Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Roger Ragan
I love Louie Lamour, enjoy Nicholas Sparks, and Jimmy Stewart was my all time favorite actor. What you have here is a book that falls between Lamour and Sparks and a dabbling similiar to Stewart's Cheyenne Social Club in the mix. Make no mistake this is not a copy cat it stands well on it's own I just drew the smiliarity. I'm a L.J. Martin fan so it was an easy choice to read this book and the Martins together have produced a truly enjoyable read that combines romance, the old west, and some his
Jacksonville, FL - Fish InFan
I am a big fan of L.J. Martin and his historical and western novels, so I decided to give this book, written with his wife, a world-famous romance writer) a try. It was no mistake. I truly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. As with Martin's other books, the concept was well developed, the characters interesting and believable, and the story compelling from start to finish. Although historical romance is not a genre I read often, if these two authors write another one together, I will be th
TOP 1000 REVIEWER - Mary Garmlich
After I started reading this book I realized how much I love the Western genre and need to tap into it more often. The men are tough cowboys with strong women always right by their side or at times standing in front telling them what to do. The only downside for this book for me was the repeat of a crime and there is a little difficulty figuring out who some of the back characters are. This book is worth the time and the love story is one you will remember long after the last page is read.
San Diego, CA - Nancy Hendrickson
I'm a sucker for westerns - a genre it seems a lot of people don't read anymore. The authors did a great job of capturing my interest from the very beginning - who doesn't like the story of the Eastern lady who goes West to find adventure! I've read other stories by L.J. Martin, but none co-written by L.J. and Kat - so was really happy to discover a great old-fashioned yarn. Neat to read an historic western with interesting twists and turns not often seen in other books. Highly recommended.
UK - Mrs. C
Fans of Kat Martin know that she is a consummate storyteller - a wizard with words, her plots sizzle and once you start reading her books you just can't stop.

"Tin Angel" is Kat at her best. I particularly love her historical fiction and, in Tin Angel, the authenticity of Kat's research paints an evocative and vivid portrait of a by-gone era of the late 19th-century American West. This is the perfect setting for a romance! Jessie is a feisty, lovable heroine, while Jake has some "learni

    Can a city girl fall for a country boy?

    Jessie Taggart has packed her bags and left the quiet of civilized Boston for the wilds of San Francisco. Jessie had just lost her father and plans to lay him to rest, and settle the situation with her father's partner Jake Weston. When Jessie arrives in town, she learns very quickly her new "partner" is not happy to see her. The next shock was finding out she does not own not a restaurant as she was thought but a bawdy house and allot property that is more interesting.

    It appears that Jake wants Jessie back in Boston where he thinks she belongs and let him run the business as he sees proper. Jessie disagrees and fights him verbally and legally for her right to be the majority owner in their partnership. But when she is not driving him business crazy she is driving him crazy with passion and she makes him realize that the kind of business he has in mind for her has nothing to do with facts, figures, or balancing the business.

    When accidents turn out to be pre-medicated murder attempts on Jessie the reality that not only Jake does not want her around and she wonders if maybe she should go home. Jake has other ideas and once he taps into both Jessie's business sense and her passion there is not sending her anywhere but his bed.

    The one lesson Jessie has learned from her time in the rugged west is that the men are rough but the one man she has fallen for is tender and loving. Jake may not think a woman has a place in a bawdy house but he knows Jessie is every ounce her father's daughter and can handle anything that comes her way including murder attempts, kidnapping and love of a strong man.

    After I started reading this book I realized how much I love the Western genre and need to tap into it more often. The men are tough cowboys with strong women always right by their side or at times standing in front telling them what to do. The only downside for this book for me was the repeat of a crime and there is a little difficulty figuring out who some of the back characters are. This book is worth the time and the love story is one you will remember long after the last page is read.

    Kat Martin is a Fantastic Author!

    This is another great book by one of my favorite authors. I have read so many Kat Martin books recently and she can "build" a bad boy like nobody else. This is a believable story of San Francisco in the 1870's. Very interesting story line with plenty of suspense as Jessie and Jake fall in love. The proper Jessie from Boston with a fine education learns that her father has been murdered and the restaurant she thought he owned is in reality a gambling hall and a baudy house. She proves to be a tough gal and survives a couple of attempts on her life.. Just enough hot romance to keep things interesting. She owns 51% of the business to Jake's 49% and it looks like that means trouble. This is one story I don't want to ruin for anyone but read it - you'll love it..

     Awesome read
    Narrated in the backdrop of 19th century America, `Tin Angel' By Kat and L.J.Martin, is a story to two strangers -Jessie Taggart and Jake Weston, who meet by fate, part by destiny and finally reunite by the bond of true love that exists between them. With an enigmatic beginning and a fairytale ending, this novel defines the term `Western Romance.' The most remarkable aspect of this book was the variety of emotions that were depicted in it. From Jessie's dilemma as she sets out for San Francisco, leaving her home in Boston, to her trepidation at meeting her partner Jake Weston, and consequent surprise at Jake's appearance--every emotion has been described with precision but brevity. However, it is climax of the book where the emotions are best expressed. The kidnap of Jessie, her feeling of utter loss and fear, her sudden hope at the thought of Jake. Every emotion has been described to perfection.

    Good story if you can handle the typos in the eBook

    The story is good, but the formatting, misspelled words, no spaces between words, sentences repeated behind one another, words missing at beginning of sentence did make it difficult to stay engaged in the story. If it wasn't for that, I would have given this book 5 stars. There are well over 15 mistakes in this eBook; I almost quit reading it because the errors are so bad and so many.
