Publisher's Summary

Jamie Collins doesn't have much to live for in Walhalla, North Dakota. Her husband passed away two years ago and she has been working as a housekeeper on a ranch. Jamie's employers are difficult people to work for and she dreams of getting away from them. She has a history with men and is ostracized by many of the townspeople. Jamie wants a better life but has no way to make that happen.

Jamie comes across an ad in The Walhalla Press for mail-order-brides. She jumps at the chance to find a good man and secure a happy future. Ever the realist, she knows that the chances of making a love-match are slim, but she'll settle for a good man who is a good provider. She finds an advertisement from a younger Montana ranch hand that catches her eye and she sets her sights on him. It should be easy to wrap him around her little finger.

Luke Samuels has had a rough couple of years. He's been jilted by the girl of his dreams and laid off from his employment with a local Dawson County, Montana ranch. His cousin Dean Samuels hires Luke on as a ranch hand. Luke sees how happy Dean and Tessa are together and wants that kind of happiness for himself. Even though he's painfully gun shy about the opposite sex, he's willing to take a chance to find a bride who's a sure thing. Leaving nothing to chance, he enlists the help of his cousin Marcus Samuels to help him write the perfect ad that will entice a willing female to come to Montana.

When they meet, Luke is bowled over by the beauty with the emerald green eyes and auburn hair, but is instantly tongue-tied. Jamie is not sure how they're going to develop a relationship when he can barely talk to her, but she sets out to seduce the handsome man with the soulful brown eyes and sweet smile. A game of cat and mouse ensues and Jamie finds out that marrying Luke is easy, but capturing his heart is going to be harder than she anticipates.

Fun, light, Mail Order Bride Stories

What did you love best about Montana Mail Order Bride Box Set, Books 4-6?

The characters are warm and inviting. I wanted to follow them to see what happened to them next, to learn which couple would be the next to find romance and family.

What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?

I thought he did a terrific job narrating this series of books.

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

It's far too long, it is a three book box set, running over nineteen hours -- to listen to in one sitting, but if it was manageable, I'd have enjoyed listening to it all at once.

Any additional comments?

These audio books present the listener with fun, light stories of young cowboys reaching out via newspaper ads to find a bride. The characters are warm and enjoyable; watching them interact provides a sense of contentment. I will say that there are many instances where I thought these books were more contemporary than historical, but I still found them compelling listens. I wanted to know what happened next. I still do! And there are more books to follow in this series, so I’m hoping to find them in an Audible sale sometime soon. While the author may not perfectly follow historic fact, she does make the stories entertaining and does an amazing job at connecting one book to the next. I look forward to learning how the next set of books is connected to these three and the three earlier ones.

The narrator, J. Scott Bennett, offers the perfect voices and delivery for this series of books, and I don’t say that just because he gave me this box set as a gift. He made it very easy to follow the story, even when I was doing other things while I listened. It was rare that I had to go back, as I often do in audio books, and re-listen to a section. I was surprised at how well he distinguished each female voice, and there are quite a few women characters, so that you could almost always know which woman was talking. His male voices are very good too, but I find the fact that he can do women’s voices with such panache is a sign of his talent. He gets an A+ from me for his work on this series.

For those to whom these are important matters in choosing a book, there is discussion of rape and instances of premarital sex. There are also some swear words used, but overall, this is a sweet, clean set of books that revolves around the Samuels family and their friends and neighbors.

If you enjoy light, historic, humorous books, these very well might be a hit with you.I received this audio book from the narrator as a gift. His generosity had no influence upon my stated opinions.

I thank him for sharing his talent, and that of Linda Bridey with me, and apologize for taking so long to get around to completing my listening. The delay had nothing to do with the quality of the books or their performance.

GREAT WOMEN HEROS

Love this series. Each of these women stood up for what their beliefs were. Good to see that Native Americans were treated with respect and their culture was trying to be understood. Even Dean finally tried to change his ways against the Native Americans. Good to see other people from the other books included since they live in the same town. Glad to see issues like Joe being drug was handled immediately and not drug out. I was impressed with Lacy. She knew immediately what happened an took care of it that day.Thank you Linda for knowing we as your audience have brains and don't need complicated storylines to figure how to handle things. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Thrilling, exciting each better than the last

This boxset holds many hours of enjoyment that will make you smile, laugh, hold your breath and make your jaw drop. They are touching stories with true emotions that really touched my heart.

Westward Destiny
We met Luke before when his bride left him standing all alone broken hearted and not understanding what just happen. This is his story and his race to find his happy ever after with one foot in his mouth and the other high tailing it to get his women back after a few misunderstandings. Both Luke and Jamie are broken souls both wanting a family and someone they can call their own. Jamie is a little on the wild side and not what you would call you normal lady but that is ok with Luke just not some other family members. Things are looking up that is until she meets his parents and as we all know mother-in-laws can be a hard pill to swallow. Things start going downhill as Luke finds his self in one mess after another.

Jamie isn’t well liked at all, women are jealous of her for many reason. She isn’t looking for a love match she had a wonderful marriage she just wants someone who will take care of her, give her a family and be her friend but most of all to take her like she is. Luke is ready to try again but this time he isn’t looking for love he just wants a partner someone to have a family with. Both got more than they asked for and gave us the reader lots of laughs as well as a little sorrow.


