The Fall of Rome is the third book in the Wild West Adventure series and reunites us with the Garrett family.
After a sex scandal involving another man’s wife, Rome Garrett finds himself in disgrace. Even though his brothers love him, they too are getting tired of his drinking and womanizing. While sitting in a jail cell, Rome makes a promise to himself that if he gets out of there he’ll give up philandering, whiskey and thinking of Kat. When Rome is offered the chance to redeem himself by working with the Peacemaker Alliance, he quickly agrees. He’s more than anxious to take down cold blooded killer Bull's-eye Brady. And teaming up with Kat will give him the opportunity to show her how much it hurts to lose the one you love.
Kat Simmons has been living under the alias of Jane Murdock for the past six years, fearing the day Bull's-eye Brady finds her. She’s given up her cardsharp ways and now owns a small saloon. When asked to help lure Bulls-eye, she accepts. She’s nervous about being reuinited with Rome, the only man she’s ever loved. But she needs to put the past behind so she can protect her niece Frankie.
Both Rome and Kat are surprised by the changes in the other and quickly realize their feelings for each other are just as strong as before. Little do they know Bulls-eye still holds a powerful grudge against both of them and has plans of his own.
A secondary romance makes this book that much better as one of Rome’s other brothers unexpectedly finds love in a woman whom isn’t exactly what she seems. While the Fall of Rome isn't as lighthearted as previous books, a trait we’ve come to expect from this author, it’s still a very enjoyable story that fans and newcomers alike won’t want to miss.
