Cole Younger Outlaw: Homicide detective on the Houston Police Department. Badly injured. His father, John Wesley Hardin Outlaw and his mother, Miss Nonnie take him home to recuperate in Naconiche. The small town he wanted to get out of. "Pull off your pants and lie down" was Dr. Kelly Martin's opening statement. [chuckle] Little did she know that Cole had nothing else on under his sweats. Dialogue was great even when she pealed the back off of a nicotine patch and slapped on his right hip. No smoking because of his lung injury. Here is another gal who has been around. But she found breath-stopping sex appeal ozzing from this wounded male. Kelly suddenly realized that Cole could not make it down the stairs from over the Double Dip ice cream parlor where his parents now lived. She very unobtrusively solved his problems of being able to get around and have a little freedom to be himself. She very gently bullies him into attending J.J.'s and Mary Beth's wedding, here we meet up with Sam Bass Outlaw, his younger brother, and his sister Belle Starr Outlaw. [they should have had stories of their own] They sure had troubles trying to get to bed with each other. [bummer] The little murder mystery seemed a little weak for Cole to handle and the teaching experience was an energizing experience. One he didn't expect. Well written stories with loose moraled females, when you think of them being the mothers of the next generation. Very chancy. A bit disappointing. Enjoyable supporting characters - great small town - 2 surprising characters - great family connections in the Outlaws. will recommend for a good read.


As one of the members of the great Outlaw family, Cole Younger has thoughts of "I don't want to do this, it is too hard to try the demands on my body after being shot". However Dr. Kelly Martin is there to move him along. She just doesn't give up. The process is slow but worth the while. Kelly has her share of problems too. Living in a little town people watch everything you do. However, it seems like the people become very helpful and Cole and Kelly solve their problems. In the end they are getting married and add to a wonderful family. Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Wow! What a hero!

In ragged sweats and with several days' growth of beard Cole Younger Outlaw is gorgeous. He's enough to make Dr. Kelly Martin lose her professional demeanor. But she doesn't. She's as tough as he is and just as accustomed to getting her way.Cole is also furious. A cop in Houston, Cole was shot. He lost part of his lung but the worst injuries are to his hip and leg. As he recuperates on the second floor of his parents home in a small town, he knows he'll never work homicide again and doesn't want to be a desk jockey.As the attraction between the two grows, so do the obvious conflicts Years earlier, he fled Naconiche for Houston but she loves the small town. He was tricked into a disastrous marriage when his girlfriend said she was pregnant. Now Kelly is pregnant and worried about telling him. The Cop is a fast, sexy read. It is book three of Ms. Hudson's Texas Outlaws series but stands along very well--although it makes the reader want to catch up on those other brothers named for famous outlaws.The talented and multi-published Jan Hudson has created a great looking and complex hero who is torn between duty, his physical problems, and his desire not to fall in love with the beautiful, loving doctor. Kelly is just as torn. She has her home in Naconiche and her patients who care about her. Can she turn her back on all of this to be with the father of her baby? How can she tell him when he's been trapped before? But how can she not tell Cole? How will he feel when she does?Ms. Hudson brings all these conflicts together into a satisfying and happy end, a celebrations of love and family.

engaging contemporary romance

Cole Younger Outlaw had been a Houston homicide detective for years, but knows his career on the streets is over. Back in his hometown of Naconiche, Cole recovers from bullets to his leg and hip and a piece of lung destroyed. Dr. Kelly "Red" Martin tends to Cole's physical injuries, but his pride makes it difficult to help him, as he already is tired of assistance and pampering from his concerned family.Red admits to herself that her patient has gotten to her especially seeing him nude and wanting to join him,, but she knows he is Houston while she had her year performing urban medicine in the big city and prefers small town living. As Red heals, his desire for his doctor places her in an ethical dilemma as she wants him more than anyone ever before. Can the oldest Outlaw persuade his physician that small town living is perfect for him with her at his side?The final law abiding Outlaw novel (see THE SHERIFF and THE JUDGE) is a delightful ending to a fine series. The lead couple is a fine pairing of two individuals with different perspectives on life while the support cast of his family (including previous stars) and the other Naconiche townsfolk bring depth to an engaging contemporary romance between the ex-cop and his physician.Harriet Klausner
