“Rocky Mountain Retribution” is the 2nd book in my Rocky Mountain series. Available on Amazon in print or download.

Chance Bondurant and his younger brother Jace are forced off their windswept grassland farm in Lane County, Kansas when their folks died of the fever.

The Bondurant brothers with no money and less hope head to the gold fields in the Colorado Rocky Mountains near the mining camps of Central City and Nevadaville, where a righteous gunfighter named Lucas Eldridge takes and mentors the older Bondurant after Chance witnessed the brutal murder of his brother at the hands of a roaming outlaw gang.

Years later, after learning a unique set of skills that included survival of the fittest amongst the high Rocky Mountains, the ins and outs of all manner of weapons and hand to hand combat, and after acquiring a killer instinct, Chance is now ready to embark on his “Rocky Mountain Retribution” and to ride his mare Storm beyond the great divide to track down the Bigger and Hammond gang to fulfill a sworn blood oath on the grave of his departed brother.

With a dark heart and a half wolf, half something else dog named Mutt, Chance encounters all the dangers the Rocky Mountains can throw at him that include outlaws, grizzly bears, renegade Indians, and the deadly weather of autumn and winter in the remote mountain frontier.

Trained to be a killer with no love in his heart, Chance meets Senorita Kellie Shawn Arriaga, the sister of a rogue Mexican rebel turned bandit, on the trail after rescuing one of her bodyguards. Smitten and with the prospect of true love, Chance hits the first crossroad of his life; one road is to start a new life with the beautiful Mexican girl bandit or follow the second road and continue his search for justice against the outlaws that killed his brother. Chance turns his back on the love that could have been and rides away to follow what he believes is his destiny in Grand Lake, Colorado.

Little did Chance realize that Kellie Shawn Arriaga and her bodyguards would fall victim to the outlaws that he was pursuing. Now Chance must not only complete his oath to his dead brother, but also rescue the woman who has stolen his heart. If he is to ever find happiness, it would be in a thrilling final showdown which has never before been written about.
