Safe in His Arms

Publisher: Thomas Nelson
January 2013
ISBN: 978-1-5955-4914-3
Genre: Historical romance

Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.

Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O’Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she’s made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She’s convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.

So when Margaret’s father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she’s frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she’s downright worried. Daniel swears he’s not involved, but Margaret’s not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic “accidents” threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.

SAFE IN HIS ARMS is the second book in Ms. Coble’s Under Texas Stars series. It easily stands alone, but readers will want to read Blue Moon Promise to meet some of the other characters, such as Margaret’s best friend.

I enjoyed this story a lot. Historicals usually bore me but Daniel intrigued me and I fell in love with him. I had to keep reading to know his story. I felt kind of sorry for Margaret, feeling so down on herself and unwanted. She broke my heart. I wanted them to find happiness.  If you like historicals you can’t miss SAFE IN HIS ARMS. Fantastic read. And I loved the chemistry between Daniel and Margaret. $15.99. 320 pages.  5 stars.
