Overview

Bestselling author Lori Copeland weaves together elements of a wonderful, classic Western romance with themes of forgiveness and grace.

Falsely convicted of bank robbery, drifter Johnny McAllister is sent to a rehabilitation program in the home of a California judge. When he goes to Judge McMann’s home, his aim is to be a model prisoner, hoping to be released early and return to his life's mission: to kill the man who wiped out his family 15 years before. He’s planned for everything…except his encounter with Ragan, the beautiful and kind housekeeper, and with the generous folks of Barren Flats. But can Johnny let go of his anger and embrace a new life? One that would include Ragan as his bride?

This tender story reveals how even the hard law of the land doesn’t stand a chance when God’s mercy and true love come to reside in a heart.

Formerly titled The Bride of Johnny McAllister, rewritten for the inspirational market.

This is the first book by Lori Copeland that I've read. I really enjoyed it. The romance was delightful and even a bit yummy in some places, though there was one spot where I was like, "Huh? She did not just do that!" But overall I'd recommend it because honestly it held my attention better than most historical westerns do, and it did ring true for the most part. The characters were engaging and very well developed. The spiritual lessons learned made this a worthwhile read, too. I grew very fond of the hero and heroine by book's end. Outlaw's Bride made me chuckle and smile. But most importantly I felt that satisfied "ahhh..." at the end, which for me is essential for a romance to be considered truly romantic.

Outlaw's Bride is a delightful story of love and laughter. When Ragan and her employer, Judge McMann, decide to take on the responsibility of rehabilitating outlaws, she doesn't realize that one certain outlaw is going to touch her heart. There is something about Johnny that doesn't quite make sense and she becomes more and more curious about his past. Why won't he talk about himself? Why is he so quiet? Is he really guilty of robbing a bank or is he innocent? Whatever the answers are to these questions, she knows without a doubt that there's an underlying interest between one another. She can feel it and so can he. Lori writes: He couldn't get involved with her, tempting as the idea might be, but she didn't make it easy. With every passing hour it was harder to ignore her. "Can't we just be friends?" asked Ragan. His tone gentled. If things were different - "I'm not in any position to be a friend or anything else to you. I'm a prisoner, Ragan. I'm here to serve a sentence." "Fine. You have my permission to kiss me." "Kiss you!" He groaned when she lifted her mouth to his. "This is exactly what I'm talking about. We cannot be friends or personally involved." "I didn't ask for lifetime commitment. I asked for a gentleman's kiss." "I am not a gentleman." "Stop talking and kiss me." Well, did Johnny give in and kiss her? You'll have to read the book and see. Lori Copeland has the most witty and unusual ways of making you laugh. Just by adding a playful kitty to the story helps to bring about a lot of humor to this story. And of course, she adds some "nutty" characters, just for a bit of laughter.
