Set in 1880-81 in Contention City, Arizona, TIME IN CONTENTION is a western love story set in a time of violence and turmoil. Told from the perspective of both Mollie and Bogardis, the story blends historical locations and figures with the lives of fictional characters. Mollie, a seemingly refined lady hiding from her past, has no illusions concerning her future. She has resigned herself to a life of loneliness. Bogardis, the mysterious stranger who rides into town, is also trying to avoid attention. His past haunts him as he attempts to put some of it to rest. Amid gunfire and bloodshed they must each confront the demons of their pasts. But when their eyes meet on a cold winter day, their lives will be changed forever.

From Owen Wister's "Virginian" to "High Noon" to "Tombstone" the Western has often had an undercurrent of romance. The love story may have been secondary to the action, but it was still there and played and important part. Cindy Smith and T.B. Burton have reversed the order in their novel TIME IN CONTENTION. The love story takes first billing and yet there is plenty of blazing gunfire. I think folks will enjoy this new approach as seen through the eyes of cupid's victims. --Jim Dunham, Booth Western Art Museum, Director of Special Projects/Historian
When T.B. asked me to do the photography for this book, I thought it would be something special. After reading it, I understood just how special. It was a great read, and the characters really come to life. Thanks for letting me be a part of it! --Don Contreras, Photographer 'We Dance Because We Can" - 1996; "The Cowboy Way" - 2002
