 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
Her Wyoming Man is a book about second chances. Ella has a second chance to have a life of her own, a life of freedom where she doesn't have to live in a gilded cage, at the whim of another person. People might think being a wife doesn't provide safety and freedom. But to prostitutes and courtesans who are one step away from being slaves, it's a way out of a desperate, hopeless life. So Ella, and some of the girls from a house of pleasure in Dodge City, Kansas sneak out and answer an ad in Wyomi ...more
Ella is a high-class prostitute in Dodge City. When her 'gentleman caller' decides to leave the city, Ella and a few of the other prostitutes decide to answer an advert for mail-order brides in Wyoming hoping for an anonymous new start. Nathan Lantry, attorney and aspiring politician, believes the beautiful and accomplished Ella will make the perfect wife for him and mother to his three children. Unfortunately with so many former prostitutes trying to hide their pasts from their new husbands, se ...more
I’ve loved Ms. St. John since her very first book and gobble up her newest releases as soon as they come out and this one was no exception. Since Lorraine Heath left the Old West and departed to England, Cheryl St. John is my mind, THEE Western write who writes the most poignant stores

The heroine is a prostitute in the old west. She has run away from the brothel and agrees to be a mail order bride without informing her bridegroom Nathan Lantry of her past.

I get that this kind of heroine isn’t fo

I love romance novels and sometimes I hate to admit that, but its true. I'm also a sucker for the happy ending and happily ever after. There is enough unhappiness in the world that escaping into a good book with a happy ending is what I like to do to pass the time.

This book caught my attention right off and I read it all, only putting it down for dinner(my poor kids). The pacing was great and the story kept my attention. I liked the characters and the mess they got themselves mixed up in. I will

3.5/5; 4 stars; B+

I pretty much love every romance story I've read by this author. This one is no exception. Cheryl St. John always manages to give the reader insight into the turmoil and pain, hope, and joy that the characters experience. In this story Ella gets a second chance to be a wife and mother after being born into prostitution, and Nathan gets a second chance to have a happy marriage after being widowed.

Ella Reed grabs her first chance to escape the life of a courtesan and accepts a proposal from Nathan Lantry. Unfortunately Nathan has political aspirations. If Ella's secret comes out, he won't be able to run for office... and she'll lose the only home she's ever known. Ella's newfound friends insist she must decorate, unleashing a flurry of shopping and craft-making to bring Nathan's home up to the appropriate level of Victorian clutter.
The author does an excellent job showing the sexual tensi

A fine historical western read. I love second chance stories, and while I'm not too fond of romances with kids running around, there was just enough here. Ella comes to Wyoming with a bunch of other soiled doves, though Ella was an exclusive courtesan. Answering an ad in the paper for mail-order brides, these ladies pair up with the men in town while keeping their past secret. Ella hit the jackpot with widower Nathan Lantry. Handsome, tall, well-off and ambitious. And he is a loving f
I really enjoyed this book..A very well written Western Historical..

This was a very sweet romance.
This is a good book if you just want to read a quick and fluffy romance. There isn’t much substance to it, but it was still a cute story. I loved Ella as a heroine. She just had a really good heart and you couldn’t help but root for her and her second chance at life. Compared to Ella, I was more indifferent to Nathan, but I did like the dynamic between them. He seriously had me cracking up with how he dealt with his new marriage with Ella. He kept treating her like she was this delicate flower, ...more
(Disclaimer: I won this book for free in a giveaway on Doesn't mean I shall be even slightly less critical than I normally would.)

Her Wyoming Man is the story of Ella, who begins the story as a high-class hooker in Kansas City during the late 1800s (I think, I can't recall if any specific dates were ever given). After a change in circumstances, Ella and a few of the other women from the "house of pleasure" make a run for it, answering an ad from a city in rural Wyoming that needs
Because I work in a library, I think I always have to read something educational. But this week, I decided to pick up a romance (they're very popular at the library) and I'm glad I did. The book is sweet, easy to read, and paints a vivid picture in my imagination. It's like a day at the beach for the mind.
