If you loved the ONLY series by Elizabeth Lowell, LAST TRUE COWBOY by Kathleen Eagle and the WEDDING RAFFLE by Geralyn Dawson, you'll love Victoria Lynne's CHASING RAINBOWS. Jake Moran, a gorgeous gambler wanted out East for murder, agrees to escort Outlaw Annie to a town where he's sure he can clear his name. Annie has never trusted men too much and at first the two of them circle each other like a pair of wrestlers. But soon the trust starts - the LUST starts long before that! Annie is innocent in the ways of love but brave and fearless otherwise. Jake just never knows what hit him - he's nuts about Annie even before he can admit it to himself. I really, really enjoyed this book. If you love Romance set in the Wild, wild West - this story is for you!
Nothing spectacular here. A quick read that made me chuckle a few times. I really liked Jake, the handsome hero. Annie was a bit overbearing and unbelievably naive in many ways. Definitely worth a look but won't make it on my re-read list. Characters not that memorable and I know I've read another book about a heroine taking over a decrepit saloon with a bunch of soiled doves. The two main romance scenes seemed repetitious.
The crowd cheered as the bandit was hanged--until his hat flew off, revealing the truth: the condemned man was a woman. But the noose was loose, the rope was frayed, and within seconds Outlaw Annie fell to the ground, rescued by the tall, dark stranger who rode by her side as they hightailed it out of town. She'd never met her match until then, in this disturbing outsider who stirred unfamiliar passions as he tried to tame the wildest woman in the West.
