Description of Honor-Bound Lawman

Her Rancher Bodyguard

When Laura Booth’s dangerous ex-husband escapes from prison, she turns to the one man who can protect her: Owen Hamilton. Living with the widowed former lawman—who once helped put her ex in jail—and his adorable twin daughters on their Colorado ranch is a welcome respite. For the first time, Laura feels safe—but after her troubled past, she’ll never trust her heart again.

Owen would like to say only obligation draws him to Laura’s side. But in his gut he knows his feelings for the gentle beauty run deeper than duty—and it stops him cold. After guarding their wary hearts for years, can Owen and Laura give love a second chance?

My review of Honor-Bound Lawman

I have heard from others that I need to read some of Danica Favorite’s books. She is also a member of the  10 Minute Novelists group that I belong to. I love supporting other members of my writing group so I picked up a copy of Honor-Bound Lawman. I am sooooo glad I did.

I loved the book, I will check out her other eight books as soon as I get through the books I’ve committed to reviewing.

Owen and Laura’s romance is an evolving relationship. They start off in a victim and protector  relationship. Owen protects her while she waits to testify against her husband, James. With her husband safely behind bars Laura determines to create a new life for herself and Owen turns in his badge and leaves town.

Time passes and Owen and Laura’s paths cross again when James escapes from prison. Once again Owen is tasked with protecting Laura. He moves her out of town to his ranch where she meets his twin daughters and his sister.

With the two of them living in the same house they discover that they are indeed attracted to each other. What they decide to do about the attraction is the interesting part of their story.

Though I got mad at Laura a few times for doing stupid things, I can totally understand, given her history, why she reacts the way she does to Owen’s instructions. I enjoyed being able to see her thought process when she was trying to justify her defiance of Owen’s instructions.

I loved the role Henry played in the story! I won’t spoil it for you….you’ll just have to find out about Henry for  yourself.

I like a story that shows the struggles the couple has to overcome to reach their ‘happily ever after’. This one did not disappoint. I hope you choose to pick up a copy and enjoy Laura and Owen’s journey as much as I did.


About the author

Danica Favorite has spent her life in love with good books.  Never did she imagine that the people who took her to far away places would someday be the same folks she now calls friends.

A mountain girl at heart, she lives in the Denver area with her husband, children, a pesky dog, and a slew of chickens.

Put it all together, and you find an adventurous writer who likes to explore what it means to be human and follow people on the journey to happily ever after.
