Jacob Sheridan, Jake to his friends, is the laidback member of DH Enterprises and has a way with the ladies. But just like his comrades, he has demons that seem to haunt him on a daily basis. Running from an Army Captain who is writing his own laws, the Devils find themselves in Tanger, Texas. And for the first time Jake has met a woman worthy of his love, Gabrielle Rinaldi.

Gabrielle, affectionately known as Gabby is a straight shooter, if you ever want to meet one. When the Devils show up in town, she is more than a little unhappy to discover that they have been hired with money that the town can ill afford. But one look at Jake and her Italian passion is rearing its heels and ready for pleasure.

Will the Devils discover who is behind the attacks on the town, before it’s too late? Can Gabby be the balm needed to help Jake heal his internal wounds?

Devils on Horseback – Jake begins shortly after the Devils we’ve come to love escape the crazy captain who is tracking them. Jake has been through a great deal in his life. Between a mother who didn’t believe in him, and the blows inflicted by war, he’s one step from falling off the cliff into insanity. But the misery was necessary to deliver him into Gabby’s loving arms. Gabby has also had her share of disappointment and hurt, but she finds the strength to move forward when she encounters Jake. Beth Williamson has delivered yet another intriguing installment in the Devils on Horseback series. The plots, setting, characters and storyline will keep you riveted. I have to say it was nice to see Nate again, even if it was for a hot second. If you enjoyed the first book, you will not be disappointed with its sequel.
