Shelves: western-romance
Enjoyable historical western romance that takes place on a wagon train in 1860. Although the details related to the journey are bare bones, the romance is robustly developed. Spicy scenes and interesting characters enhance this novella. 3.5 rounded to 4 stars.

Addy and Josh.
An enjoyable well crafted western that is comfortably predictable. Yet the depth of the main characters saves it from being formulaic. Josh comes across as tough and uncaring at first but changes as they get to know each other. He releases his prejudices about a woman's place as he gets to know her as a person.
Addy needs to get to Baker City Oregon before her father dies of Tuberculosis/Consumption. She has just graduated as a medical Doctor from Harvard just so she can save him.

Pamela(AllHoney)
Woman wants to go west by taking a wagon train. She is a woman doctor and needs to go to her father in hopes of treating his consumption. She marries the wagon master (in name only) and starts the journey. Needless to say the marriage doesn't stay in name only long. The characters were strong and likable. The story rolled at a good pace and the idea that she had to travel by wagon train, when she needed to get there in such a hurry, didn't ring all that real with me.
