Overview

In a tender story of fateful encounters and second chances, Karen Leabo maps the territory of true yearning and its power to heal old sorrows.
 
Though it’s been years since Sloan Bennett has seen Lana Gaston, time melts instantly when he comes to her rescue during a Texas thunderstorm. Lana was everything a teenage bad boy couldn’t have . . . but she felt like his for three magical weeks. Then she broke his heart—and Sloan walked away from Destiny, Texas. But now he’s back, wearing a badge, and wondering if fate has decided to give him another chance.
 
A struggling single mom, Lana can’t help looking back at all the wrong choices she made. With Sloan so close again, she’s filled with old regrets and deep new longing. Could the silly souvenir of a policeman’s badge, given to her by a fortune-teller, have more meaning than she ever dared to dream? Once, Lana didn’t have the courage to tell Sloan how much she cared. So she hurt him instead. But as his sensual lips dare to kiss away yesterday’s pain, she’ll risk her heart to let him know that this time, she’s his forever.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Blaze of Winter, Light My Fire, and Santerra’s Sin.

Thanks to the publisher, Random house Publishing Group, and NetGalley for the chance to read this! Ms. Leabo did an excellent job creating a truly believable story of second chance and long lost love. This story is an excellent example of capturing the heart of the story without all the unnecessary fluff. The heroine did grate on my nerves a little; she was a little too innocent, naive and immature. As a teenager you can expect that kind of stuff – however, her character never seemed to develop further. Sloan came from humble beginnings, and alcoholic parents. Sloan & Lana are a very appealing couple -- their history added a rich element to their love story. Neither had forgotten the other. I loved the fortune-teller bits! I genuinely enjoyed this book. It was my first introduction to the author. It was by some standards a simple story. If you’re looking for big action or deep profound moments this isn't for you. But it was fun, touching, and sexy! Disclosure: This ebook was provided to me free of charge through NetGalley for the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments, and ratings are my own.

This is a re-issue from nearly 20 years ago (1997) not written in 2012. This story had great potential but Lana was so totally annoying to the point of being unlikable, grow up and quit being so immature. I had to make myself finish reading the book. Too many other great books to waste time here.

By: Karen Leabo Published By: Random House Publishing Group Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Book Blog For: GMTA Series: The Brides of Destiny#2 Review: "Lana's Lawman" by Karen Leabo a good contemporary romance read about second chances and the second in 'The Brides of Destiny.' This read was of two (Lana and Sloan) people who had been love for around three weeks during their senior year but that soon ended and each when on there many ways until ten years later. Now, we find that Lana is divorced from Bart, her cheating husband and has a eight year old son and struggles daily to get by taking care of her son (Rob) and doing all of this while getting her college education. On her way to her friend, Callie's wedding Lana has a accident and she ends up in a ditch and this is where Sloan Bennett enters back in to her life. Lana finds out he is now a police officer. A lots has changed from Sloan's 'bad boy' days. What will happen as we see that these two people still love each other but will have a hard time trying to work out those feelings to each other. This is where I say you must pick up "Lana's Lawman" to read the outcome of it all. The characters were all very well developed that gave the reader an interesting drama and also giving you a well written novel that I would recommend as a good read.

This is the first of a series that I got a kick out of. Karen writes exactly how women think even though as a reader I wish the protagonists would get their heads out of their asses sooner. Good read.
