One thing about Kelly Boyce is she has a hit with Outlaw Bride. I love western romances and by far this is up there with Connie Mason and Linda Winstead. Her storylines are smooth, crisp and they pull you into the dialogue so easily. I loved that Kate is a woman trying to survive and break free from a disastrous marriage. Now Conner is just trying to make an honest living for him and his little girl. He is battling with his own demons each day. Kelly Boyce not only has a hit with this book but it is a new favorite for me. The passion and romance these two feel for each other is unique and you can tell this right away from the beginning. Ms. Boyce is a talented author. Keep an eye out for Kelly Boyce and I will also.
