COLT(THE TEXANS) by Georgina Gentry is a wonderful historical romance set in 1852 Texas plains. It is the third"The Texans" series,but can be read as a stand alone. See, "Rio",and "Diablo". It is full of action,adventure,Indians,passion,betrayal,the horror of capture by Comanches,romance, and love. Hannah Brownley,has been held captive by Comanches for two years,but was Texas born and raised and would do anything to get back to her beloved son,left behind after being rescued.Colt Prescott,Hannah's rescuer,a Cavalry Lieutenant,he cannot let Hannah return to her captors so he does the only thing he can,rescue her son and bring him,her and himself to safety. A fast paced,story with a powerful love story,that shows the struggles women of the old west encountered,their desire to survive,the love for a child,even one conceived of rape and torture and the power of true love and sacrifice. A must read for anyone who enjoys western historical romance, Texas history,hunky Texan men,life in the west,pre-civil war west, and powerful love story. Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at Zebra Books, a division of Kensington Books,the author's website,and My Book Addiction and More.

Having loved reading Georgina Gentry in my younger years, I eagerly jumped at the chance to read her latest book, Colt. The plot wasn't necessarily new and fresh but still enjoyable none the less.

I found myself drawn into the story right from the start and felt a strong connection with both Colt and Hannah. Hannah was a very strong, fiercely independent woman who was dealt a rough, tough and harsh life from a very young age. Even though Colt was engaged to someone else, he found himself drawn to Hannah's strength and determination. The romance between Hannah and Colt bloomed over time at a slow and sweet pace throughout the entire book.

While the over the top references to ""being a Texan"" became a bit cheesy by the end of the story, overall I found it to be an enjoyable read.

Even though this is book 3 of The Texans series, it definitely can be read as a standalone. In fact I look forward to reading books 1 and 2 to see what connection they make with this story. Also, I cannot wait to get my hands on upcoming book 4, Travis which will be featuring Hannah's half-Comanche son from this story.

Are you in the mood for a good `ol pre Civil War romance? This is the novel for you! Gentry has done her research for the 1850's and the Indians versus the army.

Hannah, a stubborn, hardheaded young woman has been taken hostage by a group of Comanche Indians, not known to be friendly towards the white people. She's been gone four years, leaving her abusive husband to think she'd been killed. She's taken to their ways, knowing if she doesn't abide they'd torture her and kill her. . . and then what would happen to her toddler son?

Colt is new to this troop of Calvary men straight from DC. However, having lived among the Comanche Indians he is familiar with their ways. It's now time to work with the government and make sure no additional people are hurt by these unruly and rough Indians. . .until Hannah comes along.

This fast read will pull you into the love story and want you begging for more!

I really enjoy reading western/indian romance stories. Hannah and Colt were a great match and while the story line was interesting, there was one aspect that I found extremely annoying. The same phrases were so overused in the book. Hannah "never cried because it did no good" and Colt and his constant "I'm a Texan" phrase. That aside, I did like the story and the additional characters added depth.

Loved this hero and heroine. Hannah is a very strong heroine in this story. She overcame all adversity and Colt overcame his misgivings to be able to fall in love with Hannah. couldn't put the book down until finished.

#1 HALL OF FAMEon February 7, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Hannah Brownley was fifteen, she ran away from her abusive stepfather. She met and married Luther who she thought would treat her kindly, but he proved abusive in a different way and her husband tried but failed to break her spirit. Three years later, Luther held the rifle watching for Comanche while Hannah and the children picked plums. When the Comanche arrive, her cowardly husband flees knocking over children. The raiding party leader punches Hannah in the face, something she expects from all males, before she and her son are taken captive. Once again Hannah believes these brutes may hurt her physically but will not break her spiritually.

In 1856, Second Lieutenant Colt Prescott and the Second Cavalry out of Camp Cooper rescue Hannah, but fail to free her son. Colt learns that her Indian name is Muakatu (Moonlight) and that she is the woman of vicious Puhu Retsi (Spider). The major's easterner daughter Miss Olivia Murphy takes charge of Hannah. While Doc and Colt understand Hannah, Olivia thinks the savage needs her Christian help while also deciding Colt will make a perfect mate for her. When Hannah goes for her child Travis, Colt decides to help her.

The third Texans romance (see Rio and Diablo) is a superb pre Civil War tale starring a strong title character and a brave woman who refuses to let men break her as she knows as a Texas girl the only male who could is Travis. The support cast is somewhat stereotypical, but that enhances the time and place as well as the relationship between the lead Texas couple. Georgina Gentry provides an engaging historical.
