Refuge for the Outlaw
When Tex Beckett arrives at Ravena Reid's farm, he's eight years too late for the elopement they'd once planned—and it's far too early to win her forgiveness. He's seriously wounded, though, and she can't turn him away, though she knows better than to trust him. Yes, it's wonderful having help with the farm, and with the orphans she fosters, but if she opens her heart, she'll get hurt again when he leaves. And Tex always leaves.
As a notorious bank robber, Tex is used to danger. Yet reuniting with the only woman he's ever loved is the riskiest thing he's ever done. All he wants is to stay with Ravena and the children. But can he build a new start before his past catches up with him?
My Review: 4 Stars
I really enjoyed THE OUTLAW'S SECRET and this story is about Tate's twin brother, the Texas Titan. I always picture an outlaw, especially one of the Texas Titan's caliber, to be black-hearted, evil, unfeeling, and cold. Tex may be a little hardened because of his years as a criminal, but he's not so far gone that he can't come around, especially with the help of an old girlfriend and her ragtag houseful of orphans. Sometimes it truly takes a scary situation to turn things around and Tex is ready for a change.
Ravena has got to be the most patient, loving, and accepting woman ever! Sometimes I can barely manage my own crew of four kids, but her heart is always willing to draw more in. These kids have personality in spades and I adored each one of them. It would be hard to let go of a past disappointment and to not hold a grudge, but Ravena doesn't have a mean, spiteful bone in her body.
I enjoyed the gentle chemistry between these two and the way they each worked through trust issues. I love the descriptions of their every day lives and the way the past and present fit together. There are many things to be resolved and through journeys of self-discovery and responsibility, a satisfying conclusion resulted.
Content: mild romance; mild-moderate religious elements (characters find themselves through religion); mild violence.

Lawman in Disguise
Getting taken hostage by a gang of train robbers wasn't in dime novelist Essie Vanderfair's plans, but interviewing these men could make her career soar. Especially since the gang includes legendary outlaw Tex Beckett, better known as the Texas Titan. Tex is famed for his protection of women and children, so she'll be fine…right?
Keeping the gang in line was hard enough before a stubborn, beautiful writer interfered. Now Tex is scrambling to keep Essie safe, to gather evidence against the gang and most of all to hide his dangerous secrets. First, that he's a detective working undercover. And second, that he's not the Texas Titan at all, but Tex's twin brother, Tate Beckett.
