Within a tough city girl beats the untamed heart of a wild spirit...
Ella Raines may not have the best reputation in New York, but she’s determined to have respect. Knowing she will achieve this in high society, Ella answers an advertisement for a mail-order bride in an up-and-coming Western town, Whiskey River, Wyoming.
Colton Hill is a wandering gunslinger seeking new horizons and is tired of being challenged because he’s the fastest gun around. When he meets Ella, he’s amused by her unusual ambition and agrees to tag along to Whiskey River.
Together, they travel Westward in search of happiness, purpose, and destiny. What they find instead is the spark of something they cannot control.
Theresa Oliver is a new to me author. I really enjoyed this book. Who doesn’t like a good wholesome cowboy romance. Ella is a dance hall girl in New York. She wants to be a respectable woman and she doesn’t think she can do that in New York. So, she goes to a match maker and answers a mail order bride advertisement. Colton Hill is a patron at the dance hall where Ella works and he has seen his fair share of things. He thinks what Ella is doing is crazy but he likes her spunk and drive. He tells Ella that he will go with her to meet her new husband to be. After all a woman shouldn’t travel all that way by herself. All kinds of things could happen to her. Colton thinks Ella is beautiful and could develop feelings for her. Things get interesting during their travels and Ella begins to wonder if she can go through with marring a man she doesn’t know. I enjoy mail order bride books. Things typically don’t go as planned. I like historical romances in general as well. Things were so different than they are now and things seemed simpler. Romance just seemed to happen so fast and without more than just kissing. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. Hopefully these characters will make a reappearance.
