From USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly
Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the
Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion
. . .
What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a
bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichaelâ€”an
independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses.
Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error,
but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man
sheâ€™s never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart
along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to
care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the
unmistakable desire in his gaze.
Reganâ€™s far from the docile bride Colton was expecting.
Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory
for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The
thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his
lifeâ€”and in his armsâ€”begins to inspire a new dream. And
despite his familyâ€™s disapproval and an unseen enemy, heâ€™ll
risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.

You have listed many books I had not heard of as well as
several I have been interested in. I came to the romance
genre late, in my 50's. My introduction was Julie Garwood's
historical books. They tend to be my comfort reads.
RANSOM is my favorite. THE WEDDING, THE BRIDE, THE
SECRET, SAVING GRACE, and THE PRIZE have all been
repeat reads over the years. Two of Kat Martin's historicals
are also repeat reads. I have many books on my keeper
shelf (more like a room) is full of books I loved and really
would love to read again. Time is just not my friend. There
are so many new books out there to explore. Even self-
isolating isn't helping me get more read.

A good romance with mystery, suspense, humor, angst, an undeniable chemistry
between characters and an HEA.
(Tracy Urschler 9:09am March 25, 2020)
I started reading romances in the late 80's: Nora Roberts, Joanna Lindsey, Laurie McBain, Catherine Coulture, Elizabeth Lowell, Linda Lael Miller, Betty Neels, Sandra Brown,Julie Garwood, Kat Martin,Joan Honl,Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer, Judith McNaught...I did not like it when several switched to Romantic Suspense. Next came Lori Foster, Karen Hawkins,Carly Phillips, Jill Shalvis, Susan Mallery, Lisa Kleypas, VLT, SEP,Julia Quinn, Robyn Carr, RaeAnne Thayne, Karen Ranney, Susan Wiggs, Susan Anderson,Jillian Hunter, Jillian Hart, Madeline Hunter, Charlene Sands, Lorraine Heath, Julia London, Eloisa James, Sherryl Woods...
I still turn to contemporary and historical romances for comfort. Over the past year I've tried so many new authors: Shannon Stacey,Stacy Finz, Maisey Yates, Jennifer Probst,Sheila Roberts,Belle Calhoune, Hope Ramsey, Kristy Macafferty, Kate Meader, Maggie Wells, Delores Fossen, Sharon Hartley, Virginia Kantra, Jessica Clare, Samantha Chase...
I am in awe of the author's talent, the variety and diversity of subject matter, their dedication to the romance genre and all things romance.
As an avid reader, I thank them all and look forward to many more years of HEA's!
