HASH(0x9d2f866c) out of 5 stars A Great Western! 22 Aug. 2007
By penny2400 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I don't often to this, but I picked up this book because of the cover. Once I read the summary, I decided it sounded like a good read, and it was! I"m posting the back cover summary because it actually does a great job of describing the book.

Now I'm looking forward to reading Lasso the Moon.

From the back cover:
Emily McBride is in a pickle. The preacher's daughter secretly writes scandalous romantic adventures. But someone's uncovered her secret talent and threatens to expose her double life. Her small town friends and the man of her dreams will never speak to her again. Worse, she's growing fond of her new friend, a literary poet, who would surely be horrified by her novels.

When the Peacemaker Alliance recruits lawman Seth Wright, he's ready, willing, and able to kick ruthless desperado butt for the covert government agency. His enthusiasm wanes, however, when his first assignment takes him to California to propose marriage to Miss Emily McBride on behalf of his boss, and deliver her back to Arizona Territory. He's a lawman, not a courier. Worse, the small town librarian mistakes him for a dandified poet! Before he sets her straight, she confesses she's mixed up in something tawdry. With two unwanted suitors hounding her, the woman needs protection. So Seth assumes the fancy pants identity to room in her house without compromising her reputation.

Seth's good intentions take a monumental twist when he develops genuine feelings for the passionate book lover. She's not what she seems. More jolting, neither is he.

Format: Kindle Edition
Librarian and daughter of a minister Emily McBride seems to fit the double stereotype. She's shy, demure, loyal and has been in love with Rome Garrett her whole life. Almost everyone on Heaven adore her. After her father died, men suddenly began proposing, but Emily's backbone was strong, and she said no. Yet Emily had other problems which included a blackmailer. Why would this sweet woman have a blackmailer.
Former sheriff, Seth Wright received 3 assignments from 3 different people all with the same results. Bring Emily to Chance to see her friend Paris, who would soon have a baby. Each person had special reasons from bringing Emily to Chance. Josh, Paris's husband wanted Emily there because the baby would be due soon, and he wanted to please his wife. Athens Garrett wanted Emily there for Emily, but also to be his wife and to take care of his two lively children. It wouldn't be a love match, but it would free him up for his newest assignment. Paris wanted Emily there because she missed her, but she also knew Emily was being blackmailed and Paris wanted Emily safe.
Paris has telegrammed Emily that Phineas Pinkerton would be arriving and would Emily please take him as a boarder. As Phineas wasn't the most manly of men, there really should be no questions as to his boarding with Emily. There was a last minute change in plans and Seth would be going to save the day instead. When he arrived, the situation demanded he keep the Pinkerton persona and he had no opportunity to tell the shy little librarian who he really was.
How can Emily suddenly begin feeling things for the gentle Poet when she has always been "in love" with Rome? There seems to be a powerful connection between the two souls. How can this be? And Seth is fighting his feelings because he is suppose to deliver Emily to his boss to be his bride, so the ruse really seems to suit his purposes, too. But Seth is determined to help Emily solve her other issues, especially her blackmailer.
Ciotta has written other cute Western filled with fraught, humor and passion. Historicals aren't my favorite books, but I really did enjoy this and will definitely read the 3rd installment in the series.
Review in exchange for copy.
HASH(0x9e3e7864) out of 5 stars Romancing the West- A Joyfully Recommended Title 4 Mar. 2008
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Emily McBride is being blackmailed. The preacher's daughter, who now runs a boarding house after the death of her parents, secretly writes dime novels. Now, someone has found out, and they want her money. As the blackmailer depletes her savings, Emily has other fish to fry. She has received two marriage proposals from men she's not interested in, and she's fallen for her male border, who happens to be a "nancy boy." Life is very tough for Emily right now.

Seth Wright's first job for the Peacemaker Alliance is to go to California and deliver a marriage proposal to Emily on behalf of Athens Garrett, his boss. Then Athens's sister, Paris, tells Seth of the blackmail and asks him to solve the problem. But when he gets to California, Emily mistakes him for a poet who favors men. Nothing could be further from the truth, but it's a good cover while Seth investigates Emily's problem and tries to help her solve it.

As Emily and Seth get closer, his masquerade brings up interesting situations for the preacher's daughter, who figures Seth is the perfect candidate for showing her how some things are done, like kisses that produce, well, hard feelings.

I'm ashamed to say this is my first Beth Ciotta novel. But it won't be my last. Full of witty repartee and characters that are larger than life, I was hooked on the first page. The character's antics made me laugh out loud. I feel in love with both Emily and Seth, and rooted for them to realize they were perfect for each other.

Emily and Garrett romanced my heart. I can't wait to read the first book in the series and eagerly await the third, to see who comes along to handle the delicious Rome Garrett.

Romancing the West is a definite Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read.

HASH(0x9d470d44) out of 5 stars Fast-paced, twisty plot, fun read! 29 July 2015
By Deidre Motto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have loved everything this author has written, Contemporary, to Steampunk, to Paranormal, to the first book in this series, "Lasso The Moon". I was given a free copy of this book to review, but couldn't get it to load, so I bought it. So, I am going to gush away, since I paid for this and was in no way compensated!

The second book in the Peacemakers series is my favorite, out of all of her books. Everything just clicks, from the characters, to the plot twists, to the small details in the story. I can't put a finger on exactly what made this book stand out, but she was swinging for the fences and hit it out of the park.

The main characters border on fish-out-of-water, due to the plot twists, yet remain totally likable, and will have you rooting for them, even as you wait to see how their transgressions and mis-directions will iron out in the end. Part of the reason that this book stood out, for me, is that these characters made some major "oopsies", but they are so well written and multi-dimensional, that their personalities made these forgivable, and you want to see their happily ever after, even as you want to see them get some kind of comeuppance.

This is a fast-paced, twisty, fun read. I can't wait to dig in to the 3rd book of the series.

Romancing the West by Beth Ciotta

A rollicking good time in the old Wild West. Lots of humor, plenty of adventure and a female heroine who learns to support herself and stand on her own.
I typically don't read a lot of historical romance. I guess I consider it boring. Not this author. It was really fun. And the men are hot and sexy too.

Seth Wright, Former ranger, former sheriff, is offered the position of a elite government agent. His first mission is to find Emily McBride and present a marriage proposal on behalf of his new boss. At the same time, Paris has asked Seth to help Emily find a blackmailer. Seth shows up in town and Emily thinks he is a poet come to help. Hilarity ensues.

A couple of quotes I found entertaining.
“The mere thought of those shifty pricks made Seth mad as a peeled rattler."

“Taking orders from a man who substituted dad-blame-it for goddammit made Seth’s ass twitch.”
Excerpts From: Ciotta, Beth. “Romancing the West: A Wild West Romance (Book 2).”
