Overview

In a Cowboy's Arms by Janette Kenny

Love On The Run. . .

Colorado sheriff Dade Logan has waited twenty years to reunite with his long lost sister, Daisy. But when she finally turns up, they barely recognize each other. That's because the beautiful stranger isn't Daisy, but her childhood friend Maggie, on the run from an impending marriage. Moved by this last link to Daisy, Dade determines to bend any law that stands between him, his sister—and the intriguing Maggie. . .

Maggie Sutton will risk anything to escape her fate, though accompanying the broad-shouldered sheriff in his pursuit of Daisy rattles her to the core. But as their search—and desire for one another—escalates, the two provoke a vicious bounty hunter, one who threatens their hopes for a future together. . .

The plot was good, but the book has several confusing parts to it. I had to go back a page or two several times to make sure I hadn't misread or missed something. Great characters but time-line seemed unreal. Journey was too quick to be made on horseback in only a week. And I was VERY disappointed to not have a conclusion regarding Daisy. Love scenes were okay but not smoking hot. The whole book had many holes that needed to be filled.

I've always said that if every man who walked the face of the Earth wore a cowboy hat, life would be much better for the female population. There's just something about a man in one of those fantastic accessories. Perhaps, if the stunning vamp and werewolf in everybody's beloved Twilight wore Stetsons, than I'd finally understand what all the fuss is about. With this novel, however, I completely understand the fuss. Dade Logan is our main character. He's a lawman in Placid, Colorado in the year 1895, and is basically.bored. There's not a whole lot of crime in the small town of Placid. In fact, except for jailing the town drunk once in a while, Dade basically just spends all his time waiting for the one woman that he's dying to see again step off the train. Dade has a rough background. He has a variety of family members; some are foster family who took his shares of a ranch away and left Dade with nothing - while other family members are blood kin, and are a notorious gang of outlaws that Dade has tried to get away from for a long time. The one member of his family he does want to see more than anything is his little sister, Daisy. One day Daisy does step off the train into his small town, and Dade is beyond excited. She wears the cameo that their mother used to wear, so Dade knows that she's most definitely his long-lost sister. Unfortunately, for Dade, she has no idea that she even has a brother and can't understand why she would never have been told about him. Not only is she completely confused, but she's also extremely frightened. And.frightened for a very good reason.she's not Daisy. Maggie Sutten is the woman's name, and she knew Daisy Logan a long time ago when they were riding on an orphan train together. Coming upon a long lost brother, Maggie has no idea what to do. She can play along, but not for very long, seeing as that she's on the run from a bounty hunter. Not only that, but Maggie soon finds herself extremely attracted to Dade Logan - not exactly a feeling to have for someone who's supposed to be your brother. The boring town turns extremely exciting when Maggie tries to outwit, outplay, and outlast the men after her in order to disappear; The Logan Gang shows up in Dade's backyard ready to rob banks and make his life miserable; and, a local banker, who may have killed his own wife, and knows the bounty hunter that's tracking Maggie, decides to add himself into the already crowded, confused mess. Janette Kenny has done it again. Her story is fun, exciting, and offers a romance that makes all female readers extremely desperate to go back to the Old West and track down these men she writes about. Enjoy!

Maggie Sutton met Daisy Logan on the orphan train years ago. Now, not wanting to marry though having no choice if she stays, Maggie flees using Daisy's identity as a cover. In 1895 Colorado, Sheriff Dade Logan meets "Daisy" but she fails to recognize him. He quickly concludes she is not who she claims to be though he has not seen his sister Daisy in two decades when as siblings they were separated. Dade gets her to admit she is Margaret Sutton. To her consternation she is also attracted to the lawman-rancher; Maggie agrees to help him find Daisy. As they search for Daisy, an unscrupulous bounty hunter stalks Maggie and his outlawing relatives cause them havoc. This is a terrific western romance starring two strong characters and like its predecessor (see A Cowboy Christmas) leaves the audience believing they are in 1895 in the wild west (Colorado in this case, Wyoming previously). The story line is fast-paced with a strong lead couple and powerful support cast. With a solid fine overarching mystery and knowing at least one more "Foster Brothers" cowboy romance will be published, readers will appreciate this delightful entry. Harriet Klausner

