I was born in Texas but cowboys have never been my cup of tea. Until Colleen Coble came into my life. I've read Lonestar Angel, Blue Moon Promise (Under Texas Stars Book 1) and now Safe in His Arms (Under Texas Stars Book 2) and her story lines, characters and mysteries just get better and better. Don't get me wrong, Colleen Coble doesn't just write about westerns and cowboys. She also writes about the beach (Tidewater Inn) and even charming Smitten, Vermont (Secretly Smitten)! And that's just the beginning. Once you start one of Ms. Coble's books, you'd better hold on because she takes you on amazing ride filled with suspense, romance, and excitement and God is at the center of it all.:)
Safe in His Arms begins with a letter from Colleen to her readers. She states that women often feel that they don't meet the expectations that life dictates to them. Perhaps we think we're not pretty enough, smart enough, a good enough cook or the best at our job. Remember, Wonder Woman only exists in a comic book and I don't recall ever seeing her do any cooking.:) Ms. Coble reminds us that no matter what, we are always safe in God's arms. We are more than enough for Him and His love is unconditional. What a glorious way to begin a story- and she's so right.
Safe in His Arms showcases Margaret O'Brien, a gorgeous redhead with a fierce stubborn streak but also a tender heart. As I've come to expect from Colleen Coble, the story was off to a running start within the first few pages. Daniel Cutler enters the picture with his swagger and disarming smile. He's handsome alright- almost too perfect... Margaret and Daniel are magical together. Sparks fly from the first second they see each other! I was reminded of the movie, Far and Away, in that these two characters need each other but don't realize how much until tragedy strikes. Their journey is exciting, frustrating and filled with passion. On a side note, I loved revisiting Nate and Lucy from Blue Moon Promise (Book 1). It was delightful seeing how their story continued. Outlaws, secrets and stolen kisses will keep you guessing until the very end of Safe in His Arms. Definitely my cup of tea.
