, Johnny, Sarah and the ranch foreman must blaze a path of destruction against the forces searching for her uncle's ill-gotten gains, in the teeth of the outlaw's meanest gunslingers.
Trail To Fort Laramie by Jack Edwardes

Then, when the bridge on the trail to Fort Laramie is closed, Beaver Creek explodes into violence as hired killers arrive and ruthless men target Latimer. To survive he'll need to think fast and shoot straight.

Now dangerously exposed and riding low and fast, nothing less than a miracle would let him survive to even learn his sweetheart's fate.
