Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1868 Rebecca Colfax thought her marriage was perfect until her spouse emptied all their assets and vanished. Broke, she vows to hunt him down and confront him as she needs to know why. However she needs to eat so she accepts work as a saloon singer at the Scarlet Garter in Kansas using the stage name of Glory Bowen.

Former espionage agent Slater Forrester works as a faro dealer at the Scarlet Garter. He worries that the newcomer is out of place at the saloon and vows to keep her safe although he plans not to act on his attraction as he is unworthy of her love. Glory realizes he makes her forget she is married, but also sees he has an inner turmoil that is eating at his soul; she hopes to provide him with solace through her love for him.

The Final Forrester romance (see A REASON TO LIVE and A REASON TO BELIEVE) is a superb historical romance starring two strong lead characters. The story line is fast-paced but it is Rebecca whose courage to love makes her believe she can heal Slater no matter what transgression he believes makes him unworthy. Maureen McKade is simply marvelous

Started off better than #2. We have some interesting characters with intriguing back stories, but too much outside plotting for them to grow. Slater and Rebecca could have spent the entire story conflicting with each other as they dealt with their demons. They fall into bed and love within 3 weeks of having met. I guess I had too much of a gripe with Rebecca going from offended and prim to asking Slater if he wanted to have sex. The romance was contrived and built around lust and the keeping of secrets. I thought the way Rebecca just had to search for her no-good rotten husband so that she could get her baby out of the orphanage was ridiculous. Very disappointed in the ending. I had been hoping this third brother would have been actively looking for the others.

I believe this book was one of redemption; women back in the late 19th century had very few options if they didn't get married. The story of Slate and Rebecca was emotional and heartwarming when he held her son Daniel for the first time. The only issue I saw was with the Epilogue when Slate meets his brothers Creede and Rye in Locust. I just finished the one with Rye and Dulci and they sold her farm in Locust and went to Robles where Creede lived. So the author should re-read her stories to kept the continuity. That was the only thing; I throughly loved the trilogy of these brothers and the different social issues that pretty much transcends periods of time. PTSD, war, martial issues and alcholism are with us today.

Powerful writing extraordinary characters . What an end to an amazing trilogy. Each story got better all the characters displayed grit and determination. The reconciliation of the three brothers was heartfelt as if the reader was part of an extraordinary family called the Forresters

This is the third book in the trilogy of the Forrester brothers. Though not as good as the first two books I still found it an enjoyable read.

I enjoyed the twists and turns woven into the story while the main character tried to solve the mystery of the secondary story going on while the female and male leads in the story dealt with their own demons as they made their way to falling in love.

Maureen McKade is an excellent writer and I highly recommend this trilogy!

his is the third and final book in the Forrester Brothers Trilogy (though it can stand alone as well, I highly recommend the other two books also.) This is not your everyday Historical Romance and I mean that in the best possible way. It's 1868 and Rebecca Colfax is in a mess of trouble. She had always lived the privileged life with her parents in St. Louis but now that they are both gone and her husband has up and left her, after gambling away every penny she had. Now she finds herself and their son in dire straights, so much so that she is forced to put her beloved baby into an orphanage until she can make enough money and find her wayward husband.

She is sure that once he knows he has a son that he will do the right thing by them both. Her search for him takes her to the rustic Kansas town of Oaktree where she is forced to find employment before she can continue her search. Unfortunately no one will hire her accept the owner of a Saloon called the Scarlet Garter. Rebecca was raised as a well to do lady and she never thought she would be forced to ever enter such an establishment let alone work in one!

Slater Forrester has never had an easy life, but things were at least settling down for him since his friend and mentor had taken him on as a dealer in his Saloon. At the Scarlet Garter Forrester plays poker and is trying to put the demons of his past behind him. He is caught completely off guard by his attraction to the new girl that his friend Andrew has hired. While she is working in this "fallen" life he can tell right away that she is completely different than any other bar maid he has ever seen.

Unfortunately for them both things are about to get really ugly.
