One author I can always depend on to write a book I won't be disappointed in is B.J. Daniels. Set in a small Montana town, B.J. has written a intricate story of suspense and romance centered around the Cahill family. She skillfully blends several story lines and the problems the family has with their father is an arc over the series.

I found the main story between Mariah and Darby was pretty boring up until the final scene where her past catches up to her. This scene was really well done and I wish the rest of the book had this level of excitement and action. Other than the ending scene, the story line of Mariah, the pickpocket and Darby, her mark, just didn't do anything for me. It was sweet but boring.

My fear when I started this series was that there would be too many incomplete threads that would carry from one book to th
Terrific second installment in the Cahill Ranch series, about six siblings in the tiny Montana town of Gilt Edge. The first book, Renegade's Pride, was the story of Lillian, the only girl. This book is mostly about her twin brother, Darby. Darby has been feeling restless, not sure that the bar he co-owns with his sister is enough for him anymore. Then, during the annual Chokecherry Festival, a beautiful young woman tries to steal his wallet and ends up leaving a valuable family heirloom behind a ...more

I've immensely enjoyed my time spent in Gilt Edge, Montana with Cahill family in this second installment Outlaw's Honor. An interesting group of siblings who find themselves in spots of trouble thanks to their love interests. B.J.

A fast-paced, heart-pounding read! Seriously, you cannot go wrong with any of B.J.’s books!

He was looking at the most exciting woman he’d ever met.

In Outlaw’s Honor, B. J. Daniels takes readers back to Gilt Edge, Montana for the second intriguing installment in her Cahill Ranch western family drama series. Before I continue, I have to mention the panoramically breath-taking setting for these books. The wide-open vistas with the looming mountain peaks are infused with beauty and precariousness a

FINAL DECISION:  The series improves as the characters fall into their places. I enjoyed this book as part of the series and I especially loved Darby who is sweet and honorable.  The story slowly unwinds the motives of the characters and I enjoyed the journey.

THE STORY:  Darby Cahill has a quiet life running the bar he and his twin sister own in a small town in Montana. While attending a fair, he sees a woman who shakes his foundations.  Ironically, that same woman tries to pickpocket him later.

Once again, B.J. has written a spellbinding story of romance and intrigue in a small Montana town. She is the master of both! I love following the multiple story lines she has going at once, which means we get to know several secondary characters and what is happening with them at the same time as the main story. You feel like you are all over town in different places with these different characters, like puzzles pieces in a big puzzle! It's fascinating!

Darby Cahill and Mariah Ayres should not be a match but turns out they are. Mariah is on the run. That is the danger in Outlaw's Honor. Darby decides to help her face that danger. None of that happens overnight. Theirs is a romance that has more than the usual number of problems. Daniels has a theme where she features other couples whose romance spans several books in a series. This time it is Flint and Maggie and there is plenty of danger and tension that needs to be resolved before they have t ...more

I'm generally quite a fan of B.J. Daniels' novels, but after several unsuccessful attempts to read this novel because I just could not get into it, I finally finished reading it last night, and although I kept hoping I'd end up liking it, I'm sorry to say that it simply wasn't the book for me, and I can only give it a 2-star rating.

First, I expected a true western cowboy romance and this wasn't it. The cover photo was misleading. The hero in this novel runs a bar and isn't a cowboy, although th

I was given this book for an honest review.

I like Gilt Edge, Montana – the location of the Cahill Ranch Series. I like the Cahills as well. In this second installment of the series, we get more of a story of Darby Cahill, twin to Lillie (featured in Renegade’s Pride). While Lillie is busy planning her wedding, running of the Stagecoach Saloon is in Darby’s capable hands. During a promo for the bar, he meets Mariah Ayers when she picks his pocket and then disappears. He is obsessed with finding h

I am loving the Cahill family as much as any of the other families BJ has written about. Outlaw's Honor is full of suspense wondering what is going on with Mariah & why she is so scared. I had a hard time putting this book down it was so exciting. If you love Cowboys, intrigue & romance, you will love this book! It is definitely one of her best!

I'm really sorry to say that I was not that thrilled with this particular book. I have read many of B.J. Daniels books and loved them, but this one just rubbed me wrong. I don't like to put negative comments out there because I know authors put a lot of passion into their writing and I don't want to discredit their efforts. However, the main thing that bugs me about this book and others like it that I've read is how it can be considered "cowboy" romance. The main characters are a bar or "saloon" ...more

This series follows the Cahill family.
This is Darby's story.
He leads a quiet life owning and running the bar and cafe that he bought with his sister Lillie (book 1).
It's not until he sees her from across the crowd that his life is completely turned upside down.
Ironically, the next time he sees her, she picks his pocket.
As he reaches for her, her bracelet falls into his hands. And it's that bracelet that brings her to the Stagecoach Salo

How can we expect a relationship to build and last? She was a thief and pickpocket, looking for a mark before skipping town. He accidentally snagged her bracelet as she went for his wallet. She’s on the run from a husband she left on her wedding day. He hires her to work in the family bar.

Not exactly great attributes to lay a strong foundation in a relationship. Yet, through careful weaving of B

This is the story of Darby Cahill and Mariah Ayers. This is a fantastic story everyone so be prepared. Darby is roped into representing the saloon he and his twin sister owns at a town festival. She's trying to play matchmaker and he just wants to get the day over as quick as possible. That of course isn't going to happen if your familiar with B.J. writing. Things are never that simple. Their unusual meeting sets up a story for a wild and crazy ride. You have a psychotic husband or ex husband af ...more

Their meeting was a hum dinger but then it turns around for Darby and Mariah. What he learns is curious indeed but then drama soon finds its way once again to try mayhem and mischief. Being the twin who also has a heart I was attached to him wanting to see what was coming his way. Also more happenings with the pops, actually this family has my attention. ...more

I won a copy of this book from the author and I was not required to give a favorable review. This is another of this wonderful series about the Cahill family in Gilt Edge, Montana. This is a great book about finding love in a way that would surprise the less willing of men.

An easy and enjoyable read by the ever satisfying B. J. Daniels. This book is chock full of characters and suspense. Mariah is running for her life. She makes the mistake of trying to pick the pocket of Darby Cahill. He grabs for her and her bracelet comes off, but she's gone before he can call to her.
When she comes into his saloon and asks for a job, he suspects she's only interested in getting back, what he discovered, was her very valuable heirloom. He should send her on her way, but there's

Wow lots of story lines going on

I thought this was Darby's story, oh boy there was so much more. Fantastic read. Could be a stand alone but if you read the series he helps with all of the twists and turns in this story. Although I understand why the author did this, I'm not a fan of the story stopping and changing to the other storyline. Suspense kills me. Lol B. J. Daniels writes awesome suspenseful storylines, with series following the characters.

I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway. Thank you to the promoters of this giveaway. I enjoyed this book very much. This story had many moving parts, as stories involving members of a large family tend to do, but it was well written and easy to keep up with all of the parts within. It has also whet my appetite to read the stories of the rest of the family members.
