“Lauren Linwood’s talent for writing wonderful romantic stories has just surpassed itself! This is an incredibly vivid romance set in the American Old West. The characters are wonderfully written and intensely believable. From the authentic scenery to the setting of the times this tale is a masterpiece of both romance and the old west. If we did stars…this would be a five star from me!”
“Another winner from Lauren Linwood. The history was accurate and informing.”
“The emotions that the story pulls out of a reader are true, genuine and heartfelt. The romance is tender and protective. It felt really wonderful to read a romance in which the main male character is protective without being possessive or obsessive. Beautifully written and I believe it is a novel that will appeal to readers who love romance stories even if they are not usually fans of the western genre.”
