Start your review of Bound for Glory (Frontiers of the Heart, #4)
BOUND FOR GLORY by Tess LeSue met all my expectations and surpassed them beyond what I could imagine. It was hard for me to envision Deathrider’s story, even though I’ve craved it since reading the first book where he appeared. I knew it would take a tough woman to out-fox and out-talk him. Ava Archer is exactly what he needed.

But first, he had to suffer a lot, and go through one dark moment after
This didn't work for me. Didn't connect with the heroine Ava. Wasn't a fan of the fact that her writing caused huge problems for Nate, especially since she made up/embellished a bunch of it. Also, the couple didn't even meet up until after the 40% and I just was having a hard time staying interested.

Bound for Glory is the fourth book in the Frontiers of the Heart series. It can be read as a stand alone, but characters from the previous books appear in this one.
I loved this story!! It grabbed from the first chapter where we meet our main characters, Deathrider (he has many names) and Ava Archer. Their fist encounter was very entertaining since she does not know what to do with this man who is naked and all beat up in the middle of a desert. She's in no condition to help him but she does.

I have been lucky enough to have read a few of the Frontiers of the Heart series as this one was perfect! A.A. Archer (Ava) is ready to stop writing because she has made enough money with her tales of Deathrider but just when she thinks she can relax for a bit she is thrown right back into it. There is a Hunt on and the one who brings back Deathrider back alive wins the prize money and they drag Ava along to prove it. When she escaped Kennedy Voss she finds a naked man near death and her efforts ...more

Ava is a writer back in the old west. She writes about a man that is a legend they call him Deathrider. Some of what she writes its true some made up. Now there is a hunt to capture him. When Ava and Deathrider meet they don’t know who each other really is. The adventure and trouble they get into will keep you very entertained.

Bound for Glory by Tess LeSue is the 4th and final book in her western historical romance Frontiers of the Heart series. We meet our heroine, Ava Archer, who is a famous author, who writes about the wicked west and her tales of the infamous, Deathrider or Plague of the West. Ava has written many tales in her books about the dangerous Deathrider, who kills at will, and even rapes women along the way. But Ava bases her stories on the gossip of others, and has never really met him. Deathrider ...more

The story told in Tess LeSue's Bound For Glory illustrates how legends are created for good or for ill
through stories and word of mouth.
And how said stories can then become the bane of someone's existence. Or as in the case of Nathaniel. A threat to their very lives.

As for Ava. One could honestly say that she had no idea that her tales of Deathrider's supposed exploits would be as widely circulated or as popular as they became.
Let alone that they would serve as the impetus for a sponsored

Deathrider who is also know by many other names including the Plaque of the West, White Wolf, and by his people, Nathaniel. He has a reputation for being the bogeyman of the Wild West. Countless stories about his fearsome crimes gives chills and thrills to Ava Archer’s readers. Just because she never met him, that does not keep the plucky Miss Archer from telling his story. Ava finds how just exactly what payback means when a contest is set up to capture this most dangerous half-breed man with ...more

For lovers of historical, romantic westerns, this is a keeper. Tess LeSue’s ability to capture the essence of the historical west by painting vibrant and lively characters is amazing. I loved this finale to the Frontiers of the Heart series!

Ava Archer rejected the relatively few options allowed her growing up by leaving home to make her own future. Ava traveled the west writing true (mostly!) western novels about the people she meets along the way, gaining unexpected fame and much needed money
Amy Anderson
This book exceeded my expectations in all sorts of good ways. Deathrider and Ava’s story is chock full of adventure, humor, excitement, surprises, romance, and of course, a happily ever after that only a good story can provide. Even the villains in this story are somewhat likable and intriguing! I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I highly recommend this entire series.

Sorry to see this series end. Maybe another one about Micah and one last look at all the people and how they are doing. How about another series like this one???
