This is the first book that I've read by Sharon Ihle and I really liked her writting style, I loved Lacey (h) and the whole fish out of water theme. Being raised in a hospital for the mentaly insaine she was completely out of her element on a ranch. There was some great LOL moments in the barn when Lacey was trying to comeplete some chores. Hawke (H) was also a very likeable character. He had so much patience with Lacey that it was a nice change from the books that I have been He didn't send for a mail-order bride, his neighbor did and ordered one for him too without his knowing so he kinda got stuck with her. He has a pretty big chip on his shoulder about being a "half breed", something that experience has given him, yet he treats this 'white women' with respect and understanding. The only reason I gave this book 4* instead of 5 was because it didn't transver over to Kindle well at all. I have heard other people talk about this problem but it's the first time that I've ran into it. Words that should have read ...realized but were real-ized, it was like this so often and all through the book that it just pulled me out of the story. Also the blurb about Sharon Ihle's life came on the page before the epilogue. I hope I don't run into too many books like this on my Kindle.
