Christian Historical Fiction is a favorite genre of mine. Mix in some Western genre and the book is a must read for me. Lassoed by the Lawman by Renae Brumbaugh Green is the 3rd and final book in The Texas Ranger series. I have not read the first 2 in the series, but I was able to jump in an follow the storyline very well. 

Juliana Duke loves dresses and has dreamed of owning a Dress Shop. Her dream will probably always stay a dream, as she is an only child. Her family owns a ranch and she is supposed to marry a Rancher and hopefully have a son who would eventually take over the Family Ranch. Lt. Cody Steves, who is a Texas Ranger, has a chance meeting with Juliana Duke. Cody Steves has dreams of marriage and a family, as he continues to work as a Texas Ranger. He worries though about leaving a widow and children behind, as being a Ranger is a dangerous job. Cody and Juliana both are attracted to one another. Cody steps in to rescue Juliana when danger presents itself on the Ranch. Will Cody realize that love endures all and continue with a relationship with Juliana? Will Juliana find her "Rancher" that will create a family and future Ranchers for the Family Ranch? Will Cody choose being a Ranger over being a Rancher? 

I truly enjoyed this story. The setting of Texas, the Romance, the Inspirational Bible Scriptures, the Mystery all make it a wonderful read. The Characters Juliana and Cody both have great personalities and their dreams and wants in life are similar, but different. The author has a great writing style that brings the reader into the story from the very beginning! Though this is the 3rd book in the series, it reads great as a Standalone novel! Fantastic Book!

More from Renae

Lassoed by the Lawman is the third and final book in the Texas Rangers Series, and I honestly think it’s my favorite book of the series. The main characters, Juliana and Cody, are loosely based on me and my husband, Rick. We’re both creatives, we both love music, and we both try to balance our love for creativity with our need to actually make a living! Our shared love of music initially drew us to each other.

Like Cody, Rick is rugged and masculine, and he melted my heart the first time I heard him sing. As a matter of fact, during our courtship, we often wrote songs together. One of the songs Cody sings to Juliana in the book is actually a song Rick wrote for me. (Sigh.)

The attraction Cody and Juliana feel for each other is both white-hot and pure… the kind of passion God wants husbands and wives to experience. It’s the kind of passion Christ has for us, his bride. As I worked on these pages, I giggled at times, blushed at times, and grinned with mischief always.

Through hardship and heartache, Juliana and Cody find joy. And through hardship and heartache, God wants us to find joy, too…the joy of an abundant life in Christ. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. As a bonus, here’s a link to a song Rick and I wrote and recorded for each other. It’s not the song from the book, but it’s pretty special to us.

God bless, and happy reading!
