The next exciting Lone Star Justice novel

Presiding over the trial of a powerful drug cartel member, Judge Aubrey Madison finds her life threatened, and Texas Ranger Sean McNair isn’t taking any chances.

Lone Star Standoff is book #6 in the Lone Star Justice Series. I hope it won't be the last one. This book finds a Texas Ranger protecting a judge who is presiding of a case of a member of a major drug cartel member charged with murder. Sparks fly between the two as they search for answers to questions in the past and in the future. Can they put the past behind them and survive long enough to figure out if what they have is real? I really enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful, interesting, some light moments, and it had an epilogue! Epilogues really are one of my favorite things. There was a few twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. Definitely worth reading this book and the previous 5 books of the series!

Lone Star Standoff is a fabulous romantic suspense and is from Margaret Daley’s Lone Star Justice series. I enjoyed this book. I had no problem reading this quick paced read from cover to cover in one sitting. It is that good! I love the main characters Sean and Aubrey. I never knew what was going to happen next. I did not find it predictable at all. Lone Star Standoff is getting a well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy suspense filled stories that are clean. I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Lone Star Standoff by Margaret Daley was a suspenseful read with a sweet romance. Aubrey is a widowed mother of twins. He husband was a Texas Ranger that died on the job and has her extremely cautious of falling for someone in a dangerous position. She is a judge and the current trial has put her in danger. She calls Sean who is a Texas Ranger to help. He balances investigating the murders and strange happenings while also trying to keep her safe. The book is full of action and suspense. The author did a great job on the romance. It was sweet and realistic. In addition, the mystery and suspense were woven together with the skill of an experienced writer. Although there were several deaths there was nothing graphic. The author created adorable twins that lightened the more serious moments. I would definitely recommend this book. It is the first one I have read in the series and will go back to read the others. I suspect that Pierce has his own book. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. Sexual content – 1 kissing and chemistry Violence - Although there were several deaths there was nothing graphic. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

Judge Aubrey Madison is widowed with two children, she is presiding over a case involving a drug cartel. But when she finds her life being threatened, FBI agent Sean McNair steps up to offer protection. As the threats draw nearer, Aubrey and Sean work together to bring them to a stop. Sean is dedicated to his job and feels called to serve others through his work. He is a strong Christian, and despite his hold ups about family he fits in well with Aubrey's. Her children connect easily with him, and he finds himself surprised by how much he enjoys them. Fraught with tension, this was an engaging read filled with suspense that I didn't want to put down. I admired both Aubrey and Sean who are both driven individuals who have already accomplished a lot in their lives. A page-turning suspense with strong faith and fantastic characters. Action-packed, with great growth and development of characters. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

With high tension mafia court case, several intense and personal cold murder cases, and two adorable twins this tale puzzled, entertained, and delighted. The suspense in the story escalated as the court case moved forward and the mafia cleaners did their best to hold the proceedings at bay. The last quarter of the book was filled with surprising twists and deadly action. I liked how logical and realistic the investigation, and the clues, were to me as they unraveled the past and present cases at the same time. The fear was tangible, the threat concrete, several times the protagonists were in a situation where their lives, and their loved ones, were in serious, potentially deadly danger. Judge Aubrey Madison and Texas Ranger Sean McNair knew each other from before, from Aubrey's husband's murder investigation sometime before. [This time frame kept fading in my mind - was it right at the twins birth, or was it two years ago? Was it the reason Aubrey wanted to be a judge, went back to work when the kids were just months old or were she already working as one when her husband was murdered? Was it my mind wondering or were there timeline confusion, I never figured that out, but none of those points were not big enough issues for me not to enjoy the story.] I liked how even though the feelings between Aubrey and Sean were developing rather fast, there was a feeling like they took their time to get to know each other, and were careful with their developing emotions. Those emotions felt genuine and true, from the apprehension to jump into the relationship, to the deep feel taking root. The inspirational message of trusting God in good times and the bad times, to lean on his understanding, guidance, and protectiveness was well twined into the tale so that it was part of the development of the characters while inspiring the readers. Love Inspired stories are the few ones out there that can be heartening, entertaining, potent, and intense all at the same time - Lone Star Standoff definitely was all of that ~ Four Spoons

Margaret`s books are always great, there hasn`t been a book I didn`t enjoy. They always peak your interest from the first page to the last and this one isn`t any different. I just didn`t want to put it down. The twins in the story are so cute and funny, but I am glad I don`t have to clean up after them. They are the best part of the book, they were just precious. It is a book with lots of twists and turns that keep you turning pages and a surprise ending. Aubrey you feel sorry for, but she is a brave lady. Sean you wish he was your sweetheart. I know you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

Wow! This story was fantastic! The plot kept me riveted to the pages as I waited to see how everything would tie together and what answers these characters would finally get regarding the fates of their lost loved ones. Aubrey Madison and Sean McNair were extremely likable and capable characters. Both of them went through some very painful and trying losses in their pasts, from the death of Aubrey’s husband to the disappearance of Sean’s younger brother. Aubrey was also a loving mother, who cared deeply for how things affected her children. The author did a great job of creating romantic tension in the novel, while still keeping the focus of these characters on solving these cases and also trying to survive. Lone Star Standoff is part of the Lone Star Justice series, but definitely can be read as a stand alone novel without any confusion. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

This novel is packed with suspense, drama, mystery and romance. Aubrey Madison finds herself as judge in a major trial. When her life is in jeopardy she must rely on the handsome Texas Ranger, Sean McNair, to help her stay alive and maybe solve the mystery about who killed her husband years ago. I love the connection and sparks between Sean and Aubrey. There are many twist and turns in the novel. I look forward to reading more from the Lone Stare justice series.

Being a judge over a trial for a drug cartel member is not an easy thing. It's dangerous! Some people think that being a judge is a piece of cake but we find out in this book that it can be a danger to yourself and your family. I gained a new appreciation for judges, even though I already had a lot! Aubrey had already lost her husband to murder 2 years previously but needed to work to support her young twins so went back to work as a judge. This case against a powerful drug cartel member case comes before her and she wants it to be quick and correct but she doesn't know it's going to tie back to her husband's murder AND endanger her & her children! Sean McNair is a Texas Ranger and he's also lost a member of his family to the cartel. He's going to protect Aubrey when her life is threatened and make sure this cartel member's trial takes place. That turns out to be difficult as many things happen to try to derail the trial that keep Sean and Aubrey on their toes. As with all Margaret Daley stories, this one keeps you reading quickly until the last page to see how it all turns out! Fantastic characters and story!

Judge Aubrey Madison and Texas Ranger Sean McNair have both lost someone to a powerful drug cartel. Now she is presiding over the trial of a high-ranking cartel member and Sean is trying to keep her alive. The story is an exciting, action-packed drama interspersed with the antics of the judge’s twin four-year-old son and daughter, Sammy and Camy. The judge doesn’t want to get close to another lawman, and the Texas Ranger doesn’t feel worthy to have a relationship because he failed to protect his brother. While trying to stay alive and keep the judge safe, every way Sean turns another attack is being launched with a growing body count. The reader starts to question if the hero and heroine are going to still be standing at the end of the book. Drawing on their faith, they keep doggedly pushing forward, constantly seeking answers when even the questions are murky. This suspenseful story is well-written and will hold your attention. I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.
