From #1 New York Times bestseller Lora Leigh comes the final book in the Moving Violations trilogy, Her Renegade Cowboy!
He will risk his life…
The oh-so-proper school teacher, Lily Donovan has learned, the hard way, that men are not to be trusted. Period. Until Levi Roberts, the new cowboy working at her cousin's ranch, tempts her carefully-built resolve and awakens an all-consuming passion she thought lay dormant. But when she discovers his deadly secret, and her own secrets come to light, Lily unwittingly joins the lethal cat and mouse race between Levi and the man he’s been hunting for weeks.
To save her heart…
Former Ranger Levi Roberts has seen his fair share of deadly trouble during his years as a tough-as-nails operative. The ultimate expert in undercover investigations, he’s been tasked to find a man with a dangerous agenda in town. Routine work has been boring…until he runs into Lily, the prickly school teacher who tempts him like no other. Getting under her skin has been deliciously satisfying for his red-hot desire, but when Lily lands in the hands of the very man he’s been investigating, Levi will have to fight with every ounce of his heart and soul to save her—and to heal the heart he broke.

I always enjoy a good Lora Leigh book. This one was no exception. Liily was a young woman who had been brutalized and was having trouble adjusting. She did ok with family and the kids she taught, but wasn't ready to date again. Enter Levi who worked for her cousin and wanted to break down her barriers. When Lily heard her attacker had escaped, she thought about running, but hadn't yet. She got involved with Levi and didn't want to leave him, until she thought he betrayed her. The storyline was very good, it flowed well and there was just the right amount of drama, snarkiness (on Lily's part) and romance - with the hot sex thrown in. A good read
Wow. How do you put a whistle into words? From the super hot cowboy on the cover to the great story line, Lora Leigh has hit another homerun.
Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the eARC to read and review! I really enjoyed "Her Renegade Cowboy". It was intense, steamy, and had a great plot. Lily is a spitfire who doesn’t trust men, especially after the trauma she endured over a year ago. Ever since she’s been secretly struggling to reclaim who she used to be. Her plans are somewhat thrown for a loop by her attraction to Levi. I like Lily’s personality and how close she is with her family, especially with her sister. She’s a tough cookie but has a soft, loving side and quick wit. Levi is dedicated to his job, tasked with secretly protecting Lily as a new hire on her cousin’s ranch while at the same time hunting a fugitive. His fierce desire for Lily grows exponentially throughout the story, so much that he can’t seem to stay away. I liked Levi too but he really overstepped between his job and his pursuit of Lily. He’s definitely perfect for her and their romance is raging hot. But the truth was withheld for far too long because communication is key. I increasingly worried about how Lily would react just because of all she’s experienced and all she’s done to move on with her life. There was never a dull moment that I flew through this book. "Her Renegade Cowboy" is a real page-turner. I liked how much Lily and Levi grew throughout. Lora Leigh really knows how to write a captivating and steamy romance. An enjoyable and satisfying read. CW: abuse and trauma
Her Renegade Cowboy is an excellent suspenseful romance by Lora Leigh. She never fails to delight the reader. Lily has secrets she doesn't want to be known but didn't figure on Levi. He's used to dangerous jobs but wasn't ready for the attraction to Lily. I found the story exciting and steamy in spots. Good solid writing.
This is a really good book. The main characters are Lily and Levi. Lili had a situation that had someone trying to kill her. Levi is sent in to protect her. They fall in love and try to protect each other.
What a great read. It kept me reading from page to page and at times it even had me sitting on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next. The author did a great job of telling this story and I fell in love with the characters. Lily and Levi were great together. The chemistry between them was hot! The author did a great job of telling their story from beginning to end. I am looking forward to seeing what else this author has out their. Thanks NetGalley. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.
ARC received for review We've meet Lily in the previous book. I wanted her to hook up with Justice (Strong, Silent Cowboy) but Ms. Leigh finds someone new for her (I'm kinda of glad cause Justice was an arse in this book). Levi falls for Lily and has a lot of work cut out for him to get her to fall for him. Lots of drama, angst, adventure, sexy times, and action as they hunt the bad guy. Now is Justice and his brothers going to get their own books....as long as Justice stops being a major pain.
Holy moly... if you've never read a Lora Leigh book, grab a fan lol As a long time reader, this book sizzles like many of her others. While the story was great, there were plot points that were predictable. However when you've read an author for 10+ years that might happen. Lora never fails to weave the plot into a story to build up the relationships within. But if you're not a fan of steamy, scorching pages then this may not be your cup of tea. I loved the main character, Lily Donovan and her strength. Her cowboy, Levi was a bit predictable but it didnt distract from the story. I do wish we had a bit more to his history but again, personal preference. If our looking for a burn the sheets scorcher with a fantastic story, this is the book for you.
Her Renegade Cowboy is everything you expect from a Lora Leigh book. If you like low heat levels in your romance, take a hard pass. The steam rises from the scorching hot pages and you will be fanning yourself as you say "oh my goodness". With her time proven formula of equal parts love scenes and suspense, Leigh weaves a tale of a tough as nails teacher, Lily Donovan. Suffering a major trauma in her college years, Lily moved home and finished school online and definitely is not looking for love. Levi Roberts, former ranger and new farm hand, is working under pretenses but one sight of Lily and he is hot under the collar. Taming a gun shy school teacher leads to a rocky start and throw in some secrets to make for a hard earned HEA. Sensual and fast paced, Her Renegade Cowboy is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.
