A Rancher of Convenience by Regina Scott - Review of the third book in the Lone Star Cowboy League

Sweet mail-order bride Nancy Bennett can't believe it when her husband is exposed as a cattle rustler--and killed. And when the banker holding the ranch's mortgage questions whether she can run the ranch on her own, the pregnant widow has nowhere to turn. Until steady foreman Hank Snowden proposes marriage...

Racked with grief about his role in Lucas Bennett's death, Hank resolves to do right by theman's wife and child. So it's natural for him to step in as Nancy's newly minted husband. But the marriage of convenience may become more than a mere obligation...if only Hank and his bride can brave the first steps toward elusive true love.

I have enjoyed many of Regina's books and this one was just as enjoyable. I loved the story line and how she told the story. You get pulled into the book and want to read quickly. There are a few twists to keep you interested. I can recommend this as a good read if you like Inspirational Historical Romance books.

I was given this book by Regina as a member of her review team for an honest review.

No Other Will Do by Karen Witemeyer - Review of the first book in the Ladies of Harper's Station

She Trusts Him for the Job,
But Can She Trust Him With Her Heart?

Men are optional. That was the credo Emma Chandler's suffragette aunts taught her and why she established Harper's Station, a women's colony that offers a fresh start to females in need. But when a dangerous and shadowy assailant tries repeatedly to drive the women out, Emma is forced to admit they might need a man after all. One who can fight. And there is only one man she trusts enough to ask.

Malachi Shaw has finally earned the respect he's always craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma's telegram arrives, he rushes back to Texas to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she's not a girl any longer. She's a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn't deserve.

As the danger intensifies, Emma, Mal, and the ladies of Harper's Station must choose safety or whether to risk everything to fight for their future.

Karen is one of my favorite authors and with this book, she reminds me why. Have you ever heard of an all woman town in historical times, I hadn't, and it makes a great story. All I can say is, if you haven't read any of Karen's work, give this book a try. I'm guessing who the next book will feature so I'm anxious to see if I'm right!
