Publisher's Summary

The first three novels in the series that critics describe as "a wonderful blend of hope, passion, romance, and humor."

Westward Winds

Tessa O'Connor lives in a world of privilege and excess. Her doting parents want her to make a good match with a worthy gentleman and live a respectable life. She is beautiful and intelligent and she comes with a hefty dowry. There is no reason that she shouldn't be able to find an eligible man and settle down.

Tessa gets married to Dean and they struggle to find common ground and make their marriage work. Will they each take the risk and open their hearts to one another? Can their marriage survive, and will they find love and contentment in each other?

Westward Dance

Madelyn O'Connor is beautiful, popular, and comfortable with her opulent life. That is until she is brutally attacked by the son of one of the wealthiest families in Pittsburgh. Her parents are ready to fight the case out in the courts, but Madelyn doesn't want any publicity about it. She wants to forget that it ever happened, but can't.

Seth Samuels, Tessa's brother-in-law, becomes injured when he and his men are attacked by wild dogs on a cattle drive. He's morose and anxious over the prospect of not being able to participate in drives any longer. Tessa sees two people she loves hurting and thinks that maybe they can help each other when no one else can. She appeals to Seth to help convince Madelyn to come west. Seth refuses at first, but then figures that since he can't do much else, he might as well try to help.

Westward Bound

Claire O'Connor is the youngest of the three O'Connor sisters. Unlike her older siblings, Claire doesn't have great skills in social niceties. Even though she tries to fit in, Claire will never be popular in the elite world in which she was born. Claire would much rather be in school or learning business strategy from her father than do anything else. When she travels to Montana for her sister Maddie's wedding to Seth Samuels, she meets the youngest Samuels brother, Marcus.

She's attracted to his dark good looks and flashing gray eyes, but knows he thinks of her as an annoying kid who happens to be extremely intelligent. During the time she spends in Montana, she and Marcus develop an antagonistic relationship, which Claire purposely fosters to hide her crush on him. She dreams of snaring Marcus' heart one day, and begins her secret mission as soon as she arrives back in Pittsburgh.

Good conclusion

If you could sum up Montana Mail Order Bride Box Set in three words, what would they be?

Dialogue, Diverse, Honest

What other book might you compare Montana Mail Order Bride Box Set to and why?

The Whisperers: A Three Book Box Set by Ciana Stone both have three siblings who fall in love with three other siblings in a western setting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In Westward Winds, Tessa and Dean have a problem with communication but they put the effort in and eventually come to an understanding. It’s frustrating to see them arguing but very satisfying to see them work it out.

Any additional comments?

I received this book free for review.

Romance and Excitement In Every Chapter !

Would you listen to Montana Mail Order Bride Box Set again? Why?

I absolutely want to listen to this Box Set again because it was so fulfilling and romantic! It satisfied every emotion a listener looks for in a good book: Romance, mystery, tenderness and much more is told with such amazing narration by J. Scott Bennett. Since there are three stories in this set of books, the listener gets many hours of happy listening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The book starts out with the story of Tessa who is the oldest daughter in her family of three sisters. She has been brought up in a high-society family with money and is used to all of the best things in life. She has a yearning for something more "real" in her life and decides to go out on her own and find what she wants. She sets off to find a man who can love her for who she is inside. She also paves the way for her two sisters to do the same thing. Each sister has her own unique story to tell. This is a wonderful story about two families who come together.

Which character – as performed by J. Scott Bennett – was your favorite?

J. Scott Bennet has the voice of a true western cowboy! I loved his portrayal of Dean, the oldest of 3 brothers in Montana. Listening to the narrations brings the listener into the story and I could imagine myself sitting on the front porch talking with Tessa and Dean and discussing family events.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Since this was such a long story, I couldn't have listened to it in one sitting, but I certainly must have set a record for how quickly I completed this trilogy. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. I plan on re-listening to this entire book very soon !

Any additional comments?

