Publisher's Summary

When a mail-order bride meets disaster!

All Jesse Jennings ever wanted to do was marry his fiancée, Pauline, and be a rancher, but when Pauline is killed by a band of robbers, Jesse dons a deputy sheriff’s badge, swearing he will obtain justice for her wrongful death.

After Kate Whidby’s parents pass away, she is forced to live with her brother and his new wife, but living with a woman who not only doesn’t like her but resents her presence proves too difficult, propelling Kate to accept a mail-order bride offer. But when she arrives in Texas, not all is as it appears. Kate’s betrothed has a dark past, and when the truth comes to light, she is sent fleeing into Deputy Sheriff Jesse Jennings’ arms. 

Will Jesse find Pauline’s killer? Will Kate find safety and protection? And will he be able to let go of his past to build a new future with Kate?

Love it!

I received this ARC copy of this audiobook from the author, and this is my honest, voluntary review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I loved that, even if I was able to guess at which characters would be a part of the HEA, I wasn't able to quickly guess how the story would get there. I look forward to reading other books from this series! I expect all off you too enjoy it as much as I did. I LOVE a well-written CLEAN romance!!

Great Christian Story

I was so excited to hear this book on audio. I had read it but Daniel James Lewis that read it brought the characters to life and I was able to see them in my mind as I lay back and listened. It is a great Christian book that I would let my 15 year old read without having to worry about what she is reading or to listen too. Kudos to Lorana Hoops and to Daniel James Lewis that read it out loud for us all to enjoy.

Mail order bride

I have enjoyed the book. Lorana did a very good job.

With a scary as mail order brides are there's a good twist with a positive ending.

Great Read

Lawfully Matched (A Texas Sheriff Lawkeeper Romance) was a great read by Lorana Hoopes. Jesse wanted nothing more than to marry Pauline. Unfortunately she is killed by a band of robbers. He becomes a deputy Sheriff in hopes of getting justice for her death. Kate becomes a mail-order bride to get out of her brother and his wife’s house. She arrives in Texas to find out her betrothed has a dark secret. I enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more by the author.

Sweet historical romance

Feb 3, 2018
This was my first book of Lorana's!  A great way to be introduced!!  I'm delighted with the turn of events and how this book had some suspense and mystery woven through the romance!!  This book had a solid Christian atmosphere to it, without being preachy!  I appreciated the second half of the stagecoach scene!  I'll definitely be reading more of this series and Lorana's books!

I listened to the audiobook version just over 2 years after reading it. I’m not particularly fond of the narrator’s cadence or the fact that his narrator voice is the same as one of the main characters.

Liked

This was a nice story. A bit short. Would have liked it to be longer with more depth. The narrator had a nice voice but seemed stiff at times and a bit dramatic and overkill on the southern drawl.
All in all not a bad read.

Great book!

I really enjoyed hearing this book! The reader is not the best in the world but is adequate. The book itself is very interesting. If you like western romances, you will love it. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to listen to western books!

Great, clean, western romance

This was a great story. Moved a little fast to be realistic, but since it's back when men had mail ordered brides, it makes it a little more so. I loved the characters. Another great read, Lorana Hoopes. Thank you!
