Publisher's Summary

He's different from any man she's ever known. However, she's sworn never to risk her heart again.
Brooke Baker, sold as a mail-order bride, looks to her future with dread but firm resolve. If she survived Uncle Jackson, she can survive anyone. When Sky Jordan hears that his nefarious cousin has sent for a mail-order bride, he knows he has to prevent the marriage. No woman deserves to be left to that fate. Still, he's as surprised as anyone to find himself standing next to her before the minister.
Brooke's new husband turns out to be kinder than any man has ever been. But then the unthinkable happens and she holds the key that might save innocent lives but destroy Sky all in one fell swoop. It's a choice too unbearable to contemplate...but a choice that must be made.
A thirsty soul. Alluring hope. An oasis of love. Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

Narrator's perfect diction subtracted

Ms. Bonner has perfect diction. That would normally be a postitive comment. However, in a western historical book, to hear her pronounce every consonant did not fit the book. Even when reading the voices of roughened, uneducated cowboys, they had perfect diction.

The story didn't speak to me as I was continually cringing at the narration. Perhaps the author is also responsible for using language that wouldn't commonly be in the vocabulary of a frontiersman.
