Entretenido
Una protagonistas con carácter y un vaquero encantador.
No tengo queja, buen estilo y personajes bien construidos, pero he pasado las páginas sin ninguna emoción.
La historia, desde el principio, me ha parecido totalmente increíble. Pero se deja leer y entretiene.
De todas formas, una historis muy muy olvidable

3 stars!

This was an okay read for me. It wasn't bad but it didn't blew me away. But I did like both the MCs. The only problem for me was that the plot was over extended and there were times when the secondary characters overshadowed the MCs. There were subplots that went nowhere and then suddenly, it appeared again near the end and then got wrapped up so quickly. And yeah, no epilogue too, which was a total bummer. :(

Really really like this story!!!

It's been a very long time since my #1 all time favorite historical romance writer has done a western. And even though that's not my favorite historical genre, I will follow Johanna Lindsey anywhere she wants to go. And I'm happy to report that I enjoyed this story so much...much more than I anticipated.

Her writing and her formula is so familiar to me that every time I read one of her books, it feels like coming home. It comforts me like a favorite blanket. It wa

Two feuding families form a truce based on the future marriage of Tiffany and Hunter. But no one considers that a well-born New York City lady in the 1880s might not want to marry a Montana cowboy, or that the cowboy in question would never consider some fancy lady to be his bride. Will this fifty year feud continue if this couple refuses to accept one another?

The Callahans and the Warrens

it's unfortunate but i really think Johanna Lindsey has lost that special something that made her one of my favourite authors years ago. i generally don't read historical romances but i've always made exceptions for Johanna Lindsey and Judith Mcnaught since i started reading their books in high school. Johanna Lindsey's older books were always really exciting and passionate and un-put-down-able. her past few books have been lukewarm for me. i was hoping that with this being her 50th novel she wo ...more

Where is the Johanna Lindsey writing that i remember?!
It's as if she has lost her touch, or, i suspect, her motivation to really pen whirlwind romances for which she is known for. Maybe she's now lifting her quill only as a hobby to pass her time and nothing more.

It is sad and heartbreaking for me to see my favourite author lose her magic. The writing was flat in this book, that evoked not a fraction of emotion in me. It would have helped if Hunter's point of view was also given but except for

Una historia amena, sencilla, sin grandes pretensiones. La verdad es que he echado de menos algo más de emoción. A veces me descubría esperando que pasara algo que le diera un poco de ritmo. Lo cierto es que no destaca nada de la historia, ni siquiera la relación entre ellos dos.

Aunque había elementos para darle cierta emoción, el secreto de su madre, la explotación minera y el engaño de ella, se queda en nada y se resuelve muy rápidamente.

It has been awhile since I've read a Johanna Lindsey book. She's another author who has been the victim of the lack of bookstores in my area. I used to visit my bookstore weekly and would pick up her new books whenever they came out. Now I have to get lucky seeing them as they come into my library which is a shame because One Heart to Win reminded me of how much I enjoy her books.

While not as good as Lindsey's Malory series I still enjoyed it and it showed some promise of being an enjoyable seri

Good book though not as good as her older books, especially the Malory series. Tiffany has been living in New York City with her mom for the last fifteen years. She knows she's engaged to Hunter, but she has no interest in going to the wilderness and marrying a cowboy. Mom tells her she needs to go out there and spend at least two months getting to know the man before she decides. When she arrives she takes advantage of a mistaken identity to become the housekeeper at the Callahan ranch. This gi ...more

Una historia amena que recomiendo a las que os gusten las novelas románticas ambientadas en el oeste americano. Una protagonista impulsiva, fuerte y decidida, y un vaquero simpático, calavera y sin el machismo característico del que suelen hacer gala este tipo de protagonistas masculinos. Ambos nos atrapan en su relación que tiene más de lenta seducción que de sexo, como suele ser en las novelas de J. Lindsey. La trama de la rivalidad entre las dos familias parece trivial durante media novela, s ...more

Due to a lifelong feud between rival families in Montana, Tiffany Warren is betrothed at an early age to the son of their enemy, Hunter Callahan. Of course, Tiffany was raised in New York society and is way to hoity-toity to ever live in lawless, uncivilized Montana. However since she promised her mother she would at least visit Montana and get to know Hunter, Tiffany makes the trip west but enroute she decides to stay with the Callahan's instead of her family, in order to find out Hunter's true ...more

No es de los mejores que he leído, pero tampoco los peores de esta autora. La verdad es que con esta autora siempre voy con un poco de miedo, porque hay libros que me encantan y otros que me dejan fría. En esta ocasión, es una historia que me ha gustado mucho. Tiene una buena trama, muy buena ambientación y hay una rivalidad familiar un poco a lo Romeo y Julieta. Hunter es un personaje muy bueno, desde el primer momento le quieres y a medida que avanza la historia le tienes más y más cariño. Ell ...more

