Publisher's Summary

Hope Montoya knows someone is poisoning her, but who? She suspects her mother was also poisoned and knows her father was murdered. Who wants her family eliminated? She vows to fight! She realizes she won't last the eight months until she turns twenty-five and her uncle no longer controls her or her estate. Never will she be dominated by a man as she was by her father, as she has seen her mother and grandmothers dominated. If she marries, she gains control now, but only if she weds a man she can trust. Only one man meets her requirements. Can she trust him to protect her and capture the killer…but then to leave?
Micah Stone has been in love with Hope since the first time he saw her. But he was accused of her father's murder and surely would have hung if not for his two brothers' aid. Most in the community still believe him guilty. But the drought has him too worried about water for his dying cattle to care about his neighbors' opinions. When Hope proposes a paper marriage in exchange for land on the Brazos River and much needed cash, her offer rubs his pride raw. His name may be Stone, but he's not made of it. He can't refuse her for long, and so their adventure begins.

Sweet Western Romance

Whenever I get the opportunity to review an author that's new to me I jump at the chance especially if it's a historical romance.

This is the first book in the trilogy of the Men of Stone Mountain. This story focuses on the brother, Micah and his love interest Hope. I enjoy books with a good story and this one delivered an interesting plot, well developed characters, and a sweet western romance. The suspense and mystery in this story added depth and intrigue. The narration was very clear and she did a great job with the accents.

If you enjoy Western Romances definitely give this one a try. I'm off to listen to book 2.

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.

Sweet Surprising Suspense

Intrigued by the summary of this book, I decided to invest in the almost 8 hours it would take to listen to this story and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed Hope's spirit and love for her family and land. Her passion for life made her character someone I wanted to get to know better and the author didn't disappoint. The whole story developed at a pace I found easy to follow without getting bored. There was always something being revealed about Micah, his brothers or Hope's family, but the twists and turns during the second half were a big surprise.
The attraction and longing between Micah and Hope was nothing short of endearing and I waited, almost patiently, to see if they would get beyond their pasts and see what was in front of them.
I thought Valerie Gilbert did a great job with the voices of the different characters. I had no problems distinguishing one from the other and her timing was spot on.
Altogether it was a very enjoyable listen.
