Having loved reading Georgina Gentry in my younger years, I eagerly jumped at the chance to read her latest book, Colt. The plot wasn’t necessarily new and fresh but still enjoyable none the less.
I found myself drawn into the story right from the start and felt a strong connection with both Colt and Hannah. Hannah was a very strong, fiercely independent woman who was dealt a rough, tough and harsh life from a very young age. Even though Colt was engaged to someone else, he found himself drawn to Hannah’s strength and determination. The romance between Hannah and Colt bloomed over time at a slow and sweet pace throughout the entire book.
While the over the top references to “”being a Texan”" became a bit cheesy by the end of the story, overall I found it to be an enjoyable read.
Even though this is book 3 of The Texans series, it definitely can be read as a standalone. In fact I look forward to reading books 1 and 2 to see what connection they make with this story. Also, I cannot wait to get my hands on upcoming book 4, Travis which will be featuring Hannah’s half-Comanche son from this story.

Are you in the mood for a good ‘ol pre Civil War romance? This is the novel for you! Gentry has done her research for the 1850’s and the Indians versus the army.
Hannah, a stubborn, hardheaded young woman has been taken hostage by a group of Comanche Indians, not known to be friendly towards the white people. She’s been gone four years, leaving her abusive husband to think she’d been killed. She’s taken to their ways, knowing if she doesn’t abide they’d torture her and kill her. . . and then what would happen to her toddler son?
Colt is new to this troop of Calvary men straight from DC. However, having lived among the Comanche Indians he is familiar with their ways. It’s now time to work with the government and make sure no additional people are hurt by these unruly and rough Indians. . .until Hannah comes along.
This fast read will pull you into the love story and want you begging for more!
