I just love a good western historical romance! Childhood memories of watching John Wayne films, spaghetti westerns starring Clint Eastwood, not to mention episodes of Zorro, inspire my imagination. My mind conjures up hard working and often god fearing folk living in small isolated communities, farming a barren landscape upon which cattle roam, juxtaposed to violent gunslingers, seedy saloon bars, Indian attacks and land disputes to mention some of the popular themes. This book, by Patricia Pott ...more
I didn't get very far into this one before realizing I just wasn't into it and didn't care what happened. School marm heroine who takes in strays and orphans is sitting on land that two powerful men are feuding over. Villain hires hero to drive her off land, naturally leaving out the important bits - like, oh she's a saint and there are kids in the house. The hero has some interesting baggage, but I couldn't quite figure out why he just didn't tell the villain to go to Hell and ride off into the ...more

Loved it....Pollyannish h and all. What can I say, I loved the book and movie of "Shane" as a kid and still do. This reminded me of a romance version of "Shane" :) and added bonus I got it as a kindle freebie on Amazon. Win, win, win. ...more

Family is what you make it! Love covers all.

Author, Patricia Potter, hit another home run with this story! It was a beautiful story about School teacher Willow G.Taylor who lost her father and has no other family. She goes out west to Colorado to teach. She makes a family with orphans and those on the fringe of society. She is deeded a ranch from a man whom she taught to read and lands in between two feuding ranchers. One rancher hires a gunslinger to scare her off her land because she lets the

This great story, by Patricia Potter, grabbed me from the first page! It wouldn't let go until I finished the book.

A white Apache gunslinger (Lobo) has been hired by a very wealthy landowner (Alex Newton). The goal is to frighten the local schoolmarm into selling her land and water rights. Just how hard can that be?

When Lobo goes to scope out the situation, he realizes that Alex Newton has lied and left critical facts out of the discussion. Willow Taylor, the teacher, is not some airhead floozy

Love this story. Have read it twice now. He is a notorious cold hearted gunslinger and she is a strong willed and determined school teacher who runs a ranch with a few other outcasts she calls family. He was originally sent to scare her into selling her ranch but at the end he helps her fight against those that wish her and her family harm. A range war ensues and he is nearly killed while trying to save the life of a little girl that has grown to love him. At the end the town helps them both set ...more

This book is pretty stereotypical, but sometimes those work just right and for me this makes a good comfort read. I've read it a few times now and when I read the last page, I'm left with a nice mellow feel. ...more
