Zanna's Outlaw --

Buck Grayson once lived within the boundaries of the law and will again for Zanna.

Notorious outlaw Buck Grayson is set to hang for the one murder he didn't commit, until a last minute pardon sets him free. But there's a condition to the pardon, one that sours Buck's gut. He's to cease outlawing and bring law and order to Revolving Point, Texas. The border town along the Rio has a reputation worse than his, even after a fire destroyed the saloons and chased away the rabble rousers. But Zanna is there and still in danger from the fancy-pants attorney seeking revenge against her. To keep her safe, Buck will pin the star to his chest and settle the matter for good. Then he'll give Zanna what she wants--his name.

Former soiled dove Suzanna Reynolds wants respectability, a home and children, and she wants them with Buck. Trouble is, Buck isn't the settling type and has never openly acknowledged she's his woman. Convinced Buck only took the sheriff's job to settle a score and not to please her, Suzanna demands he court her to prove his love or leave town for good.  


5 Stars by Shanna Hatfield: If you enjoy classic westerns, Zanna's Outlaw will keep you entertained from the first page. Outlaws, gunfights, a sheriff seeking redemption, and the dreams of a former soiled dove - it's all in this page turning romance by Julie Lence. The two main characters, Buck and Zanna, showed grit and determination, but the author also let us look into their hearts and see a softer side. It's easy to find yourself cheering them on and admiring Zanna's tenacity. A few unexpected twists and turns make for an all-around engaging good read.

5 Stars by Agnes Alexander: Zanna's Outlaw is the first in Ms. Lence's Revolving Point series. I liked the main characters and was pleased at the way she set up the following books. The book not only has an interesting plot, but shows how a 'bad' man can turn 'good' when forced to do so. I look forward to reading about the rest of Buck's gang in the following books. If you enjoy western romance, this is a good book to start with. 

5 Stars by Lana Williams: I haven't read a western romance in quite a while and was captivated by Buck and Zanna's story! The characters are well developed and the tension between them palpable. The story has some surprising twists that will keep you turning pages to the end!

5 Stars by Avid Reader: Zanna's Outlaw is a classic western from the beginning to end. If you like classic western movies, then you're going to love this book. I haven't read a Western in quite a while but this author pulls you in from the first page and keeps you guessing if Zanna will get her Outlaw. The characters are well developed and as you read along you'll find yourself cheering for Zanna and Buck. You'll be proud of how Zanna has managed while Buck was in prison. And you'll love the background of how he came to be an outlaw. The twists and turns of the plot only make for a richer story and the town of Revolving Point, Texas is a place that could've been pulled from the pages of history. Well done, Ms. Lence. I'm off to pick up you your next book. 

5 Stars by Linda G:   I have enjoyed all of the books in this series. You will not be disappointed with this book. It is suspenseful, exciting, and a great love story.

5 Stars by Ginger Simpson:  Zanna's Outlaw caught my attention from the beginning...and not only due to identifiable characters, but because of the author's ability to show a story so well I felt imprisoned with the hero and understood why he wouldn't want Zanna there when he hung. Then I suddenly stepped into Zanna's shoes and saw what it's like to put a man's needs above my care so deeply that worry is a common occurrence because of knowing the person you love inside and out. Since I've always been the "dead in a ditch" persona rather than thinking everything will be fine, I truly identified with Zanna and did a lot of hand wringing myself. Lots of great secondary characters too that added a lot of color to the era.

This was an exciting story that really took a step into the mystery genre because you never expect to see the true villain in the end. You simply think you know and have the ending all figured out. WRONG!. You must read Zanna's outlaw and draw your own conclusions. If you don't agree with me, I'm sorry, but I'l have to consider you a troll on the prowl just looking to dump on good work.



Buck  stepped inside, closed the door and didn't make a move toward her. "That woman downstairs is worse than Emma."

"Did you come up here to complain?" She folded her arms beneath her breasts.

"I came to tell you I took this damn job for you.” Plus, it made it easier to flush out Hanson’s hired guns before they harmed her. But she didn’t need to know that. She’d want to help and would do so behind his back if he didn’t let her. “Not because I want a tumble between the sheets, but because you're my woman. That used to mean something to you."

"It still would if you’d tell me you love me."

"Dammit, Zanna. You know I do."

"Then say it," she challenged. "And don't give me the same old line about words being hard for you."

"They are." At least, those words were. The last time he'd said them his family had been murdered. With enemies lurking in the shadows, the same could happen to her. Pissing her off was one thing. He could tolerate her icy glare. Losing her forever was a whole different matter. "That doesn't mean I don't feel them."

She sighed irritably and looked away.

"Doesn’t my coming here count for something when I swore I wouldn’t?”

"If you can't say the words," she returned her gaze to him, "then I want you to prove you love me and intend to stay."


"By courting me."

"What the hell do you think the last three years have been?"

"I thought I knew, but now I’m not so sure.” She glared at him. “You say I’m your woman. Prove it.”

"Sonofabitch, Zanna. Couldn’t you just beat me with your fry pan?"

"No," she said in that same snotty tone that had beaten him many times in the past.
