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?

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!
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.
Cora Seton does it again with The Airman's E-Mail Order Bride. I am absolutely in love with this entire series. If you haven't had the chance, I highly recommend you pick up the entire Chance Creek series.
This last book of the series starts very funny and improbable but, you get attached to the characters and their banter.
It is sad to see the guilt Colt carries over the death of his father but as things evolve and he meets his secret son with Heather, the love they shared get stronger and they put everyone in a mess, while fighting for his love...
Sweet story, not anything to die for...
I hated the narration: male and female voices very similar and the sound kept going up and down.
Overall, I liked the series.
A different take on a story. Modern too. Love how the H stood up to the Aunt at the end and went w his heart and how he recreated the Impala part too. The only bad thing is you could tell when they went back and re recorded or added parts it was louder and had a different tone. so if you listen w headphones be prepared for a sudden change in valume
By far one of the best books I have listened too. Not only is it an amazing story, but the reader emphasized on all characters, which made listening so much more exciting.
I love the Chance Creek stories and the characters that inhabit them! Cora Seton does a wonderful job making unforgettable characters with real life issues and concerns. This is the fourth of four brothers and their quest to regain their home by marrying within a one year time frame to fulfill the requirements of their controlling great aunt. Colt and Heather have a history and a son that Colt didn't know about. Drama, drama, drama. Love it! The narrator did a good job, but I have ALL the other Chance Creek stories, and her interpretation of some of the characters didn't match my perception of them - especially Camilla Torres.
Narrator did a great job of making the characters come to life. I wish Heather would have shown a little more backbone, but a good story overall.
Colt Hall, youngest of the Hall brothers, is on his way home to Chance Creek. He is the last holdout in Aunt Heloise’s bizarre requirement that to regain the family ranch, all four brothers must marry within a year and at least one heir must be produced during that time, too, or the ranch will be sold to developers. Three brothers are married, there are babies on the way, but Colt must still marry. So, he finds a willing bride online, leaves the Air Force, and heads home – where he finds out that he has a teenage son, a love that still lives on (even through his guilt), and an extra bride! What a mess! Aunt Heloise is still pulling the puppet strings causing chaos, more guilt and stress.
Old relationships are examined and rebuilt, families are made, torn apart, and pieced back together again, and we get to visit with all of the brothers and their wives. The obstacle course is still important, and love and family are the order of the day. Cora Seton has provided us with another good read with complex relationships, laugh-out-loud situations, a few tears, and family. The love and relationships are believable and the emotions seem real. A wonderful book about the last brother. Even if you've never read any of the other books in this series, you will easily know who's who and become part of the world of the Hall family.
The narrator for this book, Anika Solveig, did a good job of keeping all of the characters straight and giving them each their own voice. She gave this story a fast pace that kept everything moving. I enjoyed reading the book, and I really enjoyed listening to it, too. Well worth it!
