I thought The Innocent and The Outlaw by Harper St. George would be a good read but oh my god, good does not cover it! It wowed and captivated me right from the beginning. It’s engaging, unpredictable, fast paced, and full of action. It’s beautifully written, overflowing with emotion and full of strong, alluring characters! I was mesmerized! The hero and heroine were amazing, had great chemistry and oh boy was there some steamy moments! This book really is the whole package! A book I will gladly ...more
A quick easy read. Very entertaining and fun!!! The ending was a little rushed but overall a good book.

Emmaline calls Hunter "Pretty Boy" when she first meets him, but he still is an outlaw and kidnaps her. She is determined to get free and rescue her younger sisters. Hunter is determined to keep her.
I loved this western book, although it is a little steamier than I usually read. I won a copy of this book in a contest by the author, but my review is voluntary. I plan to read more books from this new-to-me author because I have become a fan!

The Innocent and the Outlaw #1 in "Outlaws of the Wild West" by Harper St. George is an exciting new Western Historical series. What a great read!

Fast paced, well written with well-developed, engaging, and captivating characters. The storyline is unique, interesting and exciting.
I worried a bit about the heroine, Emmaline Drake, the innocent step-daughter of a bank robber, who works in a saloon, then it goes from bad to worst. She was born and raised in a brothel.

A new series begins and promises to be absolutely amazing.

Emmaline Drake does not have an easy life. Working as a barmaid helps but only provides a small amount of money. She has learned to recognize trouble when she sees it and knows the man who just walked in spells trouble with a capital T. Hunter Jameson has no problem kidnapping her as a bargaining chip against her bank robber stepfather. But Emmaline is resourceful and escapes, running to the brothel where she was born. With very little op
This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading from author Harper St. George and it was fantastic! I love Historical Westerns and this is definitely one of the best I've read. Can't wait to read the next two books in this series!

"St. George’s newest series, Outlaws of the Wild West, pairs a woman desperate to ave what is left of her family from the justified revenge of a notorious gang with a dangerous man intent on her family’s destruction. Despite the well-used “captive falling for her captor” scenario, readers will find the sexy adventures of Emmaline and Hunter reason enough to stay up late" (RT Book Reviews).

Entertaining Western Romance

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I will definitely be looking for more from her. I found myself immersed in the story and thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Emmaline and Hunter. Emmaline was a feisty and brave heroine so deserving of a happily ever after and Hunter was everything a hero should be. I recommend this entertaining Western romance highly.

This is a well done romance with all of the required elements and a little more. Emmaline never dreamed of falling in love with an outlaw particularly one who kidnaps her so he can exchange her for his brother's brother. A well written fast read romance lovers should try.
Loved the heroine and her inner strength, the hero wasn't quite as thrilling imo (handsome, yes, but I wasn't entirely clear what made him just so wonderful). Decent writing, although I got a little bored by some of the story here. Still, would be up for reading another by St. George. ...more

3.5 stars. Well written romance set at the end of the 1800's. Lots of outlaw/cowboy action and a slow burn steamy romance that was tasteful and nicely done. Lots to like about this story, but I didn't feel as connected to the main characters as I could have been - but I will certainly be reading more from this author. 🙂 ...more
Pretty good. Loses steam after the first half.

Wonderful read

Emmaline and Hunter's story is very emotional, sexual, mysterious and breathtaking. Poor and the daughter of an outlaw is kidnapped by another outlaw. A Cinderella story with many twist and turns. I loved this story and highly recommend you read and enjoy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
