The Sheriff and the Outlaw

Polly Brown was nothing like typical women whose only dream was to marry and start a family. The daughter of a notorious outlaw, Polly grew up wearing six-guns and learning to ride horses and cook over an open fire. But while being pursued by an enemy with a grudge, Polly decides her best option is to pose as a mail-order-bride. In the disguise of a proper lady, she knows there is no way her enemy will recognize her. Little does Polly know that the husband waiting for her is the handsome sheriff of Indian Trails.

Sheriff Ben MacLain isn't a man to be easily fooled. He quickly realizes that Polly is not who she says, but after seeing how quickly his daughter has taken to Polly, Ben finds himself in no hurry to send her away. Instead he tries to strike a deal: marriage or jail. With outstanding warrants for Polly's arrest, Ben knows this may be his only chance to convince Polly to stay, and although he plans to have a marriage of convenience for the sake of his daughter, the passion that draws the two together cannot be denied.

    From Gunslinger to Lady

    MacLain's Wife by Jillian Hart Originally published in 2000 under Zebra Kensington by Jill Henry.

    Talk about a twist of fate. The whiny chit who had too much perfume was heading to Indian Trails, Montana to marry the sheriff there. Polly Brown sat across the seat of the Stagecoach being annoyed by her whimpering and crying. Raised by her outlaw father, or she should say used as a servant to take care of him and his outlaw friends, she never wore a dress or looked anything close to this gal. When the stage suddenly stopped, Polly drew her gun and was ready for anything while the whiner and the elderly woman panicked. Ends up Roland, the rich bankers son, chose to take responsibility for the pregnant woman and marry her after all. Not having time to unload her luggage, Miss Pauline Curtis turned to Polly and calling her the "gun-toting girl" told her she could have all her luggage. Finding a note in the purse, Polly used the little bit of reading skill to see the girl was suppose cook and clean for the sheriff. What Polly could not read was that Pauline was to marry him. By the time the stage gets to Indian Trails a beautiful woman emerges from the stage, not the Levi clad gunslinger. And good thing for Polly as Bad Bart Dixon was already in town waiting for her.

    Polly is met by Emily, Ben MacLain's daughter. With Bart waiting there she must continue to be Pauline. The man who has promised to kill her is being kind and soft spoken, not recognizing the lady as the outlaw. And that starts her adventure that ends up with her being Mrs Polly MacLain.

    Ben don't want a wife. Emily wants a mother and Ben needs someone to take care of her, especially if his own past ever catches up to him. He was not expecting someone like Polly. Polly who he finds sitting in the saloon gambling and drinking, Polly who don't get along with the Family Sunshine Range and almost burns the house down, Polly who makes his blood run hot, Polly who actually made it to town where any one else he tried to hire always married along the way, Polly who was the daughter of a dangerous outlaw and a gunslinger, bounty hunter with her own wanted poster and who could out shoot most men.

    Another really good tale by Jillian.

    Interesting plot, but

    Interesting plot, but not very well written. Digital conversion leaves much to be desired in formatting. Lack of spacing at scene changes makes for abrupt interruption in following the story. I gave up on it about a third of the way in.

    Good book

    I would definitely recommend.... Good story. I do agree with another reviewer, the conversion to digital allowed for a few errors in spacing of scenes. I found myself re-reading several passages to see if I missed something. Despite this, it was a good read. Decent length. It is your usual romance story, but has a good twist. Worth the buy and your time. Enjoy!

    Another good book

    I have always enjoyed Jullian Hart's books. I loved this story line. I did notice some of the writing errors. She normally has a better writing format. I still like the book and love the story. Give it a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Adorable romance

    Heroine tries to be so tough and stubbornly refuses the protection the hero offers. The story has some great characters, heartwarming moments and steamy scenes. A great read!

    Really nice story

    Well worth your time and $. Love a good story with a sassy female & tough hero with a soft heart. Lots of twists & turns to keep it a page turner. Loved his persistance in his pursuit of her trust & love. Sweet sex scene too. Will definatly check out other stories by this auther. On a side not...when shifting from one scene to another within a chapter, there really needs to be a break of some kind. Needed to reread a few paragraghs to disern the storyline jumped from one scene to another.
