Ride into the Rockies where love peaks between a tough Texas tomboy and a passionate artist. On her way to Montana, Sally McClellan’s party is attacked and robbed. But then artist Logan McKenzie saves the badly wounded cowgirl who has been left for dead. Can this landscape painter tame the tomboy without breaking her spirit? Sally doesn’t know much about ribbons and lace,...more
I was drawn to Logan as soon as his character was introduced. It was interesting ...more
Recommendation: Read it but not first!
I like Mary Connealy's writing. I really do but I had a hard time with this one. I have read all of the Montana Marriages series, as well as, the Lasso in Texas series. I feel that makes me a capable judge of this new series, Sophie's Daughters. We first meet Sophie's girls in "Petticoat Ranch" and again in "Calico Canyon." This book, the second in the series, mainly focuses on Sally with a good bit of Mandy's problems ...more
The story barrels out with an immediate cliffhanger-literally- as Sally dangles for her life. And as she tumbles into Logan’s life, neither will ever be the same.
I loved the interaction between characters. Their internal monologue filled with snarky quips and punctuated dialogue. The pace of the novel is quick and to the point. Both of Sally’s and Logan’s obsessions with their chosen p ...more

I hadn't read a book by her in what seemed like forever (about three months). So after such a long way, this book was excellent!
It had the wonderful humor, breathless romance, heart-stopping action, and strong (though not as profound as I'd prefer) faith. Not to mention the incredibly strong and swoon-worthy men that make you wish you could trade places with the heroine for, like, eternity.
I didn't cry but I definitely laughed.
It was great; I ...more

My problem with the book is the couple themselves. Sally is the tomboy of the family, the rough and tumble, take no prisoners cowgirl who prefers jeans to calico and guns to ribbons and lace. Logan, while physically he is handsome and extremely fit, is the CLASSIC beta ...more

They are well written, fun to read, with loveable characters...true romance novels without the blatantly obvious sex scenes or hackneyed use of metaphors for the male genitalia. Gotta love that! I have read nearly all of this author's books in the last few months while I've been snowed in (burrrrrr....is winter over yet?!) and it has been an awesome way to pass the time!
