Texan's Honor by Shelley Gray Book 2 in Heart of a Hero Series Will McMillian had served in the war under Captain Clayton Proffitt (A Texan's Promise). Since then he has become a US Marshal and works undercover. He had been with the Walton Gang for almost two years now and sometimes Will forgot he was not really one the bad guys. His Boss, James Walton, takes over a train for the bankroll and silver they take hostages. One happened to be a beautiful young woman, Jamilyn Ellis. Will takes Jamie under his protection so the other guys can't hurt her. She reminds him of a time in life when things were better. When it looks like he may not be able to protect her life and virtue from the other men, they jump off the train. But he knows Walton will send the killer, Scout Proffitt, after them. Walton don't leave loose ends. Jamie was heading to her aunts in Kansas. They had agreed to take her in after both of her parents passed away from illness. Only that ride from Colorado to Kansas City changes her life. At first she fears Will, but slowly on she begins to trust him. Some of the story is shown through Scout's view as well. How he is opposite of his law abiding brother, Clayton. Everyone see's Scout as a killer and fears him. Both Will and Scout seem to lose belief that God could still care for them. They had been in the war, and it changed them. Jamie lost her two brothers in the war and it changed her life as well. Her parents mourned her brother's and forgot she existed. Both books in this series have been exceptional. **Received through NetGalley for review.

3.5 Stars Jamilyn was on a train to go live with her aunts because her parents had died. The train was captured by the Walton Gang and she was taken hostage. Jamie feared she was going to die or be violated. When Will who is one of the gang steps in and keeps her from harm she is not sure if she should trust him or hate him. Will is a U.S Marshall and deep undercover in the Walton Gang. He takes it upon himself to keep Jamie safe and finds along the way that his heart is slowly falling for her. Will these two walk away a live and will they find true love along the way? This is one of my top 5 favorite authors and I love her books but I did not like this book as much as I had hoped. What I liked: This is a western historical novel and I always enjoy reading about this time period. It was interesting to read about a gang. I was particularly interested in Scout. What I did not like: To me this was kind of a dark novel. Lots of bad guys. I had trouble connecting with the two main characters and found myself more interested in Scouts story then theirs. The chemistry between Jamie and Will seemed mediocre. Over all this book was just okay to me. I did enjoy reading it but did not get attached to the main characters which made it a little harder for me to read. I did find myself very interested in Scout and I am hoping the third book will be about him. The book was well written but the story was just not what I had hoped but I am looking forward to the third book of this series due out later this year. This book is getting very high reviews from others and is very well written. So please be sure to read other reviews as well. I really wanted to love this book but like I stated above this story line was just not as interesting to me.

Will McMillan jumps a train with the Walton Gang with the intent to rob the train. They emptied the train of it's passengers with the exception of a few men and one woman. They normally would not have held a woman hostage but it was too late to set her free. Will did not like the idea of keeping the woman. She was being man handled by one of the gang when Will stepped in and removed her to another car out of harms way. The young woman was frightened almost to the point of hysterics. Things go wrong with the hold up and the gang start killing the men hostages. Will decided he needed to get this woman off the train and away from the gang. There is another character in this book whom seems like a Billy the Kid type. He shows that even though he is a hired killer he has a tenderness about him. He does what he can to help Will get the woman off the train. This is an adventurous story with secrets, love, faith and honor. Will's character is quite the gentleman bandit. The young woman puts her trust in this stranger in hopes of staying alive. She later can't seem to help the fact that she is developing feelings for Will. When is it lie not a lie? How would that hamper ones budding relationship? You will have to read the book to find out. I highly recommend this book. I have rated this book a 5 out of 5. Disclosure: I was provided a digital copy of this book from Abingdon Press via Netgalley. I was in no way compensated for this review it is my own opinion.

A five star book in my mind. This story draws you in. The charachters are developed well. I laughed and cried and couldn't predict what would happen next.

I had a difficult time with this book. I enjoyed the first one better than this one. There were a lot of times when I could not figure out what the author was trying to say. There were typos and grammatical errors that made it difficult for me to enjoy it. (I don't usually have a big problem with a few typos) Among the one word sentences there would be a very unusual word thrown in that just did not seem to match the rest of the writing style. The storyline was interesting but I could not connect with Jamilyn. I felt that she was a bit spineless even though the story thought she was brave. I just could not see it. It just did not come together for me. I am not sure if I will read the next one.

Good Read! Jamie and Will's story was touching, but I was interested in Scout's story. I don't know if the author's intent was to make him a side story, but Scout was a very engaging character and I wanted to read more about him. I recommend this series. It is very good! Can't wait to read the third one!

I have only read two of this author's books, both of them this series, but they have been very good. I do hope the next one brings full circle and ties up lose ends.

Nice sequal. I really enjoy when a sequal picks up the charecters and doesn't feel the need to repeat so much of the firsts storyline. Will had a hard time balancing commitment to his job and his moral compass to aid Jamie. Glad he made the right choice. To bad life wouldn't let Kitty have the opportunity to overcome her past without stigma of what was out of her control. Can't wait to read how Scout finds peace and rebuilds his life!

Good story content and exciting characters. Would recommend to anyone wanting to lose themselves in a fictional world that steps you back in history to a time of danger, excitement and adventure

Jamylyn is taken hostage during a train robbery. One of the outlaws works to save her and her honor. This leads to many rough, tough, situations she is faced with. An exciting story with plenty of action and a touch of romance.

Great book but she could of gone into more depth at the conclusion of each book. I felt she left reader hanging but maybe she's saving it for the end book we'll see.

When I first saw this book, I was excited to read it. It sounded like it was going to be very suspenseful and action filled. However, this was not the case. This was one of the most anticlimactic books I have ever read. Every time you thought something was going to happen or there would be some action, it was shot down—nothing occurred. Although, this achieved suspense and made me flip pages to see what would happen, it left nothing but disappointment when the set up actions were left tediously resolved. After reading the opening chapters, you are lead to believe that the Walton Gang will be the antagonists of the book, constantly showing up and chasing the protagonists. But this isn’t the case at all. After they escape, the Gang becomes little more than a false, distant threat that never materializes into anything and the remainder of the book results in the protagonists boring and uneventful journey to safety. Looking at the book as a whole, nothing actually happened. It became increasingly annoying how every character had this internal struggle with their emotions and whether or not to reveal them, which they rarely did. This lead the other characters to constantly wonder if feelings where shared. After a while I was begging for someone to just come out and say how they felt so we could get on with the storyline. Essentially all the characters were the same. By the end of the book, I was struggling to finish, really wishing Shelley would cut to the chase. Most of the characters had just gotten annoying, turning into cry babies, and trying to change. To me, the ending didn’t really even match the rest of the storyline. It took a weird turn with Scout and then just sort of ended. There were also quite a few typos and grammar mistakes. Overall, I was very disappointed. I can’t say I’ll ever read another one of Shelley’s books.
