Three runaway brides
Determined to escape their fates
Flee West to find freedom that can only be had
in a cowboy's arms...
Alexandra Brighton has spent the last five years in Boston, with all evidence of the wild frontier girl she used to be erased. Before she settles down, she's determined to visit her childhood home. When she finds herself far from her destination, she has no choice but to have the rugged Malcolm Kincaid escort her to Montana.
Now that Malcolm finally has the name and location of the man who killed his brother, he has no interest in protecting a pampered Eastern lady. But something about her tells him he just can't leave her behind. And by the time they reach Montana, Malcolm must decide if seeing justice done for past wrongs is worth losing a future with a woman he never expected to need.
This is definitely a book for all those out there who like their heroines tough and capable. Alexandra Brighton, a socialite from Boston...well, okay, let's go meet Alex, the former frontier girl who rediscovers the life that she loved and who may even find someone to love along the way. Right, we don't talk about her fiancé, this perfect specimen of a member of Boston's high society but rather about the rough and tough guy that she meets out there in the wilderness, the bounty hunter who never expected to end up as an escort to a young lady from society but, yeah, life has a strange humor. Or maybe fate had a hand in there as well because this might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to both of them. At least - if they survive.
I loved reading this story, that kept me entertained and just hoping for the HEA for both of them. Their trip was rough but you can feel how they grow together, how their mutual attraction turns into something...more...and when they finally arrive? Yup, that was something else.
This is not the first book by Amy Sandas that I've read and it won't be the last because I really enjoyed reading her books. The characters are interesting and strong and the story had many twists and turns that kept me glued to my reader.
