"Barbours newest True Colors crime novel, The Scarlet Pen by Jennifer Uhlarik, is a journey into the historical murders and counterfeit money business of the late 1800s. Uhlarik gets us inside the disturbed mind of Stephen Richards and his gruesome trail of murders as well as his mental dissent/justification for the crimes he committed. Hero and Secret Service agent, Clay Timmons, is Stephens opposite in almost every way, showing kindness, gentleness, and strength of character throughout the storyeven loving the heroine through her harshness and constant refusal of him. Clay offers a beautiful example of Christs love in the middle of such heart-wrenching circumstances."
Pepper Basham, multi-published author of The Red Ribbon and The Mitchells Crossroads series
"If you like your historical romance novels with a dash of intrigue, a Secret Service agent, and a serial killer, youll love The Scarlet Pen! Uhlarik will keep you turning the pages until the very end of this rollicking tale."
Kathleen YBarbo, Publishers Weekly bestselling author of The Black Midnight and Firefly Summer
"A spunky and determined heroine. A rough-edged but honorable lawman. A charming suitor with humble beginnings and big dreams. The three collide in a tangle of faith, hope, and treachery, where even love may lead the heart astray and only the Spirit of God can prevail. Uhlariks offering in the True Colors series is a tense ride!"
