Shelley Gray's A Texan's Honor ~ Reviewed
A Texan's Honor Shelley Gray Paperback: 320 pages Publisher: Abingdon Press (March 2012) Language: English ISBN-10: 1426714637
1874. Years ago, Will McMillan had fought in the open, next to his
Captain, Clayton Proffitt. Now he's waging another war undercover,
pretending to be a member of the notorious Walton Gang.
when a hostage situation goes awry and an innocent woman is in the
middle of the fray, Will knows he must protect her no matter what
happens. Even if his cover is blown. Even if they risk being killed by
his gang or by the lawmen on their trail. Even if the woman he's risking
everything for will never love him back.
known for her Amish novels, Shelley Gray continues to impress me with
her engaging Western romances novels, the most recent, A Texan's Honor,
the second in her Heart of a Hero series. Beautifully told, with
another appealing yet imperfect hero and a heroine who grows in strength
and determination, A Texan's Honor is a terrific read for those
who love their romance with some solid action and a little edge.
Shelley's character development is excellent as she balances Will's
dangerous and risk taking nature with his protective instincts and
respect for Jamie. Their relationship slowly unfolds, as they battle
attraction, duty and deeply held fears. Great pacing, solid dialogue and
the appearance of the enigmatic and brutal Scout Proffitt, the
estranged brother of Clayton Proffitt, add up to a compelling and
intriguing read. Readers are in for a treat when they pick up this
series and and I'm really looking forward to Scout's story in Shelley's
October release, A Texan's Promise!
