Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and abducting a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expected to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from his pa, but instead ended up rescuing a feisty copper-haired woman who was on her way to marry Sullivan’s dangerous enemy.
Emily McCarthy doesn’t take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she’s hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Luke has crossed a vicious man, a powerful rancher not used to losing, and Emily is the prize he’s unwilling to sacrifice.

My Review: I picked up this book because I thought it was supposed to be a “Mail Order Bride” type book, and admittedly, I’m a sucker for those. Don’t ask me why! 😉 This book started out that way, but quickly changed perspectives and storyline. It became much more about cattle, then about anything else. I lost interest and was glad when I was finished reading. The characters seemed underdeveloped and the story just went off in a direction that was far different than I was expecting. If you like western cattle-battle stories, you might like this, but for me it was disappointing.
