Book Description: Lawman in Disguise

Getting taken hostage by a gang of train robbers wasn't in dime novelist Essie Vanderfair's plans, but interviewing these men could make her career soar. Especially since the gang includes legendary outlaw Tex Beckett, better known as the Texas Titan. Tex is famed for his protection of women and children, so she'll be fine…right?

Keeping the gang in line was hard enough before a stubborn, beautiful writer interfered. Now Tex is scrambling to keep Essie safe, to gather evidence against the gang and most of all to hide his dangerous secrets. First, that he's a detective working undercover. And second, that he's not the Texas Titan at all, but Tex's twin brother, Tate  Beckett.

My Thoughts: The profession of a dime novelist is highly competitive.  Essie has to "up her game" to be published.  When train robbers stop the train she is on, she sees it as a golden opportunity.  Besides, one of the robbers is Texas Titan, and he is known for treating women and children well.

Essie is brilliant at remembering things.  She uses situations from books to get her out of tricky situations.  She thinks quickly.  She adapts well and has a positive personality.

Texas Titan is undercover.  He isn't really Tex, but his twin brother.  Essie's interference is messing up his opportunity to bring the bad guys to justice.  There is also the problem that he finds her intelligent and attractive.  Not a good combination when trying to keep your wits about you.

The characters are fun to read.  They chemistry and a bad situation to fall in love.  There were several instances that brought a smile to my face and I wanted how to know they were going to get out of the mess they were in.  This is a fun book that is set in the "Old West".  There are outlaws, lawmen, and a feisty heroine.
