    Leah and the Bounty Hunter is a sure Bullseye

    Leah and the Bounty Hunter By Elaine Levine Copyright August 2011 Publisher Zebra Historical Romance To Leah Morgan's mind, the last thing her hometown of Defiance needs is another gunman stalking its dusty streets-especially one as sweet-talking and fine-looking as Jace Gage. Despite her warnings, the infuriating man seems determined to meddle in her life and risk his own, all for a town that can't be saved and a heart she locked away long ago. Professional bounty hunter Jace Gage has cleaned up plenty of corrupt towns in his lifetime, and he knows he can handle whatever Defiance's thugs have to offer. But the town's most lawful citizen is another story. Beautiful, willful and exasperating at every turn, Leah is the one person capable of bringing the ruthless gunslinger to his knees-and capturing his desire with a single kiss. Jace and Leah are thrown together during one of his jobs. He is being paid by the U.S. Marshal's office to capture or take out the Sheriff of Defiance. After of course he finds out where the sheriff is hiding the gold he's stolen from the various shipments passing through his area. Jace is riding leisurely into town when he sees what appears to be a young man being attacked by two ruffians. Not one to normally get involved he continues watching the scene play out. When the young person's shirt is ripped open Jace realizes that this is in fact a girl or young woman and decides to step in. As he approaches he sees the young woman knee one attacker while ordering her wolf (yes, I said wolf) to attack the other guy. This was Jace's introduction to Leah Morgan, who is another reason he's in town. He's been tasked by some friends to protect her while he's there. I've never been a fan or a reader of Historical Romance, not even Western ones. This book took me totally by surprise. It's local, the time frame, and the cast of characters brought me back to the TV westerns and Western movies I watched back in the 1950's. Very nicely done. FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the publishers, who only asked for a fair review.

    The latest trip to post Civil War Defiance is a wonderful tale

    Three years ago, Jace Gage's wife had him hung. He survived his demise and since the near death experience, the Civil War veteran has become a ruthless Avenger; a bounty hunter with no mercy.

    In 1868 desperate to clean up lawless Defiance, Dakota Territory whose worst thug is Sheriff Bill Kemp, the Cheyenne U.S. Marshal hires Jace. He enters Defiance defiant, as he no longer fears death and is unconcerned with collateral damage. However, the man assumed to have no heart hits a soul searching roadblock when he saves Leah Morgan and her "nice pet" from an assault by one of Kemp's contemptible deputies. He orders her to stay out of harm's way but she refuses, which means he must keep safe the woman who stole his heart.

    The latest trip to post Civil War Defiance is a wonderful tale of second chances starring a famous aloof Avenger and a tough foolish heroine. The lead characters and their relationship is similar in tone to that of the previous titled protagonists (in Rachel and the Hired Gun, and Audrey and the Maverick), but bring different baggage that keeps the "Town without Pity" (Gene Pitney) fresh.

    Great Read!

    This was my favorite out of the series by Elaine Levine because the story really pulled at my heartstrings. I think it really helped that we were introduced to Leah & Jace early on. Especially with Jace's emotional scene in Audrey & the Maverick. This is definitely worth a second read on my part!

    another good western story

    I am a person who likes stories about the west and this is a good one and she is a very good author. I am looking forward of reading some more of her books.

    Awesome Historic Romance!

    This novel, a series titled Men of Defiance, is one that will suck you in and not let go of you until the end! Although I've not read the other two novels, I'm totally in love with Levine! I fell in love with Leah and Jace right from the start!

    Leah Morgan has led a difficult life in Defiance! She has witnessed on numerous occasions episodes of terrible acts upon her mother, leaving her scared and as skittish as a jackrabbit! The sheriff of Defiance and his group of followers are downright evil and think they own the town. Yet, bad boy bounty hunter Jace Gage arrives and is on a mission -- to clean up Defiance.

    As the reader, you can see the storm brewing between Leah and Jace from page one when Jace rides into town. Jace automatically feels overprotective instincts for Leah, who could care less. Leah has been doing fine on her own and feels she doesn't need a man, a gun fighter, to help her in any sort of manner. Yet, slowly, the two fall in love with each other, but don't want to admit it to the other or themselves.

    The climax of the story transpires when Jace finally cleans up Defiance, arresting the sheriff and his gang. Leah discovers secrets that have been hidden from her by the entire town. She feels threatens and takes off for the mountains for weeks on end. Jace is heartbroken, wondering if the woman he knows he is to spend the rest of his life with will ever return. As the reader, I was able to sympathize with Jace, wanting Leah to return, so that they could have that happily ever after they both deserved.

    Levine does an awesome job pulling the reader into the story. You feel the sympathy she wants you to experience towards Leah and Jace, the town and its people. You can visualize the town 140+ years ago, living sparsely just like Leah and the rest of the town. The creative juice that Levine has is amazing. I'm typically not a historic romance reader, but Levine has done an awesome job here.
