Wow, I just loved this book the whole way through The characters were very well developed, and the reason for Leah to respond to the ad was quite believable, as well as her strong, but not perfect, faith I also liked the fact that the main characters had Bible names The descriptions of the characters, scenery, and other things were quite endearing and interesting, which slightly surprised me There are some suggestive scenes in the book, such as attempted rape, a kidnapping, and the kidnappers de [...]
I ve never read a book that is about a mail order bride before The reason I read this book is because I received it free after signing up for a bunch of author newsletters like 50 at once from a giveaway a couple weeks ago I was still figuring I wouldn t read the book except for the fact that the blurb said she was running away from a man who wanted to kill her after she married him That isn t the kind of book I generally read either, but for some reason it caught my attention this time As it tu [...]

This was a really good, can t put it down kind of book Quite a lot happens in a short space of time, but it made the story all the adventurous and enjoyable I liked reading about how Leah adapted to ranch life after living a life of luxury and her attempts to bring Gideon out of his silent shell Gideon, Leah and Miriam felt like old friends by the time the book finished and I m looking forward to reading the next one 4.5 stars.
whatever happened with Emily I enjoyed the story The one loose end was a character that was never followed up with Probably just my own complaint because I always want to know what all the characters are up to even when the book is finished
A nice story of survival but a bit too much religion for me.
This is my first book by Beller It was a sweet little romance with quite a bit of intrigue I really liked the idea of the plot, which is what drew me to the book in the first place Girl running from a murderous fiance ends up in the glorious wild mountains Yes please Add the green eyed, broken mountain man and his spunky younger sister and I figured I could at least stick around to see what I thought I loved the scenery, first of all The author writes the setting very convincingly I didn t feel [...]

While this started with the oft used plot of the girl running from an evil suitor, it quickly switched directions I loved the unexpected things that worked together to join Lean and Gideon to one another It s just the way God works good from those things that seem insurmountably bad.I received this book from the author publisher in exchange for my honest review.
If you enjoy historical fiction, ranch life, and romance, this sweet story will warm your heart Enjoy

Offering a free book It s a good marketing plan it s just nice to do For a reader who takes advantage of these, it allows you to find new authors you want to read I wasn t sure what to expect by this romance a genre I don t often too read but what I found was a great story, not a wimpy, sappy sweet romance I enjoyed the characters, setting, the time period The conflicts seemed realistic for the mountains during those early das of settlers Well done, Misty Beller I will read of your books.
Leah s Father arranged a marriage contract for his daughter, then her Father passed away Leah stands to inherit a very large sum after she turns 23 Leah overheard her betrothed talking in den about getting rid of her like his first wife Leah talks to God and decides to go to Montana, where she answers an ad for a wife to a rancher This story is full of twists and endearments and alive with beauty and the wonder of life that we experience thru our faith and trust in The Lord The characters are ri [...]
From the beginning, this book captured my attention I was mesmerized through majority of the book The author brought out many good attributes such as faith and determination I enjoyed reading this storyline and loved the characters This is my first novel to read by Author Misty M Beller, but it will not be my last Fantastic Book I received a complimentary copy from the author This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
Enjoyable storyWhile the idea of a woman running away from an evil man is nothing new, this had several plot twists that were original Who would have thought this genteel young lady would have taken to rough mountain life like she did While the ending wasn t exactly a surprise, getting there was worth the trip.
Very GoodI liked this story It was funny and eye opening I enjoyed the play between the two, Leah and Gideon It was a bit sedate, and cleaner than I am used to So it did feel a bit slower than I like Still this was sweet and kind, and something I will not be ashamed of my Godmama seeing Which is why I chose this.
