I just enjoyed reading this story. It had a little bit of everything in it and the story kept moving and kept my attention. Bethany Silverton and her parents arrive in Sweetwater, Montana, leaving the "easy" life of Philadelphia behind them. Bethany wagers a good friend that she can get a certain cowboy to attend her father's new church within a month. Hawk Chandler is the cowboy, but he doesn't think he could ever be worthy of Bethany's attention. The admitting of their love for each other is a long time coming with alot of joy and sorrows along the way. Honesty and openess is always important in a relationship and this story proves this to be soooo true! There is alot going on in this story, which kept me turning the pages. I just had a good time reading this book and appreciated the way the author incorporated the importance of relying upon the Lord in all situations. Bethany and Hawk were both good characters you will learn to appreciate and enjoy. ( )

Minister's daughter Bethany, newly arrived in the west, wagers $5 with a friend that she can convince the handsomest cowboy around to attend church. Gambling never pays, or course, and the bet leads to a predictable series of misunderstandings and ultimately to happily ever after.

The story isn't strong, the characters are fairly stereotypical, the villain is cookie-cutter... This is a passably written, gentle, historical western. Very G, very PC, and very vanilla. ( )

When Bethany Silverton left the genteel life of Miss Henderson's School for Young Ladies back in Philadelphia for the raw frontier town of Sweetwater, Montana, she had no idea how much she would enjoy the freedom and danger of this wild country. A conservative preacher's daughter, Bethany can't resist the challenge of charming the most attractive cowboy in town into attending her father's new church. She never dreamed that the cowboy would charm the lady. But Hawk Chandler isn't the only man vying for Bethany's affections. Ruthlessly ambitious Vince Richards thinks Bethany is perfect for him: attractive, gracious, just the woman to help him become governor. And he is determined to get what he wants at any cost. Drawn to one man, an obsession of another, Bethany's quiet life is thrown into turmoil. She wagered her heart on love. Now she has gotten more than she bargained for---and the stakes are about to become life and death.
