If you haven't read Leather and Lace by DiAnn Mills, you have missed a great book. I had the privilege of critiquing this book as DiAnn wrote it, and I loved the story. I kept asking her about it and when it would be contracted. The day finally came and the book is even better with the edits and revisions. Casey O'Hare is one of my favorite heroines. She has so much courage, grit, and gall. From the first moment when she finds herself "looking into the steel barrel of a Winshester .44" until her redemption, Casey takes you on the ride of a lifetime. You want her to succeed, but her past won't let her go entirely. Morgan, the hero has a dark past and uses Casey as a pawn to accomplish his mission. Casey escapes and starts a new life, but always aware she is in danger of being found. How these two unlikely people end up with each other makes for a fascinating, nail-biting journey across Texas. I give it five stars for sure.