Deliciously hot with some added suspense. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Leigh has become a go to author for me. I get lost in her stories every time! This one is no different. Her characters are always so well matched. She does not shy away from the heat and passion that develops and builds the relationship. Her stories are in-depth and interesting! I just devour her books! So why wouldn’t she be a go-to? This story is a romantic suspense and that is one of my favorite genres to read. Her Renegade Cowboy was a bit light on the suspense portion and this would totally be a 5 star if it would have been ramped up just a bit. Overall, I loved the story! The secondary characters add so much to the development of the book as well. Her Renegade Cowboy is a fun, smexy, and all consuming story that is so worth the read! Check it out!
I really loved Lily and Levi. Levi is extremely alpha and very protective of Lily. Lily is strong willed and sassy. I love how strong Lily is despite all that has been done to her. There are lots of secrets I enjoyed the writing quite a lot. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced free copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
Levi is every reason to read this book. I have found that this author always provides the type of dominant, take charge heroes that I love, and she never makes them feel the same. You don't get the same man with a different name. You clearly can see the difference in the men but they are all very much a man. For the most part, I also enjoy the heroines in her books but I will say Lilly was not an easy character to like. She's been through a trauma that has made her very guarded and defensive. It's understandable but also hard to enjoy. For me, that didn't matter all that much since I'm all about the hero. Overall, I have really enjoyed this series. It's not your typical cowboy trope. They all have some military/law enforcement background and they know how to protect the women they fall for. The suspense is well written and not predictable.
Lily, a grade school teacher, has some big secrets. She helped put away a rapist and murderer by testifying against him. Nobody but her sister and best friend knows what really happened. Lily gets a call from the Marshall service telling her the man she helped convict has escaped. They want her to go in to witness protection but Lily refuses. Levi is a new ranch hand on Lily’s cousins ranch. He is a former Army Ranger sent undercover to watch over Lily. Levi is part of the fugitive recovery team on the Marshall service. Levi is only supposed to keep watch but he falls for Lily. But when the secrets are revealed will either of them able to forgive? Secrets. Action. Suspense. Sex. What more could you ask for? I knew when the secrets were uncovered, Lily was going to be upset. I know Levi’s was a little worse but she kept quiet about hers. Would recommend it. It was good. * Voluntarily read and reviewed this for NetGalley *
Oh my, I never get tired of reading this authors books. I have read everything she has wrote, some of them over and over. What happens when a coy bow undercover for the US Marshall Service., falls for his assignment in a big way? Can he keep her safe and capture the bad guys? What happens when she finds out he’s not just a cowboy? I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own
Another great read from Lora Leigh. I have never been disappointed from one of her books. Strong sexy male character and enduring stubborn female. Together makes a last great story.
Book three in the Moving Violations series is just as interesting and intense as the firs two books in the series. Lora Leigh, brings Lily Donovan and Levi Roberts together in the finale, and these two sure have a lot of secrets between them! Lily, the school teacher has a past that comes threatening her present, and Levi, former ranger is undercover helping to bring a dangerous criminal to justice. A criminal closely linked to Lily, and a danger that threatens her life. When sparks ignite into passion between Lily and Levi, and secrets break open in their relationship that may break them apart, it's up to Levi to protect the woman who holds his heart, and Lily has to put her faith and belief in Levi to bring her home. A great finale to Lora Leigh's series.
Wow this book was just so good and so easy to get lost in. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I just didn't want the story to end. I just couldn't get enough of these wonderful characters and I just loved getting to see their journey. I will most definitely be reading more stories from this wonderful author.
This romantic western intrigue is beautifully written. She introduces us to Lilly Donovan, a elementary school teacher , who was formally very out going and outspoken, and always up for a dare. Nowadays, she’s unlikely to put herself out there, after surviving an attack and testifying against her attacker. Levi Roberts, her undercover Marshall’s Service bodyguard knows all her secrets, but can’t tell her he does and is here to protect her. He feels guilty because she doesn’t know who he is, but makes sure he gets close to do his job, until it becomes more than his job. Ms. Leigh paints a small town, but one populated by heroes, and one that definitely takes care of it’s own, Her characters are well defined, some with flaws, but mostly the type we’d all love as neighbors. Lily’s family unit is strong and help her get through the difficulties she faces, A great Romance/Intrigue with heat. I received a NetGalley ARC to peruse and offer my opinion freely.
WOW!!! This series just keeps getting better and better. This book took on an edge of the seat ride right from page 1. I truly love the way this book drew out the suspense of if or when Lily’s attacker would strike again.. I also loved the way Levi & Lily clicked right from the start, their was chemistry even when she didn’t want it. They were extremely hot together. The strength that Lily had to deal with her attack & attempted murder was amazing. I enjoyed how the authors kept giving us a little flashbacks of the torture without giving it all away at once. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series. Definitely recommend. Thank you to the publisher & Net Galley for letting me read this book for an honest review.
