She's ready to spread her wings and fly. . . He's scrambling to set down roots.

Unconventional Dally Douglas is as likely to be found wearing her brother’s britches and riding a horse as she is dressed in lace-trimmed finery sipping tea in the parlor. With no plans to wed, she convinces her family to allow her to stay at their ranch in Oregon. Free and unfettered, s

I DON’T CARE ABOUT YESTERDAY, ONLY RIGHT NOW AND TOMORROW

I enjoyed the story that is number eight in the Pendleton Petticoat series. Ms. Hatfield has a way of spinning a story that will take the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The story is a continuation of the series but is told in a way that the reader does not feel lost, and she gives enough background on previous characters without retelling their stories. The story will read well as a standalone novel. I laughed out loud, I sig

It is a wonderful, delightful story & series.

Oh boy this is the best story in the Pendleton Petticoats series at least in my opinion. Shanna Hatfield has packed this story with so much like giving us the peek into the lives of our favorite characters, reminders of so many of the characters lives and what has happened in them, including the book Dacey from the American Mail Order Bride series which it the prequel to this series. This is a wonderful story about Dacey’s daughter Dally who is staying in Pendleton after their whole family has b ...more

Dally is a nice addition to the Pendleton Petticoat series by Shanna Hatfield. Many of us have been waiting for Nik to get his story and it was a pleasure to finally get to read his happy ending/beginning! :)

Dally has the trademark sass and feistiness that many of Ms. Hatfield’s heroine’s exhibit. Her strength rivals that of Aundy, the first heroine in this series. Dally is also more than a bit stubborn, prideful, and competitive. In her youthful arrogance, she has quite an attitude towards Nik

I loved Dally and Nik’s story! Dally knows she wants to marry a cowboy and live on the ranch. Nik is just starting in his medical practice and knows he can only be married to his career right now. Their minds may know these things, but their hearts won’t listen. And what a joy it was to watch as their hearts convinced their minds!

Dally is a spitfire. She’s a strong woman who knows her mind. She’s sassy, caring and passionate. She’s completely comfortable working on the ranch, but still enjoys be

Nik Nash Finally Gets His Own Story

I've been waiting for Nik's story (book 8) since reading Aundy, Pendleton Petticoats, book 1. Was it worth the wait? Heck Yeah!! All Shanna Hatfield books are worth any amount of wait. Shanna is completely dedicated to providing the best books possible for her devoted readers. That is what each and every one is, The Best! I believe the first book of Shanna's that I read was Aundy and I've certainly been a devoted fan since then and can't get enough of her wond

Impossible romance ??? This story
takes us to Pendleton, Oregon in 1910.
Dally Douglas and her brother, Hunter are
getting to stay at the family ranch while the
remainder of the family returns home.
Both want to compete in the first Pendleton

the reader would call a tomboy who loves
horses and ranch living. Her dream is to marry
a cowboy and have a family ranch.
Dr Nik Nash has arrived back in town to join
Dr Reed in the town's practice. Nik has a very

Dally is the 8th book in the Pendleton Petticoats Books but the very first one for me. It is a very sweet historical romance that will make you feel like you live is this great country town. It is still very much a stand-alone book but I would guess if you had read them all a lot of the back story continuing stories of many of the characters would give you more meaning. It is a very descriptive book with a lot of details about the characters and the families. I think personal if I had read the o ...more

As an avid reader I first met Nik as an orphaned shepherd boy. Now he's back in Pendleton as the dashing young Doctor Nash. He's lots of things, but he is not the cowboy Dally is looking for. Fans of Shanna Hatfield fell in love with Dally's parents in Dacey in the American Mail Order Bride series. Dally is such a fun character. She bright and witty. She's gorgeous and high-spirited. She is not the kind of young lady to while away the hours waiting for her doctor-husband to come home!! Watching ...more

Any time I see a book by Shanna Hatfield I have to read it. Her books are fun and so entertaining. "Dally" is book 8 of the Pendleton Petticoat Series. You'll have to read them all, they are wonderful reads. Dally is a delightful character who wants nothing to do with Nik. She has specific ideals about the kind of man she wants to marry and Nik isn't the one. She is spunky, stubborn and finds herself helpless. You'll love her and Nik, as well as the returning characters from the previous books. ...more

Dally ( Pendleton Petticoats Book 8)

Oh my, Shanna! I do believe that Nic is my very favorite hero yet! Handsome, loveable, mischievous, and so giving of his heart. I always loved him from the very first, as a young boy of ten when he showed up at Aundy's doorstep many years ago. Add Dally, sweet, sassy and determined to live her life the way she wants and we have a sweet but fun romance to follow to a HEA, always guaranteed with a Shanna Hatfield book.
The story flows along with wonderful charac

Dally

Nik comes home after studying to be a doctor to help the local doctor, Dally and her brother is in town staying at their family ranch. Dally and her brother are competing in the rodeo. Dally is attracted to Nik but she loves the ranch life and he is a doctor. I fell in love with both of the characters, I look forward to hearing more about the characters in future books. This is part of a series but this is first I have read and still enjoyed it but I would love to read the other books in s

This was a sweet story about a strong willed, horse loving girl who always wanted to marry a cowboy and live on the family ranch. That is until she meets Nik who is the new doctor in town. Then Dally breaks her leg which means spending more time with Nik while fighting her attraction as Nik is also fighting his feelings for her. Can this mismatched couple make a relationship work? They do say opposites attract. I received an advanced copy and this is my honest opinion.

Dally and Nik were wonderful and stole my heart. I loved Dally's sass and spunk and Nik was just perfect in every way. I can see everyone falling in love with him. This book is part of a series and can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the books in order because it is pure pleasure to be able to revisit with all the characters. Shanna Hatfield never disappoints! Book gifted to me. ...more

I'm a huge fan of this series. I loved Nik's character since the very beginning and it's been so fun watching him grow up. Now to have him in his own book - it was so worth the wait! Add in the fact that we get to see Aundy and all the rest of the characters some more, and this book didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this whole series and can't wait to see who Shanna writes about next! ...more

Beautifully Written

Another great story from the author. This as well as others in the series has everything in it. From a caring hero to a feisty heroine. From action packed scenes to soft and caring scenes. Even a bit of history is thrown in and delicious recipes. A win win book that feeds the readers appetite for a good story as well as some good food.

Stubborn people! Love it.

2 people so stubborn they can't see they are made for each other. A great romance story with some twists and turns due to them not talking about what they each feel. Thank you for another great Pendleton story and updates on all the wonderful families I love.

Surprise ending!

I love it when a book gives me a run for my money! So many of these romances start to get a bit boring, as in they're too predictable and expected, but this one kept me guessing! As I've said before, you just can't go wrong with a Shanna Hatfield book! I hope this one sparks your imagination too!

Good read

Dally and Nic’s story was one we’ve all been waiting for after having been charmed by his bravery and faithfulness to his adopted mother at age 14. She and her husband recognized his bright mind and encouraged him in his dream to become a doctor who returned from his studies driving one of the first motorcycles. Quite a character who finally met his match. Enjoy 👍💜

This was a great story with all of the familiar people in this cute little town. I really enjoyed the chemistry between these two and was glad to see Nik get a starring role.
