A really dumb book.
Can't wait for the next one to come out.

"Lucky" Logan Grey is a man who is haunted by the tragedies of his past. Though newspapers have dubbed him the "luckiest man in Texas" because of his mysterious ability to sense, and ward off, trouble before it occurs Logan knows his luck is anything but good.

Caroline Kilpatrick fell in love with Logan Grey the first time she saw him at the tender age of 8. He was the first boy to kiss her and nine years later he was the 18 year old louse who married her, bedded her and rode away the next morning without looking back. Unbeknownst to Caroline, he'd been hired by her father to marry his daughter in a fake ceremony in order to give her father access to Caroline's inheritance.

Fifteen years later... Logan finds himself in the middle of a bank robbery. He's frantically trying to form a plan to save the hostages when a gorgeous woman slips him a gun then proceeds to help him stop the robbery. Logan is stunned, mystified and totally captivated by the beautiful stranger but when he turns to thank her after the robbers have been subdued she's nowhere to be found.

Caroline Kilpatrick is furious! After traveling to Fort Worth with one goal in mind, to find Logan Grey, the last man in the world she wants to see, and convince him to help her rescue her beloved foster father from the outlaw-infested Black Shadow Canyon then helping him foil the bank robbery, the "lying, rotten, no-good, low-life, snake-breath, dirt-eating, overstuffed, ignorant, heartless, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed, dog" didn't even recognize her! Truth be told, for reasons only he knows, Logan has purposely blocked Caroline and the years that immediately followed that time of his life from his memory.

Once again Geralyn Dawson has given us a heartwarming tale related to her Bad Luck Bride series. I've been a long time fan of this series and The Loner is definitely going on my keeper shelf!

Lucky Logan Grey is definitely a loner and his version of lucky and what other people believe are often very different. Having been raised in an orphanage after his entire family was killed in a flash flood, Logan is more than wary of the thought of having a family of his own. Even though his good friends from the orphanage have gotten married and are enjoying their lives, Logan intends to live his own life and has no interest in settling down.

As a Range Detective Logan has tracked and caught and sometime killed, some the baddest of the bad. Sometimes called a killer with a badge, he was used to being on the move and leading life the way he wanted.

Caroline Kilpatrick and Logan are caught in a bank robbery together and as she helps him spoil the robber's plans, an instant attraction grows between them. But is it instant or have they known each other before? It seems that they were married 15 years ago and Logan doesn't even remember her!

Caroline needs help and she knows that Logan is the only one that can help her but will he do it? The father of her heart is missing and she needs help finding him but she doesn't think this will be motivation for Logan to help her so she tells him that his son is missing instead. Little did she know that her son Will had really been kidnapped.

Shocked by the news that they are indeed truly married and that he has a son that he knew nothing about. Logan agrees to help Caroline rescue their son from Black Shadow Canyon, a den of thieves and murders.

at first the story went slowly. at the end it went fast. the heroine was strong, but when it came to the hero she was pathetic. she knew he was going away and she tried to use sex to make him stay. everbody told the hero he loved the heroine. he changed his life for his other family, but he was unwilling to do so for the heroine and his son. he loved his other wife even she was in love with her dead husband. the hero had to work hard to feel the love for the heroine and his son. the heroine deserve better. she was faithful to him. the hero settled down with another woman even he did not know he was married already.

When I went to read the earlier Amazon reviews for this book, there were three that totally panned the story. I was so put off by those comments that I almost didn't bother to read it. Fortunately, I decided to take a chance and ended up thoroughly enjoying this often humorous story about love, forgiveness and family. It is well-written, it is original, there is nothing dumb or childish about it, and it is engaging.

If asked to describe it in one sentence, I would say this is a love story about two people who see themselves as rescuers but are actually in need of rescuing - and how they ultimately end up saving each other.

One thing this story is not is a "typical" romance novel. For starters, no one sweeps anyone else off their feet; there are none of the tedious "standard plot devices" that are so common in romance novels these days --- i.e. no "big misunderstanding" that drags through the entire story, no love at first sight, no marriage of convenience, no stolen identities, no emotionally or verbally constipated hero, etc. This is a Love Story between two flawed individuals and it seems sincere and real - there is a lot of anger, trust and forgiveness issues that must be overcome in order for the lovers to reach the HEA, it takes a long time for them to get there, and there are a lot of starts, stops and steps backward a long the way.

There is also plenty of steamy sex (which IMO was a tad overblown in a couple parts), but the author gives the reader a reality check on that as well by not allowing the sex to solve any problems between the couple, and by emphasizing the fact that sex is not going to fix what is missing in this relationship . . .which is yet another refreshing change of pace from the norm.
