A shivering cold angel...

Maura Reed was all alone in her Montana hotel, curled up in her robe and slippers, when the blizzard hit. It was cold, quiet, and lonely--until a rugged gunslinger blew in from the storm demanding shelter. Just for this night--this wild, stormy night--Maura wanted someone, someth...more

I found this to be astoundingly predictable. The "I'm never going to love anyone dark stranger" with the "oh woe is me, I got myself pregnant on the first try virgin" paired with a less than inspired plot really didn't move me at all. I've read this same storyline before, and done much better, by others. C-

One stormy winter night a stranger comes by and Maura is drawn by him. She give herself to 1 night of pleasure and wakes up alone. She dreams of running away and saves up money to do so but find herself pregnant. Quinn Lassiter is a gunslinger with reputation, he goes...more
A nice predictable pregnancy-forced marriage-turned-love story that had a really great heroine. The hero was predictable with his 'I wanna be free to roam' attitude and the small town side characters were predictable with their 'lets band together for the greater good' ethic... It's the heroine that had me stuck to this story though... She kept surprising me at every turn and I loved her spunky attitude and her quiet girly fantasies. She's one of those rare heroines that really understood the si...more
As some have mentioned, this book may be quite predictable, but how many romances aren't? I tend to read romance novels for the l sweetness, a bit of sizzle, happy endings, and "escape for reality" factors, and this book didn't disappoint. I enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters and the pace was nice with the plot constantly moving after the first chapter or so. It's a book I would recommend to anyone who enjoys typical historical western romances.
I've being yearning to read this specific book by Jill Gregory for quite a long time. The trouble I went through to find and download it was totally worth it. Gregory's writing style, setting and characters are bit similar to Maggie Osborne's style. That made the book a whole lot better. Started reading the book at 1a.m and I simply couldn't rest my eyes until I was done with it. Until the last word was read. The current time is 3.53 A.M and I go to sleep, a happy and contended reader.

Believe it or not I've read this book twice. It must be the whole dark stranger bit. Typical romance with the broken down heroine and the big bad hero. The domineering heroes are a guilty pleasure of mine and this book fit the bill. Worth checking out of the library.

Super cute read, Jill Gregory never fails to deliver! Girl meets boy, boy seduces girl, girl gets pregnant and has to track said boy down... You know a classic! Would recommend 4 1/2 stars
AMAZING love story. Now I'm going to have to read all of Jill Gregory's books.
Missy anything by Jill Gregory.
