This is a romance anthology featuring three stories about three men of the American West. The Lorraine Heath story is the only one I read, so my rating is solely based on that book.

The Reluctant Hero - Andrea Jackson used to write her dime novels for pleasure. Now she must write them to pay off her father's debt. But she has writers block and needs some inspiration. She finds that in Sheriff Matthew Knight who stopped a gang of outlaws from robbing the local bank. But when she asks for an interv

Three western romances set in 1893, 1862, and 1884 make up this anthology. "The Great Cowboy Race" by Gentry pits Comanche Jones against Henrietta Jennings in a 1000 mile horse race from Nebraska to Chicago for a $1500 prize. 'Henri' is desperate to prove herself to her father and Comanche wants to buy a little spread. These two challenge and trick each other along the way but develop respect and friendship as well as romance. "Moonlight Whispers" by Bodwell puts stranded and penniless Isabelle ...more
I liked the third story by Bodwell the best.
The Great Cowboy Race: 2 stars
Moonlight Whispers 2.5 stars
Reluctant Hero 3 stars
I'd probably have liked the stories more if the authors had the ability to develop the plots and characters more. However, this being an anthology, the stories were short and quick. Just not much substance. Those readers who like those short, quick and to the point stories will appreciate it more, I'm sure.
I don't usually read novellas, but these three stories are a good sampler of the still popular cowboy romance. I enjoyed the history of the Great Cowboy Race and the details of frontier life and cooking. One hero was less than bright, but the sheriff and the dime-novelist is a charmer of a story.
Easy read. Would have been nice to develop the stories more, but I understand because of the nature of the book. Overall - decent, light read.
Anthology with 3 short stories. Borrowed via Overdrive - Kindle book from my local library.

I love all of her books. If you are looking for an easy read, romance then she is great for you.