The bare bones of the story were good. Brother searching desperately for sister put on Orphan Train. Maggie running from forced marriage to rich man. Dade And Maggie have the hots for each other. Now I get that its a romance but they seemed to be retreading the same words and feeling in every single chapter. On top of that after Dade spends enormous time and energy evading Mr Rich---she goes behind his back and sends a telegram to her pursuer. Which worked out because it turns out he didn't want her anyway!! Oh and they never do find his sister. How annoying is that. There is one more subplot but its to drab and confusing to mention.

In a Cowboy¿s Arms is the second installment of The Lost Sons trilogy. This story is about the middle son¿s search for his lost sister, but instead he finds the love of a good woman. Dade Logan has one true goal in his life¿to find his baby sister Daisy. As children they were put into an orphanage by their father Clete Logan, who later became an outlaw and the leader of the Logan Gang. They were separated when Daisy was put on the orphan train and shipped out west. Now over two decades later, Dade is the Sheriff of a small town in Colorado, the town that is the last known location of Daisy. When Maggie Sutton got off the train in Placid, Colorado she was a woman who was hiding from a dismal future. Using the name of a friend from her childhood, she had no idea what kind of consequences were in store for her. All she anticipated was a quick stop over until she figured out her future plans. What she didn¿t expect was to find a man that was claiming to be her brother, the brother to Daisy Logan. Two people running; one from her future and one that is running to find his past. Their journey takes them many miles and together they find what they were both missing¿each other. This is a sweet tale. Dade and Maggie¿s worlds collide and together they find ways to heal and be stronger together. I found myself enjoying this book. Not that I didn¿t expect any less from Ms. Kenny. It was a pleasant read with no surprises and very little nail biting excitement, just good old fashioned romance. There were no clichéd misunderstandings, odd love triangles or erotic sex scenes, just good steamy reading. I will say though, Maggie¿s seduction of Dade was very cute and yet sexy. It was a nice touch to a historical romance novel. I will admit that I did adore Reid¿s novel, A Cowboys Christmas, more. Maybe it was because he was more tortured and in need of saving or maybe because there was a touch of mystery, oh who knows. Dade was just a man with a mission and short of his outlaw family, had little baggage in my eyes. In a Cowboy¿s Arms is still a lovely story that fits nicely in this trilogy. I am looking forward to Trey¿s novel: Cowboy Come Home. So if you are looking for an enjoyable and easy read then pick up In a Cowboy¿s Arms. It is a charming look into the historical west and the sexy cowboys that roam the plains.

Colorado Sherrif Dade Logan has waited 20 years to be reunited with his sister Daisy. But when she turns up she doesn't know him and he cannot recognize her. What he doesn't know is that it's not really Daisy he is meeting, but her friend Maggie Sutton. Maggie is in trouble and will do anything she has to do to escape her troubles., even impersonate another person. Only the closer she gets to Dade, the more she wants to open up to him. But is it too dangerous to trust a lawman? And will he break more than her heart by the time she is done? In a Cowboy's Arms by Janette Kenny is a fast-paced romance with enough action and adventure mixed in to keep you turning pages all the faster. I loved the combination of angst and romance that kept me wanting more. Dade is a alpha cowboy who is determined to find his sister. With the tragedies both he and his sister went through, I cannot say I blame him for being so determined. I think he is a wonderful person, despite his circumstances. I was cheering for him all the way. Likewise, Maggie is a feisty character and a survivor. I really appreciated seeing a female character that had a backbone and wasn't afraid to use it. Yet, she has an inner softness that made me really like her and want the best for her. In a Cowboys Arms is a wonderful read with strong characters and a storyline I couldn't let go of. This is my first novel by Janette Kenny, but if In a Cowboys Arms is anything to go by, I am certain I will really enjoy any Kenny book and the characters it brings to life.
