Publisher's Summary

Greta Nilsson's trip west to save her ailing little sister, Astrid, could not have gone more wrong. First, bandits hold up her stagecoach, stealing all her money. Then, upon arriving in Fairplay, Colorado, she learns the man she was betrothed to as a mail-order bride has died. Homeless, penniless, and jobless, Greta and her sister are worse off than when they started.

Wyatt McQuaid is struggling to get his new ranch up and running and is in town to purchase cattle when the mayor proposes the most unlikely of bargains. He'll invest in a herd of cattle for Wyatt's ranch if Wyatt agrees to help the town become more respectable by marrying and starting a family. And the mayor, who has promised to try to help Greta, has just the candidate in mind for Wyatt to marry.

a cowboy for keeps

The story idea was good...but the main characters were too emotionally unstable..all the second guessing made me want to pull my hair out.

Fight or flight...that's the question.

Decent enough story but as always the angst of flip flopping and not making a solid decisions got on my nerve. You either fight for your love or you let them go. Just make up your mind already! Narration was okay until she did that oh so sweet voice that works my nerve also.

Realistic - Heartbraking - Very Heartwarming

I liked the story line, but I found the self talk - character thoughts expressed at length became tiresome. However, that won't stop me from reading Book 2 as soon as it becomes available in audible format! I searched for it, but I realized that this book just came out this year - 2021. Hurry, please! 😀

Clean Romance

Loved the story and the complex cast of characters! A little tedious with the secrecy and tension; I wanted to shout, "Just tell him/her how you feel!" ...but that is the nature of the genre.

Good bones, frustrating moments average narrator

I loved the characters and the story had good basics but some frustrating moments where just felt like yelling at them or something. though I have read much more worse frustrating books so thank you for making tolerable because while I wanted to yell some sense into them I didn't want to pull my hair out like in some books or in my opinion. I really liked the theme and essence of the story. wasn't a huge fan of the narrator but hey it was tolerable. looking forward to finishing the series.
