For Delia and her father Frank Burroughs, they will operate one of the swing stations where riders from Three Rivers will stop and exchange one of the Morgan horses between town and the next station. Trouble will plague the Burroughs and other stations down the line.
Ransom McCain is one of the many riders for the Pony Express. As was very common among riders, he is orphaned and on his own. The job comes with plenty of danger, but something he is excited to do. Meeting Delia Burroughs is an added bonus. “I’m not looking to break a record for speed if all I did was deliver the mail from one point to the other and can keep my horse under me and the sky above my head, that’s all I can really ask for.”
The plot will have the beginning of the Pony Express, along with the Three Rivers Station that is run by the Hawkins family and will house many of the riders at the first leg of the journey. While the story does not cover the details of the various runs along the journey, it will introduce several of the riders. Most of the riders all work well together, which includes chores that must be accomplished at the Hawkins station when they are not on one of their rides delivering the mail pouches. Trouble comes in the form of stations being shot at, fires being set, horses injured and turned loose, and even threats made against Delia and her father at their station.
The story is the beginning of a romance for Delia and Ransom, two people that both understand loss. Delia is still mourning the loss of her mother, her brothers moving away, and her father’s drinking causes her heartache. Ransom lost his parents when he was young and was raised by an aunt and uncle, but the passing of his aunt still is painful.
This is a sweet, clean historical based story of new beginnings. “I was meant to come here to Three Rivers,” he turned slightly, facing her so she could see everything in his eyes and still feel the warmth of their hands against the other. “I was meant to take this job so that I could meet you. And I will do what it takes to be worthy of you.” He drew in a long breath. “That is, if you would consent to me, courting you, Miss Burroughs.”
*"The Three Rivers Express Series is a set of Sweet Western Historical Romance which will be written alternately by Reina Torres and Nan O’Berry. Starting with the Spring of 1860 when the Pony Express began their service of mail delivery between St. Joseph, Missouri and Sacramento, California, each of the Three Rivers Express books will take on a new season and a different rider."*
With this said, get ready to ride the trails, with the pony express rider, with heartwarming heroines and some most intrepid heroes!! Feel the danger, the breeze on your face, hear the horse hooves, as they ride by fast and hard to get to the next relay station with the mail delivery and escape the danger that nay await around the next bend. Very exciting read! !
"Always, Ransom", features Ransom McCain, and Delia Burroughs, her father owns the Burroughs station. She is spirited, courageous, brave and beautiful. She is strong enough and determined enough to help her family survive in the West. But one by one her brothers leave to go eleswhere, and persue their own lives and dreams, leaving only Delia and her father to attend to the relay station and keep it running. Her father's struggles and grief, is made worse by all his crew having been run off. This will make it near impossible for Delia to leave and make a family of her own. She must stay and help her father, succeed.
Ransom, is the last man hired to ride for the Three Rivers station, since all the others either were killed or scared off. Ransom was chosen to be the first man to ride west because he could think fast on his feet, and had an adventureous spirit, he's also alone in the world. Tensions are running high, some does not wish for the Express to make it through, they wish it to fail, for their own selfish reasons.
Steady paced, well written with well rounded and engaging characters. I love reading about the early days of the Pony Express rider and the relay stations. The plot was fasticating and intriguing.
From the first page I could not put this amazing story down, it was a spellbinding and quick read, only approximately 177 pages, packed full of a sweet romance, danger, some intrigue, and suspense. I read "Always, Ransom" in one setting.
This sweet, heartwarming story will keep you turning pages as Ransom and Delia figure out the attraction between them and if they are willing to risk what they've found, as the danger that surrounds them tries to pull them apart. Will they risk theit possible HEA and their love? Will their love be strong enough to prevent the nefarious things that are happening from destroying what they've found and the life they both wish?
There are NO cliffhanger, per se, this is a continuous story, however. Book 2 is to be released soon, "Summer 1860 - “Always, Clay” by: Nan O'Berry". I can't wait to see what is next for the "Three Rivers Express" riders and the relay station.
Think of the T.V. shows, "Larmine", or "Young Riders", yes, telling you my age. These shows are probably before most of your time, but I still watch them today, re-runs, of course.
*Note: this is a sweet romance, it does have a few curses words, nothing we all don't hear often, such as "d**mn, he*l etc, they are not vulgar words. There is NO sensual interaction, only kissing.*
A most enjoyable and very satisfying read. Bravo, Reina Torres!! A definite must read for fans of Sweet Romance, Western Historical, Pony Express early days and the brave riders. Powerful and compelling read, "Always, Ransom"!!
Heat rating: Sweet, other than a few curse words
