Prisoners of Love : Miranda is book four in the Prisoners of Love series by Callie Hutton. Wow! I loved this book. I have not read the entire series yet, but this book can definitely stand alone. It had everything a romance fan could want - romance, humor and a few spicy scenes. I really enjoyed the character of Miranda Beamer. She is on the run from her vengeful step brother when she arrives in Santa Fe. Preston Stone needs a wife so that he can be seen by the town as a respectable business own ...more

An enjoyable weekend read! I wish there was a little more back story to Miranda and Preston... and would even like to read Crystal's story (hint hint :)) in future.

I really liked Callie Hutton's Prisoners of Love series and am looking forward to reading Nellie's story (Book 5) once it is released.
This book had all the elements to make it a good read, yet something was missing. Miranda was a sweet and strong lady that found herself in a dangerous situation. By taking matters into her own hands, she sets of a chain of events that includes jail, becoming a Mail-Order bride and being hunted by her evil stepbrother. The poor girl finally gets a break in the form of Preston, a very nice and upstanding local businessman and her new husband. The the story seemed rushed. 3.25Stars

This is the first western book I have ever read and I enjoyed it very much. This is very entertaining story of Miranda and Preston. This adventure has many twists and turns in the story. Miranda is running for her life after killing her stepfather in self-defense. Now her stepbrother, Woody, is out for revenge. I really liked Miranda's character. She is honest, brave, modest, empathetic, loving and intelligent. She was always a lady even though she was never treated as one by her stepfather and ...more

Her plan is to find work in Santa-Fe and go someplace where no one can find her.....hopefully.

Miranda Beamer is the only daughter of a minister. Preston Stone is the son of a prostitute. What, if anything, could bring these two together? She is a mail order bride who killed her stepfather (that part is a secret), and he needs a respectable wife in order to improve his business. Maybe they could come to an agreement, a business arrangement to benefit them both.

I liked and admired Miranda and Preston. Miranda is gentle by nature, modest, loving, and intelligent. Preston is an excellent bus

Always refreshing and a change of pace to get into one that has a different time zone or set in the past. It also gets your imagination going on what would you have done etc. while you are reading too. Now Miranda that is in this one had a very guarded up bringing being a child of a preacher in those days was rough. She also has done a serious deed to be in the predicament she is in now. This is also one that this author has given us alot of drama with it to really spice up what is going on. It ...more

Callie Hutton does it again! Miranda is the 4th book in the Prisoners of Love series and I am so enjoying this historical western series. Callies’s story is so original and the hero and heroine are lovable but the villain you really hate. Her writing has the true western feel and the description are so detailed that you feel like you have escaped into another time and place. This story has abuse, fear, self defense, robbery, kindness, a marriage of convince, dreams, running away and love. I am h ...more

I enjoyed Miranda very much. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a really good historical western romance. It's one of the better new books and high on my list as is Callie Hutton. I read this as a stand alone with no problem, but I'm anxious to read the others in this series very soon.
I received an arc copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Happy release day to this great plot/book!!!

Join a fearless woman accused of killing her own father and on the run because her stepbrother will want to kill her too, with a man who has big business plans but is stuck because he will only be allowed to build his hotel-restaurant if he is married, and you'll have a plot full of improbable things, but lots of fun.

Good fast paced read

Good conclusion to the prisoners of love series, bought and read this in a few hours. I would have liked this book to be included in the bundle that I purchased, but I had to get this one separately, still a good series and would buy and read again.

A woman's challenge

What a great addition to the series. I love Callie Hutton's style. She writes her stories so we the readers are part of the story. Her depiction of a simpler time reminds me of how great American history is and how we must preserve its memories.

This was the most action filled of the series, but still suitable as a stand alone. Worth every star available.

Last of the mail order ladies

This is the last of the mail order ladies who were out in jail for their safety and out on a wagon out of town. Miranda had an abusive step father and shot him in self defense. Her hope is to get a job and save money so she can flee so her step brother can't find her. She ends up married and saving herself. A quick read with a few spelling errors.

Hi Romance Fans,

My historical romances are full of heat, humor, and quirky characters. I’ve always loved history, which was my college major. Things of the past fascinate me. Not those boring history classes in high school, but the history of people. How they lived their lives, what they ate, what they wore, the challenge
