Frontier/Western Hist Romance

Undercover Bride

I’m typically not much for Western Romances but several Inspirational writers have recently lured me into this market. Ms. Brownley is one of them. Her books tend to have light, fun plots with a sweet love story that just puts a smile on my face. This one was no exception. Maggie Car ...

This Gun for Hire

The vast majority of historical romances that I read are set in Regency England…because the vast majority of historical romances that are written are set in Regency England. However, my two favorite time/place settings are Medieval Europe and American Westerns. It is just very hard to find any rec ...

Softly Falling

Even if I do not always come away from a Carla Kelly book thinking it is one of the best books I have ever read, I always come away satisfied with a good story. I also have to watch myself in grading because I have read so many books by Ms. Kelly that I expect her books to be good and if they fall s ...

The Wrong Cowboy

Sometimes, you just want to read sweet. There are wonderful, wonderful books that are epics, with dramatic storylines and dark villainy, but honestly? I get tired of it. When I’m stressed or exhausted, or have had my sister’s babies in my care for just a moment too long, I want something cute an ...

Marco and the Devil’s Bargain

When I first got my hands on Marco and the Devil’s Bargain, I was a little let down. I hadn’t realized it was the second in a series, and more importantly, that it followed the same couple that had already fallen in love and gotten married in the first book. In the past, I’ve read other storie ...

Tracker's Sin

Tracker’s Sin was labeled an Erotic Western, and despite my misgivings that some genres simply shouldn’t be mixed, I gave it a go. What can I say, the e-book was on sale. Sadly, the combination ended up far more milk and Pepsi than peanut butter and chocolate, and I sure won’t be trying it aga ...

Taciturn rancher Morgan Longstreet advertised for a bride in the papers back East, and Jane Middlebourne, eager to escape her wretched relatives, answered.

Promise Me Texas

Have you ever sat down to read a book and just not clicked with it? There’s nothing clearly wrong with the story—no major plot holes or overly annoying characters. All the same, you find yourself unable to really enjoy reading it. My latest experience with this feeling occurred when I opened up ...

Paradise Valley

I tend to be a fan of tough heroines. As the eldest of three sisters, I try to have a low tolerance for complaining. I guess it’s no surprise that I enjoy reading about other women who just deal with what life throws at them without whining. But honestly, Paradise Valley took that classic characte ...
