Recommended to Shelley by: Harlequin, it seems.
I woke up one morning to see that Harlequin had mailed me free books, in the hopes that I'd answer some questions about them. I may not read Christian fic often, but I totally will for free.

I really, really enjoyed, it, too. Lousy title (which they heard a lot about), but strong characters, solid writing and a really interesting story, low on cliches. Possibly my favorite romance I've read this year, even. The characters' religious convictions were woven in subtly and were part of them and the
The Bounty Hunter's Bride by Victoria Bylin
Daniela Baxter has left Wisconsin and come to Castle Rock, Colorado to marry Patrick Morgan and become a mother for his three young girls, Emma, Ellie and Esther. She arrives to be greeted by a scruffy dirty man who tells her Patrick is dead. She still wants to be a mother to the girls but it seems this scruffy man is Beau Morgan, Patrick's older brother. He is the one named in the will as the girls guardian. The girls instantly take to Dani and she lov
Leaving the Christian angle out of it, this book was so simplistic in style as compared to other Harlequins I read where the prose did NOT insult my intelligence. All throughout, I had to wonder if Bylin is a genuine Christian and such a simple style is common in this sub-subgenre, or if this book was written by someone figuring it's what Christians like to read. It had a phony, pablum feel to it, as if it was calculatedly written to appeal to what some focus group decided Christians like. A puz ...more
Well. I was expecting this story to go a little differently than the way it actually did. I was thinking Beau would propose to Dani and they'd get married and then she'd fall in love with him and it would be one big happy-throw-up ending. Like I was in the mood for. Nope. I'm not saying it went badly, but I'm feeling a little mis-led at the order of things in the synopsis.
Anyhoozer, Victoria Bylin's nice little tale about how Beau and Dani come to love one another was...a little on the dull sid
Daniela (Dani) Baxter arrives in Colorado, intending to marry Patrick Morgan, the dairy farmer with whom she's been corresponding. However, upon arriving she learns that Patrick has been killed by a lightning strike and has left behind three young daughters. Dani has letters showing that Patrick wants her to care for them, but they're currently living with Patrick's brother, a sheriff turned bounty hunter named Beau, who's not big on social graces.

Dani and Beau don't meet cute and live happily e
This book surprised me. I got it from the library and didn't like the cover very much. My first impression was that it would be a hokey romance story. Well, as a friend said to me, "You can't judge a book by it's cover," I was definitely wrong. I liked the story very much. The plot worked out a bit differently from what I'm used to in these historical romances and I liked it. I don't want to give away the ending so I won't say any more than that. I thought it was very well written. The conversat ...more
After Of Men and Angels, I knew this author wouldn't disappoint me.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dani and Beau's story. The author took a few turns that surprised me, and as a writer that's always a plus. I like it when the story heads a direction I didn't expect.

Victoria writes about children well, a skill in itself. I felt as though I knew the secondary characters, too, especially Josh and Adie.

I liked that the tale was a little gritty, because the details made the setting and characters realistic i
This was a good book for it not only being a historical romance but also a christian romance. VB had to have spent countless hours on her research and it shows in the book. There was no feeling of being apart from what the leads were doing and it felt like a natural flow. I enjoyed this book and do reconmend it.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The one thing that I absolutely loved was it wasn't the normal romance story. So many romance stories you read today are the same story, just different settings, people and time periods. This was different. I loved it! :)

A roamnce with a terrific hero. I thought I could smell the stink coming off hero Beau Morgan when he came off the range into town badly in need of a bath.
See Cheryl St John's comment. I feel same way as she said it. It is wonderful story.
Very good Christian novel about the power of forgiveness.
