BOUNTY (Colorado Mountain Series Book 7) by Kristen Ashley
Publication Date: April 18, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty.
Even so, she’s inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet’s soul. Which means she’s still searching for something. Searching for peace. Searching for the less…that’s more.
And when the foundation of her life is pulled out from under her, grieving, she goes to the mountains to find her oasis. She hits Carnal, Colorado and decides to stay.
Deke Hightower lost everything at the age of two. He lost it again at fifteen. His life has not been about bounty. It’s been about learning to live with less, because there’s no way to get more.
Deke’s also watched all his friends go down to the women who gave them what they needed. He wants that for himself. But he knows that search isn’t going to be easy because he’s a rider. His home is the road. That’s the only place he can breathe. And the woman who takes her place at his side has to do it sitting on the back of his bike.
When Deke meets Justice, he knows she’s not that woman. She’s cute. She’s sweet. And she’s into him, but she’s got it all and Deke knows he won’t fit into that. So he holds her at arm’s length. Establishes boundaries. And Justice will take it because she wants Deke any way he’ll let her have him.
But when Justice finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game, Deke makes a decision.
When he does, he has no idea he’s just opened himself up to bounty.
I loved this book so much! BOUNTY is the seventh book in Kristen Ashley’s Colorado Mountain Series and can be read as a standalone but I recommend the entire series. BOUNTY is a beautiful love story that touched my heart, made me cry, made me laugh and made me smile. I fell in love with Deke and I really liked Justice. Kristen Ashley always delivers a great love story and she’s on my must buy immediately and then devour list. Her books skip to the top of my TBR pile as soon as they become available, I recommend them to everyone and I’m always loaning out paperbacks. Her books just make me happy and BOUNTY made me happy. I highly recommend this book and any other Kristen Ashley book for romance lovers.

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake. Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
