Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Prolific romance author Lough (Beautiful Bandit) continues the Lone Star Legends series set in late–19th-century Texas. Nurse Levee O'Reilly's physician husband, Liam, is killed by bandits robbing the stagecoach the couple is riding to Mexico to open a medical clinic. Levee, who has also suffered two miscarriages, begins life again in the small border town of Eagle Pass, teaching school and catching the eye of rancher Dan Neville, one of the large Neville clan. Dan's limp is only the tip of a backstory that makes the rancher feel unworthy of Levee, one of the first women in the country to obtain a nursing degree. Romantic tension is sustained through a long series of complications, including a killer tornado and a long cattle drive. Lough's fans will likely not mind that this is a predictable tale. (Jan.)

    Satisfying read! I enjoyed every moment!

    In Maverick Heart, the second installment in the Lone Star Legends series, Loree Lough brings us back to Eagle Pass, Texas. It's 1888, and Loree invites us to join her in a "rousing Wild-West adventure," complete with bandits, rustlers, cattle drives, tornadoes, and so much more!

    Loree has an excellent knack for creating characters that truly come to life. You really get the sense that you know them, and you care about them. I was left feeling like I'd want to join the Nevilles for supper, or sit a spell on the porch with some lemonade. The dialogue is so well done, and I love the wit and humor that Loree has laced throughout the book.

    I appreciate the fact that Levee O'Reilly was such a strong woman, in addition to a strong woman of faith. She was faced with adversity, but no matter what situation she was in, she rose to the occasion. She's strong, capable, resourceful, and calm under pressure. She could certainly hold her own! With her perseverance, faithfulness, strong work ethic, willingness to serve others, and her dependence on God, I found her to be the type of woman that I would look up to in real life. If you're looking for a well written, satisfying, memorable story, look no further! I enjoyed every moment that I spent immersed in the pages of Maverick Heart! There was never a dull moment, and each page brought plenty of action, adventure, and romantic tension between Dan and Levee. The story never slowed down, and definitely kept my interest from start to finish! I closed the book with a smile on my face, and an eagerness to read book three in this fantastic series! Unbridled Hope, book three, is scheduled to release on July 5, 2011.
