This was my thought throughout most of this book. I'm sorry, but most of it was just so stupid. And it felt lazy. It felt like the entire book was just sprinting toward the finish line. Even ignoring the instalove (which I can't), there was no character development. Things just happened instantaneously for Annalee.

One example was when when she meets Boone's adopted brother, Two Bears. She's so scared of meeting an Indian for the first time, who she thinks are scalping, bloodthirsty savages, tha

Wonderful short read!!!

I enjoyed this story of a fresh start. And starting over. I wish I had the courage Annalee has. To come to wild untamed land. I am a huge fan of Vonnie Davis. This author can write any genre. And give us a great story. I highly recommend this book 💖

This historical romance novella takes place in the late 1800’s in the Wyoming Territory. My emotions were engaged immediately since the book opens with Annalee, Boone, the Marshall of Cicero Creek, and Franklin and Cora Maguire in the middle of a stagecoach robbery. Annalee and Boone were spitting fire at each other from the start and it just kept getting better once they got to town. Their attracti

This is just the kind of book I like to read. I loved the setting for this story, the old west, the stage coaches, the small towns and ranches. I had no trouble putting myself right there. The descriptions were very vivid.
This story started out with a bang... literally! The bang of a gun on a stage coach. It was at that point that I fell in love with the feisty Annalee! She was a "take no crap" kind of gal and I lover her for it. I didn't feel it was overdone or too much at all. I felt her chara

I loved western romances and A Man for Annalee sounded like a great read from the beginning. There is romance, drama, and laughter all the way through this book. You can't go wrong when you combine some of my very favorite things in a book.

Annalee is a strong willed, feisty, independent woman who is fully capable of taking care of herself. I loved how Annalee handled so many situations in this book. This is a woman that you would want on your side if you were in trouble. She can kick butt and te

A beautiful, feisty heroine and a brave, handsome lawman...what's not to love?

This was a sweet, often humorous tale of romance and recovery in the old west. It was a shorter story, but a quick read and a fun escape.

What I liked about this book:

1. The writing was excellent. The old west is a tough time period to imagine, since none of us will ever experience it. Ms. Davis does a wonderful job keeping the reader in the moment. From the dialogue to the descriptions of environments, to the names of
A Man for Annalee started with a stagecoach robbery attempt and ended with a murder attempt with lots of love between Annalee Gallagher and Boone Hartwell or Smiling Wolf (his Cheyenne name). This is a delightful western with a spirited red-head that graduated from Miss Feather's Finishing School for Refined Ladies of Culture and Proper Decorum. The story is witty, fun and full of love and excitement, plus set in beautiful Cicero Creek, Wyoming. ...more

Average book. The story was kind of blah, nothing remarkable. Some funny parts, a bit of predictable mystery, but overall on the boring side. The heroine was too bitchy and mean while the hero was likable.

Too short. Not enough back story for the characters. Needs more interaction between characters. However the characters are very like able.