I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest review and I am extremely grateful to J. Scott Bennet for allowing me the pleasure of hearing his sexy and sultry voice once again. He knows how to tell a great story !!

Montana Mail Order Brides

Any additional comments?

Entertaining, enjoyable and humorous sweet romances. This collection includes the first three books in the Montana Mail Order Bride series.

Having the first three books together in one collection is wonderful. The combination of Linda Bridey's stories and J. Scott Bennett's narration make these historical western romances worth your time.

Even though each of the stories follows the same basic premise each one is unique and very enjoyable. The stories follow the Samuels brothers as they each find their HEA. I ended up listening to the series out of order but that did not hinder the enjoyment of any of the books. Book 3, Marcus and Claire is still my favorite, I enjoyed listening to it again.

J. Scott Bennett does the narration for the series. He does a fantastic job. Great character voices. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. He has one of those voices that is very easy to listen to. His narration brings the story and characters to life. You are never disappointed when listening to a book he is narrating.

Very enjoyable clean from Listen I loved it

Westward Winds
Tessa wants more out of life than to be someone’s wife who is there to make her husband look good, never having a mind of her own, living with a boring man who is just out to make a name for his self living it up with party after party. She wants a man who truly is a man one that doesn’t mind a women being a women with a mind. She has gone through all the men in her town and fines them lacking, she sees an ad for a mail order bride which seem exciting. When Deans brother tells him about the mail order bride program Dean laughs and said sure why not. His brother write for him, when a letter comes back they are both shocked to get a reply. Dean wasn’t even serious but his brother was. Dean is great at a lot of things but writing and telling about his feelings has never been one of his strong points. He agrees to let his brother write back to Tessa, of course he reads her replies and tells his brother what to write with his brother adding more in detail of things a woman might like to hear which will cause trouble down the road. Dean likes what he sees when he meets Tessa as times goes on he finds he is very attracted to her never guessing he would feel this way about another women. They write back and forward getting to know each other and agree to meet.


They have their ups and downs as they learn to talk, and deal with day to day issues. Most day’s things are more down than up leaving Dean confused as to just what Tessa wants or expects. She sure does know how to beat a dead horse.

Westward Dance
My heart really went out to both Madelyn and Seth both are about as broken as a person can get. Maddy is attacked by a trusted friend and Seth fell and broke his leg as it turns from bad to worse not knowing if he will even be able to keep it much less walk or ride again. The family set about match making getting these two together both writing back and forth they get to know each other. Things really takes off when Seth goes and stays with Maddy’s family why he gets his leg taken care of. The story doesn’t end there, their love grows but things get in their way and it is a pretty rocky road for a time. It is a story of pain, sorrow, love, needs, wants, and compassion.


Westward Bound
I am not sure I would call this was a mail order bride story since the two met once at the sisters wedding and wrote to each other keeping in touch. They kept me smiling and laughing at these two get on each other’s nerves trying to get the best of the other. With the conflict between daughter and father Claire decides to move out west with her sister. She is tried of not being good enough like a son would be. Things happen that will help them both if they marry. Claire has always loved Marcus, but he isn’t too crazy about her. Their back and forwards mail is truly entertaining and will have you laughing.


J. Scott Bennett did a wonderful job of narration he put feeling into the audio. His voice is very powerful, clear and pleasant to listen to. There are no background noises or any volume changes His tones are very even he never leaves you guessing how the character feels. He gives you a very clear rich audio that you do not want to put down. The male voices are as pleasant as his female voices. You never have any trouble knowing who is talking or just what is on their mind. He uses the correct tones with each character just as I pictured them to be. He chuckles when he needs to or shows sorrow through his voice. I really enjoyed his voice and could listen to it all day with no problem. Mr. Bennett has become one of my favorite narrators I know when I see his name I am going to be taken away and truly enjoy the listen.

