Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble

Since I reviewed Blue Moon Promise back in March of 2012 I've been waiting for the next book in the Under Texas Stars series and book two was everything I'd hoped it would be. As with any of Coble's series there's no need to read the books in order but if you have read the first one (Blue Moon Promise) then you had a little more back story on Nate and Lucy. It was so surprise at all to me that I fell in love with Margaret in the opening chapter since I could relate to her feelings about being so tall and more at home doing man's work. Combine that with the fact that I have a red-headed sister who can be a little stubborn at times and you pretty much have a main character who is a composite of the two of us! When Daniel Cutler is hired by Margaret's father to be the new foreman on their ranch I knew that was going to be trouble in both a good and bad way. It's obvious from the beginning that while both Margaret and Daniel are attracted to each other they are both wrestling with demons from their past. As danger makes its way to the ranch they are each in harm's way and soon are forced to deal with Daniel's past and Margaret's uncertainty about the future. In true Colleen Coble fashion the story unfolds amidst romance and mystery and I found myself yet again surprised at how things turned out in the end!

About Safe in His Arms
 
Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.
Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She's convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.
So when Margaret's father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she's frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she's downright worried. Daniel swears he's not involved, but Margaret's not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic "accidents" threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.
