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.
Justice Lonesome was looking for her own little piece of heaven. After suffering a heartbreaking loss, she retreats to the mountains and finds the man who once inspired her to bare her soul in a song.
And he makes it perfectly clear that he can’t give her what she needs.
In my life I’d seen many a player, rocker, club rat, cowboy, jock, biker, businessman.
Deke Hightower never had an easy life. Growing up with nothing and just trying to make ends meet has given him a heart of steel. The only freedom that he knows is when he hits the open road on his bike and no woman will ever be able to change that.
But when Justice sweeps into Carnal with her all of her sass and her gypsy spirit, Deke begins to wonder if it’s finally time to take a chance on love.
We’d been dancing around the fact that I was at one place, he was in another and we both knew what one wanted and the other didn’t.
Kristen takes us back to Carnal with a masterful blend of music, poetry, love and forgiveness. All of the Colorado Mountain family is there to make you laugh and even shed a few tears along the way.
And all of that makes Bounty an emotional experience unlike anything else - a glorious slow burning romance that grows so bright that at its zenith will literally warm you to your soul...

Once I had it in, the air of his trailer, the air Deke breathed, I let it out saying, “You know how you told me I was one of the best women you’ve ever met?”
