Tormented by the knowledge that his father died thinking the worst of him, Colt Hall never meant to come home to Chance Creek. But with his brothers banding together to rebuild the family's old ranch, he's finding it hard to stay away. In accordance with the conditions for them to inherit the spread, Colt must soon marry. Too bad the only woman he wants is Heather Ward, the girl he walked away from years ago without saying good-bye.
Heather hid a secret for 12 long years, but when the Halls moved back to town it was only a matter of time before the truth came out. Now everyone but Colt knows he has a son. She'll get one chance to convince Colt to forgive her - and become the father Richard has always longed for. If she answers Colt's online ad for a temporary wife, will he fall in love with her before he learns the truth?
Colt knows it's crazy to try to find a wife through an Internet ad, and it's even crazier to fall for a stranger who wants far more than a temporary marriage, but Helena Warner reminds him so much of Heather, he begins to wonder if the two might be the same woman. Heather can't believe she's using a fake name to seduce the father of her own child, but is it possible Colt might know more about her true identity than he's letting on? Once all the lies and secrets are stripped bare, Colt and Heather must answer the ultimate question: Can a love interrupted ever be renewed?

even a better listen! great story still!
catchy, will stick with me, nice voice to listen to. (had some loud places, but not sure if that was my media or the audios, not sure where to even report that, just an FYI)
Heather! Strong yet vulnerable, great mother, great woman, struggles but tries and tries to do what's right and is just real!
Colt- she captured his personality, how he feels, how he expresses himself.
YES! it was exciting! even after reading it and then listening to it, I wanted it all at once! ached through it, cried, laughed, and just kept going!
still wanted to smack Colt, even more so "hearing" how...flustered? he got with the situation...but loved it still! great ending! and I enjoyed listening to the words!

The Airman's E-Mail Order Bride
I loved this story! It is so well written and the idea of an email order bride puts a new spin on the mail order brides of the old west. This is such a great concept.
Colt definitely! My heart hurt for all his pain and the guilt he carried. It is such a life lesson. We hold onto guilt and can only see the situation from our POV. When Colt's family showed him how much they loved him and didn't blame him for his dad's death it was such a help in his healing.
I didn't like this narrator nearly as much as the one in the first book of this series. When listening to the second book after immediately hearing the first one I almost didn't get through it.
When Colt told the family about everything he felt such guilt over and their love and concern helped his healing. He had been in such pain for so long. When he went to visit the parents of his friend he couldn't save and the conversation they had with him had me in tears.
I love this series. It will be one I listen to again.
