A Texan's Honor by Shelley Gray

Book One in the Heart of a Hero series, A Texan's Promise (which I reviewed here) was a really good read by an author new to me.  This second installment in the series, A Texan's Honor, was even better.

Jamie finds herself unloved and unappreciated after her brothers are killed in the Civil War.  When her parents are dead, she travels to live with her old maid aunts in Kansas where she plans to marry a young man with whom she has been corresponding. But, when outlaws take over the train Jamie is on, her life takes an unexpected turn- especially when one of the outlaws turns out to be more than he appears.

I enjoyed the first book in the series, but I thought some of it was a little predictable and seemed to drag in the middle of the story.  Not so with this installment.  Jamie was the perfect character- a sweet, innocent young women who needed the protection of our hero- Will, yet a fiery and determined personality.  The story was fast -paced and really not predictable.  I loved finding out more about Scout Proffit- the infamous brother of hero Clayton from Book One.  And, I found myself oohing and aahing over the sweet romance that bloomed between Jamie and Will.  The story is inspiring- a Christian fiction read that teaches and encourages without preaching.  I am really hoping for further books in the series!

This read would be a PG rating because of some adult content, and I would give it a definite five star rating!  So good!

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley for review purposes.  All opinions are entirely my own.
