Patriarch Angus McKettrick has decreed that his three sons must get married and have kids in order to inherit his ranch. Middle son, Kade, gets himself into a pickle when five ladies show up in town in response to his letters, all vying for the honor of his hand in marriage. Unfortunately for them, Kade takes a shine to Mandy, who shows up in town on the run from an evil stepfather and hiding under a nun's habit. Mandy's hardscrabble past has made her an expert in riding and shooting, which intrigues Kade. The two fight and bicker all the way to falling in love.
These books don't have much in the way of substance, but they sure are fun to read. ( )

First Thought when Finished: These McKettrick boys sure know how to make a girl lose her mind :)

Oh I love historical romance! Specifically, early American historical romance--it makes me smile. Kade McKettrick is all Cowboy: stubborn, hard-headed, loyal, smart, and sometimes just a wee bit cocky (ok nothing wee about it) and Sister Mandy (LOL) was just the woman to put him in his place. I don't know about you but hard not to love a western romance where the girl beats the man in a horse race! Have to admire her gumption!

Final Thought: If you like stubborn cowboys and hard-headed women, you will love this series! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743422740, Mass Market Paperback)

One ranch. Three sons. Only one will inherit...and on one condition. Tired of waiting for his sons to settle down, Arizona-territory rancher Angus McKettrick announces a competition: the first son to marry and produce a grandchild will inherit Triple M ranch. Now, three distinctly different, equally determined cowboys are searching high and low for brides.

Kade McKettrick’s got five mail-order brides-to-be camped out at the local hotel, all more than eager to provide him with the heir that will win him the Triple M ranch. But Kade, the newly appointed marshal, has his hands full with a troublesome outlaw gang. Why, then, is he so easily distracted by pretty “Sister Mandy”—who most assuredly is not the nun she claims to be? On the run from her outlaw stepfather, Mandy Sperrin hides beneath her solemn disguise, and vows to keep her wild, passionate nature from the respectable citizens of Indian Rock. Yet when the handsome marshal makes it clear that he wants her, Mandy gives in to her heated desires....
