This was my first cowboy book, and I thought it might be fun to start with an anthology so I got several different tastes of my first cowboys (not like that you naughty readers!) One thing that I didn't realize is that this book is very sweet. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but with that sexy cover I didn't expect sweet.

3.5 flames- Starting with the first story The Outlaw, we have a young lady who tells some stories so big she needs the first available man to bail her out. She plans a w

The Give Me A Texas Outlaw anthology with Jodi Thomas, Linda Broday, Phyliss Miranda and DeWanna Pace is a book that was on my radar for a few reasons. First, hmmm.... cowboys! It's about cowboys, but not just any cowboys, it's outlaws finding their happily ever after. Everybody knows I love that combination!

In the first story, "The Outlaw" by Jodi Thomas, Cozette is in big trouble. After a man betrays her trust, she finds herself pregnant and lies to her dying father. Cozette's elaborate lies

Give Me A Texas Outlaw is a wild novel filled with fantastic stories! This anthology has plenty to offer for the western romance fan. Tough outlaws and fantastic love stories makes this book a must have!

The Outlaw by Jodi Thomas was an absolutely cute and charming story. This is Jodi Thomas doing what she does best! The couple featured in The Outlaw were lost souls, needing to find each other. Ms Thomas manages to execute a stunning story with an exciting premise in a few brief pages. The charac

The first story, The Outlaw by Jodi Thomas was really sweet and just... perfect for a short magical tale. 5 stars. :) I loved it!
The second story, Trouble in Petticoats by Linda Broday was kinda meh. 2.5 stars.
The third story, Texas Flame by Phyliss Miranda, well, I’m sorry to say, was lost on me. 1 star.
The last story, Most Wanted by Dewanna Pace was sweet and adventurous, even though the end was a bit anti-climactic. For the strong buildup and good plot, I give it 3.5 stars. :)

So, this book ge

The Outlaw Wins

This anthology was one of the best from this writing group. Loved every story!

No one was truly an outlaw, but then it wouldn't be that romantic with a bunch of killers and cold blooded people falling in love. Nice fun read.

great short story book they each need to have a second book of their own

I have read the first two stories in this book of short stories. Jodi Thomas was pretty good. One of my goodreads friends recommended her to me. Personally I like longer books, short stories just seem to be rushed. Jodi managed to pull it off ok. The second story not as well done. The H/h fell madly in love within 3 or 4 days.

The Outlaw by Jodi Thomas 3
Trouble in Petticoats by Linda Broday 2
Texas Flame by Phyliss Miranda 3
Most Wanted by DeWanna Pace 3.5
Not much I can say other than "it was ok". I thought reading this book was going to be fun. 4 stories about Texas outlaws finding love. Instead it felt sort of mocking. They used words that were SO-TYPICALLY-TEXAS that I wasn't sure if they were trying to get you in the feel for the stories or were laughing everytime they typed the words.

I had a very mixed reaction to each of the stories in this book. The authors' were so different and the stories so short, that it was hard to change focus so quickly. Ratings for each story:

The Outlaw by Jodi Thomas 4*
Trouble in Petticoats by Linda Broday 3*
Texas Flame by Phyliss Miranda 2*
Most Wanted by DeWanna Pace 3*

A very good book of short stories with a little danger and drama mixed in with romance. All 4 authors did an outstanding job!!

I can't believe I actually liked an anthology this much!

Not the best Cowboy stories I've ever read. I did enjoy "The Outlaw" by Jodi Thomas and would rate it a 3, the other three stories were just ok, a little too boring for my taste
Odessa Nance
Okay book. Jodi Thomas' story was very interesting and Linda Broday's story was a good read. The other two stories were not as interesting and did not hold my interest.
