5.0 out of 5 stars As always, another great. May 2 2005
By J COFFMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Bk. 7-Texas Brand series. As always a welcome addition to this series.

Elliot is delivering an ancient artifact to the university when he is involved in an accident. Somehow he is sent back in time 120 years. He saves Esmerelda from a hanging by his ancestors & travels forward 120 years with Esmerelda.

I really enjoyed this book. There is one very funny part after they arrive back that has me in stitches.

Next (bk. 8) is Angel meets the badman about Sara & Jake.
3.0 out of 5 stars On the fence with this one. May 8 2014

I didn't mind the time travel bit so much, as I detested Esmerelda and what she stood for. Sure she was handed a dirty deal back in the 1880's era, but why try to take it out on innocent people of the future who had absolutely nothing to do with it. She was just too wishy washy to me. She'd say one thing one minute, then she'd do or say something completely opposite a few days later.

The whole thing just confused me. Not the best addition to this series, because I found all of them to be so believable, whereas this one was just the opposite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Esmeralda should have stayed in the Old West Jan. 18 2008

I don't mind a time travel book. Usually I enjoy them. And in this one the time travel wasn't the problem. Esmeralda was. She was conniving, two faced, dense, dishonorable and dumb.

Because the Brands in 1881 were bad people she assumed the Brands in 1999 are bad also in spite of mountains of evidence to the contrary. Esmeralda's plan is to seduce Elliott, get pregnant so he will marry her, divorce him and get part of the ranch as community property.

When Elliot DOES wants to marry her and says so in front of his entire family she yells at him and turns him down.

When Elliot is injured she admits exactly what she had planned to do, that she lied and schemed but she couldn't go through with it because he is the sweetest man she's ever known. 15 pages later she tells him that she changed her mind because she's too decent of a woman and that he deserved far worse than what she tried to do to him.

Esmeralda thinks, "First he told her didn't expect sex as a payment, and then he made love to her anyway." Apparently she hasn't caught on that having sex and making love are two different things

Also have these Brands never heard of "safe sex" or "birth control"?

I've never given a book in the Brand series such a low rating and considering how many books were in this series I suppose one had to be bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Time Travel Romance Jan. 10 2001
By "ladiva11" - Published on Amazon.com
Nothing makes me madder than people who pick up a time travel romance, then complain that it's a time travel romance! I'm glad Ms. Shayne was able to bring something different to the Brand series for a change. No, The Outlaw Bride isn't as good as some of her paranormals but it is a welcome change from the standard plots most Brands find themselves in. I was frustrated by Esmerelda much of the time and so many of her actions are irrational. The Outlaw Bride also involves something that bothers me about several of these Brand books. They involve someone who falls in love with a Brand and is then treated with suspicion, disrespect and outright meanness. I keep wondering why anyone would want to marry into this family if it means you have to be pilloried to get in! I did like Elliott tho, the opening of this book was chilling and I couldn't stop turning the pages. It wasn't great. I did think it was a pretty good read.
