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
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!

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
