THE FIRST TIME is a delightfully fresh romance that will fascinate romance lovers who enjoy strong, forceful women who question the social amenities of civilization . . . the Canadian background and the depth of Colin's passion bring this romance a tingle and tension that rescues THE FIRST TIME from the stereotyped conventions often found in the romantic genre. Recommended.

. . . I love the way Kathryn Fox strings words together. Her prose is wonderfully evocative and constructed with a lilting rhythm. . . . it's like listening to music that is so beautiful, you forget to pay attention to the words the vocalist is singing.

Maggie Hayes helped her father, George, with the illegal whiskey trading all her life. She could out shoot and out drive any of her father's men. She was the best! When Colen joined her father's men of bootleggers she found herself drawn toward him. But he quickly disappeared from the gang and left her wondering of all the new feelings she was experiencing.
When the Mounties raided George Hayes's gang, Maggie was taken to Fort McLeod. She was too sick to even realize where she was. Constable Colen Fraser nursed her back to health. Her father had escaped and was still at large. George learned that Colen had been a spy for the Mounties and how Colen felt about Maggie. He left Colen a note to marry Maggie and keep her on the right side of the law. Maggie's heart was torn between her love for Colen and loyalty to her father.
**** This is one of the few books I have read that is centered around the Mounties. I was fascinated from the first chapter! This story began when the Northwest Mounted Police were just being formed. An excellent story that will captivate readers quickly! I hear that two co-charcters of this story will get their own tales told! I find myself looking forward to the next story from Kathryn Fox!

THE FIRST TIME is a wonderfully researched story of the fledgling Northwest Mounted Police . . . the dialogue between (Colin and Maggie) can be extremely funny, especially when he tries to explain to her what women's "drawers" are.
