This was my first read by Ms. Wildes and I have to say it was a nice surprise. I really liked this sweet and romantic story about an outlaw who finds love and a new purpose in life in the arms of his unintended captive. Cal and Laurel fall in love with each other almost at first sight and that could have made me skeptic about their HEA, but Ms. Wildes made it work for me. That was quite a feat, considering this is a short story.

Here's "my" Cal:

'Lawless' started out so promising - a dangerous (anti)hero takes it upon himself to save a young woman from a fate worse than death when she is kidnapped for "fun" by an outlaw gang. The girl is, of course, outrageously beautiful and very innocent (*rolls eyes* nothing new there), but the (anti)hero seemed so interesting and complex in the beginning, I was starting to settle in for a satisfying read reminiscent of Sarah McCarty's 'Hell's Eight' stories.

Unfortunately after a great opening act,
Very satisfying story about a man's redemption in the arms of a woman he never dared dream of loving. The HEA was sweet and tender.
*Steam rating: extremely spicy

“My share for the girl.” –Cal

Lawless starts out with a bang from the start. Cal Ricker may be known as one of the most dangerous outlaws in the west but that is far from who he truly is. You find out fast that while Cal has done some criminal things he is not the man he lets everyone think he is. He’s used to being alone and thinks that anyone who has prolonged contact with him gets hurt one way or another.

“Damn my black soul, you feel so good” –Cal

Laurel is pretty quick to see through Cal’s fa
You have to love a well written book about the old west! We start with a kidnapping, a fake rape, an escape, an ill-timed kiss, a cross country trek, and end up with a few weeks alone at a cabin - what could go wrong? Nothing really when a ranchers pride and joy daughter gets tangled up with a wanted gunslinger and tries to figure out how she can keep him. No shy, demure ladies can exist in the old west, and Laurel qualifies for that, she asks for what she wants, and Cal is helpless to deny her ...more

I love this story! The descriptions of their kisses give me palpitations. His character is everything I want in a man. I wish I was Laurel.
I didn't love it as much as the first book, but it was pleasant enough.. Sexy cover though..