The author gives you a delightful set of stories that keeps your attention why she pulls you in with a few shocks along the way. The plot is great as the author brings the west of long ago to life giving you a story of so much pain, misunderstanding, sorrow and so much love. I loved the twist and turns she brings keeping you guessing at some things and other times you know just where she is going. It is a believable story that I bought into from the start. The characters are great, fun, caring and loving. I am really enjoying this series each one better than the last as I get to know each character better. All the ones you loved in the first books are back in this set, it was great to see them again, seeing how they have grown and the changes they have made. I can’t wait to see what the next story holds for me.

He said, she said.

Wonderful story. If I was reading it I could skim over all the uses of character “said” parts but because it an audio and the narrator reads the book verbatim it is hard to ignore. The author has a wonderful story but I wish the editor had caught the issues before publishing. After ever quote it states “Sarah said” or “Dean said” or “Marcus said”. Drove me crazy listening to conversations. Why not use “he replied” or “she asked” or “he suggested” to very it up a little.

Any additional comments?

This is a collection of three sweet and mostly clean Western romances. I enjoyed listening to the tales of the three O'Conner sisters and their adventures in meeting the three Samuels brothers. These audiobooks may not present great literature, but they certainly leave you feeling good after listening to them. They were the perfect things to listen to while out walking.

The three sisters are all headstrong in their own way. Tessa starts things off by heading west as a mail order bride. Maddie follows later in an attempt to overcome a horrendous attack by a family friend. Claire, the smartest of the three, joins her sisters after finishing college and discovering that women are not welcome in the world of business. The three brothers are strong, reliable, honest, and loyal. Dean, the oldest, runs the ranch. Seth deals with moving cattle along the trail. Marcus is the smart brother. He spends much of his time reading and writing, as well as helping out around the ranch. But he’s the one who holds the biggest secret, and the revelation of that secret just might destroy his connection to his family.

There is some violence in these books. There are instances of sexual assault and of rape, and some fighting between men. None of those are dealt with in much detail, mostly glossed over, as our the references to marital relations. There are also a few instances where anachronistic words are used, ones that wouldn’t have existed in the historical time in which the books take place, but those are few and far between.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The writing is good, and the stories are involved enough to hold interest and keep you guessing what these families are going to wind up doing next. The narration is spot on and keeps you involved and believing that you are listening to something happening in the days of cowboys and Indians. I look forward to listening to the three books that follow.

I received this box set as a gift from the narrator. His generosity had no impact upon my thoughts about these books or on my opinions as expressed in this review. I do thank him and the author for sharing these books with me.

Three Brides for Three Brothers

Follow the three brothers: Marcus, Dean and Seth as they live their lives on a Montana ranch. The story was well written but a little predictable. Dean sends away for a Mail Order Bride whom he's been corresponding with. He soon falls in love with her. They journey through their lives with minimal controversy. Book 1 is the love story about Dean and Tessa. In book two, we follow Seth and Maddie through their trials and tribulations. Book three is focused on Marcus and Claire. Overall, enjoyable and engaging.

J Scott Bennett has a great and soothing voice. He's clear, articulate and easy to listen to. I only encountered a couple of issues. The women's voices in these stories are off. I could easily visualize these women as old maids trying to find love. However, the women are described as much younger in the writing. Also, the father is described several times as Irish. Yet, the narrator's voice came across as an attempt at a British accent. Overall though, he's an excellent narrator and I really enjoyed his performance in general.

Enjoyable start to a wonderful historical series

I have really enjoyed listening to this series. While each book is a standalone story, there is a certain pleasure in reading the books in order. Each additional story includes characters mentioned previously, allowing you to revisit with them and find out how their lives have progressed. These three books are the first three in the series focusing on the three Samuels brothers and the three O'Connor sisters. It touches softly upon some of the very real challenges faced by people living in Pennsylvania and Montana at the time including education and work for women, illness, death, childbirth, ranch life, and so on. If you enjoy historical western romances, this is your cup of tea.
