From the Back Cover
From USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion . . .
What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichael—an independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses. Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error, but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man she’s never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the unmistakable desire in his gaze.
Regan’s far from the docile bride Colton was expecting. Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his life—and in his arms—begins to inspire a new dream. And despite his family’s disapproval and an unseen enemy, he’ll risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.

Colton needed a mother for his daughter, Anna. He thought Regan was going to be quiet and peaceful like his first wife. Regan turned out to be everything he didn't know he needed or wanted. Seeing the love develop between Regan and Colt was very touching. Regan came there to be a mother to Colt's daughter, but she wanted to be his wife too.
Beverly Jenkins books have never disappointed me. I wait for her books faithfully to hit the shelves and I have read every book she has written. Her books are always multi-cultural. I have learned quite a bit history . This is definitely a romance novel. And I loved it.
As for Reagan and Colt, can you say fire and ice. Yes, when the fire was lit their was no turning back. What I appreciated most was the mutual love that developed. As it was key to see physical attraction go through the bedroom and into an emotional connection. It was then love was able to bloom. Little Anna was key to tying Reagan and Colt together, as her happiness allowed them to go beyond themselves to make their relationship blossom.
You'll smile, you'll become misty eyed, but most of all you'll love seeing a woman walk in her truth and be unapologetic about it.
Loved the little town of Paradise and it's townspeople. The way that they worked, lived, and celebrated together despite being of different races was wonderful, especially given the times. Absolutely loved Spring. I was hoping that she'd find a partner (had my eye on Ed Prescott), but I know our girl will be just fine. My heart went out to poor little Felicity, because she has a witch of a mama. Wish we could've seen Ben come around, but I suspect he's too old and stuck in his ways.
Thanks for including Regan's family reunion. It was great to see everybody and a wonderful way to end the book.
Now about the book.
After corresponding by letter the adventurous Regan, mail order bride, blows into Dr. Colton Lee’s life, an accomplished small-town physician, widower and ever logical man of science dispossessed of passion, literally knocking him off his high horse so to speak! Armed with a rifle and plenty of attitude Regan is more than a notion for Dr. Colton Lee. Regan isn’t the submissive bride he’s hoping would show up, but he has bigger fish to fry Anna, his daughter, needs a mother since like yesterday!
Jenkins does terrific job of pairing these two together despite Dr. Colton Lee’s misgivings upon their initial meeting. Jenkins does not have the characters play a game of cat and mouse much to my pleasure, but the romance is a slow burn until it isn’t! Regan is a woman of desire and full of surprises and compassion. She gently opens the good doctor’s world, as well as, his daughter. Both are combating sorrow and oppressive relatives.
The book also adds a bit of tension with suspense: a shooting and some haters not so happy Regan is in town. If anyone knows anything about Mrs. Jenkins she uses real historical events and/or facts to add a deeper texture and context to her novels. A riot takes places that echoes through time and mirrors our own immigration debate today. Jenkins masterfully handles this piece of history without being overly didactic. In addition, to highlighting micro aggressive and explicit racism and how its impact is a double-edged sword; affecting those perpetrating the notion and its victims. And finally, a recurring theme: community. She ALWAYS has a band of people fighting to support each other. Adding an inspirational flavor to each of her novels.
