It's 1888 in Prairie Ridge, Colorado. Jesse, a tenacious young man disguised as an outlaw, infiltrates a gang of robbers led by a man named Billy Bart. Jesse is searching for the killers of his younger brother Jacob and is determined to bring them to justice. During one of the gang's robberies, Jesse unwittingly ends up kidnapping a young woman named Trinity. Trinity, who has a past of her own, soon finds herself attracted to Jesse. But Jesse must keep his feelings in check and continue to gather evidence against Briggs, the man who controls the town. Will Jesse succeed? Will Trinity find her happy ending? To find out, read Undercover Outlaw, a romance/western by author Gini Rifkin.

I had a blast reading Undercover Outlaw. It's an engaging story of two lovers brought together by unforeseen circumstances and doing their best to overcome their respective struggles. The characters are everyday people facing extraordinary challenges, making them feel relatable and heroic in equal measure. Gini Rifkin's setup of a small town in 1888 America seems really well done, and the western ambiance made the read an even more enjoyable experience. The action sequences happen in quick bursts and are vividly described. There are also some serious issues related to human trafficking that get duly explored, and Rifkin handles them with the necessary nuance and grace. I don't think there is a single thing that I didn't like about this book. I would recommend it to fans of both romance and western crime novels.
