Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble



About Safe in His Arms
 
Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.
Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She's convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.
So when Margaret's father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she's frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she's downright worried. Daniel swears he's not involved, but Margaret's not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic "accidents" threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her. 
 

My Review:

Wow!  I just LOVE Colleen's historical fiction!  She writes so beautifully and descriptively, I could see the Triple T and felt like I was there.  I also identified with Margaret-- I'm 5'10" and have never felt like the delicate, pretty, little woman, but I'm pretty tough. :)  I love that someone finally wrote a heroine that wasn't petite and a wisp of a woman.  I get so frustrated reading those novels sometimes.  

Anyhow, the story was well written, it was funny, sweet and frustrating with just enough mystery to keep me hanging on!  Definitely an enjoyable read!!
