Texas Lawmen #2

In The Lawman's Apache Moon (Texas Lawmen #2) by Debra Holt, Angelina Lord needs to get to Santa Fe, New Mexico as quickly as possible. But it seems her new ride, Jace Blackhawke, the best man from the wedding she attended in Texas has other ideas. When his family learn he has a new woman in his life and believe the pair's relationship is more than it is, Jace will do anything to prove how important Angelina is to him. But as Angelina and Jace do their best to show their marriage is the real deal, it gets harder and harder for the pair to remember that their marriage has an end date. Will Jace be able to convince Angelina that happy ever after can be possible between them, or will Angelina's need to protect herself from hurt send her running from the best thing that's ever happened to her -- love with the right man?

The first book of this series was a delightful read with memorable characters such as Angelina and Jace, so I was really looking forward to reading this book and I've got to say that it was just as captivating and remarkable. The way this story started had me loving the main characters immediately, as Angelina is so focused on getting a new fashion boutique up and running in Santa Fe and nothing will stand in her way. However, plans don't always come to fruition, especially when it comes to men and the reason Jace is determined to do anything for family. Will Angelina go along with his plan? Will she be able to pull off how much in love she is with Jace, even if she's only supposed to be pretending? Will his family be accepting of the heroine?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and I loved every moment the hero and heroine conversed, as the hero can be quite persuasive in getting Angelina to see reason. Jace's family are important to him and he would do anything for them, even if it means deceiving them to show he's happy. Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked how driven she was when it came to her business. Nothing will stand in her way when it comes to her expansion plans, certainly not the hero. I also liked that she was willing to help Jace, even though it's not easy for her to let someone in. While the hero, I loved how determined he was to win Angelina over, even though he knows it won't be easy. Her walls are quite tall when it comes to letting someone in and it's palpable she has serious trust issues because of her past and being a foster kid. I also liked how good the hero was at his job as a US Marshal and that he would do anything he could to get bad guys off the streets.

Overall, Ms. Holt has penned another wonderful read for this series where the chemistry between this couple was intense and had me enjoying the way Jace won Angelina over, even though there's a major bump in their growing relationship when it comes to his job, some kids he rescued and whether he would be able to see things from the heroine's point-of-view when it came to their welfare. However, in saying that, I liked how Jace won the heroine back. The surprise he gave her was special and definitely something that would show Angelina how much he cares for her. I would recommend The Lawman's Apache Moon by Debra Holt, if you enjoy the marriage of convenience trope, the fake relationship trope or books by authors Ann B. Harrison, Sinclair Jayne, Justine Davis and Kate Pearce.

"No more detours!" That was the promise Angelina Lord made to herself when she accepted a ride from a wedding in Texas, with the best man to her destination in Santa Fe, New Mexico. What could possibly go wrong?

Angelina is focused on one thing–opening a fashion boutique in Santa Fe. What she really doesn’t need is one full-of-himself lawman with his aggravating air of superiority and soul-searing eyes…not to mention heart-stopping kisses…coming to her rescue. If she lets him get too close to the truth, he could bring down the wall she erected around her well-ordered life and her heart.

United States Marshal Jace Blackhawke holds family and traditions as the center of his life. He isn’t part of Angie’s world and she certainly isn’t part of his. Will their differences
prove to be too insurmountable in the face of the truth that will not stay silent?
