Trana Mae Simmons reaches out with her very first sentence of Mountain Magic and drops the reader deep into the world of wild mountain men and women. Ms. Simmons skillfully throws in just the right touch of excitement, mystery and danger to keep the reader sitting on the edge of her chair, unwilling to put Mountain Magic down until the very last I love you.

The story occurs near Lander Wyoming in 1829. The Blackfeet orphaned Caitlyn when she was five years old. A mountain man (O'Shaunessy) found a week later and raised until his death when she was a young woman.
Jonathan Clay had spend a year in the mountains learning how to stay alive under the guidance of Silas who is also Caitlyn's new foster father. Oh yes he's also running from his past in Virginia.
Naturally they don't get along, But after a couple of years of surviving the wilderness, attacks by evil Indians and Irishmen they fall in love. As well as telling their back stories. Oh well they're all dead now anyway, I mean it was almost two hundred years ago.
It was a great story, there was a bit of history in it, the characters were believable and likable except for the bad guys who were just the scum of the earth.
Read it you will like it.
As a novice trapper, Jon is taken under the guidance of Silas, who teaches him the skills he needs to survive and flourish. We also meet, Caitlin or Cat O’Shaunessy. Cat, as a five-year-old, witnessed the massacre of her family by the Blackfeet. As the lone survivor, she was rescued a week later by Mick O’Shaunessy who adopts her. He teaches her all about survival in the wilderness and trapping.
While visiting a Nez Perce encampment, Jon and Silas participate in a gambling game. As part of his winnings, Jon gets Cat. Only, she is known as Smelly Woman. Apparently, after recently loosing her adoptive father in an accident with a bear, Cat moved in with the Nez Perce to survive the winter. As a means of protection, Cat’s strategy was to have poor personal hygiene to keep unwanted male suitors away. Now, realizing that she has just been lost in a gambling game, an angry Cat faces traveling with two complete strangers. Sparks fly when Jon and Cat meet. Like Jon, Cat, too, is emotionally wounded. She suffers from the trauma of the massacre and finds it difficult to connect and trust others. Silas, who happened to be a friend of Mick O’Shaunessy, agrees to take Cat under his protection. He also assumes the role of an “unofficial” matchmaker and referee between Cat and Jon.
This western romance is a heartfelt story focusing on two wounded characters and their journey toward healing, I appreciated the way Ms. Simmons uses literary devices like dialog helps the reader to observe the genuine emotion between Jon and Cat as they struggle to overcome their fears and accept their feelings toward each other. and descriptive language that weaves this story. Additionally, her use of descriptive language provides the reader with insight into the life and challenges that mountain men faced. Scenic descriptions also helped with transporting the reader into this story. I also liked the way she introduced suspense into her plot as we tried to figure out who was after Cat. The ending was a surprise. If you want to find out what happened to these two and solve the mystery behind who was after Cat then I recommend you read this book.

Jon Clay has partnered up with old Silas, a mountain man. At the annual rendezvous he wins a woman in a game with an Indian. Covered in every kind of muck 'Smelly Woman' turns out to be white.
The only reason I did not give five stars is because I am really picky and rolled my eyes up at the thought of Jon's attraction to this woman in her disgusting state-unbelievable.
