Breaking the Rules

Unpublished short novel available only to author's mailing list subscribersOn a cold winter night Garn Coburn watches from shadows as two lawmen rough up a woman and leave her lying in the dirt looking like a pile of rags in the moonlight Garn lives by his gun and by a set of rules he hopes will keep him alive Checking to see 35 starsThe intensity of this one much less than Ms O Connell s other booksThe story lighter Garn is too nice to be a hitman and I didn t dislike Edie but I couldn t like her either and that the first time I feel that way toward Ms O Connell s heroineIt didn t matter tho the story is interesting and for a novella still a good read and much better than plenty full length novel available out there

T door dragging her out and beating her for resisting Surprised by the gunman leaning over her in the night weakened by injuries and desperation Edie struggles to her feet and follows Garn to townSo begins a partnership between a man breaking the rules he lives by and a woman determined to get back a decent life any way she c I enjoyed it Very similar to Beautiful Bad Man and since I made the mistake of reading them back to back they get mixed up in my memories I felt like the ending was too rushed I wish they had time to discuss their feelings or get an epilogue of her reaction to his little piece of land It was nice that we have a widow that actually loved her first husband I wish things hadn t been ugly with her husband at the end and we had a story with a widow who fully loved her husband until the end and this was just a new beginning However in this case it would remove the main conflict of the story The main antagonist was a bit weak and their constant hesitation about telling each other how they feel was frustrating In the first few chapters he refers to her as whoever which felt like a really modern use of the word Also at the end she has an injury but seems able to tolerate the pain like nothing is happening and have this discussion in the middle of the street It felt a bit unrealistic

    Breaking the Rules is a short story for EOC’s mailing list subscribersEOC’s western romances are by far my favorites of recent years This one would be accurately titled “Edie the exception to Garn’s Every Rule” ;Although brief Breaking the Rules entertains the entire time It begins with Garn watching the cruel sheriff in town push around what appears to be a scrawny weaker man which is bad enough in G
