As with the other books there is danger lurking in the background. Again an interesting book with intriguing characters, including those we have met before. A good story to while away a couple of hours.
Third book in this series and Cynthia does not disappoint. I have read all the book in this series all are really good, very difficult to put down once you start reading. Looking forward to the next one.

Erin has lost her job and besides to become a mail order bride. Henry is a big man and looking for a wife he falls for Erin right away. It's a great story.
Central City Blacksmith, Henry Jacobs, has decided he wants what his friends, Jack Colton and Seamus “Lucky” Madigan have a bride and future. So he sends off a letter to Margaret Selby of Matchmaker & Co. and hopes to find a wife and eventually a family.
Erin O’Toole hates the gangs that are so prevalent in New York, and after the death of her brother, Ian, in a gang war, she wants something better for her life. She knows her father is in a gang and fears he will use her in an arranged marriage to gain grounds. Working as a maid will end when the owner's son accosts her, she escapes the home, but with no future left in New York. Now is the perfect time to leave the gangs of New York and go west to become a mail order bride. She will see Mrs. Selby and is matched up with Henry Jacobs of Central City, Colorado and this will set this tale into motion.
The plot will have Erin arriving and met by Henry and married on the same day. Henry tells her that he is incapable of loving her, but that he will treat her right, protect her, and like her, he wants to have children. Erin is open and honest about her hatred of gangs and how she left New York to escape that type of lifestyle that her family is involved. When someone from Henry’s past shows up in Central City, he threatens Erin’s safety to get what he wants from Henry. When she learns that Henry’s past has secrets of gang related activity, she must decide if she can remain or will she leave. The problem is, she has fallen in love with her husband, even if he claims he can’t love her, and now the desires of her heart is a real possibility. Can these two find a middle ground for a future and will they learn to love each other? The story is a steamy romance without explicit details.
“I won’t give up. He will love me. We can have a loving and happy marriage.”
Disclosure: I received an e-copy of this book and voluntarily read and reviewed. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.
Cynthia Woolf is known for her romantic-western books on mail-order brides. The subject of mail-order brides is an interesting idea that was an integral part of bringing women into the west. Around the middle 1800s very few women lived would make good wives. I find this an interesting idea because it is so foreign from our lifestyle and, therefore, hard for us to understand.
This novel takes place in 1870. Twenty-four year old Erin travels into the Colorado Territory to marry Henry Jacobs, a blacksmith
Erin O’Toole is a very strong woman. This is a necessary trait for a mail-order bride because it is a difficult journey for a young woman. Alone, Erin makes an extremely long trip on a train. She, then, takes a stage coach for the rest of her journey. This trip takes several days and is extremely uncomfortable. She ends up in an unknown area to wed a man she does not know. And her marriage takes place before they even make it back to Henry’s home.
This book is a love story with a lot of romance and a little bit of love-making. The love-making is important to the plot because the author is highlighting the fact that the woman has no idea what to expect, and her new husband does everything he can to help her through her first time. I enjoyed this part very much because it is romantic and loving.
This novel, also, has a touch of intrigue. Henry has a secret from his past that he is keeping from Erin. This secret comes back to haunt Henry and causes problems in his new marriage.
I enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it. Ms. Woolf is one of the few clean western authors who still write. Also, Ms. Woolf’s books are quick reads which are a nice change for in-between my longer books.
