Fast gun Luke Scott finds himself on the run from the law. He hides out in the small Colorado town where his twin brother, Jack, is the doctor. When Sarah Foster unexpectedly pays a midnight visit while Jack is out on a house call, Luke has no choice but to pretend to be his brother…a pretense he keeps up even as he woos the hot beauty.

Sarah has secrets of her own, though, including that this respectable miss is really a madam…the behind-the-scenes madam of the local whorehouse. When Luke and Sarah become lovers, Jack gets caught in the middle when Sarah mistakes him during the day for his brother.

Add one corrupt posse, one anxious father-to-be, and one twin brother caught in a lovers' triangle, and the path to true love for Luke and Sarah is anything but easy.

Can one outlaw and one madam drop their disguises long enough to fall in love?

This book started with a bang... literally! Someone was attacking a character named Luke and there was some talking and a gun shot. I admit I was a bit confused until the author clearly explained what had occurred during the prologue.

What really got me hooked on this book was Luke. Much like the heroine, Sarah, I didn’t know how my adoration of him happened, but it did. There is just something in the way he's depicted that makes him very desirable. Besides, the more I read about him and the way he started having feelings for Sarah the more I fell for him too.

The sex was hot, intense and very well described. I particularly loved their little role-playing moments. The tender moments were there too and were extremely sweet. Who knew an outlaw could have such a kind heart?

My only disappointment was not getting to know a little more about Luke’s brother, Jack. Perhaps in another story? Nonetheless, The Outlaw Takes a Madam, is both a tender and hot read that will leave you smiling.
