Arizona Territory, 1882

Maggie Bullock's father needed expensive medical care and if that meant stealing from their friendly swindling banker, so be it. Once her father was on the path to recovery she would face the consequences. The whole thing was surprisingly easy until she's kidnapped by bounty hunter Dean Collier.

Collier is tired of tracking down worthless scum. He'

I read this book for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2017 Reading Challenge. For more info about what this is, click here.

Have you ever picked up a book and then gotten immediately, even irrationally, annoyed with the main character(s)? That was what happened with me and the "heroine," Maggie. I couldn't stand her, and reading CATCH ME quickly became unbearable.

Remember when kids' TV shows from the 1980s and 1990s began introdu

As late my give a damn about reviewing books I read appears to have been rather busted, but since this was a Buddy-Read with my lovely ladies over at URR I’ll give it a whirl.

Catch Me is one of those books that is strangely enjoyable despite being entirely unbelievable. The heroine in this here romance is a bank robber and the Hero a bounty hunter sent to capture her and return her to her hometown for justice.

Now that’s all fine and good, except I’m pretty sure (even th
Buddy read with Nenia, Karly, Casey, and Helen 2.0 from the Unapologetic Romance Readers group.
Read for the URR 2017 New Year's Reading Challenge prompt 'Cowboy/Western Romance'

4/4 - Meh. I didn't hate Maggie like Nenia did (her review is here, but I do agree that there was no chemistry between her and Dean. For both of them, it felt like they chose whoever was close at hand for a last minute roll in the hay (her before she went off to jail and he before he became the 'straight-arrow sheriff').
Set in Arizona territory in 1882, Catch Me by Lorelie Brown is an entertaining romance of the American-Western variety that fans of the genre should not miss out on. Lorelie Brown serves the reader with enough adventure, red-hot passion and a love between two strong-willed people who have no clue as to what they are in for when fate throws them together in the most trying circumstances.

22 year old Margaret Bullock, daughter of the current sheriff of Fresh Springs is at her wits end as to how to

I've read two books by Brown before I read this one. I loved both of them. But have been very reluctant to try anything else by her for a rather simple reason - those two other books had something in common that the rest didn't have - those two books were FF romance books. The rest are/were MF romance books. Which is odd, in it's way, to be a deterant since I also read MF romance books. But still. Made me hesistant.

So, eventually, I finally broke down and tried one of them. The only one that int
Female bank robber + Sexy bounty hunter + Weeks alone on the trail = a sexy, emotional, adventure filled read.

At First Sight: Maggie Bullock is in desperate need of money, so she decides to rob the bank in Fresh Springs, where her dad is Sheriff; thinking she will pay for her father's medical care and disappear for a while.

But the bank owner is of a vicious vent and quickly sics a bounty hunter after Maggie.

Dean Collier has spent the last five years as a bounty hunter, doing quite a few questionable things in order to forget the life he once had and what he lost.

But when he's offered the chance of bec

Wickedly Wonderful Western Historical
There's nothing Maggie Bullock wouldn't do to save her father's life. That's why she walked into the bank in Fresh Springs, Arizona. The first time was to beg bank owner Willheim Masterson for a loan to provide the money for her father's medical care. The second was to take what that slimy bastard wouldn't give her, despite the years of loyal friendship between Masterson and her father. With nothing but a gun and determination the twenty-two-year-old robbed t

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest opinion and review.

Catch me is the first book of Lorelie Brown's that I've had the opportunity to read. I've had some really good luck with new to me authors lately and this was not going to be an exception. Catch Me is a historical romantic western. I haven't read one of these in a while and i wasn't sure i was in the mood. The cover and title if you just look at those are misleading to the premise of the story but once you read the b
I found this book passable. I didn't finish reading it as it got so boring just waiting for them to get back to that town. Ironically I stopped reading after (view spoiler).

Catch Me by Lorelie Brown is a historical western romance due to be released on July 18 2011. The novel tells the story of one sheriff’s daughter who robs a bank to pay for her father’s medical treatment and the bounty hunter that is running out of options contracted to bring her to justice. Maggie Bullock has run out of options, her father is gravely ill and the only medical treatment that has helped him this far is extremely expensive. She has already sold off everything she can and requested ...more

Catch Me by Lorelie Brown is a beautiful and enchanting read for a coyboy romance. I couldn’t get enough of it even though the novel length was quite long winded. I love the plot and the character’s dynamics and I highly recommends this book for those who wants a high quality cowboy romance read.

I’m not a fan of cowboy romance, but I definitely can make an exception for this book. It’s sinfully delic

Female bank robber and cranky bounty hunter, so far it is a win..

I'm not sure how to grade this one, I managed to finish it, despite the reading funk, and historicals not being my standard fare.. There were a couple of argh/ugh moments, but it entertained me. And the main chars kept my interest. Will have to think of it some more.

Gritty and well done. This isn’t a glossy, pretty view of the American West. I liked both the hero and heroine. There are lots of bits that didn’t get wrapped up all neat, which bothers me a bit. 3 stars.

I love bounty hunters in my westerns. I also love "alone on the trail" stories and heroines who don't take any crap. I got all three. Catch Me is fun, steamy, emotional and full of adventure, and western fans won't want to miss it!

L'autrice scrive bene (almeno per come lo posso valutare io che traduco mentre leggo), però, il rosa western non è un genere che mi appassiona particolarmente... gli eroi di questo tipo di romanzi si muovono, infatti, in un ambiente un po' troppo rude ed essenziale per i miei gusti...

Just okay. The real baddies were obvious. So was how the HEA would come about even though the female lead was a bank robber.

This story was just ok for me. It just kinda dragged and I couldn't connect with the characters.

Well, now. I was expecting this to be steamy, but... whoa. It does drag a little bit in places, but there's enough chemistry to scorch your saddles in here.
