Savannah Carrington flees to New York from her home in South Carolina to escape marriage to a man she does not love. On the train to New York, she befriends Ned Barlow and his sister, Raquel. Upon arrival in New York, the pair involves Savannah in a bank robbery as well as steals all of her money.
Mackenzy Cord works as a bounty hunter and hopes to save enough money to court and marry Savannah. He has loved Savannah since they were children, but she comes from a wealthy family, and he wants to give her all that she deserves.
Savannah’s father is distraught when she runs away. He offers to pay Mac to bring her home, and Mac asks for Savannah’s hand if she will have him. Once Mac finds Savannah, the two of them are drawn together as they hunt down Ned Barlow. The problem is convincing one another that they truly love each other and that being together is not just a convenience.
Hero for Hire is a fun and romantic historical romance. Set in the late 19th century, the reader can really get a good feel for the period through the eyes of the characters. Not only are the two lead characters colorful, but there are several secondary characters that the reader will enjoy. Sheridon Smythe’s newest novel is packed with sensuousness and action.
