The Vigilante's Bride

Emily McCarthy has just learned that the orphanage she has been with for as long as she can remember is having her shipped to Montana as an answer to an ad for a mail order bride for a wealthy rancher named Bart Axel.

Only being 18, she is told that her prospects of finding a man where she is currently is slim at best and seeing as she would most likely be well cared for by Mr. Axel the arrangements for her trip have already been made.

Bart Axel is a very wealthy rancher, but not an honest one. He's made most of his money swindling honest people out of their land, cattle and anything else in order to make a buck and gain the potential for making even more money if the railroad decides to buy the rights to the land. He's even been accused of killing his last wife, but no one has been able to prove that except to say the "accident" seems suspicious. However when he learns he is about to gain an 18 year old wife, he is more than content with his latest conquest.

Luke Sullivan has spent most of his life as an orphan being raised by Miss Molly. Now for the past few years he has joined Grant Stuarts vigilance committee in order to keep law and order on the open ranges. Whenever cattle is stolen or breaking the law occurs, the committee is the one to deal the swift hand of justice. When Luke Sullivan learns that his family had been swindled out of the land in a bad game of cards, courtesy of Bart Axel, Luke is going to settle the score once and for all.
Upon seeing Axle's banker in Montana taking his latest "treasure" back to the ranch, Luke finds that this is the time to settle the score. However when he learns that the "treasure" is the mail order bride for Bart Axel on the stage, he isn't about to let this one go.

I received the book, The Vigilante's Bride by Yvonne Harris, compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. This was such a great western romance book for me to read. I loved getting to know the characters Ms. Harris brings to life on the pages of her latest novel. This one will not disappoint readers. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars for the way the story draws you in from the first page. If you would like to know more about the book, the author or even catch a first glimpse at chapter one, read further.

Montana Territory, 1884...Is Her Kidnapper the Only Man Who Can Keep Her Safe?

Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and abducting a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expected to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from his pa, but instead ended up rescuing a feisty copper-haired woman who was on her way to marry Sullivan's dangerous enemy. Emily McCarthy doesn't take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she's hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Luke has crossed a vicious man, a powerful rancher not used to losing, and Emily is the prize he's unwilling to sacrifice.
