LYDIA'S GUNSLINGER

LYDIA'S GUNSLINGER
Revolving Point
TX Series
Book Two
by
Julie Lence 


Fleeing the abusive headmaster at the St. Louis orphanage, Roth turned to gunslinging as a means for survival. Years of looting and raiding put his face on several Wanted posters, and instilled in him an aversion to settling down. That is, until he meets Lydia Tyler, the woman building the orphanage along the Rio Grande. Although he's the deputy of Revolving Point, Lydia detests his hardened ways. She's also got trouble on her hands; a headmaster linked to Roth's old nemesis. Roth will do everything he can to help Lydia. And convince her he's not as deplorable as his guns suggest.

Lydia Tyler has no use for guns and violence. All she wants is to build her orphanage and give her children a safe and loving home. Trouble is, Papa has hired a headmaster without her say-so; an arrogant man who schemes to usurp her authority, a man Deputy Roth despises. When Roth offers to rid Lydia of the troublemaker, Lydia doesn't approve of his methods. But that doesn't stop her from melting every time Roth holds her hand. The more she gets to know him, the more she reconsiders his menacing ways. He may be a gunslinger, but the warmth in his gaze hints there's more to him than his pistols.

MY THOUGHTS
This is the second book of the series that I've read and after the first, I'm hooked.  Lydia wanted an orphanage in Revolving Point.  Nothing is going to stop her. She was tough. She also was opinionated.  She knew how she wanted things and that's the way it was going to be.  She had so much to overcome.  Then we have Roth who doesn't have much confidence in himself.  He doesn't think much of himself at all. He's a rough and tough cowboy that is as opinionated as Lydia.  He knows what he wants and that's how it's going to be.   He wants to settle down but figures it isn't going to happen.   The only woman he thinks will be in his life is his sister.  Then along came Lydia and this society lady turns his head.  Will romance be  in the stars for Roth and Lydia.  Twists and turns appear as you turn the pages.   This is a book that will keep you turning the pages and you won't want to put it down.  The author gives you such romance in a western fashion.  I would suggest that you read the books in order.   Ms. Lence gives characters that fit into the roles perfectly.  She not only gives you romance, but adds in a little mystery and a a tad bit of humor.  I love the outlaws of the west and who wouldn't?  Their past has made them who they are and sometimes they are rough and tough on the outside but soft and gentle on the inside.  They hide those softer feelings, that is, until a woman, no, the perfect woman, comes along.
Roth was that kind of man. He was tough on the outside but inside he was gentle.  He had his gentleman standards.  You treated a woman with respect, you were honest, faithful and cared for animals and little ones.  What more could you want from a man, a real man?

I you're a lover of outlaws, outlaws with gentlemen aspects, strong men and women, the ole west, oh, I could go on and on, you will love this book along with the first book.  The author gives you everything you could want in this book.  Don't let this one pass you by.  It's a winner!

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
