Before I get into my review, here's the summary from Goodreads:
Texas, 1874. Years ago, Will McMillan had fought in the open, next to his Captain, Clayton Proffitt. Now he’s waging another war undercover, pretending to be a member of the notorious Walton Gang. But when a hostage situation goes awry and an innocent woman is in the middle of the fray, Will knows he must protect her no matter what happens. Even if his cover is blown. Even if they risk being killed by his gang or by the lawmen on their trail. Even if the woman he’s risking everything for will never love him back.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: First off I'd like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me review this novel. I absolutely adored reading this one. I hadn't read the first in this series, but I never felt lost.
The characters in this novel were amazing. I loved learning more about Will and Jamilyn. From the very beginning, I was drawn to their personalities and the way they handled the situation that life had thrown at them.
And then there was Scout. I absolutely loved reading about him. He is definitely a character that I loved hearing about and enjoyed seeing his progression.
I love historical fiction and I love adult christian romantic suspense--this novel combined those two elements. The book moved at a fast pace and I really enjoyed reading it.
Shelley Gray is definitely an author that I will be keeping tabs on.
In Summary: A compelling fast-paced read with enough romance, suspense, and intrigue to keep me thoroughly entertained. A novel that was brilliantly written.
Warnings/Side-notes: Minor violence and minor sexual references. Very minor and nothing actually happened. Also a reference to abuse.
The Wrap-up: A very well-written novel that I definitely recommend. I'm excited to see what else Shelley Gray writes as well as to read the first one.
