Recently named #1 from reviewer Steph Huddleston on The Independent Book Review's list of 'Best Books of 2021'

In a world where safety is a luxury and honor is found only among outlaws, two people attempt to outrun dangers lurking around each corner and the tragedies that define them.

Bonnie is an outlaw on the run. Beautiful but dangerous; her dark past stalks her like the crater beasts that roam the desert. As the notoriously cruel outlaw Jones sends his henchmen to track her down and retrieve the gun she stole from him, Bonnie hopes she can stay one step ahead. Because if he catches her, a fate worse than death awaits.

Jesse always dreamed of leaving the farm to explore the ruins of the big cities he'd heard about his whole life. He just never imagined he'd be forced to flee after strange men burned down his rural mountain town and murdered everyone he loved. Responsible for his kid brother and searching for an uncle he's never met before, he isn't sure he can navigate the perils of life among con artists and thieves long enough to find him.

Their two paths collide as they find themselves thrown together on the adventure of a lifetime.

Together, they may just discover that life is about more than just surviving.

Review quote

"Bonnie and Jesse's backstories, which highlight their trauma and grief for the things long-lost are infused beautifully in the narrative. In addition to providing readers with plenty of delicious, scorching-hot romance between the couple, the authors add shocking twists to the gripping plot..." - The Prairies Book Review

"That the guns, outlaws, and conflicts can occur as easily against a modern society's backdrop as it once did in the past is a tribute to Lauren Sevier and A. Smith's storytelling prowess and their ability to translate many of the trappings of the old west into the new west of modern times..." -Midwest Book Review

"Guns and Smoke is a triumph of a book with characters who face real and dark internal struggles and who must learn to accept and face their demons. The supporting characters and worldbuilding are both vibrant and full..." -The Independent Book Review

"Sevier and Smith have balanced a dark world with a bright romance. This fresh look at the western genre that grapples with questions of redemption, trauma, and the many wounds of life that love both can and cannot heal. Relationships between the characters grow authentically and while things may be bleak, we can trust these authors with our hearts." - Michelle Cavalier, Cavalier House Books
