The Lady and the Mountain Man by Misty M. Beller - Review of the first book in the Mountain Dreams series

(taken from
Leah Townsend, a recently orphaned heiress, flees Richmond after discovering her fiancee's plot to kill her after their wedding. She needs a safe place to hide, and finds herself accepting a newspaper marriage proposal from a God-fearing young rancher in the Montana Territory. But when Leah arrives at the mountain ranch, she learns her intended husband was killed by a grizzly, leaving behind a bitter older brother and a spunky younger sister.

When Gideon Bryant finds a city girl standing in his log cabin, his first thought is to send her back where she came from. He's lost too many people to the wild elements of these mountains--his parents, his wife, and now his brother. His love for this untamed land lives on, but he's determined not to oen his heart to another person.

But when an accident forces Leah to stay at the ranch for seven more months, can Gideon protect his heart from a love he doesn't want? Has Leah really escaped the men who seek her life?

WOW and DOUBLE WOW! Misty grabs hold of you with the first line in this book and she doesn't let go!!!!! Grab a-hold and hang on is all I can say. Her writing style is great and I don't see how anyone that enjoys Historical Fiction would be disappointed in this book.

I have had this on my Kindle for quite some time and finally randomly picked it to read. Now I'm mad because I waited so long. So far there are four books in this series with a fifth one due out in April of this year. Yes, I will be getting the rest in this series!
