A fun set of stories with a western flair! Set between 1875 to 1901, from the Colorado Rockies, to the city of St. Louis, and down to Texas, each tale had a different spin on the romance plot. Snappy dialogue and humorous situations in some, plus a mystery, action and adventure, made these all fun to read.

I enjoyed the variety of characters, from a greenhorn sheriff to a tough talking former U.S. Marshal. These men all meet their matches in surprising wa

(4 stars) - amusing short stories of western lawmen & their women

There's a lot of Texas love in these stories, which is reason enough to recommend this book 😉, but the stories are good entertainment as well

(1) On Track for Love by Vickie McDonough
I really liked this one. Feels a little stiff with a few clunky moments but really sweet

(2) Mistaken Marshal by Crystal L Barnes
This is a highly improbable but totally fun story. I enjoyed it very much.

(3) Rocky Mountain Regret by Kathleen Y’Bar

The Lady and the Lawman is a collection of four historical romances. I enjoyed each selection and found them to be well written and entertaining. Thanks to the publisher for my advance ebook. This is my unbiased review.

This e-book was provided to me by Barbour Publishing and Net Galley as an E-ARC. The reviews expressed here are my own.

I love almost all of the Christian Fiction novella collections I can get my hands on. My overflowing bookshelf is a testament to that for sure!

I adore stories of mistaken identity which is why I think Mistaken Mashall was probably my favorite. Closely followed by On Track for Love. Rocky Mountain Regrets had a twist that I wasn't expecting and I am sorry to say that Love Conco

What a fun bunch of sweet, romantic, Christian Westerns. I was not familiar with some of the authors and I love when I get to read and enjoy someone new. Each story had there own setting and a wonderful variety of characters. As the title points out, each of are brides marry a law man. None of them quit new what they were getting into. I found each of the stories to be fun and exciting with a little adventure. But not too heavy. I received a copy of the book from Barbour Books through NetGalley. ...more

Four short stories in a compilation about lawmen and their ladies. I enjoyed reading these stories, each with their own excitement and adventure woven throughout! Good stories written by four authors!
Happy Reading Watching

Sweet, cute, romantic short stories. If you like fast books and westerns this collection of stories is perfect for you.
I'm always in the search of good clean books, it's nice when you can find some.
Over all I would give these 4 stars!

A fun collection of novellas that span across the old west. Each story is filled with adventure, humor, and of course a sweet romance. As the title suggests, all the brides marry lawmen. Another must read collection.
