When Rafe Gentry is saved from hanging by an angry lynch mob by angelic Sister Angela, his world is turned upside down when the couple are forced by circumstance to marry on the spot. Although Rafe has his heart set on clearing his outlaw name he unwittingly becomes Sister Angelas protector from her scheming step father and his trusty side kick.

So the storyline has potential right? Well unfortunately it just doesn't come off as well as it could have. Rafes immediate urges of passionate desire a

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.

Recommends it for: Historical Romance Western Readers
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.
