Filled with innocent dreams and faith that her hard work training to be a Prima Ballerina on New York's bright stage will lead to fortune and fame, Rita is crushed when she loses her mother and must take a job dancing in a burlesque chorus line to keep a roof over her head. Witnessing a brutal murder is the last straw. The police promise to keep her safe, but Rita has learned to be a realist. Determined to escape the Irish gang that wants her dead and start a new life for herself, Rita heads to Colorado Territory as a mail-order bride.
Jack Colton struck gold in his Central City mine, but the dark recesses of the mine mirror the lonely, dark places in his heart.

Sparks fly when they meet, both hopeful for a bright future. But murder is a poison and it followed Rita all the way from New York. Jack thought his killing days were over, but when an assassin arrives to destroy everything Jack will stop at nothing to protect his new matter the cost.

A New Life!

I really enjoyed THE DANCING BRIDE by Cynthia Woolf. It was a sweet, clean historical romance. Cynthia did a great job describing Central City and how it was different than New York. I can't wait to listen to THE SAPPHIRE BRIDE and that's exactly what I'm listening to next.

The narrator did a really good job with the characters voices and she kept me immersed from start to finish.
