Dessa wasn't the only person swept back in time through the pages of this incredible tale. With A Marshal of Her Own, Linda La Roque has hit my “automatic buy” list.

Ms. La Roque does a wonderful job of blending modern day strengths and sensibilities with nineteenth century history, setting, society and morals. She makes the past come alive in this novella. Modern day Dessa Wade is smart, strong, bright and beautiful. Her caring and cu

From the beginning of this story, we find that Dessa Wade is a strong willed character who is about to find out things aren't quite as they seem. Armed with ambition and a sassy attitude, Dessa finds herself in one very unexpected adventure. Enter the hunky, drop dead gorgeous Marshal Cole Jeffers, Cole cannot believe his eyes when Dessa appears out of nowhere. Instantly attracted to her, Cole finds himself questioning his bachelorhood.

The relationship between Cole and Dessa simply sizzled. The

This is the first story I have read of Ms. LaRoque's and it will not be the last. This was a very sweet, short romance which is the 2nd book in the series. As usual, I always wonder when I'm reading books out of order if I'm missing anything. Even though Charity is a supporting character in this story and I want to read her story, it did not detract in any way by not having read her story first.

One of the things I enjoy with a time-travel story is reading about how the characters adapt to their

I hadn’t read any of Miss LaRoque’s work before but was pleased to read this novella. It had a really good feel to it, a sweet romance that gently develops. Marshal Cole Jeffers would be charming man to meet if time travelled back to the 1890s, his thoughtfulness in juxtaposition to the toughness of his job-though the reader is never really shown anything of the real realities of his harsh justice. Dessa Wade is a spirited character, yet has times when the situations she encounters shows her ...more
