    One thought on “Leah and the Bounty Hunter”

    1. This book has an interesting plot: a bounty hunter Jace Gage was hired to "clean up" the town Defiance. Its sheriff being the main villain. The pairing is interesting too. Jace, the ultimate Indiana Jones type of hero, sauntering into town where Leah Morgan, the heroine resided. Leah hated violence and would do anything she could to stay away from violence. So the match is inherently problematic, forcing the lead characters somehow coming to terms with themselves and each other. I thought the bo [...]

    2. Jace Gage comes to Defiance to clean up the town, which is his specialty and he is very good at it. Leah knows that Defiance doesn't need another gunfighter bleeding on its crooked streets. The sheriff has just about ran all the good people of Defiance off. Leah can't leave her little town, as many people depend on her for her baking and hunting skills. Sparks fly right away between Gage and Leah. It takes along time for Gage to gain Leah's trust and for her to realize that Gage can protect her. [...]

    3. 2.75 stars. Not as good as the first book but better than the second one. Unfortunately, I won't continue with the series. It is not worth the money.If I didn't know better I would guess this romance was written by a man. The blunt language made me think I was reading chicklit. It contained a minor plot, a tomboy out of her element, and sex, sex, and did I say sex? Don't get me wrong but I just expected more. When I read a historical romance I don't want one of the main characters already withou [...]

    4. This is the second book of this series I have read, and it just keeps getting better. You have a young innocent young lady trying to live and stay alive in a town that is dying and full of thieves and a corrupt sheriff. When in rides a bounty hunter sent to clean the town of the sheriff and to find the gold the sheriff has hidden over the years. Who will he trust, who will she trust? This book had so many twists and turns, that I never knew what was coming next. The past does influence the prese [...]

    5. This book was a let-down in the series. The first two stories were very good and left me eager to read the next book. If this had been the first book in the series or my first book by the author, I wouldn't read more.I strongly agree with a review by Linda (contains spoilers). Most of the book was written as a pure western interspersed with romantic interest or just pure attraction and hints of what is to come. The last 25-33% of the book is an all out bodice ripper and very crude or blunt.I'd s [...]

    8. Leah and the Bounty HunterBy Elaine LevineCopyright August 2011Publisher Zebra Historical RomanceTo Leah Morgan's mind, the last thing her hometown of Defiance needs is another gunman stalking its dusty streets-especially one as sweet-talking and fine-looking as Jace Gage. Despite her warnings, the infuriating man seems determined to meddle in her life and risk his own, all for a town that can't be saved and a heart she locked away long ago. Professional bounty hunter Jace Gage has cleaned up pl [...]

    9. This novel, a series titled Men of Defiance, is one that will suck you in and not let go of you until the end! Although I’ve not read the other two novels, I’m totally in love with Levine! I fell in love with Leah and Jace right from the start! Leah Morgan has led a difficult life in Defiance! She has witnessed on numerous occasions episodes of terrible acts upon her mother, leaving her scared and as skittish as a jackrabbit! The sheriff of Defiance and his group of followers are downright e [...]

    10. Liked Leah and liked Jace. Liked the story. There was one spot that always make me cringe though. Near the end, Leah and Jace run into Felicity an old lover of Jace's. She has what is basically a throw away line about being an expert on spending Jace's money. It's part of a conversation where she regales Leah with the knowledge that Jace and Felicity's love affair was legendary. I knew from the book that Jace and Felicity had been in a casual relationship for three years so it shouldn't come as [...]

    11. It’s 1868 and Jace Gage, a bounty hunter, has come back to the town of Defiance. He’s back to clean up the town, a place he doesn’t like much, but he’s determined to do his job and do it right. The first time he spots Leah, she’s defending a young boy. Leah thinks Jace is a gunfighter and tries to stay out of his way. But Jace’s real job as a bounty hunter is to clean up corrupt towns like Defiance. Jace really has his work cut out for him this time and Leah is a distraction he doesn [...]

    12. Classic western romance; gunfights, hidden gold, hired gunslinger, independent western woman. Leah lives alone, well as alone as one can be with a large wolf as a constant companion. Self sufficient until Jace shows up in Defiance, he seems to be a catalyst and causes events that end her independence and threaten her life. Jace looks at Leah and despite his grim outlook on life he sees a chance to be happy. He is there for her when she needs help most.A nice quick read, if you are in the mood fo [...]

    13. I had been super excited to read this but this is a bit slow. It begins about halfway through Audrey's story so not only are we left hanging about Jace's condition until about 67% into the story.It wasn't bad but it could have been so much better. I didn't need the beginning of their relationship but how it was at the end of the previous book.Also I felt like Leah and Gage weren't as fleshed out as they could've been.Not bad but unfortunately not my favorite (as I hoped it would).

    14. Being a fan of historical books especially about Cowboys! This was an ok book, for me. The story line was good but at times it was hard to get intometimes the story just went right into the next issue and left you feeling rushed on the story. I felt a connection to the characters, and the story with them left you rooting for them. I still recommend this book and would read another from Elaine Levine.

    15. You want a sexy gunslinger, well now, you got em. Leah and the Bounty Hunder was brilliant. The story delivered topics pertaining to womens issues of abuse and how men had power and ruled with a fist or a gun to evolve into a very endearing, heartwrenching tale of redemption and love. My star rating is a 5 stars all the way.

    16. Looking back in time when there was such strong hero's to warm your heart with all the passion possible.Young, beautiful Leah needed the truth in her life and healing that would enable her to open her heart fully to accept the love and passion offered by the famous " Avenger" Riding into her life taking over her heart, and life completely.

    17. I really would have liked to give this a 3.5 star rating because overall I did like the story but it just didn't flow smothly for me. At an emotional level it seemed the H/H were often at odds & acting out of character. This is the first book by this author that I have read so I will try another before I decide if her books are for me. "I think I'm getting Nit-Picky in my old age"

    18. 3.5/5. Not bad but many of the actions of the characters did not quite make sense ( the justifications behind these were rather flimsy). Heroine fluctuated between tough, bad-ass,self-sufficient gal to over-emotional girlie in need of rescuing. These inconsistencies and poorly thought out motives did detract from the story.

    19. Typical western romance with hero chasing and shooting bad guys, five at a time, no problem. I liked how the heroine could survive on her own in the wild but both hero and heroine had overlong stubborn anti-relationship period. Gunslinger Jace comes to Leah's town to get rid of corrupt sheriff and his gang.

    20. The hits kept rolling with this one. There were so many twists, I was constantly surprised, and pleasantly so. Loved Jace and Leah, and boy did both of them need each other.
