Outlaw’s Redemption by Lynda Cox
Releasing October 18, 2019
My Rating: ❤️❤️❤️❤️ ❤️ Spice Level: 💋 1/2
Sometimes you can’t tell the end of a story by the color of hat someone wears and sometimes, second chances change everything…
Clay Denton is living on borrowed time. The only thing keeping him from a dance for the hangman is a promise he made to find a US Marshal’s niece. Clay doesn’t care if it’s vengeance the marshal really wants. As long as the man believes Clay’s looking for Josephine, he’s free to keep living.
Josephine Myers lives on the run, never straying too far from the towns of Purgatory or Redemption. She won’t leave, even though to stay means she’s putting herself right into the line of fire. She’s too frightened to fight back, and much too afraid to run far. Until Clay rides into her life, saving her from a terrible attack.
Clay and Josephine’s redemption might come at a steep price, depending on who wins. The white hat…or the black.
Lynda puts a unique spin on how this story of redemption is told. An angel and fallen angel are watching things unfold to see if love can really change the outcome of what they know will happen. I was on pins and needles throughout the whole story especially when there was unexpected interference.
Something else Lynda does an amazing job at is writing villains that make your skin crawl and having them meet the perfect ending. The ending will bring tears to your eyes for so many reasons and you won’t want it to end.
Josephine was frightened and alone in the world until Clay and Princess saved her and gave her the strength to fight. I loved seeing her remember the past and telling her uncle what she wanted for Clay. She wasn’t going to give up on Clay or let anyone else suffer as she had.
Clay has spent two searching for her to avoid hanging, but he also saw what happened all those years ago and wants the villains to pay. When he threatened people he meant it and it could send shivers down your spin. I loved that he wasn’t going to let her go back even if it meant his death.
Princess the dog deserves to be talked about because he is an amazing dog. He would give his life to protect Clay and Josephine and hated it when he was kept away. I loved how well trained he was.
