To win the woman of his dreams, Parker takes matters into his own hands. And finds out the West is wilder than he ever imagined!

Just take her.

The advice seems radical, but Parker West is desperate. Try as he might, he cannot convince Celia Evans to marry him in the usual way, even after five years of courtship. Kidnapping her is drastic and rash, but he figures he has litt

So glad Melissa told me about this one and she loaned it to me. I couldn't put it down. Love a man who claims and keeps..
Parker would have me giggling because he just fumbled everything he wanted to say. Celia was not the typical shy mannered lady. She gave back and loved fiercely. These two were some kind of combustible force.
So sexy and sweet and funny too . The side romance was heartbreaking and bittersweet then I had tears for John and Alice when it all came together. I love this authors s

3.5 stars!

3.5 stars, good but it's not exactly my favorite.

Why? Mostly because Parker is a bit too "pushy" for me. I know, I know it's kinda adorable but the change in him is too fast and I don't feel the chemistry. It's almost like he's forcing his way and I don't really like that.

But overall I enjoyed it. The ending is a bit too rushed but I liked it anyway. Look forward to read the next installment of this series.

This was a nice story, but in comparison to some of the reads I have had the pleasure to get my hands on lately, it just didn't excite me a huge amount.

It was sweet, sexy and well written, but just not enough wow for me.

My honest opinion is that I just didn't care what happened. DNF.

Another great story with Emma Wildes' trademark sizzling romance with a touch of action and mystery. Although this was more of a novella than a full-length book, it was just as good for its short length. The two main characters are already in love at the start of the book, but the heroine has refused to marry the hero of the story because she believes that he only sees her as good wife material and feels nothing for her at all. Long story short, the main characters manage to work things out and ...more

That was so good - I loved it!

Our heroine mistakenly thinks our hero is the sweet, boy next door and fails to see what else he possesses until she pushes him too far! Luckily, he is the boy for her, and she has always known it, but was waiting for him to make his move. When he finally does, she is more than willing to meet him half-way!

Our hero has had it with the little tease, he stumbles over words and actions until he can't take it anymore. She pushes all his buttons, and is acutely aware of
I absolutely loved the way Celia saved a horse. And boy, did she ever saved a horse... Being a bad girl that she was, she liked riling up Parker by cussing and using crude words. Very hilarious. A fast paced western-suspense-romance, I loved every single pages it.

The plot had some potential but all of the dramatic action parts were raced over, and one of the subplots barely concluded, which was slightly disappointing, so all in all it was between meh and alright, but not stellar
