When Katrine Brinkerhoff's cabin is attacked, only sheriff Clint Thornton's heroism saves her. She owes Clint her life—and her help catching the men responsible.

Lawman's Oklahoma Sweetheart is a good read. The violence is believable for those who study the history of Oklahoma Territory, however, the story is predictable. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book and will read more books by Allie Pleiter.
I probably would have given this three stars, but the epilogue was so predictable, I wanted to gag!

My two favorite people have found their happy ever after! Every page was full of action and surprises. I am very sad to say goodbye to Brave Rock, but I know I will visit there again.

Are you like me, one who loves to sit down to read a good book that has a lot of action, adventure, perhaps even a smidgen of romance? I love reading a lot from writers who share their stories and help audiences everywhere to get lost in the pages of book as taking a break from reality for just awhile can be like a fresh breeze. Here is tale set in the late 1800s in Ok

If you look at my reviews, it’s no secret that I’ve read several of ALLIE PLEITER’s books. And yes, I have a few of my favorites. And yes, I prefer her historical over her contemporary. I have yet to read an author who has the ability to change her voice with each genre she writes, the way MS PLEITER, can.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was when I spotted the upcoming cover for THE LAWMAN’S OKLAHOMA SWEETHEART (LOVE INSPIRE HISTORICAL/BRIDEGROOM BROTHERS) by ALLIE PLEITER. My heart sta

During the Oklahoma Land Rush in the late 1800's, people can from all over the country hoping to grab a slice of land and begin to live the American dream. Folks would do just about anything and head in any direction to gain the slice of prosperity just ripe for the picking to begin a family and a future. But there were also those who ventured to make a bit of profit from those innocent enough and weak enough not to put up a fight, when so called "accidents" began to happen.

I'm a big fan of the Love Inspired Contemporary and Suspense lines of books, I have read several of both and really enjoyed all of them. But this was my first time reading a Love Inspired Historical, and this was a new to me author so I didn't really know what to expect. But I'm very happy to say that I enjoyed every moment of this book! This book had a great cast of characters and I really liked them all. I read a lot of historical romances but so many things in this book struck me as unique, I ...more

I enjoyed reading this book. It's a sweet love story with just a little bit of suspense thrown in.

Spoiler alert:
Four bad men (The Black Four) are terrorizing the small town of Brave Rock … trying to gain land and therefore unlimited power. Katrine Brinkerhoff almost becomes a victim when The Black Four set fire to her cabin. The Black Four suspects that her brother, Lars, has found out all of their identities, and the group of robbers plan to kill him by setting fire to the cabin with him inside

This was the first book I've sat and read in quite awhile. It was a nice welcome back to the world of reading!

Set in Oklahoma, siblings Lars and Katrine have finally settled down in a cabin. They are making friends and learning more of the language while retaining their native Dutch. One horrible night, their cabin is purposely caught on fire. Katrine is trapped inside and her saving grace is the town sheriff, Clint. Is it fate that he saved her? What of Lars?

Summary: This is a Christian Romance taking place in the wild west of Oklahoma. It is the story of how Clint Thornton, a gloomy Gus, and Katrine, a self-loathing baker, face the danger of confronting a local gang while falling in love.

I think my biggest complaint with the book is the way that the characters view themselves. They find obstacles, and go out of their way to look for reasons why they shouldn't be together, instead of just being happy. They are quick to be happy for other people who

My Review:

Must Katrine pay for her brother's sin? Apparently, the Black Four gang think so, so much so that her family's cabin is added to the long line of homes that have been destroyed. Clint was trying his hardest and fastest to get to the Brinkerhoff homestead before everyone inside lost their lives. He had to find a way to befriend these loons so that he could save his love Katrine. He was able to convince them that the law was hot on their tail and he managed to save Katrine---but barely.

An amazing ending to the Bridegroom Brothers continuity series. These three authors did such an amazing job of creating these characters that I kept forgetting they were written by different people!!! They should do another set :)

Clint Thornton spent his life knowing he would never have a family and it was heartbreaking to him! But especially now as his brothers have found new lives in their lives and a child even.

He's going to learn to be content being single if it kills him. There's crime in

The long awaited pairing! I was itching to see how Katrine and Clint got together and this did not disappoint:) The nastiness of the gang leader doesn't just make Clint grit his teeth, but this is great writing and I can't wait to see what next Allie Pleiter has in store for her readers.
