Texas Outlaws: Jesse-Kimberley Raye

Texas Outlaws: Jesse Kimberley Raye Harlequin Blaze, Dec 17 2013, $5.50 ISBN: 9780373797844 Jesse James Chisholm knows first-hand that the sins of his late famous outlaw father pass on to the child; as his dad robbed banks so the citizens of Lost Gun, Texas assumed he and his brothers inherited his felonious gene. Considered a pariah by most residents, Jesse left town to become a bull riding champion. He comes home for just about the only person who could bring him back to Lost Gun; the marriage of Pete Gunner who saved him (and his siblings) when he was a teen. The downside of coming home is seeing Gracie Jones, who twelve years ago dumped him. He recalls her being the bad girl equal to his bad boy, but now Gracie is a respectable conservative mayor-elect. Neither desires that their attraction remains stratospheric as love proves very powerful. The first Chisholm brothers’ Texas Outlaws is a heated second chance at love romance starring two fascinating protagonists working on their respective images while dealing with torrid desires. Although the action slows down at times, sub-genre fans will enjoy the son of a bank robber and the newly elected mayor struggling with quenching the inferno that binds them. Harriet Klausner
