5.0 out of 5 starsAnother loving read
Reviewed in the United States on December 30, 2019
First, I love everything I've read of Peggy's writing. This is another loving look at two people thrown together. We know they are meant for each other, but they dont. The scenes and people are skillfully drawn, the story line has enough suspense and back story to fill out everyone and keep you wanting to read more. But this story has me REALLY wanting a story about Reverend Johnson...just saying Peggy..hint, hint....💗
5.0 out of 5 starsTime-travel Western, touching, exciting, and suspenseful

Peggy L. Henderson's AIN'T NO ANGEL is the story of a young woman, Laney Goodman, a former foster child kicked around the system for years, who is finally at the end of her rope. Unlucky in love and life, she dreams of finding work as a horse trainer. Although she has real talent, experience, and sensitivity with horses, her lack of formal credentials continually frustrate her ambition. Out of money and in danger of being homeless, she falls prey to an attractive man who professes to love her, but in fact intends to prostitute her.
A last-minute, out-of-the-blue offer of work as a therapist for an injured horse on a Montana ranch seems too good to be true, but despite her suspicion that there's a hidden catch, Laney cannot turn the job down. She hesitantly accepts the offer, only to find to her dismay and disbelief that there is indeed a catch. A big one. While it's true there is an injured stallion on a Montana ranch run by an honest, hardworking, virile and appealing, but deeply troubled man named Tyler Monroe, Laney's start date isn't quite what she expected. Her new job exists not in 2013 or 2014, but in 1872.
Ms. Henderson deftly handles Laney's initial disbelief and disorientation, as well as her attempts to cope with 19th century rustic life, with sensitivity, suspense, ingenuity, and even humor. Laney discovers a fellow wounded soul in Tyler, and his willingness to take a chance on her gives her the opportunity to find purpose in her life. But trouble lies ahead – not just from the trauma of their pasts, but from natural calamities as well, made all the worse by a bitter man who means to ruin Tyler. AIN'T NO ANGEL is an exciting story, and the gifted Ms. Henderson takes the reader on a touching, emotional, and action-packed romantic adventure.
As an added bonus, anyone who loves horses – or just enjoyed "The Horse Whisperer" – will be delighted with the author's knowledge of, and great affection for – these wonderful, magnificent animals. Highly recommended!

Ain’t No Angel (Second Chances Time Travel #2) By: Peggy L. Henderson 5/5 stars
Delaney Goodman had a bad home life, from which she was eventually removed & shuffled from foster home to foster home. She never really got involved long-term in any foster home because of how quickly she was moved. But at one, she learned the art of equine massage therapy and working with racehorses. But life never got easier. At her wit’s end of being flat broke & not having money for rent or food, she decided to become an escort. Her first client was a little old man who offered her a second chance at life…the beloved Reverend Johnson.
When Delaney wakes up, she’s dressed in a highly uncomfortable dress on a real stagecoach. She’s disoriented and confused about where she is and what is going on. Then she finds herself in an Old West town, with a man who came to town to meet her.
Tyler Monroe is emotionally shut down to almost everything except his horse ranch & the men who work for him. But when he ends up with a mail-order bride that he doesn’t much want, his world quickly changes. His first intentions of sending her back change the moment he sees her and instead takes her to the church to get married. When they get there, the Reverend Johnson is there & privately gives Laney her options for obtaining her second chance.
Laney knows she will have her hands full in trying to complete her mission of taking care of Tyler’s horse (because women didn’t work with or have horse knowledge in the 1800s) and also of trying to heal her new husband. Tyler has shut down emotionally and has severe trust issues, and wants a respectable woman/wife, so Laney won’t be able to use her feminine wiles to be able to get close to and fix her husband.
Little by little both Tyler & Laney develop feelings for each other which progressively become more, to the point that Tyler & Laney realize that they love their spouse. But there is trouble on the ranch, in that someone is trying to cause harm to Tyler’s horse ranch and even possibly to Tyler and his wife. If they can make it out alive, will they be able to stay together and live happily ever after in the past or will Laney have to return to the future?
5.0 out of 5 starsStruggle And Trust Come Together
Reviewed in the United States on October 27, 2017
I loved this story! While Laney could be considered a "Tomboy" in this century, she has a hard time adjusting to the social expectations she finds herself in. Tyler is drawn to the strange things Laney says and does but at the same time, not sure if he can trust her new ways when his beloved horses are in danger. I guess I loved this story so much because I could really relate to Laney. Peggy Henderson has a wonderful gift to her writing that draws the reader into her books and the characters in them. I would highly recommend this book.

The author spins a powerful yarn that rolls along holding the reader captivated the length of the novel.
Delaney Goodman is in a bad situation, a capable kind and loving person is about to meet her second chance in life. Meeting an older man who gives his conditions which she cannot refuse she is thrown back to a time when her knowledge of horses will stand her in good stead.
The descriptive detail on a ranchers life, costume, and a love horses shines on each page. We are there with Tyler and Laney dealing with the events in 1875. More importantly following the developing affection and love between them, a beautiful romance, were Laney proves she is Tylers Angel.
In this the second novel in the series we are given a glimpse in to the third novel which is just as enticing for lovers of romance.
4.0 out of 5 starsInteresting historical information in Acknowledgments
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 29, 2020
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first in the series but it was entertaining. What bumped this up from 3 to 4 stars was the information in the acknowledgments about the historical event that triggered the story. I love stuff like that. I will read Gabe's story.
