Okay, back to the beginning, where Fancy Holleday, a young and rather remarkable woman, is part of the gang robbing the train protected by Marshal Cord Rawlins. When he has finally tracked her down, he realizes that that might have been the easy part of his job. And even if he gets her back to the Nevada penitentiary, will he be able to let her go?
Fancy is very sweet and despite all her wordly knowledge rather innocent and the more you get to know her the more it is not just Cord who falls for her but the reader falls for her as well. At least I did. Completely, absolutely. And the more I learned about her life the more upset (and furious) I got and the more I just wanted her to be happy and have her dream come true.
Every time Diego Santana, Fancy's "fiancé" and the leader of the bandits robbing the train, entered the picture, I was angry and afraid that somehow, something....well, let's just say that he wasn't my favorite guy and I didn't like the way he treated Fancy. At all.
Enter Cords brothers, Zack and Wes - amazing characters, wonderful brothers (most of the time at least when they are someone else's brothers...) and their aunt Eulalia, a strong and very determined woman with a very big heart.
A bunch of amazingly complex and authentic characters, a lot of heartbreak (and handkerchiefs), hope, blossoming love and a Marshal trying to do the right thing, create a fast-paced, emotional and thrilling story that keeps the reader captivated till the end.
Fancy has grown up to a life of crime, but is now being made to feel that 25 is too old to be any use. When the Outlaw group she works with performs a train robbery, she runs into Cord, a Marshal, and the first law man who has ever failed to fall for her charms. When the robbery takes a turn for the worse, Fancy has to make off on her own. Eventually Cord catches up with her, and along with his two younger brothers, Zack and Wes, they start a journey which takes many unexpected turns.

After having read the Velvet Lies series by Adrienne deWolfe before I was excited to have the opportunity to read Texas Outlaw, and I was not disappointed! I love this book!
The main character, Fancy, is my kind of heroine (as the author said to me that she thought Fancy would be!). She was determined, smart, witty and lets not forget attractive. Ultimately she was a character well ahead of her time. Though she did have a more sensitive side as well, and there was much more to the character than originally meets the eye.
While Fancy was full of tricks and guile, the main lead, Cord, was the opposite, not wanting to lie, cheat or otherwise be dishonest in any aspect of his life. This creates a bit of a contrast and an interesting dynamic between the two leads, particularly when they begin to try outsmarting each other. As well as a romance, Texas Outlaw was a journey of these two characters and the way in which they rub off on each other, with Fancy becoming more fundamentally honest, and Cord becoming more laid back.Read more ›
Would recommend it to anyone.

Fair. It does what it says on the box but it is hardly earth shattering. It helps to pass the time!Published on 21 Jan. 2013 by Steve Butterworth
