I will confess that at first I had a bit of difficulty relating to the shift in her writing, but there was a great deal about the book that I liked.
I found Shannon McMurphy’s character to be believable, and I could sympathize with her insecurities and understand where she came from. She had made the choice to risk travelling to an area that she knew nothing about, to become a wife to man she didn’t know, in hope of having a better life than she would have had before. That took guts. When she realized that the man who sent for her had not been honest about himself or his intentions, she refused to marry him. That took guts. To punish her for refusing him, he left his mark on her… one that she would see every time she looked in the mirror. He thought she would bow to him, but she didn’t.
Cinder was a kind man and in good conscience he could not leave Shannon at John Hardy’s mercy. Since it seemed the only answer, he married her and took her to his ranch. But he is a man who is dealing with his own demons, and they are reflected in how he communicates with Shannon.
Thank God for Cookie, who became Shannon’s staunch ally.
Life in those times was very different than today—I think the author did a good job of portraying how it was. And no matter what decade people live in they are still human beings and have all the emotions that come with being a person. Their culture and past experiences will affect how they react, but they still fear, love, hate, get angry, make mistakes (yes I realise that’s not an emotion), feel insecure, worry…and yes they have sex.
There were a few editing errors. But overall I like the book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical western romances.
The H had his good moments and certainly his bad. At times he was kind and considerate to our h, but others so unfeeling which made me yell at my e-reader.
The secondary character of Cookie brought humor to the story and I enjoyed his straight forward talk.
We do have one very mild lovemaking within marriage, suspense, some violence and we do get HEA and no cliffhanger.
I would have rated higher, because I did enjoy the story, but the ending was rushed to me. First our H tells his wife something that breaks her heart. Cookie has a talk with him, and BOOM immediately 180 turn around. It didn't seem right to me, happened to fast when through most of the book he felt differently. Then we do get an Epilogue, but it was rushed and some part of the story seemed to be missing about his friend.
I would still recommend this book because I enjoyed the spirit of the h. (ljb)
Violence: public attack of a woman
Language: <50 offensive words
Sex: descriptive kissing, then WHAM! sex about 85% in (dang it!)
I thought I was safe and getting a "clean" book, since no one was scantily clad on the cover. This thought was reinforced until the four to five paragraph play by play (his mouth went here, his fingers went here, blah, blah, blah) that was about 85% in. So, that was disappointing.
Also, someone needs to give his H cowboy a lesson in reproduction. His absolute ignorance was Crazy and completely unrealistic.
