Excellent book with a complicated storyline and some wonderfully portrayed characters. Seth was tricked into marriage and left his wife immediately after the wedding five years earlier. He has been attempting to get her to sign divorce papers ever since. He is then surprised to receive a telegram telling him that she is on her way to Ft. Sill to see him. He's even more surprised when he sees her, because the woman he's looking at isn't his wife, but her younger sister. Though he tells her he kno...more
Es uno de los libros más “tontos” que he leído últimamente. La mitad del libro me la he pasado preguntándome porqué piensan lo que piensan los personajes (porque piensan un montón, dialogo interior, repetitivo y cansino hay para aburrir, lo que no quiere decir que te enteres de algo…por lo menos de ella, lo de ella no tiene nombre, así es imposible que te guste un personaje, manipuladora, mentirosa y sin saber muy bien porqué…) y la otra mitad me la he pasado diciendo “Venga ya! No me lo puedo c...more
I really liked this story of the look alike sisters who could be told apart by their attitude. When Seth is forced into marrying Rosemary, his reward is promotion to Major with a promise of a divorce in a year, a small price to pay when the General's daughter accuses him of inappropriate behavior. For years he's been trying to get that promised divorce but Rosemary won't sign the papers, and her father is dead, so he can't undo what he caused to happen. Then out of the blue she arrived at his po...more
3.5 stars, actually. A very solid and satisfying western romance. Although the couple's motivation began in deceit, it didn't stop them from eventually showing how much they loved each other through a good part of the tale. I enjoy romances involving fort life as an ancestor of mine was also an officer (in NM) in the 1860s. I've always been drawn to this particular period and this story didn't disappoint. A recommended read.

"With realism and romance, Robinson brings the atmosphere of fort life to western fans. This story will strike a chord with readers who enjoy the twists that take place within a love triangle and the complex dynamics between siblings." RT Book Reviews
