THE RENEGADE HERO

by Angi Morgan
 
The Rebel. The Bad Boy. The Loner. Why is a renegade hero so attractive?  

He's been around for a long time….We loved our Rake stories.  A little scruffy around the edges, but he cleans up too handsome for words. Motorcycles, leather jackets, brooding faces, or Adamantium claws…they just make this hero more desirable. 

I love the Marvel Comics Movies. I have them all on blue ray and have watched them multiple times…and I haven't given up on Loki yet. Okay I know I should? He's a villain, but there's something about him (at least Tom Hiddleston) that makes you think that the right woman would change him for the better.  



Some of my first renegade loves were Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood.




And the first time I saw 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU with Heath Ledger... WOW.

My  renegade is Brian Sloane. His small home town believes him guilty of carelessly setting a fire that killed a teacher, they ostracize him and lable him the town "bad boy". For twelve years he stuck it out. Wanting to leave. Needing to stay to take care of the family ranch. Secretly earning money for his father as a paramedic, not caring that the town believed him a drug dealer.

After their father suffers a stroke, estranged brothers are forced to set their differences aside in order to save their family ranch in north Texas--solving a kidnapping and a twelve-year-old murder in the process.

THE RENEGADE RANCHER
Texas Family Reckoning, book two

A TEXAS RANCHER FINDS TROUBLE ON HIS DOORSTEP IN THE FORM OF A KILLER'S BEAUTIFUL NEXT TARGET…

It's clear to Texas rancher Brian Sloane that Lindsey Cook will be a serial killer's next victim. For twenty years someone has been systematically killing off her family in "accidents," and recently her car was deliberately run off the road. The handsome cowboy is willing to be the protector the gorgeous blonde wants—but unwilling to act on their instant attraction.

Before long, the search for Lindsey's stalker leads Brian into more trouble…and right into Lindsey's arms. After one smoldering kiss, he knows there'll be no turning back. Though never one for relationships, he'll risk his life for her…and the surprising secret her family has been dying for.

  5. Angi! You have the best ever covers...I'm thinking it's because your publisher feels the cover has to be as good at the books. :)

    I'm a closet follower of Loki! I just know he's going to come through as a hero. Cute post!!

  7. I love Steve McQueen, I love James Dean, I love Heath Ledger's Patrick Verona, and Clint Eastwood was smoking hot as Rowdy Yates... But ultimately I'd have to pick Tom Hiddleston. Modern day Prince Charming with the bad boy side :)
