1 y separately published work icon Comanche Territory Cole Shelton , Wiltshire : Black Horse Westerns , 2020 20961892 2020 single work novel western

'Chief Red Claw’s Comanche renegades, supplied with latest rifles by a greedy gunrunning outfit, are terrorizing settlers, burning, looting and killing. In desperation, the Army re-hires former trail scout Clay Coleman, a man they once booted out for bending the rules. On the trail west, Clay rescues a mail order bride from a Comanche war party, then catches up with his old saddle partner, Shoshone Sam. Together, the two scouts match their wits and guns against Red Claw’s warriors and the ruthless bunch of gunrunners. With the odds stacked against them, can they possibly bring peace to the frontier again? And can Clay survive to win the woman he loves?'

'Trouble was brewing in the town of Longhorn, Utah. A band of nesters had moved onto land the local cattlemen had always previously claimed as their own. The nesters weren’t breaking any laws – by order of the government, they were entitled to claim and work the land. But what made things worse was that they also happened to be the one thing no cattleman could stand …. sheepmen!

'Judd Gunther, the biggest rancher in those parts, immediately declared war on the newcomers, and against so many hired guns, there wasn’t much they could do to defend themselves – until Shane Preston and Jonah Jones happened to pass through. 

'Taking a shine to nester’s daughter Elizabeth Cooper, and an instant dislike to Gunther and his two bully-boys sons, Jake and Efraim, Shane and Jonah decided to buy into the war, in the hope of stopping it. But when the bullets started flying, they realized things were going to get a whole lot worse before they got better.'

1 y separately published work icon Bandido! Cole Shelton , Wiltshire : Black Horse Westerns , 2020 20961039 2020 single work novel western

'One hundred factory-new repeating rifles had gone missing, and if they fell into the wrong hands, the west would run red with blood. The job of finding them and returning them to the Army fell to Shane Preston and Jonah Jones. But along the way they collected a rag-tag bunch of helpers, from a Mormon missionary to a disgraced, back-shooting sheriff. And even when they located the rifles, getting them back to Fort Dumas wasn’t going to be easy. The Mexican outlaw Pedro Mantez wanted those weapons, and he didn’t care how many innocent people his fifty-strong army of renegades had to kill to get them!'

1 y separately published work icon Last Train to Gun Ridge Cole Shelton , Wiltshire : Black Horse Westerns , 2020 20960914 2020 single work novel western

'It was the riskiest job Shane Preston and Jonah Jones had ever taken on. The Texas Rangers wanted them to ride into a lawless town called Sombrero and kidnap Lobo Dawson, a prominent member of Sam Hashknife’s notorious outlaw gang. If they could fetch him back to Ranger headquarters, it was hoped that he’d reveal the location of Hashknife’s hideout in return for his own freedom.

'But Lobo Dawson proved to be a tough prisoner to hold, especially when they joined a band of mismatched passengers aboard the last train to Gun Ridge, and the final leg of their journey back to safety.  As the old loco hauled them across the pitiless Llano Estacado, Shane and Jonah found themselves faced with all kinds of treachery… and to save a young newlywed from life as an outlaw’s woman, and to get even with the sadist who’d dared to whip Shane’s horse Snowfire, the two gunmen crossed the blazing desert on foot to take part in an explosive showdown.'

1 y separately published work icon Wagons West of Hell Cole Shelton , Wiltshire : Black Horse Westerns , 2020 20960819 2020 single work novel western

'Following the death of its guide, a wagon train bound for Gun Creek had stalled outside the small town on Conchita. But when Shane Preston and Jonah Jones rode in on the trail of the scar-faced man Shane had sworn to kill, wagon master Huston Whittaker saw an answer to their problems. Whittaker was an old friend of Shane’s, and when he asked for help in getting his emigrants to their destination, the black-clad gunfighter and his crusty old sidekick couldn’t refuse.

'The trail ahead was going to be mighty hard, though. Somewhere out in the vast wilderness, a band of renegade Cheyennes were on the warpath. And there was no shortage of problems right inside the wagon train itself. A killer with a price on his head was trying to work his way west to a new life. A fiery half-Mexican girl on the run from a vengeful husband set her cap for the preacher who hoped to bring religion to Gun Creek. And three men masquerading as prospectors were planning a double-cross that would send the wagons and their occupants straight to hell!'

'Rancher’s daughter Rebecca Donnell was sentenced to death after recognizing one of the men who robbed the stage she was travelling on. Her father knew only that she had vanished off the face of the earth, so he hired the only two men he felt could possibly find her – or her body… Shane Preston and Jonah Jones.

'The two gunfighters rode into the wilderness with no guarantees of success, but once they took a man’s money they never quit a job until it was complete. First they found the missing stagecoach, or what was left of it. Then they found three shallow graves…

'Their quest should have ended there. But the lean gunfighter and his crusty old companion knew they wouldn’t rest until they settled with the killers themselves, the so-called Long Knife Gang.

'Meanwhile, there was a pack of renegades on their trail, determined to capture and torture them for shooting their chief’s kill-crazy son. There was no turning back for Shane and Jonah. They were caught smack in the middle of two bands of killers who were both set on taking their scalps!'
