MERCY OF THE LAWLESS brings together some favorite tropes for me--westerns, historical romance, kidnappings, undercover work…and I could go on. Suffice to say, J.A. Dennam's story checked a bunch of boxes for me. So, let's start with the easy stuff.
Characters: Jenny Bennett is all sorts of sweet and sassy with a certain level of "pluckiness" to her that made her an enjoyable character for the female lead. Tucker Cahill (aka Will) is the right kind of undercover agent masquerading as an outlaw and I loved how his protective side came out with Jenny. The "bad guys"--Percy, Silas, Oscar, Luther (I may have missed some)--are your stereotypical mix of outlaws that blend well together, sometimes much like oil and water. And of course, there's the family feud--Hatfields and McCoys or Romeo and Juliet--two families who can't see beyond their own madness. United in love, Tucker and Jenny will do what it takes to be together again and that includes some marvelous "outlaw-type behavior" including a well-plotted out pseudo-train heist and some entertaining prisoner breaks.
If you enjoy a western romance with some nail-biting action that will leave you on the edge of your seat and itching for more than one happily ever after, then I do recommend MERCY OF THE LAWLESS. It's grand entertainment.
