My Law Man by DeeDee Lane (Review)
Today I’m happy to introduce you to My Law Man, a time travel romance by DeeDee Lane. Since my story Tempted by a Kiss was published by The Wild Rose Press in December, I’ve met a lot of wonderful people through the TWRP author discussion forums. DeeDee is one of those writers, and I had the pleasure of reading her novella My Law Man.
This story is part of the Slip in Time series, and after reading My Law Man, I must admit I can’t wait to read the other stories. I immediately fell in love with the heroine and hero, Phebe and Rafe. Phebe has a troubled past, but I totally understood her anger at her ex and he deserved to have his car wrecked—though her thwarted plans to blow it up may have been a tad extreme! Still, I felt for her when I learned of her ex’s betrayal and terrible treatment of her. As soon as Rafe was introduced, I knew I’d love this book, because he’s a strong-yet-caring hero, just the kind I love.
Sparks fly as soon as Phebe and Rafe meet, after she’s unceremoniously thrown back in time. I loved her utter confusion when she woke up in 1866 and how Rafe, though baffled by her, tries to help her and believes her when she tells him she has time-traveled. Their romance builds quickly, but in a believable way. Phebe’s troubled past comes in handy when outlaws seize control of the town, and the love scene are hot and fun, as these two seeming strangers realize they share a deep passion for each other. I loved the ending, when they find each other again in a surprising way.
Anyone who loves historical romance, time travel stories, or fish-out-of-water tales would do well to pick up a copy of DeeDee Lane’s My Law Man. A great summer beach read!
About My Law Man
Phebe Brooks is single, cynical—okay bitter—and fighting to stay out of jail by doing community service at the Cowboy and Western Museum. While cleaning a jail cell in the “Lawmen of the West” exhibit, Phebe slips back in time and into the arms of a man who resembles her first love, Rafe Morrow.
Newly hired as Eagle Rock’s sheriff, Rafe, a former sharpshooter in the Union Army, came west to start anew. This seems possible until his town is overtaken by a sassy female constantly complaining about wearing a dress and then a band of outlaws set on robbing the gold from an incoming stagecoach.
Can Phebe and Rafe cooperate long enough to save the town? For Phebe, it’s worth the risk. She’s determined to let go of past mistakes, get herself on the right side of the law, and have a future filled with love and passion.
