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.… (more)

Read Harder 2018: A romance novel by or about a person of color. ( )

This is probably my favorite book in the Old West series, and that's seriously saying something. Absolutely loved it! ( )

This was a very sweet romance. The characters were likable, the heroine was spunky and could take care of herself. It did not have some of the issues I usually have with romance novels. When the characters had a misunderstanding it only lasted a couple of pages until they actually decided to communicate with each other and clear it up! There was a bit of steaminess, but not so much that it took over the story or made me uncomfortable. The author included real historical events and in the afterward encouraged the reader to research them further. The next time I have a challenge that requires a romance novel, I will definitely pick up another novel by Beverly Jenkins. ( )

One of the things that I really appreciate about Beverly Jenkins's work is that she writes the kinds of characters that modern readers find appealing, yet is able to flawlessly fold them into their proper historical context without losing any of that likability. Having read my fair share of HR, this is a rare talent, indeed, and one that should be nourished!

Regan Carmichael is my favorite Beverly Jenkins heroine yet, which is saying a lot considering how much I loved Billie Yates (Destiny's Surrender). Maybe it's not surprising that Regan and Billie have a lot in common - both strong women with a strong sense of who they are and how they fit into the world.

Regan is a firecracker who makes waves everywhere she goes. The fact that her first meeting with her husband-to-be is her shooting him (accidentally) gets things off to a rollicking start. She's moved to Wyoming as a mail-order bride because she longs adventure. She believes she's made an advantageous match with Dr. Colton Lee, a widower who needs a bride as a mother to his daughter, to get her out from under the influence of her nasty aunt Millie. Colt doesn't expect to find himself wanting Regan to stick around as much as his daughter Anna does, but he does.

This was a wonderful story, full of Ms. Jenkins' trademarks of strong characters, fascinating history, and lots of low-angst loving =) There is a bit of last-minute drama, but it somehow works with Regan as the central character in a way that it doesn't with a more low-key lady. Regan lives drama, so the rocks-fall-everyone-dies last chapter actually feels like a fitting ending instead of a last-minute add-on. ( )
