Synopsis

He's gambled everything...except his heart.

Beth Caldwell is no man's property. Agambler's widow with a willful, independent streak, she's already courting trouble after rejecting an offer of marriage from a foul-tempered and land-hungry cattle baron. But when Beth discovers a handsome outlaw hiding in her barn, she lands in a whole new heap of trouble...

Isaac Collins survived the Civil War only to find himself scapegoated for stagecoach robbery and murder. With nothing left to lose, he gambled everything on revenge and barely escaped with his life. Now he's relying on the kindness of a fierce, strong-willed woman...and God help him if there isn't something both sweet and forbidden simmering between them.

But Beth's rejected suitor is no gentleman. He'll do whatever it takes to get her land. And in Nevada, everything rides on a high-stakes game of chance...especially love and death.

    Good romance

    4.5 * Gambling on the Outlaw is the first book in the Nevada Bounty series, and I am already dying to read the others. I really enjoyed this western historical romance. It had the right stakes keeping me on the edge of my seat, a great heroine, an intriguing hero, and sweet and sensual romance. Beth was a really great character. I loved her. She was sassy, clever and kind, she was a woman who knew what she wanted out of life, when to pursue it and when to back off. She faced many odds in deterring an unwanted suitor determined to claim her land, and a debt her late husband left on her shoulders. I kept expecting her to wilt under the pressure of everything, but with each challenge her backbone strengthened and she waded through determined to come out conquering. I loved that about her, she did not wait on someone to fix her problems. Yet though she was so spunky and strong, she knew when to lean on others, especially the delicious former outlaw Isaac. Isaac himself was a good character. I kinda like western romances cause the heroes are normally hard a$$ and ruthless. Isaac did not present as such, but he had strength and honor, which was just as appealing or more so. I liked it. It had rankled me a bit that Beth was the one searching mostly for a solution out of his predicament, but I started to enjoy that it was her gentle strength that bolstered Isaac and made him determine to fight more. Did I wish he was more ruthless? Yes I will admit it…a few places I really wished he were, but I am kinda blood thirsty. Beth and Isaac complemented each other, and their romance was believable and pretty sweet. I enjoyed the plot and the twists in the book. I absolutely loved loved the ending. Though I knew the bad guys would be defeated, and Beth and Isaac would triumph, I was on edge when they sat down to play a game of chance where not winning meant losing everything they both held dear. Overall I loved it and I would recommend. The only thing I found a bit jarring initially was that Gambling on the Outlaw was written in the first perspective. I am not really a fan, but the author writing was very vivid and engaging and she drew me in quickly, and captivated my attention until then end. Kudos. ;) This review was originally posted on Geeks In High School
