About Out Rider

Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages

Publisher: HQN Books (April 26, 2016)

With her return to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, New York Times bestselling author Lindsay McKenna shows how love can find a way out of the darkness… 

A fresh start—that’s all Devorah McGuire wants. As a former Marine and current Ranger with the US Forest Service, she’s grown accustomed to keeping others safe. But when the unthinkable happens, she can only hope that a transfer to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will allow her to put the past behind her for good.

Dev’s mentor at Grand Tetons National Park is fellow canine handler and horseman Sloan Rankin. He shows Dev the spectacular trails, never knowing the terror that stalks her every move. Despite her lingering fear, Dev feels an attraction for Sloan as wild as their surroundings.

With Sloan, Dev can envision a new life—a real home. Unless a vengeful man fresh out of prison succeeds in finishing what he started…

My review:

Out Rider is the eleventh book in author Lindsay McKenna’s Jackson Hole series and admittedly the first of her work that I’ve read.  This was a nice departure from the romances I normally read I enjoyed it a lot.

Dev and Sloan’s romance builds at a slow and sweet pace with  lots of patience and respect.  I really enjoyed both character’s personalities and watching their attraction grow.  It was decidedly slower than a lot of the romances I read and it was a really nice change of pace.  It felt like a romance from a simpler time and I loved that aspect.  Dev is coming off of a traumatic event and Sloan’s respect of her personal space and feelings was really amazing.  He’s a true gentleman with a wonderful outlook on life, even after his own past failed relationship.  They are really wondeful together with a lot of similar traits and philosophies.

I also really enjoyed the suspense layer to this story with the return of the man responsible for Dev’s current situation and her reluctance to trust men.

When I started this book, I didn’t realize there were so many books in the series and I was happy to find out there were.  I am definitely going to look into the pervious installments!

  1. I love discovering a series that has been going for a while – it’s always fun to have lots of books to read one right after the other rather than having to wait a year or more for the next release.

    Thanks for being a part of the tour!
