This is a touching story of a good "bad" guy who we all want to love. It's a good story told well. I also love that the leading lady has some realistic backbone. I really enjoyed it.

Angela stumbles upon a daring evening bank robbery. The infamous Lee Raven grabs her and takes her with the outlaws, fearing that she can identify him. Lo and behold. it turns out that the heroine is blind.

Angela is blind but not helpless. She has learned to use her other senses to compensate for her lack of sight. She is engaging and brave.

By the end of the story, you realize that the only way this plot would work was if she didn't recognize Lee Raven.

I gave this book only 3 stars because the story line is so common. The dialogue and characters were winsome but the outcome was too pat and convenient. I must admit that the tale was interesting and a quick read.

Given a choice. I would rather have spent my time on two other of Lorraine Heath's books: ALWAYS TO REMEMBER and PARTING GIFTS.

When notorious outlaw Lee Raven and his brothers are robbing a bank in the middle of the night, they literally run into Angela Bainbridge as they leave the bank. Afraid that she can identify him, Lee abducts Angela and rides for the border. When he discovers that she will not be able to identify him, he plans to return her to her home when the coast is clear. Angela doesn't know what to make of Lee Raven. He has a reputation as a thief and a cold-blooded murderer. But has she travels across Texas with him, she learns that he cares about his family and wants to make sure they are unharmed in his quest for revenge.

This is the first book in Lorraine Heath's Daughters of Fortune series. It's been a long time since I read anything by this author. I'm glad I picked up this book. Angela is a heroine who may have a disability, but doesn't let that slow her down. She has a backbone and isn't about to let any outlaws push her around. Lee is a fantastic hero. He will protect his family at all costs. We learn he has his reasons for a life of crime. We also discover he has many secrets.

I highly recommend this book, but recommend that you read Heath's Rogues of Texas series before starting this one. The characters in that series play heavily in this book. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
