Series: Hangers Horsemen
ISBN: 9780764232091

I'm going to be sad to see this series end, but it ends with my personal favorite out of all three. I love the message within the pages! Karen sent me her book for review.


He's Faced Countless Perils on the Battlefield, but Nothing so Dangerous as Falling in Love.

Luke Davenport has been fighting all his life--for respect, for country, and for those unable to fight for themselves. But now that his Horsemen brothers are domesticated, he's left alone to battle the wildness within. When an opportunity arises to take a job on his own, tracking down a group of rustlers, he jumps at the chance.

Damaris Baxter has mastered the art of invisibility. Plain and quiet, she hides in books and needlework, content to be overlooked. Until her brother dies suddenly, leaving her custody of her nephew. She moves to Texas to care for Nathaniel, determined to create the family for herself that she never thought she'd have and to give him the family he desperately needs.  

When Nate finds himself knee-deep in trouble, Luke's attempt to protect him leaves Damaris feeling indebted to the Horseman. But suspicions grow regarding the mysterious death of Damaris's brother. And the more questions they ask, the more danger appears, threatening the family Luke may be unable to live without.

My Review:

In Honor's Defense was such a good story. I think maybe my favorite of the series.

We really get to know Luke so much better. He's been through so much in his life and we get to learn more of the depth of pain he's dealt with. He's the Horseman who doesn't want to stay anywhere long. 

That is until Demaris and Nate. I wish we had a picture of this plain woman who hasn't made an impression on anyone her entire life. But then to see her through Luke's eyes would be fun... is fun in the story. Very endearing how they are both truly seen for the first time. 

I just loved how their story comes together and they grow individually as well as together. I guess with all of the crazy going on around them they don't have much of a choice. 

The Scripture infused throughout this story is very encouraging and a great reminder as to why it's so important to have God's Word hidden in our hearts. They come up against so much as they try to unravel a couple mysteries, having Scripture at the ready gives strength in the moment. 

I'm going to miss having the Hanger's Horsemen setting things to rights and being heroes in their well honed ways. Maybe there will be a novella down the road!
