From USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion . . .
What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichael—an independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses. Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error, but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man she’s never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the unmistakable desire in his gaze.
Regan’s far from the docile bride Colton was expecting. Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his life—and in his arms—begins to inspire a new dream. And despite his family’s disapproval and an unseen enemy, he’ll risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.
I love any book by Beverly Jenkins. She never disappoints and this offering is no exception. When you read one of her books you are bound to be thoroughly entertained and receive a history lesson to boot.
This story is about Regan Carmichael who responded to a “wife wanted” ad and is traveling to the Wyoming Territory from Arizona to meet the doctor who is looking for a wife to care for his daughter.
When shots are fired, literally at the handsome six-foot-five former cavalry soldier by the spunky Reagan, Colton Lee has second thoughts about this woman who has come to replace his late wife Adele.
Beverly Jenkins is a gifted writer and always does an excellent job of weaving a story you don’t want to end. The writing is always tight and keeps you turning the pages to find out how the story ends. If this is your first book by this author, I suggest you read everything she has written.
I highly recommend you buy this book!!
