SAFE IN HIS ARMS by Colleen Coble

Margaret O'Brien grew up a rancher's daughter and can handle the hard work as good as any man. She learned to love the land because she's sure no man would ever want her. She's not dainty and pretty like other women. Her father wants more for Margaret than working herself from dawn to dust. So to help out, he hires Daniel Cutler as foreman. She doesn't want a foreman and isn't convinced Daniel can do the work. Then she overhears a conversation that leads her to believe Daniel's part of a gang of bank robbers. He tells her he's not involved but she knows there are things he's not telling her. But how can a bank robber talk so confidently about his faith in God and treat her with such kindness? When tragedy strikes will Margaret be able to not only trust God but trust the man who still raises her suspicions but one she's also coming to love?

I thoroughly enjoyed Safe in His Arms. I remember getting to know Margaret in Blue Moon Promise and was excited to hear her story. Margaret is not your typical leading lady. She doesn't feel very womanly or attractive but instead very awkward. If you have ever felt self-conscience about something then you can easily relate to Margaret. Daniel was the perfect leading man. I loved the way he encouraged Margaret but I also liked that her strength didn't intimidate him. The chemistry between them was terrific. I loved it! The story is filled with twists and turns, danger, suspense and of course romance. One thing I really liked was that Nate and Lucy (from Blue Moon Promise) are very much a part of the story. I also loved how the author lets the reader know that God made each of us different and beautiful and He loves us as we are, warts and all! Beauty is much more than your outward appearance. This is book 2 in the Under Texas Stars Series. You can read it as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading Blue Moon Promise first. So hurry on down to Texas. Danger may be lurking, but don't worry you'll be Safe in His Arms!
