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

Great read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

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.

This book is much more than you'd expect from a romance novel. I loved that there were multiple storylines for Seth and Millie to work through, but the length did make certain points very tedious. As the main characters, Seth and Millie are well fleshed out, but the downfall is Rosemary; she reads like a cartoonish villain.
Pamela Fernandes
Seth and Millie are an unusual couple. Millie comes to fill in for her sister as his wife, whose blackmailing her using their mother's suicide. Seth starts off as a very strong character, but later acquiesces to Millie even after he knows she's lying. The emotional blackmail could have been played up for a bit. Stars to the author for the research on Natives.

"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

I am such a sucker for historical romance novels and this one does not disappoint. I love the setting in the old west, with the unexplored territories and always the threat of the natives. This book was a great read and I know I will be visiting it again.
