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. :(

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?

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
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

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

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
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
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

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

Tiffany Warren does not want to marry solely for the purpose of ending a long-standing feud between her family and the neighboring Callahans. Raised by her mother in New York, far away from the wilds of Wyoming, she has little desire to travel across country to meet a father she does not know or a fiancé she does not want. 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
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.

One Heart To Win was a funny romance to read. The feud between the Warren's and the Callahan's was very misguided by both sides. No one really knows the whole story but were willing to end this feud through a marriage agreed to 15 years ago. Tiffany Warren has no plans to marry the enemy's eldest son Hunter Callahan. Not willing to meet or forgive her father, Tiffany pretends to be Jennifer Fleming her families new housekeeper. When things take on a life of their own, Tiffany must find a way to ...more

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
This was not the read I remember a Lindsey book being but it's been years since I've read one. I had no problem putting this down and several times stopped mid chapter. I liked the characters but I found some of the side characters more interesting. Hunter Callahan was funny and nice but it was the hired gun, Degan Grant that I wished was the lead in this book. He was dark, dangerous and mysterious. Much more interesting. I want to read HIS story.
I gave it three stars but just barely. Disappoin

Tiffany has recently turned eighteen, and her mother informs her that she has a fiancee, and that she will be going to Montana, to meet him, and marry him so that the rivalry between the Warren's and the Callahans stop and there can be a peace between the families. The last thing that Tiffany wants is to marry a stranger, but she promised her mother she would give it two months. There is also another reason she doesn't want to go out west, meeting her father. She has never met him or seen him be ...more

One Heart to Win is Johanna Lindsey's 50th book! An amazing accomplishment to be sure. For this latest chapter in her amazing career Ms. Lindsey steps away from the Mallorys and into the Wild West.

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 have read all of Johanna Lindsey's books and loved them all especially the Mallory series. I loved her other Western book also. She did a great job with this story. Tiffany took matters into her own hands when the opportunity presented itself. She learned about the family she was to marry into without them knowing who she was. Hunter the hero was just that a great hero. Fun and light hearted but fierce and capable of protecting those he loved at the same time.

Loved all the brothers. Even Dega
4.5 rating. How hard would you fight to make sure you got what you wanted? Funny how when you try so hard to prove what you want is for the best then destiny just has so much fun showing you what's really a better option for you. Pulling of a charade and getting caught by the one person you are trying to avoid is a bit embarrassing, yet finding out it's not what you think hurts more. Can she admit she loves the one man she is so determined to avoid, yet still fighting to go home? Loved the antic ...more
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
Sebenarnya ini 4.5 bintang.
Dan aku merasa bingung dengan apa yang kurasakan setelah membaca buku ini. Aku memiliki pandangan positif, dan pandangan negatif yang ku-positif-positif-kan. Kalau kau mengerti.
Oh, dan sinopsis yang ada di cover belakang itu menyesatkan deh. Yang benar adalah Hunter Callahan, bukan Hunter Warren. Kalau Warren artinya satu keluarga dengan Tiffany dong.
Well awalnya aku agak ragu-ragu takut novel ini merupakan kontemporer romance, mengingat New York, tapi untungnya bukan.

I usually love Johanna Lindsey novels. This is the first one I have actually not enjoyed which is really sad. It is the first of her wild west historical romances (versus sci-fi or regency), but that was not the issue (though I am sad I didn't enjoy the novel being the first one of this genre). Here are the issues I had with this novel:

1). Where is the romance? Usually Lindsey books are quite steamy and so I picked this one up hoping for some spice. There was some flirting and that was about it
