Ashley Ludwig wove a great adventure tale of the rough west of the past in this book. Her characters, the practical RuthAnne Newcomb and the rough Captain Bowen Shepherd, are likeable and interesting. She does a great job of describing life in an army camp and the role of a washer woman in the army. I enjoyed joining Bowen and RuthAnne on their adventures to uncover the identity of the bandit intent on killing RuthAnne.

All or Nothing is an adventure that is sure to please any romantic! I got so caught up in the story and characters. The book was lighthearted and fun--a true pleasure to read. I'm looking forward to much more by Ashley Ludwig!

Sweet love story, exciting adventure in the old west with calvary soldiers, Indian wars, and a very bad villain.

Loved it!

Ms. Ludwig’s story takes place in the old west of 1876 in Arizona. Her portrayal of the developing romance between RuthAnne, a beautiful widow, and Bowen, an army captain, is tastefully done, remaining sweet. Her descriptions of the landscape, clothing, and every aspect of life in those times is so striking and vivid. You’re placed right there amidst the scorching heat of the Arizona sun and desert. The dangerous bandit El Tejano and other characters are brought to life as RuthAnne and Bowen fin ...more

Very nice piece of historical fiction, set in romance within this novel. Detail and plot are quite believable, and the book really brought the area I grew up in to life in it's historic state. That said, the author will likely end her friendship with me because my review makes no sense. All I can say is I enjoyed the read.
Jacqueline Harts
I'm throughly enjoying this book. I'm feeling for RuthAnne. I can't wait to turn each page and get closer to who the mysterious bandit is and if he gets to RuthAnne and her sister again.
