Bodice ripper! Not a bad story, but not great either.

She claims him as her fiancé, and the lynch mob becomes a wedding party.
Angel is on her way to claim her dead father's mine,...more

I think the high ratings are a little misleading on this one. Story started out well, but kind of fizzled after awhile. This is one of those books that uses a lot of steam as filler. Like bad guy is out there, let's have sex. The Law is coming to get me, let's have sex. Need to come up with a plan, let's have sex! Could have used a little more story. Not sure if I will read the rest of the series. I'd give it about 3 1/2 stars.

Great story, looking forward to Sam and Jess' stories and to see how Rafe's babe is doing

Torn between LOVED the book and HATED the h so much I wanted to throw my Kindle against a rock.
The story is great, not super fast paced, may drag slightly in places, but not painfully. But the h made me wish for the bad guys to take her out some times. For a woman who believes and has faith in a higher power, she sure had zero faith in the man she was sleeping with/falling in love with. I think it created some much needed tension and drama, but I would have much rather had the tension and drama...more

Set in Ordway, Colorado, 1868, and is book #1 in The Outlaw Trilogy. Each brother is accused of bank robbery and they all fled in different directions with the agreement to meet in one year at a town in Colorado.

This is Rafe's story and I enjoyed it. Rafe is rescued from being hanged by Angela, who wants to be a nun. :-) Sparks fly and XO the nun thought.

It was an okay read. Kind of slow, but plot was ok. I didn't feel any tension or romatic pull between the H or h, but it finished it. I will try and finish out the series.