Westward Fortune
The author covers a lot of issues from abuse, as well as two old men who are very unhappy and take it out on those they should love, starting over, learning what love is and what the important things in life are. Lacey needs to get out of town and away from her abusive father, when an ad come in the paper knowing she can be close to her friend she jumps at the chance. Joe wants out from under his hateful father’s hands, but he needs to be able to buy him out. To do that he must get married to get the money left to him by his mother. This is where the story gets very interesting from jealousy to broken hearts as danger comes near a lot is lost in a few minutes which will change the lives of so many.

Lacey’s story is so sad my heart really went out to her, the one thing I wish we would have seen was how her father took her leaving once he found out she was gone. Maybe we will see that in future books. Everything is going so well for them until something happens that leaves their future in turmoil. I felt the pain and sorrow but felt Lacey may have over reacted a little, I did understand why she was upset but felt she might have been thinking more of herself and putting her feelings first. Joe is something else with his sweet-talking ways that gets him into a little trouble and makes it hard to outlive his reputation. He has some back paddling to do to win the love of the woman he can’t live without. He is smooth, a gentleman, a charmer, and has a wick sense of humor.
Westward Justice
Sammie is a different kind of women she truly stands alone, strong, demanding, she is out to prove she is as good as any man. When Deputy Taylor posts the ad for a woman whose strong, independent women Sammie jumps right in. Once she hits town she shakes it up long with Deputy Taylor. This was a very exciting, thrilling and adventures read that grabs your attention giving the read lots of smiles, laughs and a few drop jaw moments. I totally loved it. Very well written and thrilling I couldn’t put it down.

Overall:
I thought these stories were well written, the author gives you both sides making you feel both their pains as well as the turmoil that goes with it. They are very entertaining and holds your attention. There is a little bit of everything from romance, broken hearts and danger. You get to see the past characters they play a big role though-out each story. It was so nice to see them and see the changes they have made. I can’t wait to read more of this series. The author fills it with pain and sorrow but with humor. Even my husband who hates listening to audios laughed a few times as we were painting the house.

The narrator does a wonderful job delivering true emotions to the story, you always know who is talking and just what that are feeling. There are no repeating of words, no background noise just a truly enjoyable listen that pulls you in. His normal voice is very pleasant as well as his character voices, his voice is easy to listen to and gave me many hours of enjoyment. He made me feel the pain and sorrow each character is going through as well as the excitement and danger that comes with this story. With his narration he made me understand why some people act the way they do and that not everything is as it seems. For me he bought this story to life making it easy to picture each scene as it was happening. His performance was top of the line pulling me in giving me a listen I couldn’t put down. If you haven’t listened to any of his audios you don’t know what you are missing.

Author and Narrator make a great team.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, these books and fun to listen too and each one in the series is different from the previous.

What did you like best about this story?

I like Lacey and Joe Dwyer's story best. He only wanted a bride in name only and he got so much more.

What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?

J. Scott Bennett brings his voice and a great performance to these books. I would highly recommend them.

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

I loved when Joe had to win Lacey back and he traveled back to her home town and purchased her beloved horse from her wretched father for her,

Any additional comments?

Fun, Clean, HEA Western Romances!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed all three of these western romances! The narrator had nice accents for his characters and an engaging reading style for a western setting.

Each of the stories was unique from the others, yet they shared the same characters from story to story. But each book showcased the relationship and marriage of one particular couple at a time. I loved how you get to know the characters and get to stay in their lives over the telling of three stories! You know how you often end a book and wish you could have spend more time with the characters. Well this way, you get to do just that!

Hearing these stories reminded me of watching old Gunsmoke reruns only these had more humor and fun and less blood and death.

For lighthearted fun and clean romance, I don't think you will find many audible stories that will surpass these. I recommend these audible listens by Linda Bridey!

Strong Handsome Cowboys Find Love in the West

Where does Montana Mail Order Bride Box Set, Books 4-6 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to the first box set of 3 in this series and other Mail Order Bride books.
This particular set of 6 is by far the best of all.

What did you like best about this story?

Since there are actually 3 stories in this box set I won't pick out one in particular but as a rule I really like how all of the characters are so real and honest. The author has a way of endearing the listener with each character's unique personality. The listener becomes on of the family and becomes totally involved in their lives. I sure do wish there were more books in this series because I love this family !!

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

Scott uses the same voice for each book so in general I will say that the voice he uses for the lead female character is my favorite. The listener is treated to a happy and upbeat woman's voice that is also sultry and exciting.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wouldn't say my reaction was "extreme" but I will say that there were definitely a few twists and turns that caught me by surprise and made my heart smile in a giant way !

Any additional comments?

I was give these books by Scott Bennett in exchange for an honest review. I am so thankful for having this opportunity. Scott is my favorite male voice artist! He portrays each character with joy and integrity. Thanks again Scott !!

Enjoyable Historical Western Romance Series

I really enjoy listening to this series. I love how each story is stand alone but together they form the wonderful tapestry of a growing, developing community. The characters are, for the most part, strong yet flawed and, as such very interesting. Despite the stories being rather similar, as they are all historical western mail order brides, the details vary tremendously. The people are different in personailities and personal histories and their strengths and vulnerabilities are unique. It is hard not to become a little emotionally invested. I want to read or listen to the next book because I want this community to persevere and thrive.

If the Samuels (the first three books) are the backbone of these stories, these three books are about the corner blocks of a community, namely the mayor and the sheriff. These three books focus on three women who were the best of friends before they come to Dawson. The challenges of their youth solidify their friendship and make them uniquely appropriate to meet the ups and downs of Dawson with their prospective grooms.

As usual J. Scott Bennett has given a well matched performance.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