Tiffany Warren has been separated from her father (and brothers) since she was a very small child, living with her mother in New York. Now she is eighteen and time for her to travel to Montana and marry Hunter Callahan. The Warrens and the Callahans have been enemies for about fifty years and it is hopeful that the wedding will put an end to the feud. So once she is there, she is mistaken for the housekeeper, Jennifer Fleming, that was coming to work for Tiffany's father, Frank Warren. The Calla ...more

My initial impression of this book is hard to gauge. I have long been a fan of Johanna Lindsey, this is her 50th book and I would wager that I have read half of them. Many at a time when my reading was so prolific and generally focused on Romance, you know, those young fanciful years when a girl genuinely believes that wild cowboys can be tamed, where the most heartless of rogues could learn that there is one spell binding woman who could fill their empty aching lives. I was once that girl. I ha ...more

The problem I have with this book is that I am more interested in the side character Degan Grant rather than the main hero Hunter. Degan doesn't really have much screen time but he has the making of my 'would be' favorite heroes: Dangerous air, Dark and Mysterious... There seems to be more to him than meet the eyes and I kind of wished that he was Hunter instead ;p

Another thing I didn't like with this novel was how Tiffany treated her father. It was obviously her mother's doing that pre

este libro ha sido un "sí, pero no".
ha sido una historia entretenida, y simpática en algunas ocasiones, pero todos los problemas (y, sobre todo, el "drama" por el que los padres de la protagonista estuvieron separados)me han resultado flojas (como poco).
no ha sido una mala historia, pero tratándose de una novela escrita por una autora de renombre, esperaba mucho más.

I THOUGHT I'd done a review for this, but apparently goodreads didn't save it. This one will be significantly less detailed because, quite frankly, this book just wasn't good enough to review twice. (It wasn't bad, it just wasn't on either side of the spectrum enough to warrant the surfeit of emotions required for two reviews.)

I think Johanna Lindsey has lost her "It". At the very least, I'd rather re-read an early Malory novel (with the exception of "The Magic of You" which is probably the only

Tiffany Warren has grown up living the posh life of a New Yorker. She has never been to the west but in order to fulfill her mother’s promise, Tiffany must travel to the dusty west to meet her fiancé Hunter Callahan. This isn’t your usual betrothal, not only have Tiffany and Hunter never met; their marriage was arranged to end a feud that spans several generations. The idea is to unite the two families by blood in order to stop all the fight

When an opportunity to pose as a housekeeper to the Callahans pops up, Tiffany jumps at the chance to see the raw truth of the family she is supposed to join. Hunter Callahan ...more

The story was actually pretty good, I wanted to keep reading. But I could not stand the heroine,Tiffany, especially in the beginning. She wasn't evil, but sounded too bratty and snobby. I've read soo many books about prim and proper heroines from even older time periods than this, but I've never come across one that talked too much about how everything wasn't proper. Because of this, when she goes to become a housekeeper for the Callahans, the sudden transformation didn't make sense. Her moth

I just finished this book and I still don't know what to think of it. The word stalled kept coming to mind. I love Johanna Lindsey's writing and she is the only author that I automatically preorder. It doesn't matter what, I have to have her next book. Saying that, I still don't know what to think of this book. It is a smooth reading. Always constant but the pace doesn't pick up. The reason of why her parents were separate is ridiculous to say the least. It is like JL is grasping. But she had to ...more

To be honest, this book didn't seem like one of Johanna Lindsey's older books. You won't see any of Lindsey's writing style here. I actually wondered if this was a ghost writer because it just doesn't have the same flow to it that her older books have. The plot was somewhat creative but the flow was completely flat. I read the book and had almost no reaction whatsoever to it except to say, "That was it?"
The storyline is about the heroine, a society born lady who has never had to work in her l

Really loved this book. The author took her time letting the main characters fall slowly in love. Too often the scenes are rushed in other novels so we do not fully appreciate the courtship. In this book it was totally believable. The side stories surrounding Rose and the miners was a little underwhelming but I'm glad they had abrupt resolutions so I could keep my focus on Hunter and Tiffany. I expected more development with regard to Anna but again that doesn't bother me very much. All in all a ...more

Un libro entretenido y que me ha gustado, divertido aunque no muy profundo, pero lo suficiente cómo para enganchar al lector. Me gustaría poder leer los libros de la serie, porque hay personajes muy interesantes, como Degan, muy misterioso y del que poco se sabe pero con mucha presencia y en conjunto creo que es una interesante historia con una buena trama de fondo, poco común y con sus pequeños misterios.Lo que vi un poco más flojo es el romance, divertido pero no muy serio, no muy trabajado.

I enjoyed this book but I can see why some have been upset. I listened to this one on audible, so I found it and the narr voice brought me into it. It felt like Johanna Lindsey book but after reading all the smut I have, the one sex scene wasn't up to par. That wasn't enough to take my pleasure of my yearly JL read.
