Colorado Renegade (Colorado Territory Book 3) by John Legg
HONOR FORCES BOUNTY HUNTER ELIAS PROSPER TO TRACK DOWN A RENEGADE UTE, NO MATTER THE COST.
Bounty hunter Elias Prosper is as tough a man as the West has produced. But as hard as he is, he has a soft spot for children and women. When a Ute named Painted Bear casts off the ways of the white man and spirits away a Ute boy and a white woman, both of whom Prosper had rescued easier, the bounty hunter ignores his wife’s pleas to stay home and instead heads into the mountains to hunt down the renegade warrior.
