Book Description

Dec 1 1992

Hoping to cool off a twenty-five-year-old feud between two neighboring families, Cassie Stuart only succeeds in pouring kerosene on the flames. Both sides have warned her to get out of Texas pronto. . .or they will burn her father's ranch to the ground. What Cassie needs is a peacemaker but she ends up with a widow-maker instead.

He is called Angel, a ruggedly handsome hired gun with eyes as black as sin. Unwanted and unwelcomed by his ungrateful employer, he would just as soon leave Cassie to fend for herself. But a stubborn sense of duty and a desire to taste the sweetness of her kiss, steels Angel's resolve to make Cassie want him, come hell or high water. . .and for more than his gun alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A top one Nov. 5 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Except for Gentle Rogue, this is JL's best book.
What I loved about it was that the characters were less than perfect in terms of beauty. As a rule, most romance heroes and heroines tend to be outstanding in terms of looks: they are most often pictured as being perfect: the men tall and handsome, the women beautiful to die for. This is one of those books in which the characters are not like that and this makes it easier for the reader (for me at least) to identify with them.
The heroine is very lovable with her tendency to make things right which always gets her into trouble. The hero is not the usual big guy who makes his way through life using his sword/gun or whatever is appropriate to his time and place; instead, he has a hidden humour which I loved (although you have to read the previous book about Colt in order to see it fully displayed :). They do not fight all the time as do all the characters in JL's "early Middle Ages" book, but they do not have a soapy relationship either. It is just the right kind of "we get along" and "we don't get along". You can understand why they fell in love with each other.
One of my favourites. JL is seen at her best in the Malory novels (don't we all agree about that :) ) and in the Wild West novels. My advice is to skip the Middle Ages and vikings books altogether, unless you prefer more violence, seemingly mindless struggle, and punishments in your romance book. I vote for the humor and adventure part myself.
Happy reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Gunslinger Story June 28 2004
By Dakota
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Angel" is the third in a series of romances set mostly in the wilds of Wyoming. In this Lindsey novel, the hero is an intimidating gunslinger named Angel, more often called the Angel of Death, because he never loses a fight. He is called down to Texas to repay a favor of a man who saved his life. The favor: to keep a "meddler" named Cassie from getting kicked out of Texas by the two families enraged at her botched attempt at matchmaking.
Both Angel and Cassie are interesting characters, Angel more so for his tragic upbringing and his highly dangerous, but mostly lonesome career as a hired gun. Cassie is perky with her fine lady mannerisms and rancher upbringing. With her flair for getting into other people's business, she can't seem to stay out of trouble. Plus, she has an eccentric homelife, which includes a pet panther from Africa named Marabelle who loves to clean her teeth on bare toes.
The story is fun and the action nonstop, from the first chapter's opening showdown at noon to the final "showdown" between Cassie and Angel, with stampedes, brawls, and all sorts of crazy things thrown in between. Angel's search for his identity is also an important element in this novel, and it is treated with care. The only "fluff" extraneous scene happens at the very end and I won't go into detail, but it doesn't serve much in my opinion other than to get Cassie's unconventional mom to like Angel.
Altogether, I enjoyed "Angel." It is fast-paced and witty, and it brings back all the characters from "Brave the Wild Wind" and "Savage Thunder." Of the three books, however, I thought "Angel" was the least passionate. "Savage Thunder" is, by far, my favorite Lindsey novel EVER and it was where Angel made his first brief, memorable appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Better than it's prequel. Jan. 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the sequel to Lindsey's "Savage Thunder." The hero from "Angel" appears in "Savage Thunder", but very briefly. However, the characters of "Savage Thunder" appear quite a bit in "Angel." So it is worth while to read them in order. However, "Angel" is far better than "Savage."
Well known as "The Angel of Death" in the West, Angel is a fast gun for hire. To repay a debt to a friend, he travels to Texas to provide protection for a young woman caught in a feud among families. When he first arrives, he is not captivated by the woman. (She's not your classic beauty.) However, the more he sees of her, the prettier she appears to him.
Cassie has a bad habit of meddling in other people's affairs. In effort to end a 20 year feud between two neighboring families, she plays match maker by setting up a daughter from one family, with a son from the other. The two lovers then run off to be married, but come back to rejoin the feud. Now both families are mad at Cassie. They threaten to burn her ranch to the ground if she doesn't vacate Texas. Cassie seeks to hire a peacemaker. However, the peacemaker sends Angel in his place to handle the young woman's problem.
After facing a few weeks of Angel's intimidation, the father of one feuding family forces Angel and Cassie to marry at gun point. Cassie can't figure out why Angel didn't fight to stop it from happening. Nor does she understand why he took his marriage rights with her. She doesn't believe herself attractive, so she wonders why Angel would not insist that they have an immediate annulment.
When Cassie's parents show up, Angel's obligation is fulfilled.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely was not 'an Angel of a book'.
Not one of the best, but worth reading! Not being a devoted Lindsey fan, I found this book worth reading, especially since I paid a 'whopping $ .25 cents for it. Read more
