Publisher's Summary

Feisty schoolteacher Tori Henderson values her independence and has no use for a husband. When she finds herself the legal guardian of her two nieces and two nephews, and facing eviction from her Kansas home, she enters the 1889 Oklahoma Land Run and confronts a new set of challenges. The biggest obstacle being her new neighbor, cocky lawyer Jesse Cochran, the son of a whore - a man determined to put his past behind him and start a new life and family of his own.

Despite the undeniable attraction between them, Tori is determined to keep him at arm's length, but a family emergency brings them together and they declare a truce. Can Jesse win Tori's heart after a series of unplanned events, or will tragedy tear them apart forever?

    Story
    "Warm, Romantic and Funny!"

    Narrated by Lara Wells - Loved her! Really good production, she doesn't overact, wonderfully pleasant voice to listen too. Super!

    Loved the story, I think the narration really added to the enjoyment - Starts out in Nebraska and ends up in Oklahoma during the Government Land Runs into Indian Country.

    Young school teacher Tori ends up in a bad situation when her brother dies, she comes to care for his four children and a month later, the bank takes the house. She decides they are going to take part in the land run and have a fresh start. While preparing for the run she, of course, meets a handsome cowboy with a deep velvet voice, muscular thighs, piercing blue eyes, definitely male, who smells like sweat, horses and man - while collecting kindling. They clash, tingles run down spines, but still she stays to feud over a pile of sticks. Moving right along, she runs, she claims her land and guess who claimed the plot right next to hers? Yup...you got it. Mystery sweaty, horse smelling man! All kidding aside, I really did enjoy this book. You do have to endure some repetitive musings about their haunting pasts and some historical inaccuracies, but other than that, it was really a terrific listen and an enjoyable story. I really ended up loving both Tori, Jesse and the kids and the epilogue was terrific! It's a keeper!

    I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from AudiobookBoom, in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Ok"

    I received this book for fer in order to give an honest review. I did enjoy the story. Was much longer then I thought it needed to be. Not much really goes on. Just a nice story . Much of it seems way to modern in thinking for the time frame it's placed in. Narrator is good. Over all as I said just a nice little story.

    Story
    "Entertaining Historical Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    A historical love story that builds gradually.

    The real life ups and downs that relationships face. These trials and tribulations just happen to take place in a really good entertaining, enjoyable and sometimes very funny historical romance.

    The story of Tori Henderson and Jesse Cochran two people who find themselves neighbor's after the 1889 Oklahoma land rush.
    Each is dealing with their own issues. Tori is the custodian of her 4 nieces and nephews and determined to never get married. Jesse is determined to prove to Tori that he is the man for her. A family emergency forces them to work together which brings them even closer. When they go though a heartbreaking situation, it tests both of them. You don't really know what you have until you face losing it.

    While the story is filled with a wide range of great characters, Tori tested the limits of stubbornness at times and this made her character a little less likable. Jessie has the patience of a saint and a heart of gold that makes him a lovable character.

    Laura Wells did a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice easy to listen to. Great character voices. She really conveyed all of emotions of the characters especially Jesse's and Tori's.

    "A Run for Love: Oklahoma Lovers, Book 1"

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”


    A nice historical fiction. Strong female protagonist, independent and raising four nieces and nephews. Oklahoma land rush happens and Tori wants to claim a piece of land. Male protagonist, attraction and sparks fly. There are many twists and turns to get to the end.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. I have a major complaint about pronouncing of Arkansas City. Any Kansan will tell you it is pronounced Ark-kansas the same as the river in the states borders.

    "A Special Love"

    This story is wrapped up in the history of the Oklahoma land run and a young lady named Tori Henderson and a man named Jesse Cockrun. Tori is the sole support of her brother's 4 children. Taking over the care of the children is definitely not all roses and Tori decides to make the land run. While she is working on her run Jesse is also doing the same so he can open a lawyer's office in the new territory. They manage to get their lives intermingled and have a very strong attraction. Things happen to put the attraction into reality and they end up married. Their story gets more complicated after that and you will want to follow their lives to see how things end up. I highly recommend this book.
