Marcus Sharpe by William Black
Marcus Sharpe is getting his first crack at being sheriff, replacing the popular Ike Hoskins, who decided to get married. Marcus experiences some early stunning success as a lawman, before a jailbreak has him hunting down some of the most vicious outlaws in Arizona Territory.
Sheriff Sharpe will need every instinct of a lawman to bring in the thoroughly cunning and evil Landon Harvey.
Meanwhile, turmoil follows Marcus around. He's unsure how to deal with his Mexican heritage. Yet the hunt for criminals could also lead to redemption for his past and future. Along the way he meets the beautiful, yet fiercely independent, Annie Buckholtz. The two have many frontiers, challenges and dangers to conquer together.
Another classic western with respectful romance and women as strong frontier folk from author William Black.
