Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
5 outstanding stars for Kidnapped by an Outlaw
Ivy McAdams is a new to me author and this debut novel set the pace for a fun series that I look forward to getting lost in.
As a fellow cowboy and adventure lover, the blurb to this book grabbed me right away. It’d been a hot minute since I’d read a historical romance novel and this one just sounded too fun to miss out on.
Sadie Turner is riding the train on her way back home with her father, who has just stepped out for air, when the unthinkable happens. Train robbers are headed her way down the aisle. Two of them to be exact, and one with the bluest eyes she’s ever seen. (What girl ain’t a sucker for some sexy baby blues, am I right?) Next thing Sadie knows, Papa has a gun to his head and she’s being taken outside to jump from a moving train.
What follows is an adventure into the wild west as Sadie is taken into an outlaw gang’s camp as a prisoner, her soon to be marriage to a well-off rancher’s son now on the line, and a ransom note is being sent to her last remaining family back in Emerald Falls. Not to mention the budding love interest from one of the outlaws who’s taken her captive. After all, Clay Pearson is handsome, broad-shouldered, and gives Sadie butterflies each time he looks at her.
These two were a match made in Heaven as Sadie soon realizes that life might just be more exciting on the other side of the train tracks than she ever imagined it could be.
I loved watching these two lovers find themselves while falling for one another- Sadie’s strength and perseverance and Clay’s kindness and protectiveness towards her. He was so swoony!
If you love a good historic outlaw love story with excitement then grab this one up. You won’t be disappointed. I’m excited to head back to Emerald Falls for book 2 in the series, Ginny’s story, Seduced by a Wrangler.

Shanna loves a good book that thrills, chills, and warms her heart...and has her jumping off moving trains onto horse's backs with a good-looking outlaw too ;-)
