tipical historical from Rebecca Brandewyne
I'm not a fan of the romance novels, so I didn't even read it through. I will say it was, as far as I read, a typical, graphic romance novel. If you like this stuff, I'm sure it would be a good read.
Not far into the story, the reader understands that something terrible has happened to the heroine, Jenny Leigh Colter, five years in the past. Now plain Jenny is trying to start over as a school teacher in Missouri. While on the train to her job, the train is robbed and Jenny accidently sees the face of one of the robbers. Timid and fearful, Jenny is thankful that she will never see the robbers again. However, she soon sees Luke Morgan and his brothers in the town where she is settling. People know that they are robbers but do not report them because they, and their parents, are solid citizens of the area.
The men are wanted in five states for various crimes. Oddly enough, Luke was studying to be a lawyer before he turned to crime. Luke has an interesting backstory; he was married before but his beautiful wife left him and ran off with another man. Luke was left with two young children.
Luke and Jenny are instantly attracted to each other but his career choice keep them apart. This is an original take on an outlaw family of sons. Once I got involved, I found it hard to put down. 4.5 stars
